I'd see about hunting down a used Ruger MK2 or MK 3.
Of course they can be had new for $250 on up, depending on preference.

You could get a nice Phoenix HP22 for under $150.00.

I'd also say a used Ruger Mark II. Can't get any better than that but you may not find one for $200. The new Mark III is a good pistol but more annoying since it comes with a bunch of lawyer features.

The transfer fee is variable but small business's will charge what the market can bear. The paperwork is PIA and they can/will charge accordingly.

Thread: don't buy someone else's problem; increase budget to $269 and you can get a new Ruger MK II or III. I prefer the 5.5" bull barrel but for more $$$ you can get it fluted, more $$$ stainless etc.
