welcome to the forum! stop over in the Introductions Section and say hello.

kind of strange about the CZ, because as a majority they are pretty damned reliable and function as good as many pistols costing much more. i think you might need to either change ammo or send it in and have it worked on. you just very seldom hear of a CZ having issues as far as reliablity.

(In a conspiritory whisper.)

A Jennings J22. the only reason I keep it is that it belonged to my mom. Dad bought it for her in the late 80s while he was still in the Corps, so that she would have something to protect us with while he was away on TAD. It stays locked up in the safe, hidden from sight and public knowledge, cleaned regularly, and shot once every couple years whether it needs it or not.

We lost mom to a heart attack in July of '03, and keeping it is my way of remembering her. Kind of a way of reminding myself that she still has eyes on me...

My dad owns a C9 and I have shot it a few times. It never had a problem while I was shooting and neither has my dad. It personally does not fit my hand and if I was gonna buy a gun that size I would get one that held more ammo.

As for the CZ there must be something wrong with it. What model is it? The poly 2075s had a problem with the frame and if you sent one in for warranty they would just send you back a whole new steel framed model. Other than that CZ's guns are usually amazing. You might try contacting CZ to get some help with it.

How about a 25 acp Raven. My wife bought this one for me probably 20 years ago at a place called Hanoi Hanks in Macon GA for I think $45. It was over priced.

Oh yeah, I'd say that one qualifies. Not really ugly but not one that you want to brag about.

Default Westpoint Savage Arms 487T

My very first 22 semi auto rifle I purchased in the mid 70s

A Westpoint Savage Arms 487T 22 rifle I bought at a True Value hardware store. The rifle's is not very accurate when it does cycle? From the beginning jam after jam no matter what different brand of ammo was used.
I still own that rifle,it's tucked way,way,way back in a closet,not in the safe. I thought about selling from time to time,but I don't wish that rifle on anyone. lol

I think anything taurus is junk then I bought a Rossi 410 similar to a "Snake Charmer" and it said "BrazTech" on the receiver and Rossi on the barrel. If BrazTech owns taurus, I will keep it but if taurus owns Braztech, I'm selling it.

Dude, sorry you feel that way. Taurus owns both brand names, as well as Diamondback, and they might have more. The "Rossi-BrazTech line was made to be more affordable to the less affluent shooter. That said, I have a Taurus 92 Stainless with a third party match barrel, but even with he orig. tube,this gun has had less then 20 malfunctions in 23+ years I have owned it,. It's been a comp. gun, a winter concealed carry gun, and a home defense gun while living in the North East Bronx where I grew up and then returned to for a while in my 20's & 30's.

I do hear that people have problems with their Taurus guns, my myself, and a cousin who owns both a 92 and a 709, plus his wife's 738, have had no issues. If it really turns you off do what ya gotta do, but at least give it a chance. We're going to do just that with their new poly 38spl.+P,..

I make my judgement of taurus from the poor quality and workmanship of their early revolvers.
