Hey USN!
Good thread!
My wishlist would include a new PSE compound bow(not sure which one)
A T/C pro hunter .50 caliber muzzleloader topped with a 1.5-5x32 hawken hunter scope.
For a deer rifle, I would have a Browning A-bolt medallion in 7mm-08 topped with a bushnell 3200 elite 3-9x40
For turkey, it would be a benelli superblack eagle II with steadygrip in realtree AP with burris speed dot scope in 12 ga.

You can't kill'em sittin' on the couch!

Even though I've had the same bow since I was 10 or 11 (31 now), and really do love it, I'd like to get a new bow.  I'm not sure what kind yet.  I used to love bowtech's, so would possibly look at them first.
Also, I want to get a TC ProHunter.  Hopefully this year or next!!!!

My wish list is kinda simple but probably nothing different that other people's list.  I'd like to own stable of many of the popular calibers and a gun that represents a good example of that caliber.  Here's a few pistol examples:

SW Model 29 44 mag
Colt Python 357 mag
Beretta 9mm
1911 (by nearly any manf) 45 acp

For rifles, I'd like to have a nice representation of military guns.  I'd also, as with the pistols, would like to have a good representation of some popular calibers and platforms.

M1 Garand
Lever-action 30-30
A nice bolt action 30-06

I'm pretty set with shotguns but I do really want a good o/u for skeet and sporting clays.  I use one of my pumps at the moment.

I've not been acquiring all that many the past few years, except for the kids. 

I'm still on the prowl for #3 son's first adult deer rifle.  He's got 5 years for it yet, but I'd like to find him a 30-06  Win 670.  I've got one, #2 got one.  This is the old K-Mart version of the Winchester Model 70.  He's either going to end up with one of those Remington Model 760's in 30-06.

I'd also like to find a worn out  Thompson Center  sidelock that someone wants to part with on the cheap.  If it has a good lock and revivable stock and furniture, I'll throw a Green Mountain Barrel on it and give it to one of the kids.  Right now Moose is happy with his Mossberg ML barrel on his 500.  Angus can still wait a few years.  I'm looking though.

For me?  The list is either very short or very long.  The few that are on my bucket list are:

In smokepoles:

1)  A full-stock flinter of the type carried into the Kentuck by Boone, Kenton, and KYHillChick's kin.  I want a nice one.  At some point I want to go back to patched round ball for deer

2)  A Brown Bess.  I just love 'em

3)  A .58 Zouave muskatoon-- The epitomy of the front-stuffer military rifle.  Pendersoli makes a nice repro.


For my dotage as a deer hunter, I think I want a Ruger International in something like 6.5X55 Swede, or 7X57 Mauser or some such thing.  I dig mannlicher-type full stocks, but I know it's not a good idea for medium .30 cals I like so much now.  When I finally find that rifle,  I'll burrow in on that cartridge, whatever it is and  keep loading for it until I can't pull the handle any more, and then I'll know it's probably time to hang it up for good.  I just hope I have a good supply loaded before that happens.  I'm still a long way from even starting to look for the rifle, but this is the one I want them to pull out of my cold dead hands when they find me in my tree stand.

A nice pre-64 Win Model 70 in 30-06-- nothing too fancy. I'd like to resurrect an old action with a barrel and nice wood.  I'm not a collector.  As long as it feels good and shoots well, I'd be happy.

After the kids are done with the Marlin 336 in 30-30, I think I want to have it rechambered for 307 Winchester.  Nonneman does a good job on this, so I hear.  I also want to acquire a 35 Rem and send it off to him to make a 356 Win out of it.  After that, I may be done acquiring lever actions

. . . except for a 45-70-- maybe.  I'm still thinking on this.  I'd like to explore the 44-45 calibers.  I just haven't figure out how I want to do it yet.  There's really no reason for it.  I just think they're cool.  They open up to a bunch of possibilities--  cast bullets,  paper patched bullets, black powder centerfire.  It just sounds like fun.  I still haven't made up my mind on the action either.  It may be a bolt gun, or a lever or a single shot. 

There. That's the list. 

. . . did I mention the Savage 99 in .358 WIN?
