What would be your pick?
    I have many knives that I spent over $400 for.

    This is what I conceal carry:



    I love my Ruger Mark IV Target with T&J Tactical Integral Suppressor, Volquartsen trigger kit and Vortex Venom but that cost a few times $400.



    I might have picked up a used Glock 27 for $400 so I’ll choose that.

    Whoever mentioned the shotgun route was pretty much right on as utility functionality.

    On a hand gun, I would have to shop wise and smart. Most likely go with a .40sw round used GLOCK, SW MP40, or FNS-40. The last 2 could be purchased new for under the $400 price tag. But, my thought process would be that all of the listed firearms above do have the ability to change caliber choice with the use of a conversion barrel to shoot 357SIG ammunition. As an added bonus the .40sw and 357SIG fires from the same magazine.

    If I could have that $400. plus whatever I could get for a Taurus M380, Taurus PT25, and a Beretta Pico, (they all seemed like a good idea at the time...), I might be able to play. As it is, I can't remember the last time I paid under $400. for a hand gun.

    I bet I could find a Rem 870 12 ga. though.

    If we're talking handgun (and not long gun) I'd likely go with an RIA or ATI in 45 or a Canik of one form or another or a Walter (probably a PPS but?) in 9mm, Maybe a Shockwave (I know it's technically not a handgun but still)

    Add a long gun to the mix and I think it would be a Mossberg 500... Or a Savage Axis Bolt Action

    Taurus G3. Mine have been very good, as good as some that cost 5 times as much.
    They may not look as pretty but they have performed without problems.

    $400 bucks can buy lots of decent handguns, but if I'm limited to just one gun on such a budget, I'd try to locate a used Ruger Blackhawk convertible with a .45'' or .357'' groove diameter barrel.

    My first centerfire revolver was a used Blackhawk .45 Colt/Auto convertible. Still have it. With it, I can shoot wax slugs, birdshot, mild cowboy loads and a large variety of very stout loads.

    It'll probably keep it 'til it's next owner takes possession.

    One handgun for life. That means it most likely could serve many uses. Might need it for hunting, home defense, open or concealed carry, and even recreational shooting. With these things in mind, I choose a 6” .357 magnum revolver. And since I already own a S&W 586, with a 6” barrel, I would have to look for a used model under $400. A 6” .357 magnum revolver, in my opinion, is just to hard to pass up for versatility.
    The only drawback would be the inconvenience of concealed carry. But it can be done.

    I would have to go with a 1911, lots of parts available. Good quality guns available in the $400 range. My next choice would be the Taurus PT92 for the same reasons as the 1911.

    You don't get a lot of choice for $400 if your talking about a new gun. My choice would be the Charter Arms Bulldog .44 Special.
