    For what use?

    For conceal carry: Get a Makarov in 9x18 (order ammo over the net)

    For fun plinking: Get a .22lr semi auto. You may need to spend $190 plus. I recommend Browning Buckmark or Ruger. Find the model that fits you.

    Edited to add: Sorry, I didn't notice "revolver."

    For the new ~$150 range you'll be looking at a hi point. They make a .380, 9mm, .40, .45. I've nevered messed with one, but most people generally give them good marks for an inexpensive pistol. Basically: ugly, heavy, reliable, decent accurancy.

    Thats what comes to mind in that price range. Maybe save up and get something a little nicer down the road. If not I know people who like them.

    Look in the used aisle

    Since you have access to a PC, check out the websites that sell firearms.

    Gunbroker.com
    Auctionarms.com

    You should find plenty of stuff to look at. But you'll probably want to spend a bit more than your $150 budget for a pistol, if you want one that will offer reliability. Stay away from the saturday night specials like jennings and cobra from what I've read here.

    I'm no expert, but I'm am budget conscious (aka...cheap) and I bought Taurus pistols for twice what your wanting to spend and still feel they are at the lower price points for pistols.

    Check out the websites and keep checking on them, you should be able to find what your looking for if your patient.
