    Cheap bullets would be a .22 out of your choices the smaller the caliber the less expensive the ammo.
    Depends what you use it for - 9mm- to a .45 they all will have power..

    9mm = ~10 cents a round
    .40 - ~15cents a round
    .45 acp - ~20-25 cents a round.
    .45 Colt - .30-40 cents a round :hs:

    A good pistol to get is one you like and enjoy shooting.. find a place to rent some and try them out.

    The usually OT response is Glock, XD, Sig, H&K etc.. but doenst make sense to drop that kinda money if it donest fit in your hand or you dont like it.

    i saw a pic of the glock 34 and it seems pretty nice. what do you think? it's 9mm too so bullet's wouldn't be too much.

    I'd get the 26 if you were to get a Glock for a carry weapon. To me it has some weird ergonomics though to where it seems like I have to purposely tilt the barrel towards the ground. I like the ergonomics of the XD better.

    I may off base but it sounds like you're inexperiened with handguns. Take a training class and go from there.

    I don't know about NJ, but IN is backed up right now. I've heard it could take as long as 10 weeks here.

    Even that's outrageous. When I took my wife to buy her first gun, it went like this.

    We were driving around and saw a gun store. I said, "Hey, let's stop there and just look around." We went in, she said, "I like that one! Should I buy it?" I said "sure" and about 15 or 20 minutes later we walked out of the store with it.

    :werd: I shoot a P226 and love it! Would probably go with a P229 if you plan on carrying it though.
