    Cheapest handgun you have shot?

    What is the cheapest handgun you have shot?

    Mine is a Cobra .380



    No the one I shot was not purple but it was the cheapest
    as the retail is around $150.

    The cheapest gun...was a single shot 12 gauge I had as a kid.
    That was around $80

    A Jennings .22lr. They used to cost around $50.00 retail. They also were junk!

    FIE Titan .25 cal. It still setting in my safe. It had been my wife's grandmothers. No one in her family even knew she had it until she had to be moved into an assisted living facility. She grew up in the NW Oklahoma in the late 1800's and from what I understand was a salty old lady in her day. God rest her soul.

    I have a RG-14 (22 cal snub)... a model that has a bit of notariety. I think that in their day, they were even cheaper than the Davis/Lorcin/Raven/Jennings/Cobra/Jiminez......

    It still shoots great too.

    (I also have a ANIB Jiminez JA25 in a drawer)

    Even though I have Kimber, Sig, Ruger, S&W, Beretta and Kel-Tec weapons, I don't smirk at the "less expensive" (a.k.a. Saturday Night Special) guns. One man's "cheap junk" is another man's only affordable self defense tool.

    I have and regularly shoot a Hi Standard Sentinel R -101 that I paid somewhere around $50. new back in the late 1950s. Pretty darn accurate little gun.

    NAA Mini-Revo .22LR

    Friend of mine picked it up used for $125. Not my favorite gun to shoot... surprisingly snappy.

    My first handgun ever was a Hi-Point .40 cal pistol. I bought it the day after I turned 21 and didn't know anything about handguns. It functioned flawlessly through the 200 rounds I shot, although I couldn't shoot it very well. Then I sold it and bought the slightly smaller and yet still big Hi-Point C9. That is how I discovered the 9mm to be one of my favorite pistol rounds. Shortly after I sold it and saved up for a Springfield XD9.

    My first shotgug

    My first shotgun was a 16 ga break barrel, my dad said he paid $25 at a pawn shop for it. It was a GREAT shooter unfortunately when I enlisted my mother decided to sell my weapons while I was in basic training.

    CZ52, cheap as in inexpensive, but a blast to shoot, no pun intended!

    Marlin (I think) lever action, single shot .22 with a 14" barrel. POS......only accurate out to @ 25 feet! At 7 yards it would group about 5"
