As for a name I would say that Berretta is one of the better brands however be careful with the model you choose.
Ah, Ok. Yes, Im sure you have put MANY more rounds down the barrel, then.
In my experience, most semi autos wont fire if pressure is put on the barrel. It may depend on how much from one brand to the other.
