I'm thinking something used would be best any ideas? thanks
Are you looking for a range gun or carry gun? You can find many J-frame smiths for carry brand new around $400. You should be able to find them used around $300. Now for a range gun try to find a good deal on a ruger or older smith on a larger frame. Try looking online, there are deals to be found. You just have to do the work and find them.
Buds Gun Shop has model 10 for 269.00. 4 inch barrel,
Look at some by charter arms line
I bought a J frame 642 for $375 NIB. I would assume you can find a used one for $300 or less. Also the EAA Windicator is less than $300 new.
I want that but I dnt think it ca compliant
Buds has some deals. Have heard good things about them.
Did you look at the police trade-in's at J&G?
EAA Windicator is a great gun. Tough to beat for the money. I had one. Sorry I got rid of it.
j frame is what im leaning towords, iv been looking online but im having trouble finding anything under 300 2'' barrel is what i want too
armscor makes a 38 special for under 300 dollars.
I bought my wife a Rossi model 461 snub nose .357 mag revolver for Christmas. She shoots .38 special out of it....real nice handgun for the money. It was only 299.00.
J frame new isn't a whole lot more than 300 - approaching 400. But used should be cheaper.
I recently found an old police gun - S&W model 14 - paid $250. It's not really a good conceal gun though. More of a home protection gun....
I have a J frame, too. Model 438. I surely do trust the revolvers more that the semi-autos. Though my regular carry seems to always be a Ruger LCP - simply because it is so easy to carry in so many situations.
Life is a riddle...compromise...
As I said, I paid $375 for my J frame new, that's not much more than your $300 limit. Save up for a little bit and get what you really want.
Look for a S&W model 36 used. 38 spl. No lock BS. CABELA'S gun library for a start.
Consider shooting wadcutters in 38 special. Not a lot of penetration but a big fricken hole. Stopping power without collateral damage. If you can shoot. Don't forget a good flashlight for night time blue meanies in your home.
I use DEWC's for practice rounds in my .357 mag, but .357 mag HP's when I carry. I love the perfect round holes they punch through the paper targets with no rips and tears. Never really thought of using them for a defensive round.
Might be hard to defend when you get sued, but I would use the collateral damage defense.
Charter is your best option. Before charter was sold they were very popular with LEO as a backup weapon. They same people that built the great charters bought the company back. Avoid the charter 2000 models. they were designed by crew disaster.
If you live in a castle doctrine or a stand your ground state a civil suit can not be filed if you are not found guilty of criminal charges.
