I have a Jennings J22 also, left to me from my father in law. I cleaned it and polished the feed ramp several times.. It shoots pretty good now, however it will only feed CCI min mags consistently. It is a pot metal piece of junk but I like it!!! I also have a Beretta 950-C 22 short. It will only eject Winchester super x ammo. It was made in Italy so it is pre1968 ( was banned for import in 68). Fun little mouse gun to shoot.. To be fair to the cheep pistols, I have a Kimber CDP II custom shop.. It will only shoot Speer Lawman or gold Dots . All other ammo- federal, Win white box will produce an occasional stove pipe, or won't eject the shell casing.. I sent it back to Kimber but it still does the same crap..

A H&R sportsman . man of a POS . 1st time out with it I loaded it , pointed at the ground looking for a target , pulled the hammer back and let go , well it did not stay back , it fired off grazing my foot . Sold it to a neighbor for 10 bucks and told him it did not like to stay cocked so be careful . He loads it , cocks it and it puts a round into his side door of the garage missing 3 people.
He keeps it in the tool box in the shop now . I wont even touch the pos .

I've had two moments of shame. First, was a Jennings J22. That taught me a valuable lesson about getting what you pay for. If I remember correctly, I traded it back to my LGS for a couple boxes of 44 ammo. The second , was an older S&W 9mm. I don't recall the model, but I think it was a 39 or a 59. I hated that gun with a passion. It would never fire more than 3 or 4 shots without a malfunction of some kind. Traded that back and got my Beretta 92.

RG Industries Model 40.
A .38 snubbie cast iron revolver. Bought it in a pawn shop in 1985 for $110. Found out later that $40 would have been about right. I never fired it, had it a couple of years. It was said that RG 40's were prone to blow up due to intrinsic weakness. It was a toss-up over who would be hurt the worse - the shooter or the shootee.
But it saved my hide once when I drew it to keep from being beaten to a pulp, so it was worth having at the time.

Had a little spanish revolver when I was young, not sure if it was operator error or not,, since it had no caliber stamp on it I had a buddy look at it and tell me it was .22 LR, but when I shot it you could actually see the bullet come out and bounce off of plywood targets. It was crazy, hell I might have been able to throw a damn bullet faster. Wonder if it was a magnum and I was not using the right loads? Either way it made me very nervous shooting it and gave it away.

Worst handgun was the sig 1911-22. I shoot at 25 yrds and I was lucky to hit paper. Traded it in on a buckmark never looked back ...

OMG!
I almost bought one of those from a pawn shop a couple of years ago for $150 because I was looking for a revolver.
So glad I didn't buy it now.

That's surprising?
I have a H&R Sportman 999 that i've had since 1977 when purchased new,while it's not a S&W or Colt,it has been totally reliable and taken countless squirrels and rabbits through the years.

my father has my grandfather's H&R 9 shot 22 pistol with a 6" barrel. i am not sure of the model number, but it isn't a top break, but has a swing out cylinder. it was the pistol my father and grandfather taught my brother and i to shoot with. after my father got the pistol and we moved to the farm, that was the pistol Dad had us use with shotshells to kill rats, mice or snakes in the barn to keep from putting holes in the walls of his barn. my brother and i would use it occasionally to squirrel hunt with. at 10-20 yards, it was deadly on squirrels.

it was as said, no Colt or S&W, but it was a solid and reliable pistol. it was also just plain fun to shoot or hunt with too. that pistol holds a lot of memories for me as it was my first pistol to shoot and it also belonged to my grandfather, and then passed to my father.
