in view of potentially tighter restrictions/bans following next year's election, I began thinking about what I should pick up while it's still available. I'm probably going to budget these acquisitions at $1000 or less, and the goal is not necessarily to get collectors items, but, rather, serviceable arms, the more the better. My first choice is probably an AK of some sort, and even though it probably is not as likely to be banned, a Mosin. Probably a 995 or larger HP carbine, even though I don't think it likely that these would disappear -- they're just too good to go without I already have five pistols, from .22 to .40 and no long guns, so I'd put less emphasis on pistols, but would not rule them out. What do you suggest? Are the ones that I've mentioned the right place to start? And, even if they are, there's still several hundred left over for others. Finally, if anyone has some good ideas on smaller or larger budgets and the guns that fit them, please dive in.
