The only thing that comes to mind are some of the OLD H&R or Iver Johnson revolvers, but even they are around $125 to $150. Then you got the shipping & transfer fee... I don't think it is happening for $100.

I would recommend getting one of the used S&W 915 police trades out there. You can get one for right around $250 when all is said and done...AND you'll have a quality weapon. They don't call 'em the poor-man's Sig (one of several make/models that are referred to as such) for nothing...

Just got a new catalog in the mail from CDNN. Nothing at the $100 price point, but some "real" guns that are shootable if you acn bump the budget a bit. Staying under $300:

Taurus M85 in .38 Special -- $289 stainless, $279 blued

Taurus .327 Magnum -- $249 stainless, $229 DuoTone (blue frame, stsinless cylinder)

Taurus 651 "CIA" -- .357 Magnum, stainless $299

Taurus PT22 or PT25 -- $189

Taurus PT138 Millenium Pro (.380) -- $289 DuoTone, $279 black

Kel-Tec P-II 9mm -- $229

Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm -- $229

Kel-Tec P-3AT (.380) -- $209

They have a few others for under $300, too, but (to continue flogging the poor, dead horse) I just don't think you'll find much that's shootable for $100 or under.

Almost forgot -- there's also the Armscor M200/M206 series, which should be selling for between $200 and $250. Discussed here: http://thefiringline.com/forums/show...hlight=armscor

Not Doable IMO

I am not adding much to what others haven't already posted (nothing for <$100 new and even used it's a massive stretch). The Hi Point is a great rec. for the gun/value category and would be my personal pick. However, for $126 OTD you can get (debatably the best "value" mouse-gun" available) a Phoenix HP25A in.25ACP (or HP22lr for a tad more). I have a relatively speaking (I always qualify that when compared to some of you maniacs ) decent gun collection with a little less than a third of that being mouse-guns and my little Phoenix is a cosistent perofrmer with any ammo which is actually more than I can say for some of my more expensive mouse-guns.

Leinad single barrel .410 "derringer"

dont mess with the doubles.

$75-100. I want one.

I second bumping up to $200 though, Naa's, Taurus PT series, hi-points, old beat up pocket berretas, old not so beat up AMT backups, middle quality .22 revolvers up the whazoo.

A taurus PT-25 PLY will probably be my next pistol purchase. A metal .22 might serve you better. Or vice versa.

The Nagant revolver is a no brainer too.

Good thread.

I have seen a used 9mm Hi-point selling for $99 at the pawn shop. You can get a new Hi-point .45 acp new for $150 +/- it is bulky, ugly and cheap but it shoots good.

I have not seen any other than the Nagant for under $100. Though I have seen a couple of H&R top break models in .32 S&W Long, and .38 S&W for around $159. Most are decent shape, and shot very little. They make decent once in a blue moon at the range guns.

The older Saturday Night Specials, usually in .25 Auto. Some times I see one in .22 LR. Those are usually $75-$150. The Mosin revolvers are uncommon here, seen one at a pawn shop for $150 here. The H&R .32s are around $100-$150. My dad bought one for $125 once, most inaccurate gun in existence. A used Hi Point is pointless, everytime I see them used people want new price for them. I do have an RG .22 LR and I love it. I got it in well used condition, and have shot it a few hundred times. No problems of any kind, accurate too. Lorcins are decent too, I've heard quality is hit and miss. My dad traded $20 worth of chickens for one, nice little .380.

I saw a "nice" for lack of a better word, RG-22, revolver, at my LGS during the summer. It looked unfired. I had wanted one back when I was younger, because it was cheap and I could imagine being able to afford it. Even then I was under no illusion that it was "as good as" anything else, but it was better than nothing. They were $29.95 back then, but I never had $29.95. The LGS was asking $79.95 for the one they had. I could have probably gotten it for $50.00.

I was tempted, mostly just for grins and giggles, but it didn't have the box and papers so I passed on it.

As a former NJ resident, I know the pain of one hand gun a month, Firearms ID card, pistol permit madness. I also know that anything under $100 each is suitable for a non-shootable collection, a paperweight, etc.

I used to save my money towards an end goal, say $600, and halfway to three quarters there, apply for a permit or three or five. Before the one a month lunacy of course. In the long run, quality pays for itself. My Rugers, Smiths and the like were better designed and executed machines than any $100 throwaway.

Get out while you can!

I also think you need to bump it up a little. I bought a slightly used but like new Hi-Point C9 for $125 and a new Phoenix HP-22A for $150 (the only one I cold find. Several shops said they sold them for $129 but none of them had had one for months due to backordes).

The Raven is usually under $100. It is reliable and fun. It was one of the guns that gave the Saturday Night Special it's name.



The Phoenix Arms HP22a is also under $100 used. It's also a fun plinker in .22LR and comes with a great warrantee. Many good threads on this cheap gem. If it's cheap you want, it's cheap you get!

NJ gun laws are quite capable of causing head explosions. If you have a minute watch this video to give you a better idea.

Were I limited to a small number of guns to purchase, they'd be good ones..... I'd get the money together first, then get the permits.

Time being money, I can't see the angle in doing paperwork for a Lorcin/RG/pot metal PoC .....

Go on Gun Broker. Put "pistol" in advanced search. Filter out No reserves and PUT IN $50 TO $100 for a price range. This will show you what there is. Warning read about them because some may not function.

Heck, I think even a Keltec 9mm, model PF9 or a P11 will cost you about $259 before taxes. Both are handy little guns though. And they're worth the money, I think.

Yeah--They're 30% more now NIB and still well worth it IMO. For $130 you get arguably the best "cheap" no-frills plinker, just plain no-business straight "fun-gun" on the market. Plus, for pennies a shot to boot. I say anyone looking for something within those defined parameters should add one to their collection.

*Edited: I overlooked larryh1108's post above that I essentially repeated .
