What would you guys suggest as a solid, versatile, not-too-expensive handgun? I am ok w/9mm but might prefer .40. I also actually really enjoy shooting revolvers.
My dad has a "Judge" revolver which is fun as hell. Chambered for either .45 Long Colts or .410 shotgun rounds. He likes to take it rabbit hunting chambed with 6 shot .410 rounds. That way, if you're hunting with other people, when you're driving them out of brush (which usually involves you getting in the brush) you don't have a full length shotgun which can be unwieldy in that situation. (.410 rounds don't have a lot of shot, but you only need to hit a rabbit with one or two pieces of shot in the head or vitals to kill it. The range is also usually very short too.)

It was pretty cheap too. My mom, brother and I all went in on it for his 50th birthday present. I think it was around $350 which ain't bad.
