What is the "worst" gun you ever owned/shot?
Im glad I usually shot a gun before I buy it so I havent owned any duds. I know some people like this gun but I shot a Ruger LCR and didnt' like the stock trigger on it.

Walther PPK
Have shot three of them and all had hang ups.

Worst gun I ever shot? That's a SIGMA 9mm.

Worst gun I ever owned? Winchester 94 .30-30.

5" Kimber TLE II. Just never ran like it's supposed to, even after a trip back to Yonkers. On the bright side, I got plenty of practice with malfunction drills.

Kahr CW40. Hang up after hang up and failure to lock back on the last round every time

S&W mdl 39-2.

It got the reputation of being a 'jam-o-matic'.
A real POS.

It COULD have been bad magazines. I didn't keep it long enough to find out.
Sold. Bye-bye. Adios. C-ya! (POS!)

1 of 2 Jiminez 380s I've shot. My father picked up one in Florida a few years ago, shot it when he was in town. Great accurate gun no issues. I picked one up for the price of $155 plus $20 to transfer. Had many issues with the striker resetting and really rough trigger. Had a round discharge on me during a hangup and blew up the follower on the magazine so I'm down to one mag. I believe this was due to a striker reset and hangup issue. I still have the brass piece torn apart.

I still have the gun too, but from a safely standpoint its not worth taking to the range. Honestly I'd feel better shooting +Ps in it to make sure everything resets correctly for the next round. Maybe I'll use it down the road as a single shot to test out some loads etc.

6/7 years ago my friend got a Sigma in 40sw and wow the trigger pull was so long, surprised I hit anything.

What was wrong with the 94? Just curious.
A Charter Arms .38 was the heaviest trigger I ever pulled. Didn't keep it long.
Had a Bauer .25 that would fire whenever it felt like it after you pulled the trigger.

Hamilton Burger 12-26-2012 10:03

I had a Colt Officer's ACP Lightweight I couldn't do anything with.

Hands down a para p12-45. Couldn't get through a magazine without a ftf or fte. I also have a pt22 that has been a let down. It runs ok with cci's but is very touchy with anything else.

Boats 12-26-2012 10:26

The worst gun I have ever shot was a Glock 30. Sawed off, bumps hitting the wrong spots all over my fingers, topped off by an mushier than average Glock trigger. I have pulled some decent Glock triggers and this wasn't one of them.

Worst gun I have ever owned was a Mosin-Nagant 91/30. What a total POS.

CMG 12-26-2012 10:42

1980s - AMT Hardballer - poorly executed clone of the 1911 design.

Lorcin 380 and a kahr pm45, CHARTER BULLDOG .44SPL.

smokin762 12-26-2012 10:48

The worst guns I have ever owned were Taurus revolvers. I have never had any luck with them. Either the trigger is too heavy or I have had problems with the cylinder locking up on me. Iíll never buy another one.

Fed Five Oh 12-26-2012 10:51

H&K model VP70.

colin1230 12-26-2012 10:56

This will PO some people! The worst gun I ever owned was a Colt AR-15 in about 1985. Only got the gun because the dude owed me money. Could'nt get used to the clang of the spring in my ear. Turned it made a hundred, never wanted another one. Ruger Ranch Rifle fills the void nicely.

VinnieD 12-26-2012 11:01

Probably the Taurus TCP. I know what they're getting at, but there is really nothing to hold on to on that gun. Even with such a light round I couldn't control the thing at all.

FullClip 12-26-2012 11:03

An AMT .380 Back-Up....didn't keep it long and replaced it with a Colt Mustang Pocket-Lite...:supergrin:

Then traded the Colt away....:upeyes:

CajunBass 12-26-2012 11:08

An old single shot 12 gauge shotgun, with enough drop in the stock to use if for a boomerang if you ran out of shells. The forearm was taped on with friction tape. The finish was early American rust. Thing kicked like a mule.

I must have been about 12. I thought it was the greatest gun in the world at the time. :supergrin:

PeterTheFish 12-26-2012 11:08

HK4 in .380. Terrible trigger and no fun at all to shoot.

NEOH212 12-26-2012 11:12

Taurus PT1911.

Total piece of crap.

Kadetklapp 12-26-2012 11:18

Either a new keltec pf9 that simply was a turd or a used ban-era Bushmaster xm15 that had some serious issues related to headspace.

Webley .38 S&W Revolver. Neat to look at but a real PITA to shoot. Trigger pull was soooo loooooong and gritty. Doggone Brits!
