Two guns I am looking at are the Walther PPQ and the CZ PO7 Duty. Both in 9MM. Reports are fantastic on both of these, so these are on my list.
Just a couple of the many many options.

Be Prepared.

Considering the consequences is never wasted time.

You need a 1911.

i second this! check out the American Classic II in 45acp. really underestimated pistols. lots of people think because they are made in the Philipine Islands they must not be quality guns. nothing could be further from the truth. i have one and it's accurate and well made, functions with everything i have ever put through it. the only bad thing i can say about it is this, the magazines couldd be much better IMO, but we all know we are going to buy more magazines anyway, so that's not that big a problem. the price on them is decent too. just my suggestion.

I evaluated my gun inventory and decided that I need a .45 ACP, so I ordered the Ruger .45 ACP double-action with an adjustible rear sight.

When I got my .44 mag revolver a few years back, I was debating between it and the .45 ACP. I have since decided that I need them both, that there are things one can do which the other cannot do.

All excellent suggestions here. I cannot disagree that I need and want to add a 1911 to the mix. However, after range time yesterday with 5 different calibers, I am thinking hard on a full size 9mm to really improve my accuracy. I am fairly accurate with the guns I own but really want a full size. I like that CZ that was mentioned and the beretta m9. Ahh decisions

Look at the XD(M) 9mm. They make 4.5" and 5.25" versions.

Browning Hi-Power comes to mind as well.

Its a shame you had issues with your PT1911. I've had mine for 2 years with maybe a 1000 rounds through it and it goes bang every time.


I agree with some of the others, you need a 1911

You can't go wrong with a gun that has John Moses Browning genes.

If you want a 9 mike mike, there is no better than "The King of Nines", the Browning Hi-Power (aka; P-35, HP for "Hi-Power" or "High-Power", GP for the French term, "Grande Puissance", BAP for Browning Automatic Pistol).
