For once I agree with Canebrbroken, although only as a second choice.

The Bersa Thunder can be had for under 300 and is da/sa!!!!

And I'll take your Bryco!

i don't want to risk keltec, not saying i wouldn't own one just not yet. the lcr is a killer snubby but in 357 i don't trust my hands to hang onto it during fire. im 130 pounds tops at 5 foot 8 inches. and i dont have velcro hands. the m&p looks nice that is an option, and the bersa i want to do more research before i buy. what about police trade ins? are they reliable? the glocks that are trade ins are 350 to 400 which is amazing. Beretta m9's 450 that is breath taking. i have always wanted a glock. but i want to see every option before i buy. i also am trying to get something with a rail for a light when its on the night stand. and i can take it off while i carry. also i saw the rock island 1911 for 350 give or take. but no rail. i feel like im at a dead end on a choice... now i know why it takes so long for females to buy wedding dresses hahaha

I've got a guy I've used for both police tradeins and police confiscated guns.

I don't think you'll find a single person who will say a bad thing about Bersa. Very high quality from what I've read everywhere on the internet. I'd highly recommend it over a Glock, better price too.

is the bersa a gun you can walk in and then out in 30 mins with it in hand? what im trying to ask is is it widely in stock? i am very impatient when it comes to guns. 30 min wait for the FBI phone call is too long

I don't own one, so all I can do is relay what I've read. I'd do some quick research online. Check Buds reviews section. If anything bad is going to be said about a gun it will be found there.

A ruger P95 might work for you if you are comfortable carrying a 1911. The P95 is smaller than the officers 1911. It has a rail and you will have enough money left to get a 100 pack of WWB and an ebay light.

The p95 I've read is superb. Not sure about price but I like the SR9C better. It has two mags, one high capacity for range practice and one compact for concealed carry.

I've thrown this out in a couple similar threads, but the P250 is a great sub-$400 gun.
