    Taking a little bit of liberty with the term, what, if any, are the next handguns on your hitlist?

    For me, and in no specific or particular order, they are:

    - Ruger SR9C
    - Rock Island or Metro Arms 1911 matte nickel
    - Sig Sauer P238 HD
    - Hi-Point JHP .45
    - Marlin 336C

    I'm sure some will drop and others might take their place as time passes while I wait for the funds, but I have a feeling that these will be mine by 2013.

    On my shortest list would be a 9mm 1911. Don't know if I will have the patience or $ to track one down before something on the not quite as short list pops up.

    Those would include: 9mm Semi Auto from either S&W, Stoeger or SA or a
    .357/38 4"-6" revolver.

    A Colt 1911, preferably this newest one they're coming out with.

    I looked seriously at getting the GSG 1911 22lr but just couldn't bring myself to go the 22 cal route. I've gone back and forth on the idea a hundred times, but always wind back up at willing to pay extra for more rounds for the calibers I already have instead. But this is an excellent choice for the short list. They all are!

    Pretty sure RIA and Metro both do the 1911 in 9mm. As do plenty others. I too am anxiously awaiting the freed up funds for a 1911, but in .45acp

    I am looking for a 1911 in 9mm as I don't want to get too many calibers. Also, .45 is a little too expensive for to go shooting with. I am in the middle of building an AR-15. I would also like to get a rifle of some kind in .308 to be able to try some 1000+ yard shots.

    I have major respect for those of you piecing together their own weapons from parts. That would really make me love a gun, having such a personal connection to it. Very cool!

    The lower reciever I purchased is known as a 20% blank. The mag well and the top surface are the only machined surfaces. I have to finish the rest of it, trigger well, buffer tube threads and all the holes for various things. It should be a nice gun when I get finished.
