Okay, somehow you ended up with $1200 (sold your Yugo, or finally sold your Jennings .25 in the newspaper, or your no good brother-in-law paid you back).

And you want another handgun.

So you go to gunbroker.....

Had to vote Sigma Dan as none of the options really rang my bell. If I had $1200 of totally superfluous money, right now I'd probably spend it on ammo, accessories, and stuff - as I just have to many guns anyway...

I'd get a Springer XD and some ammo, but it wouldn't be from gunjoker

I think I'd track down a good used Kimber, first series or something similar. You can save a little money and buy some other goodies(ammo, powder, primers, bullets, a new holster, etc....)

I like the idea of a real Colt.

I could use a compact so maybe a Kimber compact.

Other then that the next handgun will be a Ruger 357.

Personally, I'd go for the Colt or the Springer, Dan.
