    I think I'm done buying pistols for a while...

    How can that be, you might ask?

    I've got a stainless colt 1991A1 for my .45, sig 229 for my .40, walther PPS for my 9mm, and a ruger LCP for my .380 when nothing else will fit.

    I really like shooting each one and i like to think I've got a pretty good example of each popular usable caliber.

    My EDC tends towards my new walther and LCP when discretion is of utmost importance. I also carry my 229 when I can, but it, and my colt, are nightstand pistols.

    Am I missing something? I mean for pistols? I might go with a shotgun, perhaps the new kel-tec bull pup, for SHTF home defense, but that's a different story....

    Otherwise, any ideas for pistols?

    Yeah, two small holes, no revolver and no .22lr. Now the good news is you can kill two birds with one stone!

    I'd also change out the Walther 9 mm for an XD, or own both.

    I'm through too, until next time the bug bites .

    Personally, I think you aren't complete until you add a Glock--I'm thinking a G30.

    I've said that before, but then I see something new I want and create a reason that it should be in my collection.

    But a .22 and a revolver (if you want an all around revolver, I'd get a 4 inch .357) are some things that would better round out your collection.

    All kinds of revolvers are fun to shoot and .22s are fundamental. Folks with no .22 pistols simply don't know what they are missing.

    A Ruger Single Six with two cyclinders, and a Ruger SP101...then you'd be done...for a couple of weeks, anyway.

    There is no such thing as being done. Just like there is no such thing for a woman as enough shoes and purses! There is always something new hitting the market. Just face the facts, once you get started down the road to gun ownership, it's a never ending journey.

    I don't see a Glock listed. No collection complete without a Glock..... or a Snub. Can you say LCR? or SP101?

    Honestly, I do have a soft spot in my heart for a .357 python. I was first introduced to shooting, when I was 12, by my uncle who was a special forces vet (1969, iirc) who started me out with a .357 python loaded with .38 special. Nothing like shooting in the California desert with a python, .38 colt, AK (trophy from viet nam), and a Spanish mauser as your first experience with firearms.
