Yea but it's from your GD.

It’s worth retaining if just for the keepsake value.

Plus, you did the research and gained the knowledge before shooting.

Due Diligence is exactly that.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Locrin has to be the worst pistol I ever owned. Jenning not far behind. locrin are just not safe to fire.

I think I took more Jennings, mostly .25 cal., pistols from bad guys than any other brand. RG .22 revolvers would be a close second. Those are "Saturday night specials" that give Saturday night specials a bad name.

For evidence purposes, we had to test fire guns we seized to be able to testify in court they were functioning firearms. Fortunately just firing one round was sufficient for that purpose, otherwise we'd have to say no to the functioning part.

Sorry, but you got took.

+1 on the 'bad name' pioneer.

Well, there is an old saying- Good, Cheap, Quick. Pick 2 of the 3.

How do you know if it works? Are you going to take the word from a guy that hasn't even put it together for the sale?
Any gun I own can be returned to service in short order, or I would sell it!
Catch my drift?

IMHO Jennings for $50 is a great deal, for the seller!

How great? Google Jennings 9mm and read.

One comment I found,
Jennings 9mm firing instructions:
1. Load and fire gun
2. Disassemble gun to clear jam
3. Repeat #1
Well, the seller is family so I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get screwed over. No reason why it's disassembled. Maybe for cleaning purposes. I'll check out Google to see what's up.

Well, I'm going to get the pistol, anyway.

I'll let you guys how it goes.

If it craps out on me, I'll just get me a Hi-Point or something.

Thank you all for your input.

I asked for opinions, and got them. Does that mean I have to obey them? No.

Congratulations, you just wasted your time.

If you want a break, get off my thread.

Be an ass elsewhere, sir.
