    A very nice start, indeed.

    I agree, you’re well on your way to becoming broke like the rest of us. Might as well empty out your sock drawer so you’ll have room for all the leather and accessories that follow...

    So what's next for your collection? I suggest either a Glock 19 or a S&W 642.

    Nice collection of guns - but please, reconsider leaving firearms in your unattended vehicle on a routine basis. It's just too easy for them to get stolen and end up in the wrong hands.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Good lookin collection. Though Id suggest getting rid of that abomination of a Hipoint and put some tritium sights on the SR9. That would be a better use of your money.

    Great start!!! Now all you need is a large revolver, a snubbie, a Glock, a compact 9mm, a .380 pocket rocket, a .40 caliber, some 22 plinkers, something old, something wierd with no practical purpose but fun to shoot, several duplicates leaving you wondering why you have 2 of something, a beater you can toss in your tool box and not care if it gets scratched, and a safe queen of collectible quality. I'm sure I've overlooked something, but this is similar to how most of our collections end up given enough time.
