Since your not wanting a gun that may or may not be affected by the may or may not gun ban, I would say buy more ammo. It seems to be getting hard to come buy in a lot of places, not so much where I live though.

The 700 SPS is a nice gun that is not too pricy. Toss a coin.

What good is another gun if you don't have ammo for either?

to be honest man, i would stock up on ammo while you can, obama's gonna start raping us on ammo prices very soon, and i heard he might be going a bit further than that, so by all means, stock up brotha.

P.S. This is what I have saved up to far:



.357 Sig- 150 rds.

.45 ACP- 500 rds.

.223- 500

Then an assortment for my other guns.

Think I need more?

Yes, you need more. The Obamites will try to outflank a gun ban and go after the ammo. A new gun ain't worth squat if you don't have anything to put in the chamber.

Beware the man who only has one gun, because he is probably an expert on that one gun.



Stock up on ammo. I fear .223 is going to be banned very soon. I contemplated getting an EBR a year ago, but I got a tactical shotgun instead. I decided that shotgun ammo is probably the last thing they'll ban because of their supposed affinity for "sportsmen," so I shouldn't have any problems finding ammo for it. It ain't as sexy as an EBR, but ammo won't be a problem, either.



Put the money you would have spent on a new gun into .223 ammo, then pray to God that my hunch is wrong!

+1 on that. That's been my plan.
