    In the $600 - $800 range, . . . list handguns you would place on your "buy list".

    An option could be "two pistols".

    It could be "This pistol, plus _____________" . . . Fill in the blank with accessories.

    If you're specifically looking for between 700-800, I don't have anything. If 800 is simply your upper limit, I'm looking at getting a S&W M&P9 in the near future. Although I guess with trigger work and night sights, it'll probably be in the 700-800 range.

    An option could be TWO pistols.

    This is just for fun. . . to see what others would get.

    If I had that much to spend, I would prolly get a 1911. A Ruger, if I could find one.

    Updated the first post to add:

    I have no idea how to answer this question with no qualifiers other than a very decent price range.

    kcshooter, . . . there aren't any qualifiers. Just a "what would you do" thread.

    Every gun I own was under $800. Each was purchased to fill a particular niche. I have long exceeded my "needs" and am now purchasing guns that I find interesting.

    Next up is a G21 - I'd have it already if they were available. Should be here in early July.

    After that, my list is complete.

    Well, then, I'd buy a wheelgun and semiauto in 22lr.

    Probably the Taurus 990 4" and ATI 1911-22.

    Lots of good choices in that range. One hole in my collection that wants filling and can be had on that budget is a SIG P226 or P229.

    For those who are saying ".22 revolver and something else", you might very well not have enough left over after you get the revolver.


    Depends on what you get of course, but anything much more than a Rough Rider will pinch that budget.

    For just about the $800 mark, I bought an STI Spartan IV, a few extra mags, a nice holster, and enough ammo to function test it's reliability. I'm pleased with it, and would do it again.

    Is this if I was starting from scratch, or based on what I already own?

    If starting from scratch I'd probably get a SIG SP2022 ($350) for range fun and home defense and pick up an LCP ($280) for concealed carry. The SIG could also be carried but the LCP can go anywhere anytime. That way I'd have my two biggest roles filled and anything else I'd buy would be gravy.

    Based on what I already have, since my home defense and CCW roles are already filled, if I just had $800 laying around for a pistol I'd probably look for a P-series SIG, an HK USP, or a BHP. Just another something fun.

    CZ something or other, and if you have any cash left over, a .22 Revolver, something like an old H&R or Hi-Standard or a Heritage, or something like that.

    You are really missing out by limiting yourself to one manufacturer.

    First option look for a used Browning Hi-Power I can't extol their virtues enough and I love to shoot mine.
    Second Option
    Get 1911 and something in 9x18 for fun I don't know. As much as I love a good Bargain I would get one great gun and forego the second.
