What gun(s) should I get next? A Dan Wesson RZ-45 (or insert here your favorite full size 1911 for about $1,000) or a Remington 870 express tactical with an extra barrel for waterfowl AND a Marlin 336A with cheaper end 4x scope ($50-$100)?

I already have a Nice bolt action hunting rifle (browning white gold medallion), a 30-30 lever, a pump shotgun, a break action shotgun, a .22 ruger, and a 30/40 krag. As you can see I own no pistols so I'm just wondering what to get next, the pumpshotgun is a peice of junk, (h and r pardner pump) and I can't hit worth a damn with it. I love the side by side though; :)

I'd fill the handgun niche first, but I'd likely start with something cheaper. 870s and 336s both have well-deserved legions of fans.

Sprice;

I'd fill the handgun niche in preference to the other choices first also. But, I'd sure take a good long look at Wesson's parent company's CZ97 before I plunked my money down on the RZ-45. It's also a .45ACP & in my mind offers some real advantages to the classic 1911 platform to the first time handgun owner. Mainly it's got a decocker. And it's MSRP is several hundred dollars less than the RZ-45. If you're not familiar with the CZ name, do a search here on THR. You'll find a very large, and very enthusiastic body of knowledgeable owners posting about the guns.

The Dan Wesson RZ is a very nice pistol, you won't be dissapointed.

*warning* you might develop an addiction to Dan Wesson's ;)

I don't have an RZ, but I do have a pair of PM7s (10 and 45). The Dan Wesson 1911s are really nice. Be prepared for some frustration at first with the break in period, but after that it should be a sweet shooter.
