Looking for 1st CCW that is accurate, reliable, and fun-to-shoot in $250-300 range.
I am looking for a (probably used) handgun for concealed carry that is accurate to 25 yds, reliable, and fun-to-shoot in the $250-300 range. I want something larger that .380 and imagine that would limit me to 9 x 18 Makarov, 9 mm Luger, and 38 special. I would appreciate suggestions for any other possibilities that might be in my price range that would meet my criteria. Thanks!
I'm leaning toward a Bulg, EG, or Russian Makarov, depending on what I can find.
I've considered .357's, the J-frames, and other .38s, but how would a 2-3" revolver be for accuracy to 25 yds?
I've also considered the smaller 9mm Kel-Tec's, but wonder about how accurate a Kel-Tec would be and about how punishing a 9mm Luger would be in a small framed gun for me for regular practice, or my wife for occasional practice.
I almost always dress business casual, and would likely carry in a backpack or IWB -- or coat pocket when hiking.
