    What should be my next gun:) What would you buy?

    Ok so I have two glocks 9mm and .45, a Bodyguard 380.... Now with tax time:) going to pick up a new carry gun this week:)

    Would like some help:) But here is the requirments:

    1. Must be able to carry (no full size 5 inches please)

    2. Must be under or around $800 (could possibly push up to 950, but cant go over $1,000 at all)

    3. No 9mm's, just not a fan of them, and I alread have one.


    I am looking at either a 1911 or a .357 revolver, but will take other options:):) Still longing for a 1911, was gonna buy one last year, but ran into some problems with money

    What would you buy?

    You apparently still haven't addressed the issue of not having a 1911 and the .357 Magnum revolver is a nice change from what you already have.

    You simply cannot go wrong with a good quality .22 pistol. You're really missing out if you don't have at least one .22 pistol. Once you got a .22 pistol you will wonder how you ever got along without one.

    That number 11 Buck Mark Plus UDX shown in the link really grabs me!

    I like that target model Mark III in blue finish.

    .22 LR Rimfire - Smith & Wesson

    I don't know a thing about S&W's various Model 22s. They seem a bit cheapo just to look at them but may be a great value. The Model 41 though is a premium pistol. I'd love to have one.

    The iconic S&W Model 19 or 66, no dash. Make it a snubby.

    If you can find one, the Ruger SR1911 is a nice gun at a very good price.

    5" might be too big but its a slim gun.

    This is for carry...I would never carry a .22, which is why I wont buy one:)

    Sig's ultra 1911 would be my choice

    A Ruger SP101 (everyone should have at least one rovolver) would round off those two Glocks very nicely.
