A buddy of mine came across a "deal" or so he thought. He called me the other night and asked me if I wouldn't mind looking at a .380 he bought from a neighbor for $50. I went over and picked it up from him, at first look all I could see is the right grip panel was broken and it needed new grips. I took it home and started to field strip it cause it was really dirty and noticed that when I attempted to fire it with snap caps it didn't always go off. So I started to research it online to learn more about it. Its a Lorcin L .380, and when I looked at some of the info I could find about it realized this firearm is so dangerous there are alot of stories about them blowing up on people and the company actually went out of business because of lawsuits based upon malfunctioning guns. I at once called my buddy and warned him about this gun and told him to give it back, don't even bother shooting it. I hope I was able to save him from bodily damage.
