    As stated get a safe to put it in the vehicle. If you need it for just travelling, I would suggest just a 38 Special, nothing fancy, Smith, Rossi, Ruger, something good, but fairly inexpensive. Wait until you can carry for the bigger more fancy weapons if that's your desire.

    Glock would be a good choice. Nothing fancy about it, dependable, and high round count.

    You could go 10mm, 45acp or 357sig/40cal if you want big holes. Or you could go 9mm if you want cheaper ammo.

    I would look at the Ruger P series pistols- Usually around $300 or less used, built like a tank and reliable.

    How are you buying a handgun when you are not even 18 yet? You can't legally buy/own a handgun until you are 21...

    This has all been extremely good advice. I am leaning towards the small cheaper revolvers that have been suggested. Once I am able to carry, I am probably going to shell out for a Sig or Kimber. Until then, a used revolver will do fine. Thanks for all of the advice!

    Or look for a used Ruger P89.

    The odds are you will lose several truck guns to burglars for every time you will use the weapon to defend yourself. A glove compartment is a horribly ill-advised place to keep a weapon.

    That being said, a weapon that will be kept in a vehicle will probably not be maintained as often, and summer heat will thin lube, making it tend to migrate away from where it needs to be. I would recommend a stainless-steel revolver, lubed with a dry-film lubricant, such as Eezox.

    Not quite true. Federal law limits the purchase of handguns to those 21 or older, but possession and carry are a matter for State laws. Here in AZ you can openly carry a handgun at 18 (not sure about concealed carry for under-21s, in light of recent changes in the law).

    Actually that is a good idea. You're right the Ruger P95 is very well built, reliable, and cheap enough.

    Please don't leave a firearm in your glove compartment all of the time. At the very least, buy a safe like the Center of Mass safe and take the gun out of your car when you get home.

    The last thing anyone needs is a common "smash and grab" criminal to become armed with another firearm. It doesn't matter if it's a cheap handgun or a nice one.
