    I'm buying one of these for myself for fathers day, actually sooner once I decide with the glock fams help.
    Another glock 23 or 19? I have a 17
    Shotgun - either mossberg 500 or remington tactical 870
    Ak47 - still undecided on manufacturer
    Carbine 9mm - thinking ke ltec or hi point
    This will be my last firearm for the year so I need to make it worth it.

    Being a 23 owner myself, I may be a biased opinion but the addition of a compact .40 to the clan was perfect for me, sweet gun as well!! Gen 4

    I'd like to have one of the Mossberg 590A1's. Haven't bought a new shotgun in awhile, & it's time to give my Winchester 12's a rest.

    This was my fathers day present. I'm loving it. However, the wife doesn't know it yet but I'm getting a Ruger SR1911 too. If and when I find one.

    I bought the Remington 887 a couple months back and love it. They have it in a tactical version also with shorter barrel, extended magazine (8 rounds, I think), top rail and mini rail out front. It's not an 870 but it's nice. Also has the ArmorLok (dont hold me accountable for spelling) coating on it for durability. It shoots 2 3/4, 3, and 3 1/2 shells. Great alternative to the 870 for less than $400.

    Looks good. I have to look one of the SR1911s up, never seen one.

    Would you say its a downgrade from the 870? Either way I'm sure its great.

    I wouldn't say a downgrade just different option and look. It's got a composite stock and real solid feel which is what I liked compared to the mossbergs that I looked at.

    19 or 23 is a hard choice both are good, if for SD .40 if plinking 9mm.

    I like Mossbergs but you might also consider Benelli Nova.

    Get an Arsenal, accept no substitutes.

    Why not a Beretta Storm. Its much more stylish and uses 92FS mags.

    The ones I've seen are American made but they have some Bulgarian ones too. I'm not sure if its 10 rd mag only models or they have enough US parts to use hicap mags.

    Arsenal is importing Saiga AK's from Russia in addition to their offerings.

    Really? I have been reading on them and I feel like I'm going with one. Unconverted vs converted? Still haven't made up my mind.
