So I sold the Savage .22 and the Rem 870 (real short on cash a couple months ago) and have been saving to replace them. I've got about $200 to blow right at the moment.

I also want something in 5.56, either an AR or that beautiful SIG 556 I posted a thread about.

Which ones of the options above would you get, and why?

I want the 10/22 to plink, the 500 to hunt/shoot skeet/HD with, and the AR just because every man needs an AR.


ETA: I know the AR and the SIG are way more than my budget, just wondering if it'd be worth my time to try and save even more to get them.

Its a toss up between the .22 and the shotgun. Everybody needs both. I said .22 just because of ammo costs.

Go with the 10/22 their cheap to buy and the ammo cost is low.

I really thought I would hate to shoot any kind of 22 again because my dad gave me my first 22 at the age of 13 for my birthday. Then found the world of high power rifles at 17 after that I thought I would never shoot a 22 again but the Ruger Rocks my World :minigun: . I can do some cheap Bump fire with it without paying the ammo cost.

Get an AR lower and save up for the rest of it. You can get a complete lower for about that. Or a stripped lower for around $100 or so.
But the lower itself won't go "BOOM!" at the range.

Of course, neither will the 22, but you know what I mean...

Well you gotta start somewhere. I'd have the AR towards the top of the list. With the upcoming presidential election, it may be difficult to get them after a little while. I don't think the 10/22 is that high on the ban list. It'd be fun to get a little bit of it and save up. Makes you appreciate it a little more.

gsu,

Do you have a firearm that will take care of HD? If so get the 10/22, tons of fun with little expence for ammo.

If you are concerned about HD do the 500 then a 10/22 later. Home comes first

I have a TINY studio apartment. No matter where I am in here the Sig is less than 5 seconds away, and the AK is about 15 seconds away from firing (full mag, nothing in the pipe, but ready otherwise)

If the pistol can't do it then I'm screwed anyway.

10/22 it is. But a 12ga at the range is also a lot of fun.... :?

Plus, my boss invited me to shoot in a clay tournament to raise money for her son's high school academic boosters.

Decisions, decisions... I'm definitely not buying anything until after the gun show.

You can't decide whether you want to go shooting to make your female boss happy? Wow...

No, I can't decide if I want to spend the money on a shotgun (which I would need to go shooting to make my female boss happy) or on a 22 (which I want and would make me happy).

Ammo isn't an issue either way. I've still got a few hundred rounds of 12ga leftover from the last shotty, and several thousand of cheap Federal .22.

Ya, what kind of shells? Bring them to the Fall Luncheon and I am sure you could unload them quickly.
I was thinking maybe about buying them. I only have 25 shells right now. I was going to pick up a case the other day, but the loads were too light for the action to cycle (according the the manufacturer).
