    Turned in my gun today!

    Local city PD was having a turn in your guns for cash campaign today. I turned in my Bryco(Jennings) .380 for $50. I thought that was a great deal for a gun that was a better paper weight than firearm.
    Confidence is the feeling you have before you realize the full measure of the situation.

    Jennings

    I once had a LEO tell me "Nothing says liquor store holdup like a Jennings"

    Actually. I've had one for several years, passed it down through 2 sons and it still shoots great.

    I always liked the style and size of the 380 Bryco. I just wish it wasn't a piece of crap. Its a gun I thought could have had potential if it wasn't designed by a (YOUR DESCRIPTIVE WORD HERE).

    I have no experience with Jennings or Bryco that I know of but Cobra....whew...I had a Cobra Patriot in 9 mil. Biggest piece of (insert word here and its not cake) I ever shot. No matter what ammo I shot through it it would jam up. I even polished the feed ramp and slide mating surfaces, etc...Just a pile of junk. It didnt take real long to scrap up the money for a better gun but int he meantime I had nightmares about it jamming up on me.

    Theres a warehouse of knowledge I don't have yet concerning firearms but if theres one piece I feel like I can give with some degree of knowledge its avoid those things.

    Alex!

    I really don't get the purpose for the buy back. The dirtbags love the throwaway guns for the obvious reasons, so the only ones they get back would've most likely never seen a day of crime anyway.

    Did they thank you and tell you that you are a good, responsible citizen? Did they tell everyone how the streets will be safer now that the evil guns have been turned in? BTW - great way to get rid of crap - good job!

    Yeah I thought the same thing; Oh no, we lost one into the dark side.
    As for the turn-in, I have heard of some rather expensive guns ending up in there. Perhaps some retired elderly spouse or someone unknowingly gives up a rig valued at 2~3k! I sometimes wonder if the sponsors are allowed to pick and choose what they like from these the turn in programs.

    This would be one way to get rid of the Lorcin that I took away from my brother some years back (I traded him a Ruger...friends don't let friends use Lorcins). However, a few months ago, I decided it makes a great paperweight...and I take it with me now and then to the range to demonstrate to a noob why one should not buy a cheap gun...guaranteed to jam within 5 rounds fired.
