    Looking for a dirt cheap full size semi auto

    Gotta be reliable, 9mm or bigger, hold 15rd or more, and priced at or less than $350. Cheaper the better but has to go bang each time. Needing a dedicated glove box gun that if got stolen wouldn't be the end of the world. I don't own any sub $500 pistols so I don't know much about "budget" pistols.

    I did get to looking at the FXS-9 and I must say it looks great, seems reliable, and accurate enough. Really think the manual safety is pretty dumb though.

    The smith SD9VE is generally available in your budget. It has a proven track record of reliability, and a reasonable amount of parts available. It would be my #1 choice in a budget gun.

    Second, as the glove box is frequently check when vehicles are burged, and easily broken open, if you actually mean a glove box, please consider other options. The majority of firearms used in street-level crime are stolen. Id rather not impart the personal/civil/moral liability of having my gun stolen.

    Lock boxes that are quick access and secured to the seat rails of a vehicle should at least significantly slow down unwanted access.

    Police trade in, Glock .40 or M&P first gen tend to be the cheapest.

    Beretta APX. CHEAP AF, at least as good or better than any (Glock, CZ, etc). Fully supported by the oldest gun manufacturer on earth. They are around here for the mid $300s.

    Closer to $200 if you do it right. Definitely THE sleeper pistol.

    You're welcome...

    IMHO, the Stoeger STR 9mm checks a lot of boxes and is hard to beat at its price point.

    You can pick up a PSA Dagger (glock clone) for $299. The one i have has been gtg for 1k rounds. Lots of feedback online

    Compatible with glock gen 3 parts. You can get the RMR slide version as low as $299 on sale as well

    Canik and Berretta APX are 2 other good choices

    In my opinion, this is the best deal going right now. It's $200 + sales tax (if applicable) delivered. It's basically a Glock clone with metal magazines. I've purchased this and the compact version. The quality appears to be on par with an actual Glock.
