I have made my point to him. Anyway, I'll let everyone know how it goes when I shoot it next week. Probably Wednesday.

And be assured, we welcome the range report.

You have heard a lot of negative comments about your gun. You have also told us it is a family purchase. I'm rooting for you to get one of the good ones!

This is what the forum is all about! Ask for free advice and make a decision on the responses. If you don't like the results you have one of two choices to make:
1. Blame yourself for a bad decision, or
2. Ask for your money back!
We wish you luck and safe shooting Iam99x!

Let us know.

The last thing I'd ever do is blame someone else for my mistake.

I know what I'm getting myself into based off of a good bit of research.

I'll take pictures when I get it and post them up for ****s and giggles.

Iam,
Don't take it to heart, the guys here give solid balanced advice. Sounds like you know what you have, if you know anyone expereinced with pistols have them check it out before you fire it. If not the two main things to look at closely is the inside barrel condition and movement of the action. I'm not trying to minimize your ability or the pistol but firing a used pistol for the first time should be done with great caution.

It's not taken to heart at all.

I got the pistol. I'm going to take it to a very good friend of mine who is highly skilled with guns and how they work, so he can assemble and inspect it for me.

I will proceed with great caution haha.

I may put it in a vise and tie a string to the trigger for the first few shots!

I saw some jennings pistols in small calibers at a new gun shop in town. I was wondering what the heck they were and why they were so cheap. Now I know, thanks guys.

I was pretty sure they were junk.

I have the gun. It's assembled, and I plan to shoot it when my time allows. I'll update soon about it.

Lol I know. I have been joking around about that on another forum as well. One guy told me I should put the gun in a vise, and tie a string to the trigger.

Nah, I'm just going to wear some thick gloves, ear plugs, and safety glasses.

I actually spoke with a guy who has the same gun, and it jammed up on him until he started taking special care of it. Once he did, he said it was actually pretty reliable, and a great plinker. Nothing more, though.

I just went and bought a cleaning kit, Rem Oil, and a holster for it. It's all cleaned up, and looks new. Hopefully it will perform well, and not injure anyone or myself.
