For my next gun, I can't decide what to get....
.308 bolt action rifle
Mossberg 500 shotgun
Mossberg 590A1 shotgun
S&W M&P 9mm
S&W M&P 45
.357/.38 Special revolver
Each has their good and bad points. So many choices, so little cash...
I would jump on the AR-15. They are at an all time low as far as price goes.
As for a 1911 if you want a nice entry level mil surplus. Go with High Standard & remember when you are looking at the Rock Island 1911, you are really looking at a High Standard made in the Philippines. No need to pay the extra money for the engraved name of an Armory that has been closed for decades. I have 2 HS 1911s & both are good hand guns.
