I've bought many just for the experience of owning and firing that gun. Some (most) I've kept, others I sold or traded. Retained the experience, though.
I have indeed, they're why I've created my list of requirements/criteria that anything I purchase now must meet.
I don't like every gun, not even close. I don't like every anything.
Guns I've bought just because were my first, and basically my education in what I would and wouldn't like in guns:
Ruger LCP & LC9, DAO trigger, found out quickly how much I dislike them.
Glock 30, the only DAO trigger type I like, shouldn't even be able to be called that, but lack of manual safety is unacceptable to me. Didn't even know to look for one before I bought it, now I do.
