Shadow 2 and Glock 19x seem to be 2 very popular off roster guns.

Wouldn't it be easier to ask what are some good on roster guns. I could probably come up with a couple dozen off roster guns that interest me......

Browning high powers are still on the roster at last till the end of the year.

If you want something nice off roster look at Baer or Wilsonís websites, lots of great options we arenít allowed in California or have a Smith build you a gun as you want it on any frame you want.

Depends on what you want to use it for.
HD,SD-CCW, target, competition, impress women, scare neighbors, to post pics on Calgun, etc?

There are no rostered les baer , Wilson, or nighthawks in 9mm 4Ē or 5Ē. Anyone of these guns would be perfect for steel challenge/ tactical shooting, or even punching holes in paper.

You need a CZ Shadow 2 Maria Gushchina Limited Edition.

Good gun, limited edition, as rare as hens teeth even in the free world.

I have always wanted a nickel plated Browning High Power. Occasionally they pop up in the For Sale section.

I would like a bright stainless steel Colt Government in 45 ACP

Sig P320 is a very good pistol and it gets you several different pistols in one (the self-contained fire control system chassis is the serialized/controlled part. The grip frame, barrel, recoil spring, and slide are non-serialized parts, so once you have any variant of the P320 you can swap parts (available online) to go from a full-size to a compact, different grip sizes, etc.) That means you don't need to DROS, pay for, and store multiple pistols if you don't want to (you have to pay for the modular parts of course, but without involving the government. It also gives you the ability to master the same trigger pull and basic ergonomics on one system that can be used for training, competition and compact carry.
