While I was in the gun shop yesterday to pick up my new C9, I noticed that they had some JA9's and some 380's by Jimenez for around $30 more. I asked about them because I had read some pretty bad stuff on the net about this company, I think it use to be Jennings before they went bankrupt. The guy handling my deal said it wasn't near the gun a HP is, he said they had sold 100's of HP's and got no more complaints than with the S&W's and Glock's. The handgun bug has bitten me and I travel with my job, I was in 3 gun shops Thursday !!! I asked 2 guys what would be a good lower priced gun for my wife to keep in the bedside table when I'm on the road and they both said "Get her a Hi Point". I then asked which model and one said with small hands a 9mm and the other said a .45, he preferred throwing a big chunk of lead at a intruder !!! Being I had just purchased the 45, I went with the C9 and I'll decide after she fires them which will travel with me and which stays in the bed side table for her.
