    SCCY pistols, what are they all about? I'd never heard of them until today.

    Earlier I was watching last night's recorded episode of "Live PD" and a shady couple said their SCCY 9MM was stolen by home invaders... maybe, but it got me to doing some quick research and all I can find is the manufacturing spin. Based on the looks of the 'victims', I'm guessing this is not a high quality firearm. I'd ask my son, but he's busy at work and being it's Saturday, I don't want to interrupt his focus. I'm not in the market to buy, just curious. Do I put this in the "Jimenez" category or not?

    SCCY firearms is a "spin off" from KelTec. The are right down the street from them in Daytona Florida. When they originally come out they were all stainless. Some folks like them, no they are not a top line company but they sell some guns. DiamondBack was another one but Taurus bought them up (I think)
    None are on my list to have. I did have a KT years back.

    Have you heard of Kel-Tec? The Sccy (originally Skyy and sued by the Vodka Maker) was formed by disgruntled KT executives that made a knock-off of the KT P-11 9mm. They even set up shop mere Miles from the Kel-Tec factory.

    From wikipedia:
    SCCY Industries was formed in 2003 by Joe Roebuck. Originally, the company name was to be Skyy, but after trademark concerns regarding the use of the name by SKYY vodka, the name was changed to SCCY. Since 2010, the company manufactures all firearms in a factory in Daytona Beach, Florida. Prior to 2010, the guns were manufactured in South Daytona, Florida.
    Their early pistols were pure garbage. I hear that they've gotten better.

    Sportsman's guide sells th CPX-2 for about $225. Does that give you an idea of it's quality?

    I think is better than a Jimenez and or a Taurus, I fired one from a guy at the range (he insisted) and it seem OK, is a DAO if I remember correctly, and he stated that he had fired thousands of rounds, but we know how that goes, if you go into the website, they show even lots of different colors and variations.

    My son got a SCYY II and it has been a great gut. Similar to Kel-Tec but has never let him down and for the price he could afford it at the time. His is a metal and not plastic but definitely would not just throw it under the bus. He has had it about 7 years and goes to the range regularly and has never failed him. Just my experience with it. As a side note, I did some research and the SCCY I was problematic and the II had some definite improvements.

    I've looked @ them but nothing I care to own. The LGS proclaims their glory... but does the same for Taurus.

    Most recent reviews I've read go something like this...

    Low price.
    Reliable.
    Heavy long trigger and not so accurate shooting.

    I don't think the SCCY is a gun for those with the coin and/or knowledge to buy what they really want.

    They are budget priced guns and for the most part horrible. When I couldn't sell another brand of gun because of price, I had good luck with them. Come in different colors and was popular with young women.
