Agreed. I bought a J22 several years ago for $50 and I was pissed that I spent that much money on it. After 3 - 4 trips out to the woods to shoot the thing, I gave up. I ended up trashing it.

I'd love to be able to laugh at that line, but we both know it's too damn true to be funny. If litigation isn't the biggest indoor sport in this country it's certainly in the top three.

As for Jennings/Bryco/Jimenez/Mattel/Popeil/whatever, I've never trusted a gun that appeared to be made of glazing putty.

I was made a believer as to their being a POS after seeing two Jennings with their slide ends, at the barrel bushing, broken off. After seeing that I have no desire to own one.

I have a Bryco 380. I bought it about 25 years ago. I think it's made out of pot metal. It's a real jam-o-matic. Over the years I was hoping to find one of those gun buy back programs so I could get something for this worthless POS.

Hell, I'd be happy with a $50 gift certificate from Wal-Mart in exchange for it......

I've owned plenty of J-22's made by the various Calwsco, Bryco and Jennings names. I've never had a problem. Just remember Glocks. We all know they're safe, but just because one football player or DEA shoots himself, the lawsuits are abound.

Now reliability, that's another problem! They cost 50 bucks for a reason!
