    may go as high as $1200 including everything taxes shipping whatever.

    I am a CZ fan, 1911 fan, but open minded.

    help me out with some ideas.

    Browning Hi-Power. Everyone should own at least one.

    good suggestion!

    been thinking p-38 and p-08 as well. Love that hi-power feel too.

    any particular hp?

    I like your thinking

    I have a nice small collection but there are spaces to fill.

    My basic needs are met but I love guns so when i have the cash I buy one.

    What would you buy right now with 1200 on the table in front of you?

    Why get just one pistol? With that amount, you could get 10-12 Hi-Points! :D ;)

    Get this in the caliber of your choice!

    The gun is becoming my favorite pistol by far. I paid $489 plus tax and since my local dealer didn't stock them he charged me $30 shipping but with shipping and tax it came to $556 OTD. Superb SA trigger. As good as my 1911.
    Fully adjustable rear sight. Just a great pistol overall. 5" match grade polygonal barrel. Superb fit and finish.

    I'm thinking about getting an EAA Elite Limited in 10mm for $960 NIB. I just have to have my local gun store order it. It comes in 9mm, .40S&W, 10mm, and .45ACP. You should get one and let me know how it is, before I get one lol.

    great suggestions keep em coming.

    I did not realize I could get an STI for the price.

    That witness sure looks nice. Do you think it would be better than a CZ-sp01?

    I like the cz compact Idea. I don't have one. have been heavily considering a p-01 or an sp-01.

    I have a Witness Elite Match in .40. A lot of gun for the money. I had an CZ P-01 and traded it. The Witness is much better IMHO. But they are two different types of pistols. Not a fair comparison really.

    For carry, the P 01 would be much easier to conceal. For the range, the Elite Match is better by far.

    Hi-Powers are nice but atleast for me they need some work out of the box.
    You will need a trigger job and if you are like me the stock hammer will bite your hand.

    I have never shot the STI Trojan that lists for a little over $1k but if its like STI's higher end models Im sure Its nice.
    Ive always like the Kimber Eclipse as well. For some reason I havent ever got around to buying one yet.
    Browse the auctions maybe you could run into a used Wilson or Ed Brown for close to your price range.

    You like CZ, and 1911's. Get the CZ-Dan Wesson 1911.

    A Springfield GI, spare magazines, spare parts and all the ammo (or handloading components) the rest would buy.

    great ideas

    lee

    my existing s&w 1911 trumps a springer gi. The trp however was another interesting suggestion.

    I am a huge Leatham fan.

    keep the suggestions coming. I am suprised not to hear from the plastic crowd.

    I would consider plastic too. sort of partial to glocks w trigger jobs and walther p99 made in germany also.

    looking at sti could lead to wood.

    Thanks for the help!

    hk

    conceptualy hk has everything

    in execution I find them too big and in genreal not worth the cost.

    now if I could get an mp5a3 that is another story

    even given hk 91 vs fal i would go fal.

    if I had way too many guns and still had money I might go for a p7m8

    so many choices with that kind of money, what are you looking to use it for? range gun? plinker? competition? carry?

    id check out the cz custom shop sp-01, sig p220 series, sig 226 sct, sig 229 sct, or one of the eaa elite series pistols.

    the sigs are fine enough pistols but I am not hooked yet. Most spit brass in my face. makes em sort of hard to like.
