    I already asked what everyone's favorite is so I thought I'd ask the opposite.

    What is everyone's least favorite?

    I think mine would be Taurus.
    I find that Taurus makes a lot of marketing guns, gimmicks and clones.
    Just my opinion, no offense to you Taurus lovers.

    Kel-tec

    I had one jammomatic from Kel-Tec. Heard stories about many more. Friend of mine bough Kel-Tec carbine that takes Glock mags. Barrel actually so loose in the receiver that you can move it by hand! I have never seen a gun built that poorly!

    Ya know I can't really think of a brand that I absolutely hate. I mean there is always Hi-Point, but I have never had a problem with mine. I wouldn't buy another, but hey it works fine for a beater if it isn't beaten too bad.

    I'm actually thinking of buying a Hi-Point as a trainer for my family.
    It's one of those "just cause" purchases.
    Don't want them handling one of my more expensive guns.
    Better to let them buy their own.:dunno:

    Based on my personal experience (which is very limited) I would say Taurus. I like some of their models but I just don't trust them to be reliable.

    Taurus. I feel like everything that they make is either cheap or just plain *****, or both. The Judge has got to be the sorriest excuse for a gun that Taurus has ever come up with.

    I was going to say Hi-Point too until I read this. I guess everything has a purpose. It is a good tool to teach them to clear jams! Also when they upgrade to something nicer Hi-Points make excellent boat anchors! :wavey:

    Exactly. Something to throw around and not really care too much about. :whistling:
    It's almost like buying a gun and a hammer in one package. :cool:

    But I have heard good things about Hi-Point carbines.
    Although I'm not a fan of pistol caliber long guns.

    Jennings/Hi Point/ Bryco/Raven/Lorcin.

    Each is a world-class piece of crap. And yes, I have had experience with all of these but thankfully never bought any of them.
