Default If it were your $$, what would you buy?

Obligatory post ... i'm indecisive as usual...just looking to see some differing ideas from like-minded friends.

If you had a $700.00 budget - what would you buy in a handgun?

I already have the following:

Glock 19
Glock G22
Glock 26
DE1911G .45
S&W Model 5906 9mm
Springfield XDs 9mm

I'm not looking for "advice" necessarily - just "What would you do" if someone gave you $700.00 and you could buy a new handgun.

I'm waiting on Ruger to intro the SR45c! I don't know for sure if they'll ever offer it, but the track record of there SR series points to the odds being good. MSRP should be $500 or so, then $200 worth of ammo.

Beretta 9mm Px4 Storm Compact, ammo with the difference.

I'd save a few hundred more and get the CZ 75 Shadow Long Slide in .40 S&W.

Depends on what kind if shooting I wanted to do.

Probably a S&W revolver with a 4-5 inch barrel in either .357 or .44 mag.

A nice wheel gun would compliment your collection.

I'd get a Bersa UC Pro 45acp AND a Bersa Thunder 380...that will spend your $700 and you'll have two great guns.
