For carry and home defense. It's always good to own at least two defensive handguns and both at least as powerful as .38 Special or .380 ACP. One should be at least a .357 Magnum revolver if you hike outdoors. My King Cobra has me covered in black bear and cougar country. A second non-magnum pistol could be both a town carry gun (no bears) and a bathroom gun to boot. Again I need the gun to fit my fanny pack nicely as does my King Cobra. The King Cobra 3" is rather heavy though for city carry. The new 9mm Glocks are sold out. New name-brand revolvers are expensive. I just spent $900 on my new Colt King Cobra 2 months ago. It has to go back to Colt for work. I don't like Smith & Wesson Shield pistols. Somebody here told me to stay away from a gun that fires .380 ACP. Academy has a nice little Glock 42 for $449. .380 ACP FMJ ball ammo is available at Freedom Munitions in a 50-round box at 78 cents per pop. Charter Arms and Taurus revolvers are cheap and look like crap. I'm thinking about cruising my local pawn and gun shops looking for a good preowned smaller-frame pistol or revolver. Snub-nose (2") to 3" barrel for a revolver. Maybe a good preowned Glock in 9mm. I have a hunch that a nice preowned Colt revolver is going to be priced like a new on or worse. Can a real nice mid-frame shorter-barrel Smith, Colt or Ruger revolver (.38 Special, +P or .357) be found for under $400? What can I expect to pay for a mid-frame 9mm Glock in preowned condition?
