What was your worst gun purchase you ever made because you were young, cheap, and stupid at the time? Mine was a Jennings .32 pistol I bought to carry with me back when I was young and poor and living in a bad area in Alabama. Luckily I never had to fire the thing. I still had it up until a couple years ago when I traded it for a few packs of Lead-Away cloths. I think I got the better deal. Those cloths were worth at least $20 retail.
