I buy mostly older designed stuff, in steel if possible, but not going back to 1911's. I don't like the grip or the gun in general much. Pretty, but I'm done with them as of a long time ago. I do have a couple of polymer guns, CZ and Walther types, no Glocks, M&P's, XD'x, etc. DAO is something I don't like usually, but I love my P220 with a tuned DAK trigger. Only one striker gun at this point, a Canik TP9v2, but the other 2 polymer guns are TDA. The Canik will soon be gone, it's a good gun, but all my striker guns have all been bad in the past and I can't get past it enough to trust it fully. In the future are a couple of traditional type CZ's and Sigs.

"Innovative" handguns? Why, yes. Yes I do.

My last two purchases, a 1911 and a CZ-75BD were both very innovative when they first hit the market ... in 1911 and in 1975, respectively.

Still waiting for the "inovative" Volley Fire to be released. Seems Standard Manufacturing is more interested in their double barrel pump shotgun, and AR platform rifles.

The Glock has been around for 35 years and there's tons of copy cats at this point. I'd hardly call that innovative. It was innovative in it's day. So was the 1911.

Maybe my TC Encore break action fits the criteria :

Chambered in .243 Win , superb accuracy shooting benchrest as long as you have no coffee in yer system ! . I'm at about 4.5 MOA at 200 meters and I am a flinch freak !

Do You Buy Innovative Handguns?
Why yes I do, I have several which were new and very innovative in 1911.

I always buy innovative handguns, 1911s and S&W revolvers.

I'd rather some of you guys let us know which ones blow up in your hand / can't find ammo for them.

Only truly innovative handgun in the last 60 years IMHO is the Dan Wesson revolver-which is sort of a modern version of the Merwin & Hulbert.

I used to be into the lastest and greatest but I've pretty much settled on my "ideal for me" defense handguns. I have five that I am slowly getting laser grips and holsters for that will "round out my defensive battery" year round.

One will require some custom work, an alloy Hi Power. No design is newer than 1955 and the oldest goes back to 1911.

One would have to define a term so generalized as "innovative".
