You can't go wrong with the Beretta 92. You can buy mags from 10 round to 30. 9 mil is cheap or was when you could buy it.

CZ 75- Probably best fits all of your criteria, although a brand new model is likely to eclipse that $500 mark. But you can come close. There are also many clones of this gun that can be had at very good prices. The EAA Witness is one of the better CZ clones you'll see, and they are available at your price point. And if he was determined to stay under $500, the Witness is exactly where I would begin my research.

BHP clones- (FM Argentine, Arcus, etc)...good $300-500 guns.

Sig P226- Excellent used can be found around $600.

Beretta 92- It's a bit of a polarizing gun, because it's massively overbuilt...in other words, it's just way bulkier than it needs to be. But it's a good gun, and that extra material can be beneficial to shooters with larger hands.


My CZ 75b and BHP. Probably have $1000 (total) into the pair:

I told him to get a 92 and now hes saying he does not want to spend more than 300-350. Im trying to get him to go the extra mile because last night he said 500$

He can get a Stoeger 8000 "Cougar" for about $399. The 9mm would be good, because it is a reasonable defensive caliber, ammo is pretty cheap and abundent, and with a 7" OAL, it would be pretty easy to carry and to maneuver in a defensive situation. The rotating barrel lockup gives them good accuracy.

Be careful on the budget. If he keeps dropping the price, he'll be in junk gun territory soon. You do not want to rely on those at all.

I would seriously look at a hi power clone, not sure of the price on those but I shot one last week and I was amazingly accurate with it. I want one so bad. Remind your dad that this gun will probably last longer than he will so it is a good investment and better to save up for something nicer.

CZ 75 Series.
.22? order a Kadet kit for it.

Edit:
Missed the price drop post. $300 to $350 is going to be a challenge, especially with the way things are right now. Even such guns as the Stoeger Cougar & the EAA Witness are $400+ these days (new.)
He's in the used market with those numbers.
How about a well worn pawn shop revolver?
