    With revolvers, a box of 50. If 50 run flawlessly, so will 5000.

    I've bought a CZ P-01 and a XD9 sc for $449 each time. With tax it will take you over your limit, but the base price is there and both are excellent for carry.

    I have a 442, my first revo after 20 years of Glocks. Got mine NIB from S&W for $315. I carry in a Kramer pocket holster which makes a great combo.

    I'd say go to a couple gunshops and handle everything you can. Pick a couple you like and go to a gunrange and rent them. My personal vote would be for a Taurus ultra-light 85/851 .38+P (each is well under $300, which leaves you $$ for a very nice holster and alot of practice ammo). But there are so many guns in that price range that you'll here 1,000,000 opinions on what's best, do hands on research to find the one that is right for you.

    Any J-frame, sp101. You can pick up used Glocks all day in the 4-450 range. New M&P's can be found pretty close to 450. XD's are in that ball park, find one used and you can buy a good holster for it and still have enough for Taco Bell.

    What do you guys think of the Taurus 651? I also like the S&W 638. I really like the shrouded hammer on both of these. Taurus or Smith and Wesson??

    I've always wondered why people suggest 38's so often. Wouldn't it make more sense to purchase a 357, so you have the option of 357 or 38?

    .357's are larger & more difficult for pocket carry. Also, .38+Ps can be a handful, .357 through a snubbie is more so.

    From the poster asking about Taurus or S&W: S&W J-frames are what ALL other snubbies are compared against. I suppose if you find one for a real good price, go for it. Or try one, it may fit you better than a S&W. But all things being equal, you're probably better off getting the S&W.
