    DW 4" stainless .357 Magnum revolver. Hands down THE biggest POS gun quite possibly ever made.

    I agree with everything you said! It is damn accurate in single action though.

    The worst for me was my very first GLOCK. It was a G36. The magazine always pinched my finger and it constantly had FTE even after a trip back to GLOCK.

    Doyle,
    Was it the gun or the scope? The mini-30 I used to have destroyed scopes. None that I tried lasted more than two trips to the range. When bullets started flying all over, I knew the scope had died...again.

    On irons it shot like a mini-14.

    So much this! I had a PF9 that I sent back 3 times before I got rid of it. After a few years I decided to give Kel-Tec another chance and picked up a ceracoted P3AT that has been flawless. Even got an extended 9 round mag for it with a grip extension. Very pleased with it.

    6" blued Ruger GP100. Felt like a brick, terrible balance. Couldn't shoot it worth beans.

    Was hoping for something like the Security Six I loved; but they'd changed the action so the trigger didn't feel anything like the Six and I could never pick up the rapid fire rhythm that came naturally with the Six.

    Kept telling myself what a wonderfully engineered and overbuilt revolver it was and how I should be overjoyed at owning it. Finally, one day, the scales fell away and I traded the turd.

    Do you have one? I resolved not to dry fire or decock any more after I had to replace the safety barrel. Not sure which action stressed it, or whether it was both.

    I fabbed some thin grips from aluminum which shrunk the size of the gun, and made it shootable.

    I do and other than the physically impossible (literally) double action trigger pull, I love it! I tried the lighter springs but it made the single action trigger into a hair trigger. I just always cock it before firing. The recoil is brisk but it's so accurate with the Silver Bear 9x18 I shoot thru it.

    Here is a photo of my condition-3-only truck gun. It got the dremel treatment on the grip tang. Makes a decent pocket gun with the thin grips.

    S&W 340pd - worst to shoot. Shooting magnums will make a man out of you.

    The worst I ever owned was a Walther PPK. It jammed at least once every 10 or 15 rounds. It was one of the made in USA Walthers before Smith and Wesson took over.

    I bought a cheap Hipoint 9mm when I was younger, ugly and nothing but jams, stovepipes. Also had a Taurus Millennium 9mm that did the same, bought a Glock and never looked back.

    I shot an AMT .22 Mag - very cool concept, nice design and feel. It was disappointingly inaccurate and had FTF every 4th or 5th shot. It was a great pistol up until when I pulled the trigger.

    Walther P22. With all kinds of ammunition that thing was a jammomatic. Can never recommend one to anybody.

    My worst was my Walther PPK .380 Reliable but horribly uncomfortable. It is tied only with my Bernardelli Model 80 .380 which is also horribly uncomfortable to shoot. Sold the PPK for a Bersa and never looked back. Still have the Beast Bernardelli

    I have been telling a falsehood while posting here. I had stated before that my Glock was the first handgun I had ever bought. That's not true. I forgot about this jewel. I bought this when I turned twenty one over twenty years ago and I had forgot about it. I only had it about a month when I realized it was a POS. I sold it back to the pawn shop I bought it at. Lol.

    Worse pistol I have shot were S&W Sigma and Walter P22. The trigger were just too long and heavy that I can't achieve the same accuracy with any of my other pistols.

    I rather spend $100 for a hi point than $200 on either Sigma or P22.
