Used to see a sign: How many guns does any guy really need? Flip the sign over for the answer: One more!

If I had to have just one more sidearm, forever, what would it be?

Or maybe, what is your next handgun acquisition? (mostly the same question)

Mine might be a Blackhawk in .357 Mag. My first sidearm was a BH in this caliber and I sold it for college book money! Shot great, felt good...
4.625" barrel...

Our answers will tell us where the gun market is going!!!

It would be either a 4" 357 GP100 or a 41 Mag. I would prefer a 4-5.5 inch Redhawk if there were such an animal or have one of mine cut to one of those lengths. 357 might be the better choice.

One More

My last one would be a 4 5/8 Blackhawk in 45Colt and 45 ACP, cut the ACP cyl so that you could also use 45 Auto rim and I would die a happy man. Hopefully years afer buying that last gun.

It would be a tough choice but I think that I would have to go with the new Nighthawk 1911 T3 with the built in compensator

i really want a 4", fixed sight, bobbed hammer/DAO, .357 GP100 for my next handgun.

however, if i could have only one more (i already have two DAO revolvers - LCR and SP) would go with something different than what i already have on hand. i would think seriously about a Kel Tec PMR 30... or a 4.62" bbl .22LR/.22Mag Single Six

I've got several pistols that I want, but I think my next one will probably be either a snub .38 (S&W 442 or LCR) or a Glock 26. Still wanting another carry option.

Spike12 will become famous soon enough
can't say I'm in lust with much of anything right now. I have a pretty nice S&W M27 so that pretty much takes care of my Python itch..... Maybe a pretty nice 1911 to replace my ugly Colt.

Then again, there is a gun show tomorrow....

9 1/2" Ruger .480 SRH for a revolver and a Glock 35 for a bottome feeder, that would complete my fleet of Glock .40S&W

Well maybe a Freedom Arms.....hhhmmmm
