    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.

    GSP Black Magic

    I'd have a .38 super built on a Caspian lighweight frame and a commander slide, with the deepest blueing I could find.

    definately a desert eagle in .44 magnum :D
    .50AE is tempting, but ammo is just too expensive :(

    Oh. You said "new"...

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

    Maybe a Freedon Arms in 44 mag.
    For two grand I better not have to have anything done to it! But I probably would add a scope.

    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.

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

    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.

    Baer TRS. Save the difference to later buy a second Baer TRS.

    Sig 220 and all the ammo I could carry.

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

    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.

    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

    :D
