    If you have your ccw permit, then the LCP is something that will work with your attire......no matter what. Something this small is darn near a necessity.

    There's no fun in owning it, or shooting it......but, it fits a specific need that you don't have covered.

    Gsg 1911 bc its so darn fun to shoot, but if u need a carry weapon the lcp is a good bug, you already have a g19 so no need for the 92 though they are sweet.

    Personally, I would get the Beretta. Great shooting pistol. Parts will almost always be extremely easy to find, since the military uses them.

    Guys.........you seem to be missing the point.

    He asked for our opinion between the Beretta 92fs, Gsg 1911 in 22lr and Ruger LCP.
    I'm not seeing a revolver or shotgun in that mix.

    I'm with hogship (guess all us hogs think alike). I would go with an LCP. Every collection needs a mouse gun. You probably have enough .380 ammo for your PPK to share with it.

    The revolver suggestions make sense too. S&W 617 or 317 in .22 LR or a S&W model 29 or 629 in .44 magnum would be my flavors.

    LCP- for pocket carry.
    Beretta 92- because its a great gun

    The LCP does fill a niche in your collection, if you carry concealed, as mentioned.

    I'd pick the Ruger 22/45 before the GSG. Mine has been great. The GSG is probably fine, too, but .22 LR 1911 is just not for me.

    Beretta... the LCP is pointless, you have a PPK.

    If you can concealed carry AND find .380 ammo I'd get the LCP.

    I like the idea of the GSG .22lr 1911 because it would be the cheaper to shoot of the two full-size guns you're considering. Plus you could accessorize it with a variety of 1911 grips.

    But if you're looking for a nice classic gun to add to the collection and you don't care about having as much range time with it(as you would with the GSG), I'd go with the 92.

    I'd probably go with the 92.
