I still had the same problem it was either a failure to feed or failure to eject

Worst gun = Taurus TCP 380 . It couldn't do anything right. Failure to feed, Failure to eject, stovepiping, ejected into your face, and it kicked like a mule. And this wasn't just me - but several companions shooting the gun. One female friend refused to shoot it anymore after one magazine attempt.

Traded it for a Ruger LCP 380. That cured all the troubles. The LCP has not one time failed - and it shoots with less kick. It is my favorite cc amongst a stable of larger things I have.

No more Taurus' for me.

My first Colt product was a 6" Huntsman, the cheaper version of the Woodsman. It was a really fine firearm. My second Colt was a Trooper Mark III in .357. If one raised the muzzle when cocking it, the transfer bar would catch on the bottom of the firing pin. Two trips back to Colt didn't fix the problem and the revolver was traded off and replaced with a 4" S&W Combat Magnum (the wonderful Model 19).

Kel-Tec PF9 is the only pistol a didn't care for.

I work with a guy that carries his everyday so I figured I'd buy one. At $200 to $300 new I thought it wouldn't hurt to try. First trip out to the range I ran 3 full magazines through it before it stopped working. Didn't have FTEs or FTFs, it just completely stopped operating. The trigger would not engage anything and as I pulled it I could see the hammer just sitting there, not moving at all. Took it home and cleaned the crap out of it. Went back to the range and got off 2 rounds before the same thing happened. I discovered that the trigger would function only if I pushed it to the left as a pulled it back. Got rid of it the next day. Recently bought a Sig P938 and that gun as an absolute blast to shoot. Not one single malfunction of any kind.

Huh, I have good luck with all Kel Tec products, including the PF9. It could have just been a fluke gun.

Back when I lived in New York, I had a semi auto Charles Dayly 3 1/2 12 gauge. The thing was a jam-o-matic.

You're probably right about my PF9 being a fluke. However if I'm carrying the gun for self defense I want it to perform flawlessly every time I pull the trigger.
