    So what do you guys think?
    'Frank changes guns more often than I change underwear!
    What will his next be?




    I'm thinking Smith & Wesson M&P

    He needs a Sig P220 or a P226, once he get one he will never sell again.

    Wait, what am I thinking, it's Frank we're talking about. :tongueout:

    Just joking with you Frank :supergrin:

    A double stack 1911.

    Combines the 1911 design, .45ACP power, and high capacity.

    Can't miss. It is the wave of the future :)

    Whatever he gets next, he should wait at least 4 days before selling it.

    Xds. When they come out.

    He seems to be stuck on .45 ACP. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I know what I'd like for my next gun(keeping the two that I've got by the way), I'd like either a 45acp/45Colt Ruger Blackhawk or a 9x19mm/357Mag Ruger Blackhawk. Not sure about barrel length but either would be fine for woods range deer/hog hunting and great to go out and play around with plinking. Also, I already have dies, bullet mold and stuff to load the 38/357Mag and 45acp so I'd already be able to shoot and reload for them.
    Not sure where that comment came from. I always keep my guns for at least a month before I sell/trade them. LOL
    Unless you're talking about the guy that got my ATI in trade, two days and it was up for sale, don't think he even got time to shoot it and ya'll think I'm bad at selling/trading stuff off. Two Days, Gezee.

    Having owned a few Blackhawks, I'd say get the .45 Colt / .45 auto convertible with a 4-5/8" barrel.

    I have a 5-1/2" barrel .45 Colt now. It's just not as easy to wear and draw. Plus, I think they look cool sitting flush with the ejector rod housing.

    Since you reload, you'll enjoy shooting .45 Colt from cowboy action levels (I shoot a 200 grain lrnfp at 780 fps) on up into the "Ruger Only" data in your manuals. My semi-nuclear load is a 250 grain XTP running just shy of 1,200 fps with plenty more room to spare in the data. I have loaded 300 grain bullets up to a thousand fps, but couldn't get the accuracy I had with the 250's. Anyway... a huge range of load possibilities. It may be the perfect gun for handloaders.

    My 5-1/2" .45 Colt:

    Here's a 4-5/8" convertible in .357 / .38 / 9mm I bought for the father in law...

    I have to agree. The 45LC/45APC is a fun gun. I shoot the APC more than the LC, and with Ruger you can develop some nice hunting(HOT) loads with the 45LC.

    I've owned a couple Super Blackhawk's in the past, one stainless and one blue steel, both with 7 1/2" bbls, I've owned a couple Vaquaro's(44/40 and 45Colt) and I had a Blackhawk with a 5 1/2" bbl. in 357Mag. I think the 4 5/8" 45Colt/Acp would be a nice gun to get. Lighter weight then the smaller calibers and in a pinch it'd even do well enough for HD use. Still, for hunting a longer bbl. would be nice, maybe a 5 1/2".
    I think now that I've got a good DA revolver and a decent Semi-Auto the next handgun on my list should be a single action.

    Had the chance to buy an Automag in '79.
    Shoulda bought it. Didn't reload at the time.


    Big mistake. Shoulda done it.

    Of course you know that you use cut down 308/30-06 brass to make the case for those so it'd be pretty easy to make up ammo for it.

    Frank, props to you for taking this thread in good humor. It's refreshing to see somebody who can still take a joke.

    And for my guess, I have to go with with Shield. Too trendy to not be owned for a week or so. :supergrin:

    I think if I were going for a small semi it'd be the XDs in 45acp, got to stay Brand Loyal,LOL.

    P.S.
    I'm surprised that no one brought up the Dardick and the Tround,LOL
