Not a handgun but Rem Nylon 66. I think it was made by Matel.

A person gave me a Raven .25 that he didn't want anymore. That gun was the only AD I've ever had in my life - went off while trying to get it into battery with my fingers nowhere near the trigger. no one was hurt because I was practicing muzzle control, but the round didn't even go through the drywall - was able to pull it out with my fingers. Destroyed the gun myself because I couldn't, in good conscience, sell it to anyone else.

S&w m&p 9mm. I couldnt get rid of it fast enough. Trigger take up felt like it was full of sand, melonite finish rusted (i take very good care of my guns), barely ejected empties, and wouldnt group for ****. Buckshot from a shotgun holds a tighter group and the pistol was fired from a rest! Never again will i buy a smith auto. Revolvers only from them from now on!

GSG 22lr 1911-

This gun possesses some attributes I really love. But mine for the most part has been a resounding dud. So too for the GSGs owned by a few shooters I frequently share the range with...we all got them months apart from different sources, so it wasn't any kind of "bad batch" deal.

It's a great concept. It's a mostly decent gun. Cheap finish? Yes, but that's sorta expected in a $340 gun. Two broken guide rods, one broken barrel bushing between the three of us. Mine's since been upgraded, and its an okay gun at this point. Still the occasional (every 15rds or so) stovepipe with bulk round nose. But 22lrs can be finicky and it does better with premium CCI/Winchester. No precision target pistol to be sure, but otherwise an okay gun. I feel like I can maybe outshoot my GSG, and that ain't sayin a whole lot (I wouldn't say that about any of my other firearms that I shoot regularly). Probably will be a keeper though. A number of other members on these boards have had decent luck with them.

All things considered, I've been very fortunate. Through maybe 20 guns it's the only one I've ever had the slightest issue with.

Sig Mosquito. Absolute POS.

Proud to say I've never bought a bum piece. Every gun I've ever owned was a great shooter!

When I was younger, I used to have this snub nose cap gun. The kind that took the round caps, not the strips. Anyway, the trigger was horrible and there was some kind of sharp plastic seam on it that always messed up my finger.
