Least favorite gun?
 
It occurred to me in the favorite gun thread that some folks love every gun they own. So not to hijack the thread, did anyone ever have a stinker that they were angry with themselves for buying?

A Davis .380 was my moment of shame, when it blew apart on me.:mad:

A bryco .380 auto I got about 16 years ago, never fired it and did not know the firing pin was screwed up and when I chambered a round in it, the round went off.

High Point .380. It's just not my 1911.

I remember early on in my FT career where I was nearly burned at the stake for saying that .380s were turds. There may be exceptions to the rule, but the rule is that .380s are not great guns.

My worst was a Ruger P89. What a bulky POS that was. I was ashamed of it.

Yeah, when I was a newlywed and funds were tight, had my share of "better than nothing" guns.

I got my .380 auto because all my other guns were in transit from Germany and would not get here for about 3 weeks so I needed something back then.

Picked up a Llama 9mm in a trade. Looked pretty much like a 1911 Gov't mdl. Nice
finish, but it was a blow-back 9. I NEVER COULD get the darned thing to fire more
that 3 times without screwing up. Tried everything I knew, a shoebox full of magazines,
springs etc.----no joy.

Traded it + cash for a S&W mdl 34 kit gun and never looked back.

My dad's favorite piece, ever, was a pearl handled, PPK that he took as a war trophy off of North Vietnamese Colonel that his team of Cambodians took down when he was with SF. He said it was the nicest pistol he had ever fired.
