    Jennings J-22.  This one sits in the safe, waiting for a gun “buyback”.  I refuse to sell it because someone might actually try to defend themselves with it.

    Why would you be ashamed?  They go bang and put a smile on someone’s face.  It’s all good!

    I ended up with one of those as part of an estate buy.  I took it to the range and the damn thing was 100 reliable.  I gave it to my MIL who basically just wants a nightstand gun and has no intention of ever getting trained.  It makes her sleep better 👍

    Mine was quite reliable until the day it ‘slam-fired’ when I loaded it.  That was the last time it had any live ammo it it,  Not worth looking to fix it, not right to sell it.

    Oh I understand.  I hear that same story all the time.  They will work until they do not, usually spectacular fails...  Like I said, she'll never fire it and in a few years when she moves in with my BIL I'll get it back and I'll probably toss it into the intracoastal when I go over the bridge.

    Same here. I bought one a loooong time ago just because it was so cheap. The damned thing never jammed up no matter what I fed it. It would even cycle cci snake shot, which was actually pretty fun to mess with.

    How is that to shoot? Tough on the trigger finger? Can you shoot a group and conversation distances?

    The truth? I've never shot this pistol. Back around 2008 they were very hard to find and I guess I bought it for the novelty. Been living in the back of the safe ever since. Maybe one of these days I'll fix that.

    A  G&A writer Jan Libourel wrote about the Seacamp years ago and I wanted one badly. The cost was way too rich for a young Soldier and I forgot about it.  Now I wonder if I can find one......

    I don't know about now but in 2016 at the gun store / indoor range where I shoot they had one each .32 & .380. First I'd seen in a gun store since I bought mine although I wasn't actively looking in the meantime. The .32 was $565 and the .380 was $845. When I got home I looked on Gunchoker there were three .32s for $499 and two .380s for $759. Four and one half years have passed since then so Lord knows what the availability and prices are like.
