I'm looking to purchase a cheaper handgun. Don't really much much preference on caliber other than something that is cheaper then .45 ACP. The whole purpose of the firearm is for plinking and target practice and possibly home self-defense if ever needed. I will not be carrying this firearm with me unless going to or from a friends house to shoot on his rural property or at the gun range, the only way I will start to carry a firearm with me is if the laws in Illinois changes and they allow concealed carry. The only gun I have right now is a Hi-Point .45 ACP pistol, which is a great weapon, however I'm wanting something that has a little cheaper ammo and less weight. I have found 3 different firearms to consider in my price range. 1st one being a used Glock 22 full size .40 caliber. 2nd being a new Taurus TCP compact .380 caliber. 3rd being a new Rugur LCP compact .380 caliber. I have heard good things about all 3 brands and I know that the Taurus and Rugur both are the lighting and smallest of the 3. Research shows me the .380 auto ammo is just a dollar or two cheaper then the .40 S&W ammo. I can probably pick up the Glock for $350 which research shows me is a fair price and is at an Illinois gun dealer, while the other 2 guns are $300-$310 and are a Missouri dealer, so I would have to get it transferred to an Illinois dealer and pay their transfer fee. Which gun should I go for? Also keep in mind that I do weigh 350 pounds so I have bigger hands, and since I haven't ever held a compact gun, I'm not sure how comfortable one would be in my big hands.
