Most gun shows I have went to you can't buy a really good pistol for 200, unless you go with maybe a keltec 380, but they are closer to 300 new. those gun shows are good but they are usally marked up on the gun prices. you could get a Hi-point new for around that price but I don't recommend that and i am sure alot of people will agree with me. your best bet is a Mom & Pap's pawn shop and I would get a 9mm if it was my first pistol. hope this helps.
