I may be picking up a Springfield range officer operator tomorrow.

I have a PT38s Taurus. It's a handful. If you reload you can dial it back a bit but expect it to be somewhere between a 38+p and a .357.
But it's a great gun. Very nice SA/DA trigger. Just hold on to it.

Kahr K 40 or MK 40 and perhaps a lever action in .44 mag as a companion to my .44 Redhawk, just on my bucket list so far.

Sounds like a updated version of the .256 Winchester Mag.
According to data from the fifth edition of the Hornady Handbook of Cartridge Reloading handloaders with a .256 rifle can approximately duplicate the Winchester factory load using the Hornady 60 grain Flat Point bullet in front of 15.5 grains of H4227 powder for a MV of 2700 fps. The trajectory of that load looks like this: +2.3 inches at 50 yards, +4.4 inches at 100 yards, 0 at 200 yards, and -26.2 inches at 300 yards.

I am undecided yet again. Maybe a TP9SF Elite but I have several compact 9s. Maybe a Glock 20. Not much room left in the gun safe for long guns so maybe it is time to buy another safe instead of a gun.

good plan. that's what I did, then of course you have to fill the empty slots in that new safe.
