Some of the pistols on that list really scare me. I would not shoot any of them. The Jennings Bryco Jimenez have been known to blow apart in your hand. They are also known as Jam O Matics. You can find great used pistols in that price range. If the police offer to buy back hand gun for $100 I would not hesitate to bring a Jennings Bryco Jimenez to them. Please do your self a favor get a reliable firearm and not risk your hand or eyesight.This thread is for the people on this forum that may not have hardly any money to spare for buying a pistol. A growing number of people these days cannot save enough money to purchase a nice, main-stream weapon like the Glock, Ruger, Kimber, Beretta, Smith and Wesson, etc., you will see on the market.
I am in no way saying these pistols are anywhere near top of the line, but I am just providing a reference for someone to use to try and research cheaper firearms if they are in a bad financial situation. Pretty much all of these firearms you will see are under 200 dollars.
In the world of defense, it's better to have something than nothing.
Please no flaming, and keep all posts related to the topic and informative/helpful to people who may need help with purchasing a cheap firearm.
Cobra Industries .380 caliber ($125.00 - $150.00)
Jimenez .380 Caliber ($100.00 - $130.00)
Jennings/Bryco .380 Caliber ($100.00-$150.00)
Hi-Point .380 Caliber ($90.00-$120.00)
Keep in mind that prices will vary depending on your specific area. I just used the caliber .380 as a basic reference. Most of these pistols may be purchased in different calibers ranging from .22 Long Rifle up to 9mm Luger.
Remember, the quality of these pistols vary. These pistols are not meant to be shot excessively. They are meant for very basic personal defense against harm.
