    I'd get a Police Trade-in Smith & Wesson M&P 40 from Aimsurplus.com. It's $299.95

    A local shop always has the Witness poly for $279-$299 and I recently bought a used P89 for $200 that shoots very very well even with crap ammo.
    Because its an OLD SCHOOL TANK RUGER SEMI! Nice buy.

    My P95 goes with me most places. I got it new for under $300 several years ago.

    That was my first 9mm. I gifted it to my son for Christmas. Never FTF, exception is the magazines. There are some poor aftermarket mags out there.

    surplus CZ-83. You can still get them for ~300 bucks. You'll probably have to go on an auction site.

    They are reliable and solid pistols that are big enough for home defense and small enough to carry everyday. 380 or 9x18 ammo, from that sized barrel, is not *that* bad for self defense needs.

    Just got back from my FFL with a S&W M&P Shield .45.
    Total cost after the $75 rebate and including my FFL will be under $300 by a few bucks.

    I might have missed something, has anybody figured out if holster is in the $300? IWB or OWB? Please don't say OC, that's just going to make this harder.

    If you could only have one handgun for both carry and range time
    No matter the price, the answer is the Glock 19... if you don't have enough $, save for another month or use a credit card. Simple really
