    Hi All:

    I'm thinking about adding to my relatively small handgun collection, and am unsure of what direction to go in. I already own the following:

    Glock 19 Gen 4
    Glock 41 MOS
    Springfield XDS 3.3 45 ACP
    S&W 686+ .357 Magnum

    In the past I've owned the following and ended up trading them in:
    Sig Sauer P238, CZ-75 BD, Springfield XDm in .45 ACP, Glock 22, M&P Shield in 9mm.

    I very much prefer striker fired guns, and price is not a big deal. I also prefer 9mm or .45ACP, and I do like Glocks a lot (but am open to other manufacturers and calibers). I could go for any size as well (full, compact, sub).

    Thanks for helping with my brainstorming. I'm kinda stuck.:banghead:

    Take care and safe shooting!
    C

    Outside of Glock look into the Walther PPQ (9MM and 45), HK VP9, and SIG P320.

    Your collection is already enviable. Very nice indeed.
    You may want to take a "fling" with the old Communist bloc firearms...the cold war "relics".
    Makarov, CZ82, Radom P64 in 9x18.
    M57 and CZ52 in 7.62x25.
    Try it, you may like it!

    You're short a single-action wheelgun, too.. even one in .22 can be surprisingly hard to put down once in hand..

    A 1911 would make a great addition, but if you must have striker fired I would go with a Walther PPQ

    Can't go wrong with a Ruger MKII, or Browning Buck Mark.

    You certainly do not want a vintage S&W 36 or 60... or anything k-frame at the present time...

    because I don't need the competition while I shop for one

    S&W M41 for your .22 needs.

    1911 because everyone should at least try one.

    If this was in general, I'd say you need another revolver, but since it is in autoloaders, I'll say a 1911. Not striker fired, but I think you'll like the SA trigger.

    (Pay no attention to the 1911 haters behind the curtain.) :D

    I have had a sr9 c since Christmas. I was a revoler guy for ever. I shoe horses in SE AZ . I go to some remote ranches that are posted by the fed gov enter area at your own risk. Due to illigals and drug runners. Sr9c came with a ten round and 17 round mag I fire 50 rounds a week in practice on my own property and have never had a hickup .My wife thought I should have a higher round count just in case. Also carry a S&W 1500 3006 bolt gun. for a little more range if needed.

    How about a Ruger Blackhawk Convertible .357/9mm to add to the collection?

    They are fun and accurate and would fit nicely around what you already have in the collection.
