Default 'bout that time again

I'm getting the new-gun itch....

I've got a 22, 9mm, .38/.357, .40, and .45. I don't know what else to buy now. My rifle selection is slim at a Mossin and a Mossburg 500, but as there are precious few rifle ranges around here, I tend to shy away from rifles.

I just can't come to any sort of decison regarding a new pistol. My budget is more or less limitless, but I tend to balk at prices greater than $500.

Please help me spend this money that is burning a hole in my safe!

And what's your address?

Why limit yourself to one of each caliber? There's a plethora of handguns in every caliber. Enjoy.

The easy answer is an AR-15.

But since you want a pistol, let's hear the specifics of your current roster for evaluation....

You need a .44 Magnum revolver.

Everybody needs a good .44 magnum. Or how about a .45 Colt? I noticed you don't have a 10mm. Got a micro pocket rocket?

What's your .45? Is it a 1911? If not, I suggest exploring the wonderful world of the 1911.

Or

What's your 9mm? Do you have a Hi Power? If not, check out a Hi Power.

Both the 1911 and the Hi Power are John Moses Browning designs. Buy one or the other or both and enter into gun paradise.

I'd say a 10mm or a 1911 in the .460row.

What about about a black powder pistol? That would be a little different.
