My cousin knows that I am well versed in handguns and 3 or 4 years ago asked me to recommend a 9mm pistol that would be small enough for everyday carry, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive.
I recommended three types from the cheapest I would trust with increasing expense. The first was a Kel-tec PF-9 9mm for around $300, the second was a Taurus PT111 for between $350 and $400, and the last was a Glock 19 or 26 for around $500. He didn't want to spend more than $500.
The prices are from a local store in my area.
Two days later he said that I was totally wrong he got a 9mm for $140. He was bragging. I said "its a Jennings isn't it."
He said a "Bryco Model 59." I simply responded same thing, and have fun while it lasts.
Two weeks later he set me this image:
He said he took it shooting and after 18 rounds this happened.
I re-recommended the same three guns and said listen to me this time.
He did and now owns a Taurus Pt-111 and a Ruger SR9c (that he just bought).
What you should know is that the Jennings, Bryco, Jimenez, Raven, or whatever name are all the same "ring of fire" guns.
Here is some more info:
I always warn people to avoid them.
If you don't mention the above names to people looking to buy then they won't know of the potential problem
