    Recently bought a new EAA Witness Compact 9mm off gunbroker for less than $300. Have already taken it to the range 3 times with 300 rounds being fired and am in love with the way it shoots, conceals and doesn't miss a beat as far as firing/chambering etc. Built in Italy and is perfect in weight and performance so far. I carry it in a Bullard Dual Carry Leather holster on the hip. It's accurate and looks nice. I predict the price will go up when more people start discovering this one. So, I think it can most likely meet your friend's financial requirements as well as being reliable, effective and also fun to shoot.

    I carry a Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact Pro and have never had a failure of any kind with it. I would recommend it too.

    From my personal experience, I can recommend either the Kel-Tec PF9 or the Kahr CW9 (actually, I have a CW45). I've been pleased w/ both of my guns. They've been utterly reliable.

    Well he has decided to try the Kel Tec PF-9 and the Ruger LC9 at the range and decide from there. I'll let you know what he goes with after the purchase. Thanks for the help everyone, he is very excited about the Kel Tec. We're just nervous about the mixed reviews some people say they have FTE problems? As far as I researched though they seem to be able to get it working with a little help from customer service.

He did ask what I thought about the Taurus 9mm, I told him there is better out there IMO. So he's going to use his Taurus 380 for a BUG.
    Has he looked at the Smith & Wesson SD9VE? Hearing pretty good things about it, and it's close to your price range...a big guy like that should be able to conceal easily with the right holster.

    I would suggest saving a little more money and look into either the ruger lc9 or sr9c. I have the sr9c and love it. affordable and very reliable. Shoots great!

    I just stumbled across this: SCCY Ind. CPX2 9mm Handgun

    Thought it was worth tossing in here.

    Ok he says AROUND the $300-350 price range. The roger sr9c is thinner than the glock, can be found for $380, and has nearly the same trigger as the block. Bonus is two magazines (hi cap and 11-round compact). This is an exceptional value and performance in a very concealable and easy to shoot package....all for AROUND :) $300-$350!!

    a reliable gun is one you become proficient with. not one you buy because its all you can afford. he will spend that amount many times over before he can be 100% sure whatever gun he choses will go bang when its supposed to. tell him to sell some stuff on craigslist to come up with the extra cash to get a glock or mp9c.

    Do you trust a gun for carry after it fails on the range?

    I could go for this solution.
