I've been on the Paladin Lance and Steel GunLance ones for some time now and still haven't got the materials for significant upgrades. What's the next "level up" for me with regards these two?

I'm a gunlance user and I am loving it. I am just finishing up the 3 star old lady quests.
I went down the bone path because it was easy to get the materials. I am currently using the Hellsting and full Hi-Metal armor. I also added a couple of gems to boost my gunnery skill to Gunnery King. This makes Wyvern's fire and the regular shots stronger. Note that Gunnery master does NOTHING for gunlance, you must upgrade all the way up to king.
Even though I don't have any guard skills, the shield is still very strong. I block all the time. When I see an opening, I use the charge attack. And if I have time, I try to get in a couple of combos, but don't get too greedy! And don't forget to use Wyvern's fire. It only takes a few blasts to take a big monster down.
