    There are several quality 9mm pistols.
    My personal favorite is the Bersa Thunder HiCapacity 9mmPro.


    From other sources.

    Stoeger 8000 cougar, and most any CZ are said to be great guns.

    The Cheapest I think is a HiPoint 9mm. They are big, clunky, ugly, heavy. BUT! if you bear though the 500 round break in period they are dependable guns. With a 100% unconditional warranty.

    I just don't much care for single stack pistols. Nothing wrong with them except the capacity.

    I would love to get one of the new Bersa BP9CCs when they come out, Poly 9mm for CCW.

    But it is a single stack and only holds 7+1, at my FFL I can get a G19 which is 15+1 for about 50 more that this is slated for and the Glock mags cost about half as much as the Bersa mags.
    Having said that, Bersa pistols are very good low dollar guns, they come with two mags.

    Look a little on the net. You can find Sig Pro 2022 for around $400. It is a verrrrrrry good gun for the money.

    I second Freedom's choice. Cheap price but not a cheap gun. Can't beat that combo.
    Takes the back seat to none!

    I am a fan of the Kel-Tec P-11. Under $300. 10+1 with 12+1 potential Bit small for a nice easy range gun, but very nice for carry.

    those are nice guns, but i'm not even looking for best bang for the buck gun, i straight up just wanted a cheap gun, as i'm trying to save up for a Smith and Wesson 500

    just got back from 3 different gun shops, i ended up buying a HI-POINT 380 for $120 here's a pic from google http://www.impactguns.com/store/752334003805.html

    Welp, you got it. HP I think is as cheap as you can get. 380 ammo is going to eat you alive though.
    Just remember, 500 minimum brake in on it. If after that it is acting goofy, go here

    What Freedom is trying to say is that you bought a .380 pistol not a 9mm, as you originally posted, and that .380 ammo is hard to find and expensive compared to 9mm.

    Also he is telling you that the Hi-point needs to have 500 rounds shot through it for a break in of the gun. Kinda the same thing for automobiles by putting 3000 miles on the new engine and transmission.

    From what I have read around here, and feel free to correct me if I'm incorrect on this. The Hi-Point pistols require around 500 rounds to be broken in, similar to anything new that requires being broken in, and 380 ammo is a little more pricey than 9mm ammo. As I said, I'm new to handguns so feel free to correct me if I'm incorrect on this. This is all from what I've been reading for the past week or so.

    SaltyDog beat me to it. But I was spot on. WOOT!

    i didnt expect to buy a gun today, and yes i did want a 9mm but cheapest 9mm i came across was $239
    i did buy the 380 intstead, i just thought i really couldnt go wrong for $120 as long as it last even a few months i'd be happy ahaha, but i did find out right after i made the purchase that 380 ammo is about $6 more per 50rounds, meh oh well.

    still not sure on what you guys are getting at with the whole 500 round brake in? when you brake in a car, you drive slow, and easy on the clutch for awhile, how do i go about braking in the gun? shoot slow? clean every time i re-load? what, i'm confused.. does it not should accurate for the first 500??

    I believe they mean this, yes, although they may possibly mean some FTEs for the first 500 rounds too (failure to eject).

    I'd just go slow with it, make sure that you keep it properly lubed and all that good stuff. I just googled it and came up with a pretty good article. http://www.brazoscustom.com/magart/0705.htm

    The cost of 380 ammo is normally near twice that of 9mm. At least here in Saint Louis it is.
    380 is almost 19.00 and then after tax it is 20+. 9mm is about ten dollars with tax.
    The brake in period. HiPoint guns have a brake in period. You have to shoot so many rounds through them to be sure they are operating properly. Some HPs brake in well before the 500 rounds and some take the 500 rounds. The C9 I had took 250 rounds and it was good as gold. Some more or less rounds. But HPs have a definite brake in period.
    This too. Often times the magazines need to be broken in. Well say you have a 10 round magazine. But try as you might you can only get 8 rounds in it. This is normal, how you brake the mag in is load the 8 rounds in and let the mag sit for two weeks. Take all the rounds out then load them beck up, try to get the 9th round in. If you can, put the mag back for another two weeks. Remove the rounds again and then try to get ten rounds in it.
    What you are doing is relaxing a stiff spring in the mag, normally once you can get all the rounds in the mag you wont have any more problems.
    But again, if you do, check out the HiPoint forum I post.

    Hi point .380, excellent job getting a cheap gun. Cheap ammo is very hard to find especially in .380. Enjoy the weapon!

    If I had to be cheap, I would look for a used Ruger P series or something used around the $275-$325 mark. And get a 9mm this time.
    You might even get $50 out of your HiPoint towards a trade.

    Good luck!
