My WIFE has a model 442 and she loves to shoot hers-abeit only a couple to a few cylinders full at a time.

Disassembly is a snap - it's the reassembly that sucks! I have to get the damned instructions out each time I clean the damned gun to refamiliarize myself with the contortions needed to get that little lever in the right position. Some company sells a conversion kit to eliminate the hassle. If I shot it more than once a year I'd probably remember the procedure. The stock sights suck for accurate target work. Those sights belong on a 1911, not a .22.

I hate any gun that's either really a piece of junk, or is insanely overpriced, and doesn't function very well.

I dislike 1911's quite a bit, but don't hate the ones that are sanely priced. I don't like the way they feel in my hand much at all. The $1000+ turds that won't run an entire mag of FMJ ammo through them, I do hate them. A friend of mine has over a dozen of those turkeys, and it's a miracle when one of them makes it through two magazines in a row. Meanwhile, our "junk" CZ 97B's, Baby Eagles, Sigs, and EAA Witnesses saw through anything and everything we put in them with out a hitch. No "Limp wristing" nonsense, no picky about ammo, they just shoot. Are they as accurate as the $1000+ turds? Nope, but who cares? My friend's 60+ year old 1911 clanks like an old car, and looks pretty bad, but it shoots fine. I still dislike the grip intensely, give me a CZ or clone, anytime.

High priced, European, over-under shotguns. I've seen my FIL outshoot these type of guns with his 870.

Also, not a fan of side by side shotguns either, although I don't hate them, I just won't buy one.

Really not a fan of the Glock models. The angle on the grip is just too different. A 27 has been the only gun I've ever been glad to have gotten rid of.

I second on the Remington Viper. What a junker!! I know HI-Points have their place for folks who have little to spend on a defensive handgun, and if I had it and nothing else to use, then yes I would have one. Here comes the "but", but what an ugly gun and reaks of cheap. I have owned many cheap guns, like NEF handi rifles, that while didn't cost much, they shot good, and didn't feel cheesey in the quality department.

Other hateful things, overpriced 1911's (my Rock Island Armory outshoots my buddy's Kimber Raptor II) overpriced Smith revolvers, way over priced anything with Colt stamped on it. And overpriced AR15's only because I only have one and can't afford another! And I really hate lightweight 12 ga pump action slug guns. well at least my shoulder does.
