[QUOTE=CAD424;6207719]I have a self-imposed $600 limit on handguns and prefer to stay around $400.
That will get you a XD Sub Compact, J Frame .38 or LCR and various pocket autos.
If I was going to spend that much I'd get a S&W .500 just for the fun of it.[/QUOTE]
1. You are just a beginner. Re-evaluate that statement in a year or so.
2. Have you ever shot a .500 S&W Magnum? I have, and I'll tell you it wasn't for the fun of it. That shit hurt.
