Why a larger frame 380acp? That sort of defeats the purpose in my mind. I guess it would be pretty soft shooting though. In that case, a used Sig P230 is going to give you the best quality for your dollar. They're easy enough to find for $400 or so, and are very well made guns.
But I'd say go with a 45acp. Basic 1911s, a myriad of polymers, and used Sig P220's can all be found within your budget. In most cases, they're all safe bets to perform tirelessly.
