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).
I the reason I mention the Jennings, Bryco, Jimenez, Raven, whatever "ring of fire" gun is to warn people to avoid them.
If you don't mention it to newbies then they won't know its a potential problem!
