    In reading through this thread i find it hard to believe that there have not been more complaints about the DB9. (or maybe i am the only one dumb enough to buy one) It would FTF at least 1x a mag. Paid for it to be shipped back to Diamondback and they replaced the entire frame. Now the FTF is only 1x every couple of magazines.

    Mine is a ruger lc9. Worst piece of s$&@ I've ever owned. 1-2 jams per mag, front sight was off center in the dovetail, worst trigger I've ever tried, mag release button would hang up causing the mag to get scraped when it would be inserted or removed. This gun was so bad that ill never buy another ruger EVER!

    S&W 1006. Heavy, unreliable, and not that accurate.

    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.



    "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."



    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.
