I like the approach of saving up a bit more for a slightly higher quality gun. We took the budget route with our first handgun, a Taurus PT140 (40 S&W) that we paid right around $350 for I believe. We've had a lot of problems with it. Sights popping off, and now the magazine ejects itself on every shot. We need to send it in to get the magazine issue fixed, but we're still waiting on the replacement sights to come in. I'm not discounting all Taurus', I'm just saying we had bad experiences with ours.
So I guess I like the idea of saving a bit more money.
Don't eat that pizza as often. Smoke one less pack of cigarettes a week. Don't go to the movie theater every weekend. Eat less fast food. Things like that add up quickly.
