The campaign against “Saturday Night Specials” that drove Lorcin and others out of business took low priced pistols away from folks in poor ares who needed them for protection from the vermin in their neighborhoods.

Most guns used in crime are stolen and dirt bags don’t legally by guns for their activities. Almost all the low priced handguns were legally bought for personal protection. A $ 1,100 Kimber is out of the price range for many folks.

I once had a saturday night special .22 pistol. I swear you could shoot at a 55 gallon barrel from 10 feet and you might hit and you might not.
