    .25 acp personal thoughts

    On an impulse buy I purchased a .25 acp made by Jennings Bryco for 110.00. It was really small and had a great price. I originally bought it for my wife, but now I want it as a pocket gun. Any thoughts on this arrangement?

    It isn't thought of as a quality firearm. IMHO, you could and should find a more reliable gun if you plan on carrying one.

    If it was me and a tiny semi was on the list... I'd opt for the little Beretta Jet fire .22LR over the .25 and call it a day. I prefer the center fire over the rim fire, but IMO the .22LR has the better performance of the two.

    Did you see the part when it jammed after the first shot?

    Manufacturer is less than reliable.
    Caliber is less than desirable - I would rather have a .22 as was said above, not that I would prefer either.
    If you like it for plinking, its a keeper, but I would be loathe to arm my wife with such a weapon.

    I really can't say what's on my mind about the gun and the caliber without risking an infraction.

    You probably should have asked about Jennings/Bryco/Cobra and a few other gun makes before wasting your money

    I wouldn't beat up on Dripster too bad. After all, its a neat little gun and he only paid $110 on impulse. Its just not a SD gun.

    Regardless of pros and cons regarding the pistol or the round, be sure to check the laws of your state since many don't allow CC under .32 caliber.

    Next time you want to spend $110 and get nothing in return, try some local charities. Its money better spent.

    In Texas you can't qualify for a CHL with anything less than 32 acp,you can carry anything you want as long as you qualify with a semi-auto

    Well, I guess we need clarification from dripster. After all, he said he wanted it as a pocket gun. My first assumption would be that he would want to carry it in his pocket.

    I am known for being rather lenient on firearms and calibers around here, when it comes to self-defense. But I have heard nothing but bad stories from these guns. As has been said before about the .22 and the .25, the caliber is less than desirable but is an order of magnitude better than being unarmed.

    My take, if you plan to use for self defense, is to buy at least 100 rounds of ammo and take it to the range. If it shoots 100% of those rounds without a failure, then I suppose it would be an acceptable self defense gun. A friend of mine has one of these guns (which he does not use for self defense) and he did mention it does not like certain ammo. I suppose that could be said of many guns, but the point is you might need to try several kinds.
