    New or used, no specifications other than it has to go bang and be known for reliability!

    Ruger LCP/LCR/LC9
    Bersa Thunder 380

    Taurus pt709 slim, for carry
    S&W Sigma
    Heritage Rough Rider

    Ruger P90 full size 45acp, replacing 1911s in many ways, a serious contender in the category and used just in under 400.

    I've heard many older CZs can be had for around the upper part of this price range as well. I've never owned one, only shot a well hidden hammer 25acp. Well built from what I've read everywhere.

    So true. Probably the 24/7 as well. Great guns from what all my friends who own one say.

    Sig Sauer SP2022. I paid $399 for a basic model and $419 for one with night sights. These are two of my least expensive firearms and two of my most favorite to shoot.

    What is the use of the pistol, personal protection, home protection, range use...?

    Like I said, no specifications, just a gun that fires bang. Interpret that any way or every way. Read the posts thus far, it includes big and small, long and short, etc.

    Speaking of beretta you can snag a nano for about $400.

    No way, really? Must not have been as much as they'd hoped then huh? I figured it would come out competing with the shield.

    I think the retail on it is $475 so street price would have to be about $400...nowadays you'd be lucky if you can find anything let alone at or above msrp.

    From what I've seen there are more positive than negative reviews out there on the nano. I am getting mine by the end of the this week and ill be happy to offer up my personal opinion. Key thing regarding my opinion, I won the nano in the 2012 FTF Giveaway this past December, so I'm relatively unbiased that particular pistol.

    CZ82 in 9 MAK and CZ83 IN .380. Both extremely accurate and reliable. 82 is a little harder to find. 83 is readily available. Both in the $170-$270 range depending upon condition.
