Check out the Hungarian ex-police pistols, you can find them in great shape for under $200.00. These are, all steel, copies of the Walther PP or PPK. Search FEG, and FEG PA-63. You can find them in .32, .380, or 9x18. I have owned about a half dozen of them, and I like them a lot. They do just what a pistol is supposed to do, they go bang every time you pull the trigger. For a very small one, look at the FEG SMC 380.
