Default Budget Handgun Manufacturers

Which are generally accepted as safe, reliable, accurate.

I personally wouldnt trust my life to a cheap cc handgun but which would you guys feel ok selling to a customer on a tight budget (understandable) or a foolishly cheap customer.

Which for cc - Which for range time.

Semi or Revolvers.

I see this as a chance to bring to light the good, bad and the ugly of handguns under $350.

Hi-point, Jennings, Bryco, Kel-Tec, Taurus, Bersa, Diamondback, Tristar, Heritage, North American Arms, Charter Arms, etc.

Warning Will Robinson, It's a trap!

Do not engage!

Be honest with your customers and have them buy the best quality their budget allows.

I'd save my money and buy something higher quality than any of those manufacturers make.

Revolvers are not that hard to make reliable
taurus makes some pretty reliable revolvers.

I have a taurus snubbie and the lock up is tighter than on my big domestic revolvers.

It feels flimsier than them but then its a snubbie not intended for lots of shooting sessions.
