Default Jennings semi-auto's

I do wish you the best and did not mean any harm in my comments. Just wanted you aware of my knowledge and experience with them.

Thanks, guys. I still haven't had a chance to shoot it. I may go to the firing range tomorrow or something.

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.

Jennings 9mm? - General Handgun Discussion
I was talking to a guy some time back that said they had to do that with Jennings, RG, Bryco, Locrin because they had criminals getting lowered charges or dismissed because their lawyers where arguing that the weapon was not a fully functioning weapon.

I guess they might be worth 50 bucks but I wouldn't want one all the same. Tohe OP I hope yo have good luck with it. Who knows, it might be an OK weapon. I've owned a couple RGs I think I got one for 50 bucks! And I (still) have a FEH Derringer So it's not like I can say much about cheap guns and not to own

I had a Lorcin 380, basically a Jennings today. Once at the indoor range the slide blew off into the range along with a couple more parts and the firing pin and retainer went backwards. The guy in the bay next to me stuck his head around my side and said: "Was that your gun" with a WTF look on his face. Embarrassed, I gathered my parts with the house broom and left. I never shot that gun again.

Default Even the older ones..

Were fussy about the ammo you fed them. I had a 9mm model that worked
great with fmj ball ammo, but it had a hard recoil & was tough to shoot! I
sold mine @ a gunshow to someone that needed a gun that would go "bang
everytime the trigger was pulled", but it was a very uncomphortable gun to
use as a target pistol! Avoid any newer models & buy a nice reliable
mackarov in either .380 or .9mm mackarov! My .380 mac is what I carry year-
round now!

I bought a Bryco Jennings 380 from a "friend" for $50. It was assembled until the first time I cycled it and the firing pin broke off.
I might carry it for self defense against a pd lawsuit. "Well Your Honor, he pulled out his gun, I pulled out my Jennings and then he accidently shot himself while rotflhao. I tried to shoot him but this P-O-S would not fire."
