Chip said:Buddy J, just bought an AK-47 myself. I pick it up Nov 28th. It's pre-ban, 30rnd clip with 6 position stock 762x39 threaded barrel. It's the Romanian WASR which isn't known for the best quality, but it was new and I got a pretty good deal on it.The rest of my collection is fairly modest:9mm Taurus PT-99 with preban 15rnd and 18rnd clips12gauge single shot shot shotgunOld .410 bolt action with 5 rnd fixed clip (ya,... it's weird)Couple of semi-auto .22s
Buddy J said:Jared, for a handgun, check out the Glocks and new Springfield XD pistols. Both are nice guns. You've just gotta find something that fits your hand. A 9mm is a great caliber for a pistol. It packs a decent punch unlike a .22, yet is still inexpensive enough for plinking with. If you don't like "plastic" guns, a CZ75 or Browning Hi-Power make a good choice. It's all about what you're comfortable with.Nice collection Riptide. Looks like you're well set for punching holes in paper. I haven't been to the range in forever, but hope to do it soon. I've got a Yugo 8mm Mauser coming soon that needs broken in, and my friend's dad has some other military surplus guns that we'd like to shoot. I'm considering buying a 1895 Nagant revolver soon. They're $70 and one of the few revolvers ever that can be suppressed.
Buddy J said:Cool Chip! I didn't know you shot. DeathJester has a WASR-10. It took a bit of tinkering to get it to work right, but now it shoots like an AK should. We found that replacing the steel magazines with modern Bulgarian poly mags made for a tighter fit in the magwell. No more feed problems. Looks like you're all set. Have you taught your kids to shoot the .22s yet?

jared said:Ah good thread. I'll add to it with a question.Currently I don't own any hand guns, just a deer rifle and a shotgun. I'm thinking about getting a Glock sometimes after Christmas. I've shot one before and thought it had a pretty good feel and the price is good :DAnyone else have one or have any suggestions for a hand gun similar?:jared:
