So, I was sitting here thinking to myself the otherday (and after reading Prizm's post about his list) that I need to make a list of everything I need to aquire prior to a possibly really really bad election year.

I haven't placed pen to paper yet but I have some good ideas thus far. Any one else thinking they may need to stock up on a few extra goodies in the next 6-8 months?? Here are some thoughts I had

1. 2-3 AR Lowers
2. A POF .308 Lower
3. AAC Cans (M4-200 in 6.8, 7.62-SD and a 9mm)
4. Lots of P-Mags
5. lots of SR-25/DMPS mags
6. XCR-M
7. GSG-5 with Gemtech and SBRed
8. Extra Hi Cap mags for any pistols I own (M&Ps, SIGs)
9. ~10 more 6.8 mags
10. Build my 9mm AR (7.5 inch barrel)
11. Build a 45 ACP AR
12. Add a few more AR lowers to the list

That is about all I can think of right now, I am sure there are a few things I am missing.

Feel free to make suggestions.

Aziator, it's scary how much your list resembles mine. You've overlapped with me on several things some of which I have completed but only cause I started a while ago.
1. I have 3 lowers and just bought a 4 which will be going through the NFA process in a week or so.
2. Got the whole POF.
3. I want an ACC 7.62 can.
4. Got lots of P mags but am ordering more this week.
5. Ordered 15 DPMS mags, but want to order 5 or so of the C Products .308s.
6. XCR-M... YES!
7. Nothing here.
8. I called last week about M&P hi caps... everyone is out.
9. I want 15 6.8 mags in case I ever get one.
10. Built an AR 9mm shorty a few years ago.
11. Get a M&P .45, hopefully within 2 weeks.
12. See 1.
13. Get ACR/SCAR if I can, before I can't.

I have tons of ammo and keep buying it as I find it cheap.

That's all I can think of.

My list is pretty much the same but I will second the PTR-91 to go along with my M1A and FAL. Heck, I am even looking at a GSG-5 for plinking.

seems to me that your priorities are about ok, with one MAJOR exception.... massive quantities of ammo. that is the one area that they may suceed in getting. additionally the guns and accessories will not appreciably increase in value nor will they increase in price significantly. Ammo is a whole other story tho. it really makes good financial sense to limit the arsenal to a few critical calibers and then stockpile ammo as high as you can.

Magazines are another good asset to keep around. they make good barter items and can be difficult or expensive if a nother ban goes thru.


all the guns in the world wont do you a bit of good if you don't have ammo to feed them. it should always be on or near the top of ones list. (think 10K per caliber as a minimum and 10 mags per gun as a minimum)

optics should be very low on the list. as should aquireing any duplicates of existing weapons. any new calibers should bump an old one.

I guess I should have put my ammo on there. I have been aquiring bullets when they are good prices (have 8K for 6.8 and 4K for 5.56 ready to be reloaded). I am working on building up my powder and primer stocks. This is all tough with a trip to Italy promissed to the Boss for our 10 year anniversary (next May). I am slowly building it all up though.

OOO I can play. This is a wishlist too...

#1. Atleast 5 more PMAGS
#2. Case 5.56
#3. M1 Garand from OCSP
#4. Some .308 EBR ... XCR-M, LWRC, something, SOCOM II ...
#5. Ammo for above

PMAGS won't be an issue for me, the ammo won't be too much of an issue... I need about 1K more rounds... don't shoot very often but better get it now. Been drooling over the Garand for awhile. I want to get a service grade and shoot it for the history sake and keep it around for collecting. I would like an M1A Scout or something like that... but there are lots of other .308's that I like.

8k 6.8? Are you loading your own 6.8? That's awesome. I have 6K 7.62x39, 5500 5.56, 5k 9mm, 2k.45, and 3500 .308, not including the precision stuff. My goal is to continue to buy it (per my earlier post) as long as I find it reasonable. I'd like to get my .45 and .308 stock up a little more. My buddy said it best, "buying ammo is so anti-climactic".

Awsome lists guys!!! I edited mine a little.

1) More silencers (I have .22lr, and 9mm. I want 5.56 & 7.62)
2) Bushmaster ACR (but it wont be out until next spring).
3) DPMS LR-308, because the mags will fit the XCR-M.
4) XCR-M (whenever it comes out)

I always want more ammo and mags. I keep about 5k rnds of ammo in 9mm military ball, and over I know I have over 10k in M193 & M855.
BTW: How long is 5.56 viable? If I keep it in ammo cans with silica? Some of the cans are dated in the 1980's.

Hey Gr8, have you ever refinished AR mags? I've done thousands, pretty easy.

Yeah, mine was a stupid question. He DuraCoats everything, which is probably better. I just refinished them with Permaslik-G (its a Molylube dry-film the like original) and baked them to restore them.

I forgot to add that I wanted to get the 7.62 x 39 conversion kit, ammo, and mags.

Oh well... #1, #2, and ammo for the kit are ordered ;D
