Springfield XD... because I can't decide which size I really want
Something from Kahr... because if I get that XD I don't need one and vice versa
Sig 245... because although I like the Sig better than its competitors in this baisc platform, I want this to be a gun I'm not too upset to lose
A full size 1911... but this would be a range toy and is thus the hardest to justify
A Ruger SP101 and GP100 - I really want to try them both but don't really need either
The new Ruger Alaskan - This is just too cool
Smith and Wesson models 66, 10, and several others - Can't find the version I want or already have a gun too much like it
Taurus 445 - Can't find one
I could probably think of 12 more...

I would love to have a stainless SW 52. Plink, plink.

Since having my 226 - have to say I would like a 220 now - but cannot really justify, as I have enough .45acp platforms. So no ''excuse'' - yet!
I also have lusted after an X Frame Smith 500 (yeah - it's cannonitis again) - but resisted that. Now tho am having ''urges'' directed towards an X Frame in .460 - this could be almost an ideal cannon. We'll see, tho I suspect the expense will never really be met, despite the ''want'' factor.
Anyways - I am beginning to think of ''thinning the herd'' a bit - tho, looking at that another way - maybe I can after all finance the .460!!

THink I'd like a SIG 229 in 357 SIG, and maybe the 40S&W spare barrel on the side. My big problem is I want them ALL, well....... Almost!

I've not yet made an excuse to buy a P-7 of any flavor . . . .

CZ75 SPO1, CZ75 Tactical Sport, (incredicool commercial, saved on hard drive.), Star BM, AK pistol,( why not?), Witness 10mm, CZ 75 40sw, etc...

Next EXCUSE is SET UP!
I want a Sig P220ST (rail) with meprolight night sights, and a SureFire X200 to hang on the rail. I already have a Sig P245 that I carry constantly. It's mag capacity is just six rounds. But it will accept the 8rd P220 mags nicely and I even have a spacer for some of the five SPARES I've already purchased for the P245. So I already have a lot of P220 mags, I should go ahead and get the P220. Right? Anyway, it's been awhile since I bought a brand new gun, so the wife has agreed.

I figure I'll have nearly 70rds to launch of Speer Gold Dot and some other stuff, including the frangibles before I have to start thinking about reolading mags from the two boxes of 50 I'll also be taking.

I haven't had the excuse to buy a broomhandle Mauser yet - the right one hasn't crossed my path.
That and a S&W Model 24 and an original era Charter Bulldog blued are about it on my 'regret' list - but I think I'm up to closer to 50 handguns than not.

I get the ole cannonitis too....have always wanted a Wildey .475 and now with the S&W 500 Mag.....of course, I'd then have to get a Barrett .50 cal.

Let's see, a Sig 226 in 9mm, a Broomhandle C96/clone in about any caliber, HK P7, HK fullsize USP in .40S&W, and a high end 1911.

A 1911. Definitely wouldn't mind a field-grade Springfield or Kimber TLEII.
May 16th, 2005 02:16 PM
a tactical 45 so I would have an excuse to get a suppressor to match it
May 16th, 2005 03:09 PM
I shot a friend's SIG P220 last week, and was amazed at the accuracy....but it felt a little large in my hand. So, probably a P245 would be next on my shopping list.
