    I vote Bryco/Jennings. If you didn't kill who you were pointing at, there was a good chance the gun would kill you from some inherant flaw.

    While I agree Bryco/Jenning is bad, I think RG was even worse!

    Lorcin/Davis. Wasn't the owner the one who owned an airplane, a P38 Mustang copy, called "The Saturday Night Special?" Proof of what an idiot he was.

    Glock......ka-boom. :p

    Then Jennings
  7. Now Shooter, be nice to us Glockies. ;) By the way, when ya gonna set up that Glock Forum? Ya know, you could always move the 1911 Forum in under Curios and Relics where it belongs, and then we could take over their space. :D :rolleyes:

    I voted for Charter, but limit that to those made in the last five years or so. The old ones were pretty decent. Another candidate to consider might be Raven.

    Various manufacturers have produced some real turkeys out of pot metal and old beer cans chewed to shape by demented beavers. They are labeled 'Saturday Night Specials'. For some folks on a very limited budget, this is the best they can afford. These folks have just as much a right and need for personal protecting as you or George W. If you have a problem with them owning and using these sorry examples of the gun maker’s craft, set up some sort of grants program to help them buy something you find acceptable.

    Don't forget Llama. From personal experience the IX-C was the biggest piece of bull-**** that ever hit the street!

    Why is Charter one of the choices?

    Tie for A and C

    Why is Charter even in the poll?

    Henry:

    There are many of your fellow gunners here who feel that Charter's quality has fallen off sharply in the past five to seven years. Thus, I included them.

    Charter is not even the same grade ! I have a raven ,now that's a piece of
    junk that cost me $50 in 1979 and I bet I could find a sucker who would
    give me a $100 but commone sense will not allow me to sell this piece to
    anyone.I have a charter bulldog 44spl made in 70's which is a nice pistol for the money.Why it's in Saturday night special catogory is beyond me.I can
    only guess someone had a new one that went bad.

    Charter Arms quality fluctuated over the years. Some years were good and some years were horrible. If i remember right it went through several changes in ownership...and several time periods where it was not in business at all.

    Me and a buddy of mine were shooting a jennings 9mm and the damn thing blew up! Literally blew a hole in the side of the pistol, bottom of the slide. I couldn't believe my eyes! He had another one that he took apart, filled with lead, plugged the barrel and painted the tip orange...now it's a toy...

    Jennings. I had a J-22 years ago that was my very first pistol. Initially it worked great but not long thereafter it began to fail to feed, fire and eject.
    It got to the point where it would only fire about once out of every five pulls of the trigger. Needless to say, I got rid of it.

    Gotta be a Taurus I owned. Looked just like a copy of a S&W Model 10 in 38 special. On the second cylinder of plain-jane 38 specials (not +p), the frame cracked !! The crack started at the rear of the hammer, down the side thru the frame assemblly screw hole and stopped above the trigger guard. A pot metal piece of junk. The other crappy junk as bad as Taurus had to be RG. Now that they are burning American flags down in south america and showing it on TV .... I'm definitely staying away from south american products .... especially Taurus!!!!. At least Charter arms is made by hard working americans, trying to feed american families with american wages. I owned a new CA bulldog and it was a fine weapon .....
