    I don't know about the David's, but avoid the Jennings unless you are wanting a cheap plinker, or a tacklebox gun. They aren't exactly what you would call a good gun (prone to jamming a lot, and there are stories of them going full auto without warning). If you do get one, don't pay more than $50. What do you want it for?

    might mean Davis Industries?

    the Jennings are cheap made pot metal pistols. pure junk. TWW is being generous in his price point! i wouldn't give $50 for a truck load!

    really don't understand anything you're trying to say. it makes no sense whatsoever. please learn some sentence structure and spelling. it would make it much easier to know what you're trying to say or ask.

    clear pictures would help as well, along with model numbers and a more detailed description of the firearms.

    the Davis is worth about $30-65 depending on condition. the jennings is junk, period. poorly made out of inferior metal. IMO, definately not worth anywhere near $50.

    I have a Jennings J-22. I have had it for quite a while. Maybe 15 or 16 years. It is very picky about ammo. Mine has gone full auto on one type of bulk ammo. Cant remember the brand. Velocitors and Stingers are some what reliable. I would be willing to pay $50 for one in good condition if all I had was $50 and I had no other options. However, I woould trust a.25 over a .22 any day. 25 is a center fire cartridge. It is much less prone to failure than the rim fire. If I were to choose between the two guns you are asking about Iwould go with the derringer. With the Jennings you might get more than two shots before it jams. Or it might jam after the first shot. With the derringer you will get two shots. I would not feel cofortable using either gun for self defense.

    I bet you could finda used High Point for $100 if you really look around. They are not pretty. But they are reialbe good shooters. For $150 you could gest a Rough Riger 22 revolver. If money is an issue buy a rough rider. It costs more for the gun. But you will save a lot on ammo very quickly. .25 auto runs from $10 to $20 for 50 rounds. That is almost 10 times the cost of 22lr.

    Both are low dollar guns. Jennings J-22 sold for $65 when new. I keep one in my fishing tackle box loaded with shot loads. VERY low quality.

    Davis- 25 ACP, about $50-$65 if everything works OK. FWIW, .25 ACP ammo is pretty pricy, and has the stopping power of a rolled up newspaper.
