Here is my collection in all of its glory. I want to finish customizing my GI and put some different sights on the rest of the handguns.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 6:07:48 PM EDT
nice collection
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 6:19:28 PM EDT
I would say Glock, but instead i'll say Hi Power.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 6:20:33 PM EDT
Hi Power
Pre-B 75
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 6:24:07 PM EDT
Get a G17 and learn to love the polymer (it took me a while to convert over, too, but danged glad I did! ).

If you can't do that, get a S&W N-frame.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 7:19:06 PM EDT
That's a pretty well rounded collection.  Probably what I would get if I had the money.

Out of the list I'd get a .45 ACP revolver.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 7:34:52 PM EDT
I was thinking that I'd get a .45acp revolver but I am not sure on which one. I was thinking that the M22 Thunder Ranch is pure sex. If I had my choice I would get rid of my Ruger 22/45 and buy a MkII or MkIII.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 7:35:02 PM EDT
You need more! I recommend at least 2-3 different guns in the same caliber minimum.  
Oh and if you already haven't done it, put a Wolff spring kit in the GP 100. It makes a world of difference.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 7:51:42 PM EDT
I'm definitely trying to keep to the more readily available calibers. I wouldn't mind having another 1911. Maybe a Colt or a 9mm Springfield.

Remember, Quantity has a quality all of it's own.

Get rid of the MK III 22/45 and find a MK II version.

Other than that, get either a M625 or the M22. Full moon clips rock.

Do you only have revolvers or is that just a third of your handgun collection? I definitely need to buy a revolver that has a better trigger than my two Rugers.

That's just my revolvers. I own a few pistols. A Glock 17, Sig P226 and four 1911 style .45 autos and a CZ-52 and two Makarovs. I don't have a picture of them though.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:28:24 PM EDT
Thanks for sharing.  I would go for a Sig.  A very nice compliment to your collection.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:30:36 PM EDT
I really want an X-Five but I can't dish out that kind of green.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 10:02:17 PM EDT
If you want to try, get a Glock 19.  If not, a Sig Sauer is nice (P220).
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 2:21:34 AM EDT
you have a nice collection.

I'd go with a big bore revolver.

either SA or DA.

that's just me,tho.

Browning High Power.  No question.

Go to Wolff springs and buy two hammer springs for that GP100 and the SP101. It is very easy to replace the hammer springs (reduced #). I did that with my GP100 and the trigger is as good as my S&W Model 19. If you take the grips off of the GP, you will find a pin in an inset of you grips. That is to be used to help remove the hammer spring.
Do it! You"ll see what I mean.

CZ SP01 or P01
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 6:25:30 AM EDT
Single shot a la T/C.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 6:30:27 AM EDT
good grief, you need a cowboy gun, whats sitting next to you when you watch westerns?
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 6:50:26 AM EDT
Yeah, based on what you have, I have to say Glock 17 as well.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 6:58:18 AM EDT
I know you said you don't like polymer but you need a Glock. If you can't do that a M&P, USP or Walther P99 would be fine too. Another good choice would be a small CCW pistol like a Kahr K9.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 7:38:01 AM EDT
Ever shoot a P7M8?  You can get a P7 PSP for a killer price these days from CDNN.  Seriously, the coolest 9mm money can buy.  Though the hipower is awesome as well.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:14:14 AM EDT
I know everybody is recommending a Glocks and XDs but I have had both and can't get used to either. If I was to go back to poly I would probably pick up an H&K P30 or 45. The USP felt like a brick in my hands. Like I previously stated I want another 1911 but in a compact size. The Colt New Agent looks sexy as does the Kimber SIS Ultra.

I'd stay away from 3" 1911s, especially Kimbers (and I am a Kimber owner). Look for an Officer's frame with a Commander length slide. STI, Kimber, Wilson Combat, Nighthawk and others make this setup.

One vote for Sig Elite...great gun!
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 7:51:01 PM EDT
Three inch S&W M36.  Old school blued model.

or

Colt Combat Commander
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 8:12:56 PM EDT
Colt SAA copy (or original if you have the coin).
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:46:06 PM EDT
You have a nice "family".  

I think a BHP would feel right at home among them!
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 11:25:42 PM EDT
You need a Sig P226.
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 4:35:17 AM EDT
Nothing is more fun than a wheel gun with moon clips.  Either a 625 or a 610 in 10mm.

I have both and love them.  610 can shoot 40 SW or 10mm.  

Link Posted: 6/4/2008 5:09:02 AM EDT
Who makes the Colt SAA replicas? I wouldn't mind a SA revolver. I have also considered a Hi-Power as well. At least they're both metal.

The Kimber Compact Stainless is nice as are the others of the same size. Or a Colt CCO if you can find one.
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 7:46:56 AM EDT
Everyone needs a Glock in the collection (even if it's not your favorite).

Sig 228 would be a great addition (my favorite Sig). Not a fan of the elite.

Springfield EMP. Small 1911 with cheap 9mm ammo.

HK P7M8. It's a classic.

Link Posted: 6/4/2008 9:38:13 AM EDT
For your consideration:

Browning Hi-Power
HK P7
Springfield EMP

Any of those would fit into your current metal motif quite well.  I personally like the idea of the Hi Power.

I'm a Glock fan, but I can respect that they don't appeal to everyone.  I can't find a place in my heart for the XD's... no matter how much I try them and people rave about them.
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 4:14:20 PM EDT
I like the emp. Also the sigs are good(I like myp229). Or one of those sig pro polymer thingys might be cool.( I know you don't want polymer, but they are cool)
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 4:37:06 PM EDT
Whats the trigger like on the Hi-Power and HK P7? Its my understanding that they are both SA which is my personal favorite.
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 5:11:52 PM EDT
A Glock G-19 or a Ruger Single Six.............
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 6:19:33 PM EDT
Don't care if you don't like polymer, the G19 is a gun worth having.
