Best pen for beginner?

Can anyone advise me on a good, inexpensive pen I can buy at a regular stationery store that is suitable for practicing gregg with?  I'm very new to gregg (just working my way thru the simplified manual and on Chapter 9 now).  I'd prefer to not get anything too expensive just yet, but looking for a pen that is better than the ballpoint (BIC-type) pens I have been using.   And I have noticed that different pens I use create different gregg for me.   Still having trouble getting my gregg to flow properly and look like the text (especially the L's!).
