    But he tells me no more than $300... Does not plan to conceal carry.

    Suggestions? :o

    Does it have to be new or would he be willing to buy used?

    can be used.

    This will be his first gun ever and he doesn't have a lot to spend.

    There are some hi-power clones that you can get for under $300. There's the Hungarian one (FEG) and Arcus. I have an Arcus 98C (98=double action, C=compact). There's also the 94 which is single action. Both come in fullsize and compact. Mine was like $250 new and is awesome.

    Sometimes you can find a Taurus for close to $300. I think I saw a few on gunbroker.com the other day for about that. I believe it was a 24/7, which I have no personal experience with, but I think that's the same model taurus my brother in law bought, and he seems to like it quite a bit. :dunno:

    Edit: CDNN has EAA stuff around 299, a Taurus or two for 249.. tell him to look there.

    I picked up my p89, for about that.

    I recommend replacing the grips with hogue's. Make it a much nicer gun.

    I love my P94, but I doubt you'll find that for $300 new, unless you get one hell of a deal. I really loved my dad's P89 as well, which you should be able to get at that price.

    Yeah, I was looking on Ruger's webpage and their semi-autos MSRPs are expensive and I don't know any gun stores that give big deals below MSRP around here. Most were like $460+ MSRP

    J&G Sales has a Ruger P94DC for $299.95, but it's .40 S&W, not 9mm. It's blued and comes with Hogue grips w/Ruger logo. It's listed in their Shotgun news ad, page 33 of volume 60, issue 6. which is the March 6, 2006 issue.

    edit - I bought a P94 stainless a few weeks back, but it was $375.
