Most likely, something in the CZ family.

I'm with you!! I want to get my hands on a Mak but can't find one. I'll just wait till the buy-off slows down I guess. I'm sure they'll turn up eventually.

I would buy the new Glock 30S. Excellent reviews. Then with the $150 left over I would buy some ammo.

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.
Looks like you need a revolver. Something in the Ruger .357 magnum lineup would help round out your collection. Even cheaper would be a used S&W K frame, preferably a Mod 19 S&W. No collection is complete without one of them.

Ruger Alaskan in .44 magnum. Why you ask? Why not! Sorry, saw one Friday in a LGS and can't get it out of my mind...buy it, buy it.

Very good idea.

Even better idea. I like my GP 100. It will outlive me and my grandkids and it is my "go to" gun for home defense. Everyone should have at least one revolver. Nothing purdier than a revolver.

Ain't that the truth? My Ruger Mark II is an INCREDIBLE shooter. It doesn't come any more fun than that!!

You've got all auto's.
Another auto doesn't do much for you. You've already basically got whatever it would be you would buy as another auto.
But a revolver opens up a different type shooting - and if 357/38 Special - different cartridges - interchangeability - versatility.
There are many good ones out there. Smiths and Colts are classics; Rugers are very well made. A Ruger SP101 or an Sp100 are excellent guns that both can be had in 357. You can even find a 357 with a 9mm interchangeable cylinder. Now there is some versatility!

But another thing I don't see on your list of present guns is a small concealable - like maybe a 380. I know, I know - chit chat, chit chat - not enough power, not enough power. Just don't stand in front of one! The small ones make extremely versatile conceal guns, if you are into concealed carry - and legal.

Myself - I have a similar collection - auto's, larger and smaller calibers, revolvers - and I do favor revolvers for their reliability under stress. But, much as I prefer the revolvers or even a small 9mm, my Ruger 380 is the almost always go to gun for concealment -- for me. It just works - and the others ... I choose not to take - because I don't feel like hassling with the size, and holsters, and inside/outside waistband - driving discomfort - bending ... on and on...

The little LCP goes in my back pock in a leather backpocket holster - in virtually any clothes - dress slacks for fancy affairs, jeans, work clothes, bicycling, ... It's always there.

To shoot it - it packs a wallop - no joke. After all, it is light. And, it is not a pleasant range gun to pass some pleasant time with. But that is not what it was designed for - people seem to confuse that fact - it is a personal protection gun that you can conceal easily - that is it's purpose - not pleasant shooting. If you want a pleasant gun for the range get a large something - heavy - in a 9mm - very pleasant. If you want to be brave go to a long barrel 44 mag - but be prepared. The 40 cal's are a little snappy so get a heavier one, ... for pleasant range fun.

But that's not what the LCP is designed for, or about - fun at the range. I have certainly learned that. It is designed so that you are armed.
It has never misfired. And it is always with me. And that makes a big difference.
