Default I've got the itch!!!

You all know the one I'm talking about. I've got some cash burning a hole in my pocket and not totally sure what I want. I definately want another pistol/revolver. Not interested in another long gun. Here is my current lineup. What should I be looking for?

Glock 17, XDM9 5.25" (USPSA guns)
Colt Gold Cup 1911.45
Colt/Umarex 1911 .22
XDS .45, S&W 642 (CC guns)
S&W 28-2 4" .357
Ruger GP100 4" .357
Browning Buckmark 5.5" .22
Taurus 44 8 3/8" .44 mag
Taurus 94 4" .22

I was thinking of a Ruger Mark III Hunter for steel challenge/bowling pin but my Browning fills that nicely.

Top of the mark budget would be $900. That would tap me out for gun funds for atleast a month. I really feel like if I don't put some thought into this I will walk into a gun shop and make a total impulse buy. Those don't generally turn out well for me. Usually a traded/sold gun down the road.

Or a Sig P226

Or maybe the godfather of high caps, a Browning Hi Power.

I would like to add a Ruger rim fire revolver, but only if it has both 22 & 22m cylinders. YMMV

I see that eatmydust has an addiction to the .22WMR round. If I went with a Ruger rimfire it would need the two cylinders. .22WMR around me has been non-existent. Or maybe a GP100 with a 6" barrel. Or a Blackhawk with a longer barrel.

I've seen the PMR-30 a couple times. Usually in the mid-$700 range.

I haven't really looked at the CZ lineup. I have been eyeing a couple Tanfoglios lately. Problem is they are .45 and they would primarily be a range toy. Mags might be a problem also.

I have the single six. I only use the magnum cylinder.
