    Cheap gun

    Just wanted some suggestions for a gun that is pretty cheap to buy, ammo is reasonable, fun to shoot, and accurate. While I know some of this is subjective I am looking for opinions. I currently have a Taurus 650 CIA .357 stubby revolver, Kel-tec P-3AT,and an off brand .22 6" barrell revolver. While the .22 is accurate there is no thrill of shooting it. I guess just not enough punch. The taurus and the p-3at are both good for the purpose of up close but neither are very accurate or fun to shoot. I am kinda looking in the direction of a semi-auto since I already have two revolvers but open to hear what everyone out there has to say. This is not going to serve as a home defense weapon or a ccw as I already have those covered so I am not that concerned with reliability as my life is not going to depend on it.

    Well - the old cherry eh? The cheap gun

    If not for defensive purposes then we can allow for some slight reliability reduction maybe but - too cheap and if the gun fails terminally - money has been wasted, simple as that.

    I am no fan of Hi-Points but a cheap 9mm for knocking around could well be just this - 9mm for economy too. One and a half C notes should get you this - cheaper even if a used one as they have poor resale value.

    Better tho spend some more and get a P series Ruger in 9mm - a P95 DA/SA secocker, on poly frame, could well be found used for let's say $225 or so - and they are built rugged and shoot pretty well too.

    These are what first come to mind for ''econo-plinking"

    BTW - despite your relaxed specification - I still would NOT waste money on Lorcin, Jennings, Raven etc - leave them out.

    I'm with P95. A used Ruger P89/90/95 type in 9mm will be cheap with cheap ammo. As a general rule they will eat anything you feed it. You can also find plenty of 15 rnd mags for $12-$15.

    How Cheap Is Cheap???

    Inexpensive means different amounts to different folks.

    Great Factory Reconditioned SIG pistols (w/ 1 year warranty) are still popping up for $450.00 ~ $480.00 or thereabouts.

    Another firearm to look at would be that one by SKYE.

    I probably buy one of those over a Hi~Point

    If you want a 9mm for plinking and target a ruger would be a good choice. And i used to have a feg clone of a browning high power. Cheap and plenty accurate. If any auto is a choice a good ruger 22 is another good choice. Good luck in your quest.

    Cheap Gunfun

    Just today I bought a new 9mm RUGER P89DC. I belive it will be a good piece to throw in the old fishing truck & haul around in the outdoors. Put 100 rounds of 115gr.FMJ INDEPENDENCE ammo through it allready. It don't feel too bad. Think I'll take it out tomorrow eve. & try something heavier in it.

    Go with the 9mm for cheap ammo. For the gun look at used guns like a Ruger, Older S & W 9mm (model 39), or a Taurus.

    I don't own one but the price on the Bersa .380 coupled with a ton of rave reviews may not be a bad cheap gun. Ammo will run you a bit more than good ol' 9mm, though.

    Me personally, I'm considering the new Kel-Tec PF9. Small and easy to conceal and it's supposed to combine the best of the p11 and p3at, better trigger etc and only about $300.
    I've heard the Kel-Tecs are pretty decent. I'm considering it to replace my Makarov and the 9mm ammo is about the cheapest around.
    I love my .45 but it gets expensive to shoot alot of ammo out of it.

    If anyone else has any other opinions on the Kel-Tecs please let me know.

    I am going to start looking for one of the Ruger P95's. I think I will go to my range first to see if they have one I can rent to try first.
