I'm going to agree with someone off of the first page, if it's not too late.
Ruger LC9 (or similar...KelTec PF9, for example) and a RIA 1911. I'd get the 1911 in the proper caliber, but if you're looking for cheaper shootin' then don't let anyone talk you out of a 9mm. I have a 9mm 1911 and put 3x the amount of rounds through it compared to my buddy who's got it in .45ACP for about the same price and MY wrist doesn't hurt at the end of the day. Plus, since I'm not hesitating over the recoil I am much more accurate with mine!
