Here's a scenario: you have an extra $2,000 in the safe and you want to "invest" it in your G&A hobby (you can't save it...you HAVE to spend it in the next 30 days on something firearms related). What do you spend it on....more guns you don't need? Overpriced ammo? Optics?

Personally, I'm happy with my hardware collection, so I'd find the best deals I could on ammo, and I might sacrifice some rounds on an RMR. On the other hand, the MPX is going for about $2,000 these days, so.....

I think I’d try out one of the new deluxe case hardened Winchester 1886s and buy some extra ammo for it. My other gun needs are all covered.

I think it comes down to the deal, value. I recently got some ‘fun money’, near the same amount. I has half ready to add it into the checking account, instead I left it as cash in the safe. I look at a gun sorta what it’s like to buy a bank CD. If course depending on the deal.

So far I added a Beretta 92 Compact then a Colt 1911 to the stable. Fun money is supposed to be FUN.

If you haven't already (or even if you have) a training class (and some ammo for it) is always a good option.
I just added that as an option. Votes are changeable (I think...)

I voted ammo since I have to limit my shooting. But for the whole $2k I would get a 48 MOS new holsters for the 48 and my 17, 2-3 additional mags for each then the rest on ammo. A new gun shop opened a few weeks ago and they have lots of ammo last weekend it was 20% off. They had 9mm from 65 to 147 grain in several brands.

I'd like to add another Mosin-Nagant to my collection and a Remington 870 police magnum shotgun. I'd probably purchase another milsurp rifle or two and spend the rest on ammo and military surplus accessories to go with the rifles.

I should be taking my wife on a nice outing, but if it has to be firearms...

I'm ok waiting on ammo in hopes prices improve.

My schedule doesn't allow an out of town training class right now.

I'd probably get two moderately nice guns.

One would be a 4" K6s.

The other...???... I'm still deciding.

I think most people would completely agree with you, but this is a hypothetical situation where you have $2k and you have to spend it on "gun stuff" in the next 30 days. I'd love to hear what your vote is.

I would get a Saint Victor .308 (it’s been on order, since May) $1,250 (after tax).
A G26.5 (assuming certain things fall into place) $450 (after tax).
$300 of ammo, as available when I pick up the firearms.

Next would be a training class, if the ammo didn’t use up all the $300, but $300 wouldn’t be enough to pay for much of a class, so it would be a start in the “class” fund.

I’d buy a nice-ish 1911 ~$1,200, a few extra mags, holster & some ammo.

Hmm, I am pretty good shape with everything BUT that Beretta 92X Performance I saw at LGS the other day was sweet and with change left over maybe the Smith and Wesson Shield Plus to try out.
