    So my Bday is this Monday and I have decided to buy a new gun. I have a lot on my list buy can't decide what to get, here is what I'm thinking:

    Ruger LCP .380
    SW MP22
    SW MP45
    *I'm sure there are others buy I am too non-sober to think*

    I would find a Taurus TCP over the LCP if you can find one with a decent trigger. (It's taurus, they vary).

    I think the TCP is a better gun because it has better sights and usually, a MUCH lighter trigger than the ruger. (6 pounds or so Vs. 19+ on the Ruger EVERY time).

    The question is what do you already have?

    Like Peter said, what do you already have. Not knowing that, if it was ME, look for a Series 70 Colt 1911 or looking for a "compact" a Glock 30.

    You can never have enough 45's!!

    Don't forget the standard "what is the gun's purpose" question. Carry? Home defense? Range gun? Trying to collect one in every caliber?

    Out of those three I would go with the M&P 45. I have an unexplained desire for that gun. No idea why, I just want one.

    It's been 13 hours since he drunk posted on a gun forum, he should be waking soon to tell us of his choice.

    I was seized by gun lust over the Steyr S9 (pre-A1). I finally saved up enough $ and bought one. I have never regretted that decision, and like finding that you are more enamored of your mate as time goes by my esteem for the Steyr still grows. I suggest you check one out before you throw your money away. :D

    If you are buying the gun to shoot a lot I would steer clear of the LCP. While I love mine for carry with summer clothing, (IWB holster and LazerMax), they aren't all that fun to shoot! Only reason I shoot mine at all is to keep my hand in!
