Nobody's being snotty. Just (like you) making alternative suggestions.

Aulos makes a couple of baroque flutes in plastic. One is a Grenser model and the other is a Stanseby Jr. I think the latter is the better flute, but its pitched at A=415hz (which might not matter if you don't intend to play with others). The Grenser is pitched at A=440hz. These are not Irish session instruments, they are baroque flutes, but should match the requirements you outlined fairly well. They cost a few hundred dollars new, and can often be found for close to your target price used.

This is why I suggested Bernolin. I haven't tried the Aulos Stanesby Jr., but I have had the Grenser, my Bernolin (A=415) is better, and I'd expect any Bernolin to be better. And prices are comparable.

With a good embouchure, any flute can be played quietly. I think you should look at a Burns folk flute. They can be pretty loud if you want but it's probably better suited to playing sweetly and quietly than the Copley. However, my Copley plays sweetly and quietly quite well so your mileage may vary.
