Rossi or Armscorp .38 caliber revolver. Those can still be had for pretty cheap (under 300 dollars).

I will post up something on my Ruger P95 (320.00 dollars), and my Sigma (340.00 dollars) if you would like. I have posted range reports, but I never really went truly "in-depth" with those pistols. I would like to know who would be interested before I spend time typing something up.


Good idea, JD.

Sarge - We are getting about 3 to 4 "What gun for me" threads a week in the past 6 to 8 weeks.

With those two pistols you have, both well within the range, I think there would DEFINITELY be people who are interested if you could do it from the ground up. Take some pictures, provide some non bias insight, you might end up saving someone some money, or giving them the info that they need to make the right choice...

We post it as a write up in the open, then directly hot link it into the Bunker to get new members to join up. $12 is chaper than buying a gun that isn't what you were looking for...

Gotcha. I'll go ahead and write something up and I'll post it in this section. Then you can use your "Uber-Mod" powers to hot-link it however you need.

Sweet. Include pictures if you can, that always helps.

Thanks Sarge!!

As a side note, I have owned a Hi-Point C9, and a JCP .45 pistol. If you want any info, I'll do something on those too. I'm pretty familiar with the brand (I even used to own a .380 a while ago).

If Hi-Point is on the list, I would suggest nothing less than the .40 or .45. There is not much weight diff and I will go ahead and say .45. I posted an honest range report on the Bunker Collection of the .45. For just a few $ more (less than $250.00) one can get a new Hi-Point HD pack. Comes with laser, holster, peep sight option, hard case and a folding Ka-Bar. They have a dove-tail front bottom rail for mounting of lasers or lights. Plus, the .45's have a 4-1/2" barrell.

$400.00 limit makes me wanna suggest the Taurus 24/7 Pro Long Slide w/ 5" barrell.

I agree with Sgt the Ruger P series is a good affordable choice. From top to bottom P95 9mm, P93 9mm, P94 40 S&W. I don't think I paid much over $300 for any of them, I bought them all used.

JD, 4/21/09

I looked at your posts a couple of times and didn't notice whether you are looking at less than $400 for new pistols or if good used pistols less than $400 would qualify for your evaluation (examples- SW 3rd gen. 5906 for $315 at Summitgunbroker, also Glock 17's for $395, and Sig P6's for $395). In the same way that many car buyers are now looking at used cars as a good value the same can be said of pistol buyers. Thanks.

best wishes- oldandslow
