My friend and I are trying to think of the best recommendation for a home defense gun on the smallest budget possible for another friend of ours. The person who is buying the gun is not knowledgeable about guns, and will not clean it often if ever and will shoot it a couple times a year. So the conversation between my friend and I went something like this. Recommend a handgun for home defense on the cheap. I responded, Glock. I was told, too expensive. I responded, used Glock. I was told, too expensive. I was then asked, whats the cheapest reliable handgun for having fun with. I said Hi-point. He then asked why I didn't just recommend Hi-point in the first place. I said I would not recommend a gun for home defense that I would not trust my own life with. Maybe it's because I can afford better but Hi-point falls into that category for me. So help me out here, revolver or semi-auto is fine(I have never owned and know nothing about revolvers). Shotgun is not an option. Whats the cheapest gun you would recommend for home defense?
