I've cleaned house and got rid of alot of junk on fleabay and craigslist. I have about $1000 saved up. I was planning on spending it on an MP15 or entry level Bushy or RRA.

I already have a full size MP9 and I am getting more concerned about 9mm ammo getting scarce and the posiblity of it getting taxed heavily in the near future which got me thinking instead of of the black rifle spending $1000 on an MP9c(I am getting CCW), a reminton 870, and using the rest to stock up on ammo(should be enough for a case of 9FMJ).

I figure the price on 9mm ammo is only going to go up. I should be able to get shotgun ammo in the future with hopefully no problem since its for "sporting" purposes, and I can use the compact 9 for ccw.

I'd really like to have an AR but that blows all my money and I'd be worried I'd have 2 nice guns and no ammo. Really like to hear some of your oppinions on which way I should go.

Thanks.

I haven't shopped lately, but I wouldn't think you're going to find an M&P15A for $1000. IMHO, I would try and pick up a lightly used Remington 870P and 10-20 magazines for your M&P9. After that, buy all the 9mm jacketed hollow point you can afford. Use DocGKR's list to pick your ammo! AFAIK, those are the items within your reach that would most likely be affected by the dufus dems...

Sad, but true, if the prices on GunBroker.com are any guide. You might be able to find one at a dealer somewhere who hasn't jacked the price up, if you are lucky.



In April of 08, I bought a 15A for $875 and then got a $100 rebate from S&W, My, how times have changed!

Yeah I figuered if I could even find one local $1000 might not even cover it at this point.



Last week I put in an order with G&R for some 17 round mags and some Ranger T's. Haven't heard back from them yet if they shipped or not, I am assuming they are very busy right now.



I am really leaning towards the Remington a compact 9 and stocking up on what I need for those.



Thanks guys.

Yeah, I never buy a firearm without already having or being able to get a minimum of 1,000 rounds. Most neglect the need for ammo.

A far, far better combat pump shotgun is the Browning BPS Defense. It has an extended 8 shot magazine, with a 3" chamber. CDNN Sports bought the remaining inventory, and is selling them currently for only $379. If you have never handled a BPS, they are a real treat. Far smoother action than a 870. Much superior workmanship, fit and finish, and quality of materials.



If you don't care about a high capacity magazine tube, CDNN also has an incredible deal on the Mitchell Sabre shotgun. I is a very slick semi-auto gas operated shotgun with chromed action, chamber, and barrel for easy maintenance. For only $279, you get a soft shooting 3" mag 12 gauge, with both 28" sporting barrel and a 22" combat barrel. It has 4+1 shell capacity. And it even comes with an amazing 7 different choke tubes, so you can fully adjust the choke on the shotgun. It is also available from CDNN Sports.



Just go to their website:



http://www.cdnninvestments.com/



And download their latest catalog. They often have incredible deals.



The ammo situation could hardly be more bleak right now. Everyone seems to be panicking. Even 12 gauge Buckshot is now becoming hard to find.

I was looking at shotguns on Monday but the stores didn't have what I wanted. I did however pickup an MP9c . The guy behind the counter was unboxing an MP15 right while I was paying for the 9 but I didn't bust out the credit card and I'll keep looking for a shot gun.

You're on the right track. The shotgun is the best for home defense because it delivers a ton of firepower and reduces the chances of penetrating walls and injuring neighbors, but it can be a bear in tight quarters.



I started with an 18" Mossberg Persuader (of course, the 870 is also a great choice), mounted a Knoxx SpecOps stock, X300 light and LaserMax, we're very pleased with the result. It's now 36" long, lighter than my M&P15a, considerably more powerful and arguably easier to maneuver.



Liked it so much we did the same thing with a Maverick Model 88 (by Mossberg) and find I prefer the safety location on the 88.

Thanks KRW. I am looking at either a Mossberg 500 persuader or an Remmy 870 defender. I am going to get a 20ga so my wife is comfortable using it also.



Coltman I took care of that before I bought another weapon so we are on the same page
