    Before I suggest something (1911), what do you plan to use to carry it with? (1911 holster)

    Can't decide whether to get a home defense/hunting shotgun or a new pistol. I have a g26 and a g17 and an AR15. Looking to enhance/expand my horizens.

    I see you have the g series. To expand your horizons, move up to the M1911A1 series.

    Like these, for example.

    You got your pistols and rifle covered. Get a shotgun.

    Or get a good 22 pistol.

    I would add a shotgun for sure! Mossberg 500 in various styles for $400 and under. This way you got the rest of the cash for AMMO!!

    As much as I think you should expand your horizon past Glock (I am not a Glock hater, but I do feel every collection should have at least a 1911 or ten) I think a .22 is in order. They make sense for many reasons. They are cheap to shoot. You can practice often and the basics are the same, you will be a better shooter, and they are just fun. Then get a 12 ga, and then a 1911 (or ten).

    Not sold on 1911, great gun just doesnt tickle my fancy. Shotgun it is, remington 870 sounds nice.

    Just went to armorers school for it, Remington gives me a one time 46% discount, the choice is simple, remington express tactical.

    Lol, no, lots of good 1911 out there for under $600. Springfield Mil-Spec, for instance (I'm a Springer fan).
