Man there is a lot more that needs to be explained here. What calibers, semi-auto or revolver, HD or EDC?

You can probably get a springfield mil spec like mine, and maybe a used shotgun. That would probably make ammo an extra out of pocket expense though.

A GLOCK and a shotty would probably fit the bill.

You could look at mil surps too.

Oops, you specifically said hand guns. Oh well. Keep a shotgun in mind anyway, it's a good versatile gun to be thinking about.

For $800 you could get each of the Hi-Point pistols, plus a carbine.
I got the Hi-Point .380 CF, 9mm C9, .40 JCP, .45 JHP, and the 4595TS, all for under $800.
I love shooting them all.

And probably have a bunch left over for ammo.

Ruger LC9 runs $340 for a good summer CCW and a RIA 1911 runs $420 cause everyone should have a 1911 and you still have some cash left over.
