Now you and I both know you’re not going to make this decision based on a poll. You’ve had plenty of input from those in the know" so it’s time to just make your own decision.
It’s you that will enjoy or regret it (not likely the latter with any of these choices) not us.
Just go do it and we’ll all tell you you screwed up. (Kidding of course.)
I think some of you are taking this too serious and looking at it from a SHTF perspective. I already have my functional tools. This is the ancillary fun stuff that could serve a purpose. Don’t take it so serious. Let’s have some fun with this.
I apologize I don’t always realize that I come of that way
I do sometimes though that’s just the way I approach almost anything it’s honestly just because I’ve been making firearm purchases that way for a long time
I like practical but also the fun stuff. Why else would I have two Mosins? Who the hell needs two Mosins (still not enough for me, want more)? Collectors and hobbyists that’s who. Firearms are both life and liberty gear but also my hobby. I got out of classic cars and video games to get in to shooting and such. While these would see mostly range duty they all do have a practical purpose and could just as easily be a life / family saver.
You’re right. I have this problem of not being able to decide–it sucks and I hate it. I was hoping to see what others would do if they had those choices to find out if anything sticks out but it appears that this topic is really useless as you are likely correct. It does appear most prefer the PS90 in the poll which is interesting. I really wasn’t expecting that to be the front runner.
Getting down to brass tacks I guess for me it comes down to, a) do I want to make the investment for one or both VEPRs knowing they may be quite valuable down the road (esp the 12ga, no one will want the 6.5 )? Or b) do I choose the PS90 knowing it’ll get used more and prove to be a more effective self / home defense weapon but will likely be worth less down the road if I wanted to sell/trade it. The 1911 is just an add-on, don’t need it–that is purely 100% a want item plain and simple as I would never EDC it. I’d rather carry my Star BM (duh) or even the Makarov.
It is funny, I am NOT this wishy washy in real life. In fact I help OTHERS make decisions, I only get this way with money to burn. Pure and simple. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to stare at the computer screen some more and figure this shit out as I’m likely going to buy what I’m going to buy tomorrow. I just hope I don’t watch any more of MAC, Sootch or IV8888’s videos and find something else I want. I did that last night…damn PPS-43C.
Since, like most of us, you already have plenty of stuff, spend your dough on experiences.
Experiences and the memories will outlast any thing else you can reward yourself with.
If it’s to be with guns, then more and better training would be a good choice.
If you (erroneously) assume you have had enough of that, then a new experience might be the thing.
How about a week learning something completely new?
It doesn’t have to be the same thing for both of you.
Just a thought.
