unique gun suggestions

Post by nrv216 » 27 Jan 2014, 10:56

Hey guys,

I just made a little dough selling some stock I forgot I had. I am looking to buy a unique weapon. Practicality be damned! I was looking at a ps90 but don't find that to be too unique (especially around here) so now I am looking at a .50 Beowulf or a ksg. Pistol, rifle or shotgun; it just has to catch my interest and be close in price to those mentioned above.

So, lets hear some suggestions! Thanks guys and gals!

KSG
RFB
Tavor

Then there's always NFA items such as a suppressor, SBR or SBS. There's the additional $200 tax stamp, oh and that pesky 8 month wait...

Money definitely is an issue.

Dang jgreenburg, I didn't know you were such a bullpup fiend! I thought about the rfb but I recently bought a ptr-91 perimeter rifle. The Tavor is tempting but a bit more than I wanted to spend. I'm still leaning toward Beowulf at this point.

Ditch,

You own a Beowulf? How do you like it?

Yes, I definitely got the bullpup bug as of late. If you want "unique", here are a couple of guns I considered. First a rifle, it's the Taurus Circuit Judge. Not very practical, but kinda cool. A video I found:



Now here's a pistol that is definitely on my to-own list, the Uberti Schofield as presented by Mr. Hickok45:

My list would be Grendel, Beowulf, KSG

Not sure if Grendel is unique enough for you

UTS-15
Kriss / Vector

or if practicality is being damned anyway, there is always the AF2011-A1 (Double barrel 1911)

I actually looked at the Grendel. Very cool cartridge but I feel like it only offers a little advantage over the .308 rifle I have.

I would go ksg over Utas personally. Vector is interesting for sure but I am soured on the whole smg clone thing because of my inability to find/afford a decent mp5 clone.

That's a helluva gun :laugh:
Seen it before but haven't seen anything about the range of that thing, I wouldn't think it would be that far though :skep: Anyone know?

Thinking of getting a thumper...
I already have a Grendel, seems only fitting that I get a Beowulf :D The thing is, I can't really 'justify' it other than I just want it. It's good for hogs ( which we don't really have in ID), and I don't want to destroy the exiting side for any kill I plan to keep (my '06 can already do a bang up job of that). The 'wulf's also good for engine blocks but I don't have a need to kill those either (unfortunately).

Considered the .458 SOCOM - I like that you can use standard AR mags & the ballistics on it are better but with bullets this big and ranges within 200 yards, the differences aren't that substantial.
Ammo cost & availability is a factor.

All I need is one good reason.... ;)
