    I have used off-brand cast iron in the past, but I only use Lodge now. IMHO, it is the best. When I buy Lodge, I know it's good, with the off-brand you might get a good one and you might not.

    Pistol

    Currently, my only pistol is a Ruger P94 that I've had since '95. Knock on wood, it has never jammed or given me any problems and I have fired a LOT of rounds through it.
