The worst guns I ever shot was a Intratec TEC-DC9 and a Lorcin 380. Both owned by a friend and both jam-o-matic pieces of junk. You could never cycle more then two rounds in row without something going wrong. Worst gun I've owned was a Raven Arms .25 auto given to me by my Wife's Uncle. It would fire and cycle just fine but made like crap.

S&W M&P40c. The only firearm I ever bought, shot, and traded in less than 2 weeks.

My buddy has the carbine version. Its a tack driver with iron sights. He has had 0 issues with it. Maybe he is lucky.

I had a LC9 that I couldn’t get rid of fast enough, trigger was crap, rattled like a toy, and did not shoot straight at all. I also found it more offensive in the recoil department than my G27, might have been the thin hard to handle grip.

I shot a buddies .40 S&W Taurus. Don't remember the name but it was G19 sized and had this stiff and ridiculously long trigger pull. Couldn't shoot it worth a damn. Got through two magazines and told my buddy he should sell it...

Taurus for me also. It was a Judge with I believe a 3" barrel. The Winchester PDX shotshells wouldn't go through 1/2 inch of phone booke, and the pattern was roughly 14 inches wide at about 7 yards range.

The action felt like junk, the double action pull was stiff then suddenly eased up a lot making for a very hard time aiming. Single action wasn't too bad.

It also wouldn't fully lock up before the hammer fell. What a piece of trash. After trying it I'll never buy a Taurus.

Worst gun i ever shot?

Taurus. Two of 'em: PT709 and Millinium PRO .45acp. I personally know FFL dealers in Arizona who will not stock Taurus handguns.

I had a gen 2 G19 that I bought new in '97. It jammed about 50% of every magazine. Traded it a few days later and bought a Beretta 96FS. That 96 had about a 30lb trigger pull. That was my short run of crappy guns.

I don't know how I missed this the first time around.

Most of that would have to do with the ammunition and your expectations not the gun. I could tell you that a rifled barrel that short will sling a wide pattern. I could also tell you that the .410 is no powerhouse. Pretty much a "No S*** Sherlock" kinda thing.

"It also wouldn't fully lock up before the hammer fell. What a piece of trash. After trying it I'll never buy a Taurus"

Oh no! my Colt Python, and everyone I have handled didn't either. What pieces of trash they must be.

Buddy of mine who likes to torture himself by buying crap guns has a Sigma and a Hi-Point .40. Both of those are about a tie for the worst guns I have ever shot.

Haven't owned any bad/terrible guns. I don't buy junk.

Wow.....Really...these guns are absolute hard-hitting gems...Sad to say you had one that wouldn't run...I've never seen one or shot one that wasn't 100% reliable and IMO one of the best full-size 10mm's ever produced.

Back in the day it was my Dad's Stevens Visible Loader slide action .22 rifle. It would not load under any circumstance. We christened it "Miserable Loader".

Hmmm. My buddy has one and the damn things drives nails. Probably hit or miss on those old rifles.

Springfield Model 87A .22 semi auto rifle. It was a jamming machine, generally FTF but occasionally FTE just to keep it interesting. It belonged to my father, and I think it was either stolen or destroyed in a fire.

A Remington Model 597. Sold a good running Ruger 10/22 to get it. POS even after sending it back to the factory.

Fast forward. Got a special edition Ruger 10/22 a number of years ago to encourage my wife to shoot more. Didn't work. Not particularly reliable, gritty trigger.

Sold it and got another 597 a year ago. This specimen has been wonderful, completely reliable, accurate, loads of fun to shoot. Don

I had a G20, completely reliable but with CCI Blazer. Bought it to shoot hot stuff like Double Tap, not snoozing ammo like Blazer. Glock took a look at it, test fired it with Blazer and sent it back, still jammed repeatedly with Double Tap. Don

The worst gun I ever shot was over 70 years ago. A friend that lived on a farm had cut down the stock and barrel on a single shot .410 shotgun, so it was about 14 inches long and had a grip like an old Flintlock.

It kicked so bad I had to hold the barrel down with one hand to keep from hitting my head.

My father was experienced with pistols and he showed us how to hold it. It creased his forehead when he shot it.

Horrible, horrible experience.

PISTOL: (Not Owned) I forget if it was the Walther P990 or the Smith and Wesson P99. They were the same gun under different names. Not very good.

Rifle: (Owned) WASR-10 AK 47 such crap. Bought cheap under Bush, sold high under Obama. That was the only good thing about it!
