Okay, I am on a limited budget and am looking for a handgun that is in the sub $200 range. Yeah, I know...not a whole lot to work with at that price, but it is what it is. Anyways, my primary use would be to take it on my solo hiking trips. I'm not really interested in plinking or anything else. Just as a means of self defense if (god forbid) I ever needed it. I'm not as concerned about wild animals (encountered plenty of them before) as I am about humans. I've run across my share of "strange" people out in the wilderness and let me tell you, it can make a person a tad uneasy without any means of protection. So, that's it...an affordable, reliable hiking gun that likely (and hopefully) will never have to be used except for occasionally for target practice just to stay proficient. Any help is appreciated.
