    The world is your oyster. You can get almost anything for that - except H&K or the metal Sigs.

    In no particular order:
    Glock
    Sig
    M&P
    XD

    I suggest you go to a gun store that has a good selection and hold a few without buying anything. If there is a store in your area that rents guns, try a few out. Develop an opinion on what you like, then buy that.

    For pocket carry...hard to beat Kimber Solo. Sweet trigger, accurate, easily concealable.
    For something a little bigger, hard to beat the Walther PPS. Nice trigger, accurate, the new James Bond gun.
    IMO.

    Hammer or striker? DA or SA? Steel or polymer? Auto or revolver? Caliber preference?

    I have three suggested guns...they're all Glocks...but I am a bit biased.

    I'd put the 600 & 700 together and get a 1911.

    Right now, if its like shops around here buy the gun that you find in a gun store.

    Pocket size and 8 rounds of .45 don't go together very well - unless you have really big pockets. In .40 it might be possible - I think Kahr makes some smaller guns in .40 but I don't know if they're in your price range - and getting anything that holds even 7 rounds of .40 in your pocket will be a lot easier than getting it out of your pocket in a hurry.

    Glocks don't have an external hammer. In fact, neither do the XD, M&P or Kahr.

    I'm confused by the rest.

    A Glock 29 is about $500-600 new. Add a few extra mags and some ammo and your budget is spent.

    Hope this helps....

    Glock 26 would be my choice. If you don't like the Glock ergos check out the M&P C or XDM C models.

    Agree with this... spend the extra and get a 1911... Kimber, Springfield, Colt... Even the new Ruger SR1911 and SR1911 Compact are around the 800-900 range at most places(although hard to find in stock at the moment)..

    If 700 is your max, then Glock, M&P, XD would be my recommendations, and of course in .45:)
