    Maverick 88, Mosin-Nagant rifles (only around $100, actually), Nagant revolvers (again, only around $100), Mossberg 500, a large section of your local used gun rack.

    You can find single shot rifles and shotguns, Rossi, Harrington and Richardson, in that price range, also pump shotguns with smoothbore barrels and rifle sights meant for deer slugs sell pretty cheap used, hunters want the rifled barrels now. Military rifles that have been sporterized cheaply are often available, but may be badly worn or unsafe, some are good buys, but you need to know what you are getting.

    There are a number of guns that will fall into your price range, but this discussion will probably be more helpful if you give us an idea of what applications you'd like to use a gun for.

    If you're just starting with firearms a .22LR would be a great place to start. And you'll be able to buy new and have a bit more to choose from.

    Plenty of Taurus revolvers, especially used, fall into that category. That would be my suggestion. some kind of Taurus 38sp. Or a used Mossberg shotgun in 12. Both are fun to shoot and can be used in self defense.

    In terms of long arm milsurps: Mosin-Nagant (91/30s and M44s), Yugo M24/47 and M48 (Mauser actions), Steyr M95, M1916 Spanish Mausers,

    For a bit more (up to about $350) you can throw in a few SKS rifles, Russian-capture K98k, perhaps a Finnish Mosin-Nagant, K31s, Swedish M38 Mausers, etc.

    In terms of milsurp pistols you're looking at Nagant revolvers, most Tokarev variants, CZ-82s, you might be able to find a Makarov as well.

    If you're interested in milsurps, I highly recommend you get a C&R. It'll easily pay for itself after 1-2 firearms. This is by no means a complete list, there's lots of others available but sometimes it's just finding the right deal or even what's available on the market at the moment. Condition also can have a big affect on price...ie condition of the bore, matching part numbers, etc.

    I almost always answer this question the same way; H&R Pardner 20ga.

    I bought a S&W 1905, in 38 Special, for $250.00 not long ago (last month). It had been refinished so it had zero collector value, but is a good solid shooter.

    Truthfully I bought it to get the mid 50's diamond magna grips that were on it. I didn't want the gun but they wouldn't sell just the grips.

    I admit that most M&P/Model 10 type revolvers will be more than that, but you can still find them.

    I see Harrington & Richardson revolvers in that price range too.

    TT-33/ M57's. (7.62X25mm)
    Nagant 1895 Revolvers. (7.62X38Rmm)
    Mosin Nagant M91/30's. (7.62X54Rmm)
    All three are really good guns to own.

    Well used, but mechanically sound, S&W police trade in revolvers can be had at the upper point of that range. .38 spl is cheap to shoot and a good choice for HD.

    Used Ruger MKII's, 22/45's, and Browning Buckmarks show up in that price range. The CZ-82 in 9mm Makarov and Ruger P-95's in 9x19 (Luger, Parabellum, Nato) and occasionally .38 Special revolvers, sometimes even .357's.
    For rifles, if you go rimfire you've got a lot of options even in a new gun. The Mosin Nagant has been mentioned in centerfire and you could also seek out a decent used lever-action for just over $250.

    But if your limited by the budget and want to shoot much, I'd think a Savage MKII or other quality .22LR rifle and the rest of your money spent on ammunition would be a great start.
    FWIW, I shoot rimfires A LOT!

    Polish P-64 Radom, CZ-82, surplus CZ-83, VZ50, Mosin rifles, Nagant revolvers, FEG High Powers, Star 9mm surplus, Used Rossi revolvers, some of the Maks, and Tokarev pistols.

    All of the Hi Point pistols are in that range too. You can also find stuff cheap used sometimes.

    For a little more money, you can get a CZ-75 surplus ($350, or you could) German Walther P1 ($325) or a surplus FN Browning High Power from Israel ($399)

    I should also mention I picked up my Remington 870 with two barrels, box etc. for $280. It was a display model and hadn't been fired.

    If it were me, I'd save up a little more $$, that way you can be a little pickier...

    A good deal of firearms in this price range are going to be used. Used firearms require more scrutiny and inspection prior to purchasing so you need to know what to look for. If you're new to firearms and don't know what to look for, a new or newer firearm may be a safer option for you.

    I would definitely handle one of these before you decide to use it for home defense...

    Was in a pawn shop yesterday and saw an old Springfield pump 20 gage for $125...bluing almost all gone and front bead was beat up, but in good mechanical shape. Something like that would make a good, first purchase for HD, hunting or shooting.
