Bryco was one of the Ring of Fire manufacturers.
The "Ring of Fire" was the area where all the "Saturday Night Special" companies were located. Of course, all of them made cheap handguns (except Jennings made one model of .22 rifle), that have notoriously shoddy reputations. Some who own the guns say they're not so bad, others say they wouldn't even take one as free (such a statement is asinine IMO). The one you have may not be that bad. The bigger guns made (.32 and .380) didn't have as bad a reputation as the .25s and .22s.
It's actually a neat history behind the Ring of Fire companies and their designs based off each other.
Oh yeah, I think Bryco is now Vulcan Arms (they don't have much better of a reputation, but they are known for their cheap .50 cal)
^ scratch that, Vulcan arms was Hesse, it was compared to Bryco.
