Hey there, I just bought a used Jennings .25 auto with 2 mags. Looks very nice. Do I dare shoot it ?

I did some work for a woman and she told me she had a gun in the house that was her late husbands and she wanted nothing to do with it and asked me if i wanted it...wellllll hell yes,excited wondering what it was . It turned out to be a Titan 25 auto with tons of rounds. Took it out on the range and couldn't hit the paper at 15 yards. What? I was frustrated. It is pretty accurate at 15 - 20 feet thats about it. I have not yet bought any new ammo still have about 20 rounds left. i was thinking it was the ammo cause I know it is not the shooter. I talk to the local gun shop owner and he say they really are just hallway guns very close range. No instant man stopper in some cases, still a deadly little pistol If necessary.

I have a Titan 25 in my collection I have never fired at any distance but works every time and at 20' groups pretty good. Just another of my 25's I like that caliber I can't tell you why but always have.

well, it looks like SNS guns are just not on many lists anymore. With some older folks that have problems with their hands and can't rack slides or a very recoil sensitive, a little .25 may be the only thing they can handle. I'm having to go that route for my wife. Granma can't shoot my .38, recoil hurts, and she can't rack the slide on my .380. A target .22 I've got she don't like cause it's 'too big and long' and she can't rack the slide on it either. Ruger and S&W .22 revolvers have heavy DA triggers, n.g. either.
So I'm looking at a Beretta mod21 .25acp with the tip up barrel. Once the hammer is cocked, it's single action and low recoil for the rest of the mag.
Maybe not the best SD pistol, but what the heck, with FMJ the penetration is good as any. With some practice, bet she can hit a BG enough to change his mind.
Cheers, and don't count the SNS out.

My first firearm acquisition was a Hi-Point C9. I got a good deal on it from a friend. I still own it, but I don't shoot it as much anymore. Nice to have an inexpensive pistol to keep around for plinking.

HPs have a heck of a lot better reputation then Jennings does.

Hi Points may be cheap and ugly, but they work much better than people give em credit for. They are much better than the "ring of fire" junk. And the best no BS warranty in the buisness.

I have been owning and handling and shooting and buying/selling/trading guns for 60 years. I have encountered most types and brands of rifles, pistols, and revolvers. The absolute worst, most jammomatic, least reliable, sorriest excuse for a simi automatic pistol was a Jennings .22. Nothing else in my memory even comes close to being that lousy of a gun. even when it would cycle and fire it was terribly, and inconsistently inaccurate. No 2 rounds would go the same direction. If the muzzle of the gun is not touching the target you are gonna miss it.

Cheap, ugly, RELIABLE, and much better stopping power than a Glock if you have to use it for a club! The 3 1/2 inch barrel HiPoint 9mm weighs 9 oz more than the 3 1/2 barrel G26.

Calling Jennings crap is being unfair to crap.
