Why you should buy a decent gun
This a Lorcin .380 ACP. Notice that the slide has completely split in half. The pistol was reportedly under 200 rounds. Now it is true that any pistol can have catastrophic malfunction, and I've seen plenty of pictures of Glocks and Springfield XDs that have gone ka-boom. But when you think that a gun is a machine designed to harness a small explosion.
And do it a lot. So it really is best to buy a gun you feel that you can trust your life to. It is a lot better to save up another 150 to 250 and buy a mid level used gun like a Ruger, Glock, or even though I don't care for them, a Smith & Wesson.
