Glock 27 with a Crimson Trace laser grip
Ruger LCP
Ruger 10/22 take down

What would be your "roll" for your next gun? Are you looking to carry it. Do you want something with more grip/ rounds. Are you looking for a pistol or rifel

Don't know what role. I have my CCW and am well taken care of with my Glock 27 and Ruger LCP for carrying. I don't know why or what I need another gun for, but can not accept that I do not need another.

Then i would recommend a range gun that you can upgrade everything on. I personally did this to my glock 35 that I use for competition. I had target sights put on it. Had a trigger job done. Put a 15ld non captures recoils spring put in it. I love this pistol. It is a dream to shoot but I never carry it.

Do you ever really need a reason to buy another gun? I have a great one to carry and a great one for the range. However I have quite a long list of ones that I want just because I don't have them.

This might sound wired but I have a specific reason for every gun I buy. I bout a 23 first as a all around gun. My 35 for a target gun. I want a 21 for HD and open carry. a 30 and 26/27 for cc. A remington 870 for HD. A couple of 1911 just to collect and a few others for competition. And a sig p229 enhanced in 357 sig to collect.

I was thinking a very long distance varmint rifle, a mini 14, or a S&W Shield in 9 or 40.

A friend and I are planning a trip to Shreveport soon. We plan on doing a day of pawn shops. Amazing how well stocked pawn shops in casino towns are.

I say go with a long range varmint rifle. You could go with the AR platform and then get a different upper later for regular use, or just a different barrel.

What would be the cost of a long range varmint rifle in an AR format? What caliber would you suggest? Is 223 a flat shooting option?

223 is a good round. Varmint/ target barrels aren't too terribly expensive either. You can get a DPMS bull barrel for around 250.

I would go with the AR. Easy to get parts for, LOTS to customize, fun as hell to shoot, and its .223/5.56 round is easy to come by. Its like the 9mm of rifles :D

Of course you need another. It's simple mathematics. The correct number of guns to own (C) is defined by the following equation:C=N+1, where N is defined as the number you currently own.

Sometimes you just will not know why you needed a particular gun until after you have it. An AR is a good option given what you can do with it, but the Shield is a great gun. It doesn't have to be a one or the other thing, just a matter of the order in which you acquire them:D
