check out the SA XDm40. paid $475 for mine very lightly used, with about 50 rounds through it. very pleased with it. does it qualify as a budget 40?
I've had an SD40VE. It was a pretty good pistol, but not perfect. It's similar to a Sigma, but I think the trigger is better. A Glock, even though its not necessarily in the "budget" category, is much more ideal.
Bought a glock29 very reasonable
Ok so not exactly a 40 cal but I couldn't miss out on the opportunity of owning a FNX 9 got an amazing deal on it $450 & 150 rounds of 9mm
