    Ok...my budget is $300 (bro getting me a pistol for X-mas). Right now it looks like Hi-Point might yield best results (i've heard mixed reviews).

    If anyone can suggest which pistol they think is the best (no pun intended) bang for the buck, please post.

    Thanks in advance.

    In your case, try to find a used Glock (Im not sure on their prices though) or take the cash and save up. It will be worth it to do so.

    I've been shopping around the net and checking out various local establishments. I have come to the realization that I'm not going to find an AWESOME gun for $300, but I'm mainly wanting to get something reliable to keep for my CCW and then get my own gun later. I wish I hadn't sold my SA 1911 .45 :sad:

    I just want a reliable gun that I can take with me as my ccw that will shoot well but not something I will worry about nicking up or just accruing the usual wear and tear.

    thanks to all for the input thus far.
