Thread: IYO, best handgun for about $400...

  1. A S&W Sigma would also fit your purpose.

    I've recently looked at S&W J frames in the 400-450 range, and I considered getting a Taurus Judge for fits and shiggles.

    Like has been said it depends on what you want it for. I'm in agreement with pretty much everyone that if it's for carry or personal defense price shouldn't really be an issue, get what you want and feel comfortable with. (Hard to stick to that with the economy)

    A S&W Airweight 642 is a little over 400 new and makes a great pocket gun. The S&W Sigma is pretty impressive for the price.

    You can get a brand new Taurus for $400.

    I agree with the advice (e.g., ClearSightTactical) that says: save up to buy what you really want. FYI, I carry an XD .45 and really do like the weapon. I think if you buy "on the cheap", you're only going to turn around later and buy what you want, and then be out that much more. I'm not saying that any of the handguns listed are cheap, just that you seem to know what you want and don't have the money right now to buy it. My .02 cents

    I have a stoger cougar .40 S&W. They are a nice pistol, never a failure of any kind.
    Also my wife likes to shoot it (not the nasty muzzle flip of my xdm .40)

    I almost traded my xdm for a Beretta cougar compact version (nib) this weekend, but it was the double action only version & had no night sights.

    I don't think you can go wrong with a cougar.

    what ever you buy if it is for self protection i would get night sights.

    Best Gun...

    yeah, I don't think very much of spending anywhere close to 400 for a gun. I have my beloved Makarov 9x18, and now a Kel-Tec P3AT. That's not to say that I wouldn't dearly love to have a SA EMP, or Kimber Ultra Carry II, but there are just TOO MANY excellent weapons out there for under 300. You can still find a nice Makarov (which is my daily carry) for about 250.

  9. What is the purpose of the pistol? Home Defense? Concealed Carry? Target Practice?

    Go with a Glock...cheaper and will never fail. All the xd's is see are overpriced. Saw many Glocks at the Tulsa gun show from $425-550 new in box. Or just get a used one, can't go wrong with Glock.
