Default Cheapie 9mm

Gun show in two weeks. I'll have about $250.

I want a 9mm to get in touch with my feminine side (Okay, the ammo is cheaper).

I'm contemplating a Hmphhhahura.

Okay, a Hi Point.

If I could wrangle another hundy, I'd consider a MAC clone, but it looks like $250.

Flame me.

Did you just throw up in your mouth a little bit?

Why don't you use the 250 for ammo?

should have saved the money and got a better more respectable firearm, or used it to buy ammo.... or bought a shotgun...or hell really anything other than what you did!

You don't want a hi-point. Sure, it's cheap and maybe even functional, but you really don't want a hi-point.

You'll take it out and shoot it a few times and realize how bulky and ugly they are and all the people at the range will be sayin, "hey, how did you get that black&decker to shoot ammo?"

You'll be unhappy with your purchase before you even leave the building.

Buy ammunition, buy a .22, buy a new knife, get a taser,but get something you'll be happy with.

Otherwise, pitch in another $50 and get a ruger 9mm.

I have an @$$load of .22 ammo, but ditched my .22 rifle.

Should I consider a .22 rifle, for the pure joy of shooting all day, since I have no other practical use for it, or a .22 pistol, maybe as a back up?

I have four .22 pistols and love them all. Find a nice Ruger Mk II or III and you will not regret it...

i think the mid priced .22lr pistol is a way better idea than the cheapo 9mm.

and talk about cheap ammo, you could plink all day with a .22 for 10 or 15 bucks.

that's what i use mine for.

I had a Bersa Thunder .380 and loved it. Bersa makes a quality inexpensive pistol. How about a Bersa 9 and how much do they cost? Anybody have any experience with them?
