    Nope. In this movie a lovely rich southern gal buys a nickel jennings 380 off a guy to kill an ex-cia agent. They show the jennings name up close for a long time. Not sure why they'd show this POS weapon on supposedly such a rich and classly lady.

    Would that be Bad Company, starring Laurence Fishburne and Ellen Barkin?

    <ding ding ding ding ding ding > The winner is Jeff. Bad Company it is. Was on the other night and though I had seen it before the fact they used the jennings was odd (I guess they wanted a chromed gun). I also believe Lawence was using a Ruger P90 in the final scene.

    "Was on the other night and though I had seen it before the fact they used the jennings was odd (I guess they wanted a chromed gun)."

    Maybe it was an inside joke or foreshadowing or something... "Here, let's have the gun runner take advantage of Ellen by selling her a real POS at a HEAVY price... at least the gun nuts in the audience will get it, and we dojn't have to spring for a pricey prop...."

    Wow in real life you could probably buy 20 jennings for the same price. I guess I missed that movie. Is it worth the $2.50 to rent it?

    Try 200. Last I saw a dealer that was carrying them, they were $100 each. Not many dealers want to carry them around here. They do nothing but generate complaints and ATF traces.
