  • What's next?

    So I own a single handgun. I have a few ideas for my next two. One is set in the stone - the other not so much!

    I own a Ruger SR40. Wanted the SR9 - but the SR40 was on the shelf and I didn't want to wait the few days it'd take to have the SR9 ordered!

    My next pick up will be the Ruger SR1911 (yes I like Ruger).

    After that it's something more compact that would allow me to begin to carry (I haven't found a comfortable way to carry the full size SR40 - so I choose not to.

    But I haven't even begun thinking about this until I get the 1911 With a child on the way it'll be a bit before I get the 1911.

    Where are you looking to take your handgun collection?

    I have a P99c on layaway at Buds. That will make it 3. Then, wherever the wind takes me.

      I have the SR1911. Its a great gun for the money. Everybody who's tried it liked it. I don't think you will be disappointed. As far as a small carry gun I recommend you look at the SIG P938. Great little gun and controls similar to a 1911 if you like that platform. I know you said you like Ruger but I would avoid the LC9 for small defensive carry. Good gun except for trigger (IMO). I upgraded my trigger to GP Precision and like it better but much prefer the SIG.

          I know you have the 1911 as do some others I'm in love with it.

          As to the Ruger carry - as much as I'm a Ruger fan - I don't like their carry options (I should've mentioned that) - they just don't immediately grab me.

              You can't go wrong with the Springfield XDs in 9mm or .45 ACP for a small carry gun. I've shot the 9mm version at the range, putting 150 rounds though it. Trigger was nice and the recoil was MUCH more manageable than my Kel-Tec PF-9. A XDs is next on my list for a purchase since the Ruger SR-22 I want will be useless until .22lr ammo starts showing back up regularly at stores.
