I want to be the first to welcome to the forum, terri. From the post, they have moved you toward the take down of your Jennings. It may be a thing of need, self-defense, for your husband to buy this for you-BUT-around here we usually deal in honesty. The truth is that most any Jennings firearm is more likely to fail you, than protect you. If you ever are placed in the position of having to discharge a firearm in defense of yourself, or others, you want it to work-each and EVERY time. Jennings firearms DO NOT have a great track record of this happening. Stick around, and seek out advise from members of this forum for a solution to a Jennings .380.
