What if you were given $2000 to spend on a single new handgun? What would you get? What you have done to it?

Probably a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special, or a Walther GSP Black Magic.

SIG 210-5 Sport Heavy Frame.

January 19, 2003, 05:11 PM
with lots of ammo. Good shooting:)

January 19, 2003, 05:14 PM
I'd have a .38 super built on a Caspian lighweight frame and a commander slide, with the deepest blueing I could find.

January 19, 2003, 05:19 PM
Another P7M8 and a buttload of mags.

January 20, 2003, 06:02 AM
Not even enough to buy me a MK23... :neener: :evil:

January 20, 2003, 06:48 AM
definately a desert eagle in .44 magnum :D
.50AE is tempting, but ammo is just too expensive :(

January 20, 2003, 08:09 AM
C96 Broomhandle Mauser.

Oh. You said "new"...

Hmmm... Either a Baer TRS or a Wilson CQB; whichever I found first.

January 20, 2003, 08:15 AM
Maybe a Freedon Arms in 44 mag.
What you have done to it?
For two grand I better not have to have anything done to it! But I probably would add a scope.

January 20, 2003, 09:31 AM
For a single pistol I would also have to go with the P210-5. Or it would get me about half way through an engraving and gold inlay job on my German Walther PPK.

January 20, 2003, 10:40 AM
definately a desert eagle in .44 magnum

I think the question was about buying a handgun not a artificial penis :):)

January 20, 2003, 02:27 PM
Freedom Arms Field Grade in .454 Casull, 4 3/4" barrel, go for the action job and the black micarta grips, and one of there cross draw holters to boot. :D

$990 Colt 1911A1 WWII Reproduction
$500 Customization to make a colt acceptable
$375 500 Rounds of Corbon 230 Grain .45ACP +P
$125 Fedora
$10 Lots and Lots of Toothpicks (ala Chow Yun Fat)
the look on the BG's face, priceless

January 20, 2003, 03:48 PM
In order to fit those stipulations, I would go with a Pre-ban Krinkov SBR 223 built on a Norinco 84 reciever with a folding stock and a 30 rounder loaded with ballistic tips.
My permit says I can carry a firearm, it doesn't say it has to be a handgun. :)
I'd need a custom holster.....

Probably something along the lines of an RRA Bullseye Wadcutter 1911A1. Only mods would be a set of Nill adjustable stocks. Anything left over would go towards a Dillon 550.

Right now? A single brand new hand gun? Probably a really good deal on a Springfield Pro. If I couldn't get one under $2,000, then a Rock River Arms Limited Match with Novak sights. If I didn't want to wait 18 months, then probably a HK P7M8 and several cases of ammo.

January 20, 2003, 05:01 PM
Baer TRS. Save the difference to later buy a second Baer TRS.

Mike Irwin

Sig 220 and all the ammo I could carry.

Stop at a nice restaurant for lunch on the way back.

January 20, 2003, 08:03 PM
Colt Mil-Spec, crisp 4# trigger
holster, belt
still more mags
Mike's got the right idea...steak and tail , cheesecake and coffee for dessert.

January 20, 2003, 08:03 PM
Buy a second Glock 17 $470. Add Mep nightsights $65, 3.5# trigger job $65, & extended mag catch $30/slide stop $18 total $178. W/ pistol $178 + $470 = $648. New holster $110. $648 + $110 = $758. $2,000 - $758 = $1242. Spend the $1242 on a national training school, 5 days.

January 20, 2003, 09:52 PM
I do so covet a Sig P210, upscale, and loaded. That would probably take care of most of the 2 grand.

Most likely a SIG P210-6.

Best Wishes,

A Daisy Red Ryder BB gun, Wal Mart edition ($24.95). 18 k Gold BB's to shoot right out that fine barrel. Custom engraving on the stock saying: My best friend. With me through the good times, never left me in the bad times.

And then I would take the remaining $1900 and buy a kick butt 1911


January 20, 2003, 11:23 PM
Wait! I have a regular P210, don't know what model, but it has fixed sights and is great. What I don't have that costs about $2000 is a Semmerling.

January 20, 2003, 11:57 PM
One of those biathlon rifles. They come with skis, right?

No question about it.


January 21, 2003, 12:49 AM
Maybe a Colt 1991 with new rollmark, refinish frame to gray, get a Dawson light mount, carbon fiber grips, 30 LPI checkering, ambi safety, ghost ring sights, bull barrel and tungsten guiderod :)

January 21, 2003, 02:30 AM
2 large would get me a phat carry 1911 racegun. Start w/ a pony. Get a skeletonized hammer/trigger w/ action job/street reliability package, beavetail grip safety, lower & flare ejection port, bevel mag well, ramped barrel, tighten frame to slide, match barrel bushing, dehorn, Heinie Slant Pro 8 night sights, & finish it off w/ Birdsong T so frame, slide, barrel, & trigger/hammer were all black. Black rubber grips w/ finger groves. Of course not knowing jack abut 1911 raceguns I don't know if any of these mods are help the pistol?
