I buy guns that I want and sometimes I buy guns that I'm not particularly interested in if they are a particularly good deal. Since the 2020 elections there haven't been many good enough deals, but I did buy 3 basic 10/22s on 12/28/2020 because the local WM was selling the last three that they had for $164 each, too good a deal to pass on.

If I found a really good deal on a very light rifle in 6 or 6.5 Creed I would be tempted. My go to Tikka T3 lite 308 weighs 8 lbs scoped and loaded and I don't see looking for a lighter scope. Not many really good deals in rifle world right now so I am pretty safegrin

Wasn't planning on it........ but I've picked up a 700ADL Stainless Laminate in 6.5 and a Charles Daly Zastava rebarreled to .358 so far this year.... thinking the .358 will be my "go to" next year. Only rifle on my radar now is mauser in 9.3x62. Unless I find a good deal on a .340 WBY. Don't need it, but I want it......

Probably just a muzzleloader for me this year. May buy my son a rifle though.

No. Gearing up to learn bullet casting for the current inventory...

I keep telling myself now is not a good time to be buying a gun. And I'm definitely not buying a caliber that I don't already have.

I sent 2 to Pac Nor last month. One is a Howa that's becoming a 6.5-06 and a Ruger 77 II becoming a 280. Both are getting a Douglas #2 contour so they fit in the McMillan's they came out of.

Just sent a Howa off to Pac-Nor that will come back as a 264 Win Mag with a Timney trigger and not decided on a stock yet, heck way things are I may have to put it back in its Hogue stock. Luckily I have brass, dies, primers, powder and bullets.

I refuse to answer the question on the grounds that it tends to incriminate me ! wink

In 2017 I said that I wasn't looking for any more rifles and that I was content! smile

Feb 2018 I bought a T3X SS Lite 7 RM so........ smirk

Nope.

But I do have a Savage action and stock as a donor...

No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

A good .30-06 is a 99% solution.
