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...
SIG 226 Elite Stainless...
EAA Witness Elite or Limited...
Dan Wesson CBOB...
Maybe the SIG 220 Super Match
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. ;)

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.

Actually now it is between a Springfield TRP Stainless and SIG 220 Elite Stainless.

My next in line list;
M4 upper for my Colt (during ban) AR15 lower
Semper Paratus (Always Ready)

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.
