    Question Next gun purchase?

    Undecided, but ideally something with a fairly slim grip.

    Undecided between another 9mm or a .45 too.

    Have a HK P2000SK for CCW so that is covered. Would be nice if the gun was fairly easy to CCW, but that is secondary to shooting nice, looking nice and essentially having a nice home defense/range gun. Prefer metal over poly for the next purchase.

    Prefer < $1200 out the door.

    What I've come up with...

    CZ SP-01 Custom...

    Hi Power...

    http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/firearms/detai...t_id=051&type_id=001

    SIG 226 Elite Stainless...

    http://www.sigarms.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetai...ryid=7&productid=169

    EAA Witness Elite or Limited...

    http://eaacorp.com/handguns-witness-elite-stock-TP.html

    Dan Wesson CBOB...

    http://www.cz-usa.com/product_detail.php?id=66

    Maybe the SIG 220 Super Match

    http://www.sigarms.com/Products/ShowCatalogProductDetai...yid=40&productid=160

    Or another solid 1911 Colt, Springfield, S&W, STI...

    I'd want the gun to look pretty, so I'd probably get the 'lower end' guns refinished in say hard chrome or a nice satin nickel or another nice looking finish.

    I love my SP-01, not the tricked out custom model. It's great to shoot and as an added bonus you can put a bayonet on it. ;)

    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    I suppose I could do an evil black rifle. Think I'd rather get another hand gun though.

    I will almost for sure get the HK P30 when it comes out in Sept.

    Edit: Leaning towards a nice .45 now.

    You cant go wrong with a nice 1911 of some sorts. A Springfield TRP (it will need a little help to get it right) is a wicked gun. Hi powers are always nice too.

    Thats a tough choice, but the TRP is easier to tinker with.

    You want metal, you want slim, you want nice looking, you don't have a .45 auto, want less than $1200, then get the most popular handgun in America, a 1911. Make it a Colt.
