    Obligatory post ... i'm indecisive as usual...just looking to see some differing ideas from like-minded friends.

    If you had a $700.00 budget - what would you buy in a handgun?

    I already have the following:

    Glock 19
    Glock G22
    Glock 26
    DE1911G .45
    S&W Model 5906 9mm
    Springfield XDs 9mm

    I'm not looking for "advice" necessarily - just "What would you do" if someone gave you $700.00 and you could buy a new handgun.

    I'm waiting on Ruger to intro the SR45c! I don't know for sure if they'll ever offer it, but the track record of there SR series points to the odds being good. MSRP should be $500 or so, then $200 worth of ammo.

    I'd save a few hundred more and get the CZ 75 Shadow Long Slide in .40 S&W.

    Depends on what kind if shooting I wanted to do.

    Probably a S&W revolver with a 4-5 inch barrel in either .357 or .44 mag.

    A nice wheel gun would compliment your collection.

    I'd get a Bersa UC Pro 45acp AND a Bersa Thunder 380...that will spend your $700 and you'll have two great guns.

    I'd get either a Smith and Wesson 686 357, a CZ-75b in 9mm, or a Smith and Wesson 617 22 revolver. If you wish to waste your money, then get another of the same ol, same ol! ;)

    Ruger GP100 and a couple boxes of ammo. Or a S&W 686 with no ammo. Maybe a Ruger Blackhawk in .44mag.

    I'd add a S&W Model 686 (.357 mag) with a 4 inch barrel to your collection. One of the guns everyone should have.

    i too think a nice revolver in 357 or 44 would be nice to add into the mix of pistols you have.

    I have to agree...based on you're collection..I would add a revolver. For me, I would buy a shield in .40 and ammo with the change.

    +1 On the wheelgun. For me it would be a nice S&W model 627 or 327. Used, either way. Prolly a 4" or shorter barrel.
