My Ruger LCR at first. It was chambered in .38 and had severe timing issues. Failed to fire 1 out of every 5 times, if not more. HOWEVER, Ruger took it back (twice) and not only fixed it, made it much better at ZERO cost to me. It then became one of my favorites! SO, I guess the worst was my Taurus 85. Worked very well, was just never a huge fan of it. So, I gave it to my Dad.

Some sort of Spanish .25 ACP that a friend left here cause some other friend left it at his house and my friend is a prohibited person. The thing sat around here for 15+ years and one day I found out about and up coming gun"BuyBack" (now theres a confusing term) giving me enough time to get the thing so it would go click and be there to trade it for $75.00 in Gift cards.

Went there stood in line the guy says does it work I say yes. He checks it and hands me 2 gift cards worth $75.00 I buy my gas for the next two weeks with the cards.

Then I take the $75.00 cash I would have spent to fill my tank and I add $225.00 to it and I buy a Nice NEW Ruger MKIII 22-45rp

Thanks morons at the "Gun Buy Back"

My worst firearm was a Kahr PPK80. Failure to seat the slide about once every other magazine feed. After several returns to the factory without a successful repair I was able to trade in back at the GS.
I love shooting the guns I own. My expectations from a carry gun are concealable, reliable, accurate and fun to shoot. For me, 3 out of 4 isn't good enough, especially when "fun to shoot" is very important to me. The LCP was just a nasty little gun to shoot. Anyway, the LCP is gone and I'm glad. I traded it for a NAA 22mag. Yes, I love the little gun. Very accurate, easy to carry, reliable and fun to shoot.

gr8oldguy: Hope you can find the 22 mag ammo. Haven't seen it for months in my area but I haven't tried ordering off web sites.

Thanks, for the thought. I have enough to get me through.

.22 mag isn't a problem around here. Only .22 LR.

I guess you would have to pay shipping to them for warranty servicing. Probably $75 to them via FedEx or UPS. Maybe a FFL near you would send it via USPS for their fee ($20 or so?) and USPS shipping (my guess is $15).

A certified letter for the sight screw may get their attention.

I had a C9 that worked very well for me.The main issue with Hi-Points are that their magazines absolutely suck and sometimes you have to tweak the lips on the magazines and polish the hell out of the feedramp.My Hi-Point .380 works well also.
They really are a hit and miss gun.
