    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.

    My wife found it on gun broker for like 220 and when she went to a local store to do the transfer the owner said he would sell it direct for about the same. N. Since she has her ccw she picked it up then and there

    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.

    I agree, you will find yourself far better off by waiting until you can afford a little better quality gun, the ruger mark 2 is great, I don't have any experience with the 3, the Browning buckmark I have found to be a fun shooter, and in the revolver you can't beat the ruger single six, or single ten if you prefer.
