    Another one of my "I can't decide" threads!

    I'm expecting a healthy tax return and wish to fill my gun safe a little more. I have a very long list of guns, but I usually only buy one at a time and more often than not, another gun takes its place on the list. This is my collection so far,

    Ruger 10/22 carbine
    Romanian WASR 10 AK variant
    Ruger SR9
    Glock 19
    Glock 26
    Springfield Armory XD45
    Smith & Wesson 642 .38

    I am thinking about finally replacing that shotgun I sold to a friend, but I could also use a big bore/powerful handgun for when I go camping or hiking like a Glock 20SF or Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum. My ammo stash isn't that great either, so I might just buy ammo instead. I'm expecting just shy of $950 dollars.

    What to do, what to do!?

    That must have been quite a tax return if you managed to pick up five guns including a Kimber 1911 and an AR-15.

    What about a .22 Long Rife handgun? Great for economy, practice, and fun.

    Since you live in Alaska, a .44 magnum would be a nice thing to have when you go outdoors to camp or hike. Get the Ruger Redhawk.

    replace the sold shotgun. SuperNova Tactical is the best multi purpose gun on the list IMHO.

    I must have good taste because the poll is making it even harder to decide LOL!

    I remember the first handgun I had ever shot in my life is my Dad's Ruger Redhawk .44 with a 6" barrel. The first shot I made was dead center on the target. My Dad's expression on his face was priceless, and I had to pick my jaw up off the ground.

    Well you only have one wheel gun listed and it is a smaller one so I voted for the Redhawk.
    Well that and I miss mine

    The big hole in your collection would be fixed by the Benelli, second choice is 44 Mag

    Other: I like pie.



    Next to the critically important pie option that you neglected, I say it would never hurt to add a shotgun to your arsenal.

    Well since I live in Alaska I'm thinking about the Redhawk in 454 Casull. How much more recoil with the 454 compared to the 44? I shot a S&W 500 with I think it was a 3 or 4" barrel. That sucker was a monster.

    Get a Mossberg 500 for the shotgun or a Remington 870.

    Then, buy ammo!

    I'm sick of polls but thats not how I voted.

    Ruger ... except I prefer the Super Blackhawk over the Redhawk. I get better groups on the range. Just hang on to that grip!
