    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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. I’ll never buy another one.

    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.

    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.
