    I want a gun. I have one....357 magnum. Revolver. But I want another one. Not with a clip cuz i hear they jam a lot? Nothing huge. Something smallish. 22 is ok cuz I have ammo for it.
    So what is the best gun to get that isnt too expensive? Middle range in price. Reliable. Easy to handle, not huge.

    I'd get a lightweight 5 shot .38 Smith and Wesson that fits in a purse.

    North American Arms

    If I were you, I'd get a semi-auto in the .380 range.

    I like that 38...but I dont like the price at all. The 22 is more within my budget. But Id rather the 38. :(

    Then again...the 22 looks pretty damn good to fit my hand and tender fingerjoints.

    Try one of these:

    Kel-Tec P-3AT, The Ideal Pocket Gun

    You can usually get them for $250 or less. They do have a kick to them and I'm not too fond of the trigger, but they are easy to conceal and usually reliable if you clean them after each trip to the range (which you should do anyway :)).

    The 22 doesn't have any stopping power. If you're looking to stop a person, as in a home invasion? It all depends on what you want the weapon to be able to actually do.
