    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...

    just had it happen... kinda. I went with Kimber. if I fell in to any more money, Id have to side with lots of ammo, and a ccw holster.

    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.

    Not on the list but I would probably scrape up a bit more and buy an STI RangeMaster.
    Barring that I would look at another Colt to go with my Gold Cup.

    I would do one of two things. Either go with a Springer loaded, and use the rest of the money for ammo, mags, etc. Or save up just a bit more, and get a Springer TRP. Just my opinion.

    I had to go Sigma.:D But with that kind of cheese, you could step up to the new SD.:cool:

    For $1600, I may consider selling you "The Worlds Greatest Sigma"™.


    P.S.
    I will throw in a box of ammo.

    New Colt or Springer...any of the other choices just would not work for me. Then between those two I'll look for the best deal.

    Perhaps consider either a Remington R1 or maybe a new SA Range Officer and some ammunition and magazines.

    Thats what I did when I bought my series 1 Kimber SIS. $800 and the finish wasn't even worn off inside the slide rails.
    10,000 rounds and 15 months later and still no problems whatsoever.

    Damn. I don't think I can answer this tonight. I need to think. I must kneel before the Altar of Browning and seek the Wisdom of the Master.

    $1200?

    Free and clear?

    1911!

    Not a Nighthawk?

    Hmmm......:confused:

    After much reflection and tossing of the bones there is only one true and honest answer ..... put it in the bank until you have enough to buy a Nighthawk.

    I'm happy with my Kimber compact. Hasn't coughed yet. Plus the Lovely Mrs Freefall bought it for me.:p
