My first thought would be a used handgun manufactured the year they were born,
I wouldn't mind a used revolver at all,,,
In fact I just went to a very large gun-show,,,
All of the DA/SA revolvers (in .22) that I could find,,,
Were so over-priced that I almost embarrassed myself laughing.
It seems it's not cost effective to buy used,,,
Not when S&W Model 34's, 63's, and 18's are starting at $600.00 and more.
I can't make myself buy a used semi-auto,,,
I simply don't know the mechanism well enough to evaluate one.
So for semi's,,,
It's new or nothing for me.
