"To make inexpensive guns impossible to get is to say that you're putting a money test on getting a gun. It's racism in its worst form." -- Roy Innis, president of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), 1988

Saturday Night Special is a pejorative or slang term used in the United States for any small, inexpensive handgun. It is sometimes called an SNS in written shorthand.

Raven Pistol

This forum is dedicated to owners of Bryco, Jennings, Lorcin, and Raven brands of firearms.

Bryco Arms was a firearm manufacturing company based at various times in Carson City, Nevada and in Irvine and Costa Mesa, California. The company's most famous product was the Bryco Arms Model 38 semi-automatic pistol, available in both .32 ACP and .380 ACP calibers (also known as the P-38). The company was owned by Janice Jennings.

Jennings was another brand name for the company's products, having been started in 1978 by Bruce Jennings as an earlier incarnation of what became Bryco Arms. It remained a recognizable brand name for Bryco Arms for many years even while Bryco Arms used its own brand name for firearms.

Raven was founded by George Jennings, ironically, in response to restrictions imposed on firearms importers as a result of the 1968 Federal Gun-Control Act. The company sold about 2 million of these .25-caliber guns over a 20 year production run.

Jimenez (also known as JA) is the current incarnation of the same handgun manufacturing company in Costa Mesa, California which started operations in August, 2004. Jimenez Arms is currently searching for a new business location outside of California.
