Ok, there are a bunch of guns locally that are in the $350-400 range, that are old surplus or crap made guns, or are a Taurus or Bersa or Rugers. LISTEN-You can get a used Glock, Beretta or Springfield or Rock Island 1911 in the same caliber for the same price. CHECK AROUND before you buy. Check AR15.com, gunbroker.com, glocktalk.com and everywhere else you think to look. If you are a newb, especially, please don't spend $400 on a used taurus or star or surplus gun. They are fine guns, but you can get a much better gun, made out of better materials, by looking around a bit. And having a gun shipped to you is not a hassle at all, you just let your FFL know to send their info to the FFL or individual who will be shipping it, you pay the seller, they ship it, you pick it up at your FFL. FOR INSTANCE there are used Beretta 96d Centurions on ar15.com for $299 delivered. Seller is 44mag.
