A bit out of your range, but a FN FNP or FNX should serve you well.

I am approaching 1500 rounds through my FNX40 with zero failures of any kind. Eats any ammo I put in it.

I can not say the same for my 9mm Jericho.

For a "name brand" pistol, you're pretty well looking at $400 to get into a new budget 40sw. S&W SD40, Sig 2022, Ruger SR40, Bersa, etc. You may be able to find a Ruger P-series for $300 or so, and it's probably the best option at that price.

If those seem way beyond your budget, then Hi-Point is what you're after. They're awkward feeling eyesores, but the general consensus is that they run way better than their price would imply.

I payed $119 for my 9mm hi point and $139 for my 45 hi point and I think they are both just as accurate and reliable as any. Only one ftf with my 45 none with the nine. The worst gun I ever had was SW Sigma followed closely by a Jennings. And if you really want a gun you absolutely know there won't be any failure to feed or jams I'd go with my colt 357 revolver

I got to try out a hi point while I was down south. Personally not a big fan but its definitely a good gun for the money.

Funny, because everyone who actually owns one report suprisingly good reliability with theirs. Only bad reviews I've read are from people who heard of, or seen others, or just formulated opinions because it didn't cost as much as THEIR gun.

Thats because people (like me) are smart enough not to waste any money on guns they've seen fail...

actually i have seen several that run with any ammo put through them, and if there is a problem, their warranty is one of the best there is. i have seen way more good reviews than bad about them on this forum and others. seems as most who are bashing them, are people who don't have a clue as to what they are talking about and feeding off internet rumors. people like you tend to put too much faith in internet myths than true facts.

personally, it wouldn't be my first choice for a pistol, but for the price, and someone needing a budget pistol for HD, it sure beats a pointy stick!
