    Okay, I have asked many times in the past abou certain makes of guns that I was considering buying and have found the input very helpful.

    This time I have absolutely no particular gun in mind but still have a $500 credit at my gun dealer where a gun I ordered was no longer available.

    If you were me and had my tastes in handguns (stainless, no plastic) what would you get? I am most interested in finding something in an autoloader. I have considered everything from a .380 NAA Guardian to a Para Ord Warthawg but have not been able to decide.

    I am open to suggestions. Try to keep in mind I want an autoloader pistol. .22 caliber firearms bore the crap out of me. I already have a shotgun coming for x-mas and never really use a rifle.

    Following is a list of the handguns I already have as to not get suggestions of guns I already own.

    Revolvers:
    .454casull Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan / 2 1/4" (stainless) still on order
    .45Colt Ruger Birds Head Vaquero / 3 3/4" (case hardened)
    .45Colt EMF/Uberti Hartdord / 5 1/2" (case hardened)
    .45Colt EMF/Uberti Hartdord / 5 1/2" (case hardened)
    .44mag Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter / 7 1/2" (stainless)
    .44mag Ruger Blackhawk/ 4 1/2" (stainless)
    .357mag Ruger Vaquero Sheriff's Model / 3" (gloss stainless)
    .357mag Ruger GP100 / 6" (stainless)
    .357mag Ruger SP101 / 2 1/4" (stainless)
    .357mag Taurus Model 65 / 4 1/2" (stainless)
    .32 H&Rmag Taurus Model 731 / 2" (stainless)


    Pistols:
    .45acp Kimber Pro Carry II (stainless)
    .40S&W Kahr MK40 (stainless)
    9mm Taurus PT92 AFT (stainless)
    .380 Walther PPK (stainless)
    .32acp Beretta Tomcat (stainless)
    .32acp Seecamp LWS (stainless)
    .22lr Ruger Mark II (stainless)

    Rifles:
    .45/70 Marlin 1895 GS (stainless)
    .45Colt EMF/Uberti 1892 (case hardened)
    .30-.30 Marlin 336XLR (stainless)
    .30-.06 Ruger M77 MKII Sporter (stainless)

    CZ75 Stainless

    with a 16 round magazine. 2007 Gun Digest says it books for $565 so that means you could get it for around $475 I would guess. A great gun in stainless to help round out your glittering collection.

    +1 on the CZ. Everyone needs at least one CZ 75 in their collection.

    The Stoeger is the only thing on the list that would interest me.

    If I were you. . .

    Smith and Wesson 625 because moonclips are cool.

    CZ75 stainless because I (you) need another 9mm.

    Springfield 1911 in stainless because the idea of having a "GI" or "Milspec" in stainless is kinda funny. . .

    BTW, what would you do if Glock came out with something in stainless steel? :eek: :uhoh: :neener:

    Kahr K9. Outstanding carry gun, stainless and fills the size gap between your "little" guns and the Kimbers. I love my Kahr K9, for me it is the best compromise of reliability (100% so far), power, shootability, capacity and concealment for all around carry.

    If I were you and had $500 and your taste in handguns, I'd also be unsure and ask other people what I should buy. If I were me, I'd suggest giving one of the hi-cap plastic fantastics a try. Maybe a CZ-75 SP01, 19+1 of 9mm. Or, with an already good sampling of the different calibers and handgun styles, I might branch out into the more exotic stuff and try a 10mm. Something like one of the 10XX smiths used by the feds back in the 90's.

    Step away from the guns for a second. (Figuratively speaking)

    You have plenty to mess around with.

    Spend your $500 on accessories, ammo, cleaning supplies, one of those catchy litle pistols safes, ammo, holsters, extra mags, scopes, ammo, new grips, night sights, laser dots, ammo, rail systems, etc..

    Oh yeah, don't forget ammo.

    I'm gonna agree with Msgt B. If you don't know what you want, how about you get accessories for what you already have?

    But if you're dead set on getting another autoloading pistol, I'd suggest a CZ like has been suggested, a Stainless Springfield 1911 or an Inox Beretta 92 or 96.

    Dillon, my guess being the RL 550B.

    More exercise for the existing troop.

    I'd suggest either a stainless Springfield 1911, or lots of ammo.

    WOW Penguin !!!

    That is some Lautenberg's Nightmare of a collection you have there. :what:

    I guess about the only thing you don't have is a stainless .45 Auto. I wish I had your problems. :D

    I've analyzed your collection, Playboy, and there is a glaring weakness:

    How about a stainless steel 10 mm for around $500.00

    Smith & Wesson Mod 1026 10 mm Stainless. I noticed you don't have any 10 mm's on your list. This handgun is good for BG's and animal defense. In addition, the 10 mm revolver is a little more than $500.00 but it's a nice handgun.

    Kimber has a 10 mm stainless as well.

    How about adding another stainless steel 10 mm for your collection. I noticed you didn' have any of them in your current inventory. Of course this will cost you in the $700-$900 range.

    How about spending the money on a class of some kind? Heck, you could put the money towards a 2-day Tactical shotgun class for the early part of next year. That way, once you get your new shotgun, you'll learn how to use it properly in a HD role.

    From what I remember of you collection (that you've posted on THR), it seems like you enjoy both classic styles and some odd-ball calibers. So how about....
