    It looks like I have backed myself into another collection goal.

    While updating my Excel spreadsheet on my firearms I noticed something. I have a gun (rifle and or pistol/revolver) from every decade between 1900 and 2020 except the 2000's decade. Not excited about a gun btw 2000 and 2009 but you have to do what you do have to do. On the other hand I am very hopeful I will be able to buy a gun from the 2020 and 2029 decade.

    Fingers crossed.

    That is impressive and good luck on finding them after you realized the gap. That is after all the fun part. Besides shooting them.

    So the question is what handgun do I get that was shipped between 2000 and 2009? I have .38SW, .38 special, .44REM, .22lr, .357 and .45LC as the calibers of my existing revolvers/rifles and really don't want to introduce another caliber of ammo to have to store. I do have 9mm, and .45ACP for my pistols however. I am thinking "L" frame as I don't own an "L" frame. I have "I", "J", "K" and "N" frames in S&W revolvers so an "L" frame would be nice in that regard.

    Suggestions anyone? And under $500 if possible as I still have some K frames I want to collect.

    686 + or 586 come to mind as being 38/357 and are excellent shooters. The + are 7 shot. And is a L frame.

    Well I put a bid in on a Model 65-8. They discontinued the Model 65 in 2005 and the -8 was the last tech change listed so it almost has to be a 2000 decade gun. The downside is it is not an L frame. The upside is it is a Model 13 in stainless steel. Will know sometime next week if I won.

    I just "passed" on a 696 no hole on GB for $850 only because my 01FFL is out of commission for a while. I have a HH model but would have REALLY liked to pick up that first year 696. Just an example of some "nice" guns that were made from 2000-2009.. (don't forget the Heritage models...some of those show up unannounced on GB and sell "cheap"...)

    What a terrible problem to have! A little different direction but how about a nice 1911? I know a semi-auto bottom feeder but a lot of fun to shoot and they have gear triggers.

    I have my quota of 1911's. Really like the K frames best of all. I have a Ruger SR1911 Commander in .45 and 9mm and a Rock Island .45. All great pistols.

    I had never thought about your 'decades' question before and actually had to refer to my own spread sheet. I have the 1880's through the 2010's covered except for the 1900's and the 1910's (must been asleep at the time). But to your specific question about the 2000's, CZ was making some very nice Model 452 .22 caliber rifles during that period (serious accuracy and quality for the price). That was also the time frame for the S&W 952's and 945's but they are a little pricey.
