Midway has or had a sale on Rainier plated. I picked up 1k 9mm 124HP for a little under $100. I have been slowly prepping cases. I loaded about 700 rounds of 38spl with Berry's a couple of weeks ago. Berry says 1000 fps while Rainier says 1500 fps. Still call for lead loading data.
If you go the 357 route consider getting a 357 rifle at some point. 400 to 500 fps gain. The 9mm will only get 150-200 fps.

You have plenty of ammo and extra mags why not get another glock?

How many guns can you shoot at once?

You only really must have one handgun, and you must be proficient with it (otherwise, you're a danger to yourself and others).

Needs vs wants needs vs wants needs vs wants...

Which is more important to you? You want one that you're proficient with? I see you've already owned a Ruger revolver in the past, so I would hope you're proficient with one already. But what about maintaining that proficiency? .357 mag ammo is way more pricey than 9mm, and you'd be shooting twice as much if you have two... You can save by shooting .38 through them, but you'll still be wanting to shoot both...

I would say stick with what you have, maintain your proficiency, and just save up for the other one's later if you desire.
LOL...."You'd be shooting twice as much if you have two" I do that behind my barn sometimes, but dont try it at the range..

I picked up 1K of Berry's plated 100gr Hollow Base Round Nose for $77 shipped. Berry's has a lot better price then MidWay and X-Treme sometimes has a better price then Berry's depending on how many you want to order.
I still have around 250 of the 100gr HBRN's left and around 400 primers. Just need to get another Lb of Unique and pick up some brass at the local shooting spot and I'll be set to load up a few boxes.
I'd like something either smaller(Ruger LC9) or a 22lr/22Mag/22 Hornet long gun or maybe a Pump 20ga shotgun. I'm not going to be in any hurry. I'll keep an eye on the local guns for sale site until I find something that'll be useful and in my price range.

Sounds like you should keep the Glock set up you have for SD/HD, but i understand the desire for a revolver. I have "a few".. of them. They are beautiful, almost mechanical works of art. They stay in the family for generations. I kind of view auto pistols as throwaways. I have them, they are best for concealed carry, and putting a lot of lead downrange in a hurry. But, imo not as much fun to shoot as a revolver.
