I'd hold off on that one for a while. The real world buzz on this brand new gun has not been good, to this point.
I have seen this "buzz" as well .....

Maybe a first time buyer might do well to avoid being an "early adopter" ....

The Ruger sR9c is a well proven platform, and well within the OP's budget.

A good S&W or Colt 357 or 38, you won't go wrong.

Saw two MP Shields in the gun store last week. $419 was the price. Don't own one, but I did get to shoot one. Fine little weapon for range or carry.

Glock 26..used..great carry gun. Add G19 mag and Xgrip sleeve and you now have a fun range gun with a full sized grip... IMO.

Take your pick, use the leftover for ammo.

Take a look at what CDNN Investments has on their website. There should be plenty of options that are within your budget, one I saw the other day was a Sig 220 (45acp) for less than $500. That wasn't the only good deal on there.

cz75 p-01 9mm, Glock 19, S&W 6906, Ruger sr9c. You got plenty of choices at that price if considering used as well. Almost forgot, Sig SP2022, used p225.

One semi-auto?

Everybody needs at least one 1911, even if it's not what you would carry. If I were thinking SHTF or defense, I might go with a Glock, but otherwise I love the 1911.

Plenty of new options within your budget. I can echo what a few of the gentleman above said about the Remington R-51....I have not heard good things.

We sell the Ruger SR9 and SR40 for $400.00 for example. Smith & Wesson SD9VE and SD40VE $315.00

That's just a few examples, but you may be pleasantly surprised by the number of reliable firearms you can find within your price range.
