Always been a fan of the Korth and Wilson Combat builds. Have to come into some ‘extra’ money, maybe Joe will send me a check!!
Would also like to mount a.50 cal in the back of the truck, I could get one for free but the drive to Afghanistan would be a problem. :joy::joy:

NEVER. I could buy 2 serviceable firearms for $1500.00, ammo and accessories for $1000.00
and spend the rest on preps for 3 months. :thinking:

It would have to be just to get something “nice”. Functionally, there isn’t much you can’t do with a pistol, rifle, or shotgun that costs less than a grand unless you are asking it to do something very unique or difficult like shoot out past a mile or disable an engine block. So to pay $5k for a firearm it would need to be something rare or very custom. A super custom hand-polished race gun or super custom hand-crafted precision long range rifle or a full auto MP5 :smiley:

Sure a $10 bargain bin watch tells the time just like a $100 Timex or a $10,000 Rolex… but the Rolex is just “nicer”.

What circumstances would allow you to purchase that? The thread does not ask what you would buy.

So what?

Oh well just excuse the fvck out of me!

With $5000 I can buy a few M&P top of the line pistols including Core and Performance Center models. Maybe a few AR15s. I would be like a kid and a candy store.

If I felt like it.
If the M1C of my dreams appeared.
If the 1941 Johnson appeared.
If I ever got back into long range competition and needed a new stick.

Cheers,

At the same time, I could blow 5 grand on one AR pretty easily.

Say an ADM UIC Core 13.9" rifle with a Surefire Socom 556 Mini2, Cloud Defensive Reign, and an ACOG in a QD mount would be pushing $5k for the one solo AR.

I consider any of the ‘stuff’ I’d add to it on a semi-permanent basis when evaluating the “cost” of said firearm, after all

…and forget about it if talking KAC SR15 with an eliteLPVO, talking about a what $6-$7k investment with suppressor and light and mags

That is an easy answer… IF I had the money to buy a gun that is worth 5Gs I would buy it!

If that is the last one and the guy next to me is begging me to sell it for $10,000…or more :wink:
