Right on, WDB. Unless he is arguing the difference between cheap and inexpensive, then he is saying that if you spend less than a certain amount on a firearm then you are either stupid or bound to be a failure to your family. That's what I take from that post, anyway.

whats often over looked when buying guns on a budget are high quality used guns. lots of people buy a gun then sell it cuz they gotta have the latest and greatest many used guns are hardly used if it all.

you can often find smoking deals on used firearms that you would normally pay out the but for which are in excellent condition.

Great point!

I know some dont quite care for the DA only, But I saw a brand new Sig P250 .45 compact for under $400 last week.

Cheap is another word for valuable in my way of speaking. To get a weapon cheap is not to run out and buy a jennings or hipoint. Its to get something that can defend myself or my family for a good price, period. I wish to allah that I could afford a base model kimber or wilson combat. Sadly im to poor.

I own a Citidel. It is a 5". It was just under $500. It came with a polished feed ramp, enlarged ejection port, skeletonized hammer and trigger. It is ambidextrous. I have easliy got 4000 rounds through it. I would recomend it to anyone.

If you are not set on the 1911 platform, you can't go wrong with a Ruger. I had a P90. Great Gun. I also own a Bersa Concealed Carry Pro. It is a compact with a double stack mag. It holds 7 +1. Good gun for the money. $400 brand new. I like it beacuse it is double action with an exposed hammer and a decocker.

I have owned 2 Taurus guns. I will never own another.

They start at about 470.00, depending where you shop at online. Which is a screaming deal for a 1911.



I sadly did not go with the purchase this christmas, instead a brand new LCD tv sits in my living room...I have shamed the firearm gods....
I have the Para, it's been a great gun so far. I paid $465 for it and am very happy. The only thing I've changed is the grips, the factory grips are hard plastic. Great gun for the money.

FWIW, the only experience I have with the 24/7 in .45 was shooting one at the range one day. It had several light strikes and failure to feed issues. My Ruger P-series has over a decade of abuse without one part needing to be replaced, including springs, with no hiccups at all. I'd own a P90 happily, but you wouldn't catch me trusting my safety to a Taurus.

+1 for the Ruger P90, I picked one up years ago for $280 and it has yet to fail me. Lots of rounds through that unit, steel case or cheap ammunition no problem.
