    Years ago a friend bought one of the first Kel-Tec 9mm guns.
    No one could get through a single mag without FTF, FTE or light primer strike.
    We coined the name Click-Tec for it (Due to the light primer strikes).
    The gun was unceremoniously dumped at the next gun show.

    Hesse H91 & Century CETME: Both H&K 91 copies. Both of them would pattern at about a 6" circle at 25 yards... While I would like a 91 platform, this next time it will be a PTR.

    Bobcat BW5: MP5 clone that liked to jam at least once or twice a magazine. Although I think it was an extractor issue, I sold it off before I learned enough to diagnose and fix it.

    Sig Mosquito: Could not finish a magazine without having some sort of jam issue. Sold it within a week of buying it.

    That was my experience with the Mosquito too. Sold that POS, fully disclosing its faults.

    Taurus Pro Millenium 40. I hated that gun and couldn't hit the side of barn with it.

    My dad had the same problem when he bought one around 5 years ago. Ran fine with CCI Mini Mags but anything else would have multiple failures every mag. If I remember correctly, the users manual actually specifies to only shoot Mini Mags. My dad said bought a .22 so he could shoot a lot of rounds as cheaply as possible so that didn't fly. Totally defeated the purpose for him. He traded it for a Browning Buckmark.

    That's odd, mine shoots great. The worst gun I've ever shot was a .22 cal Bobcat. I couldn't get through a single mag without a malf. Didn't matter what ammo I used either.

    I have heard horror stories about this gun and although not perfect most of them went to the Walther P22 with very ammo related little issues.

    worst gun I ever shot? hi-point, it would dump the mag after every other round

    worst gun I ever owned? I've got an old sears bolt action 12 gauge that my great uncle gave me that has a recall where the bolt could break off and hit you in the eye. yea I've never shot that one.

    The 'worst' firearm I've owned, and by that I mean the one with the most failures was my USP .45 tactical. Factory ammo of all sorts, ftf and stove pipes, factory mags, I gave up and sold it.

    I hold nothing against HK, lemons get past QC of all companies.

    Bought it new in the 1980's, and to this day, I don't think I have ever gotten through a full magazine without a jam.

    Because it floats, it does not even make a good boat anchor.

    Any 1911 or BHP. After all the hype I had heard my entire life, they absolutely did not live up to the hype:yawn:

    But...... I think my wife's old LCP may have been a little bit worse.

    I hated shooting the Kel Tec PF9. Cheap pot metal, horrible recoil, terrible fit and finish. Just garbage.

    I also hated shooting the Ruger LCP

    Both are my Glock 32. It is shaving brass so after a couple mags I will experience FTF's, light primer strikes, etc. I know send it to Glock and get it fixed, just haven't gotten around to it. But I guess I need to get on it since 357sig, and 45GAP are close to the only ammo I can find.

    Have you tried taking a .30 spitzer bullet and using it as a mandrel with some wet 0r dry paper and polishing the mouth of the chamber? breaking the edge has helped with a lot of them through the various incarnations.

    Taurus TCP .380 has the dishonor of being the worst gun I've fired/owned. FTF, FTE etc. Easy to carry concealed but untrustworthy. Btw it's for sale or trade. :)
