Maya or Max, if you want to use what most studios use. Modo or Blender, if you want to stay on the alternative side. 
I use XSI, which is pretty good and easy for modeling, but it seems its rarely used by studios outside Japan.

Later, use Mudbox or ZBrush, if you are looking to model/sculpt organics.

I'd say stick to Blender, its evolving quite quickly and is being used by more and more studios and even though it is free it's tools are on par with commercial software..
But if you really want to spend money then yeah, id recommend Maya (great animation tools!) and 3Ds Max (atm most used in commercial enviroment)
Better buy/upgrade a sick computer for the money you would be spending on those programs :D
I wouldn't recommend sketchup though, its nice for architecture and more basic stuff but gets painful when modeling complex stuff..
ZBrush is really great to add some fine detail to your models (engravings, scratches for your gun model for example..)
And in the end its not tool that makes stuff awesome, its the dude who is using it ;)
So in short, i'd say stick to Blender and buy ZBrush..
(Note that my opinion can be biased, as I am a bit fanboy-ish about Blender, I have used Sketchup and 3Ds for some time in the past though..)

Guessing by the age in your profile, you're a student? If so you can get free educational access to quite a lot of Autodesk products along with Cinema4D.

Seems Maya is more suitable for animation.

get a book or training DVD if you want to stick with blender, if you're a student (ie have a student email take advantage of the 3dsmax/maya student versions (free)to see if you would rather use them than blender before commiting any money to them. heres some blender training DVDs:

The Blender org e-shop has lots of stuff.

Also, the tutorial site Blender Cookie is a good place to start.
