    Taurus PT140. I tried to shoot it at my first Bullseye comp. Very Dissapointing. Out of 60 rounds fired, only 6 managed to find the target. Talk about embarrassing. I went the next week and bought my Colt Serirs 70 govt and never looked back. Actually, my wife bought it for our first christmas. So I can't get rid of it, Dang it.

    Sorry dude

    With recent ridiculously horrid posts I've seen on some of the other forums about problems people have had w/ their Taurus guns, and then the treatment they received from the company, I don't think I could buy another Taurus.

    My wife left me for buying a USP tactical 45.
    But I still can't say I regret buying the gun.














    JK. But she was still pretty pissed.

    i do regret selling some of my guns but not the springfield 1911 i got new at a gun show. i had constant FTF & FTE issues. tried many different magazines even top dollar mags i borrow at the range. i couldn't get through 2 mags in a row without a jam. i sold the gun without a reget at all. only now, looking at the 1911 posts, am i starting to think that i just got a lemon. everyone here seems very willing to vouch for them, so maybe it was just that one. i dtill regret buying it since i sunk alot of money into an unreliable gun.

    I don't necessarly regret it, but I never really shoot my 10/22 anymore. It was my first gun way back when, and I only paid $170 for it, but it's just been collecting dust in the case for the past six-eight months.

    i didn't, i had very limited knowledge on handguns at the time. i just thought that i got what a paid for. it was a 1911 A1 GI model. i had zero experience with 1911's and just liked the history and feel of the gun. this experience has really turned me off towards them.

    OMC Backup .45 ACP. Light firing pin hits sometimes, so I get a click instead of a bang. Had feeding problems for a while, but the liberal application of money to a gunsmith fixed that. Occasionally ejects into my forehead, usually with the sharp edge first, leaving little bloody semi-circles above my eyebrows.

    Still have it. Can't bring myself to sell it to somebody.

    Regretable guns

    I regret buying the PX4. I like a lot of things about it, but it wasn't really what I had in mind for that purchase. Totally reliable, but hard for me to shoot acurately. I'd give anything to go back and get the XD instead. I haven't given up on it yet. I might try some different sites at some point. I also just hung a streamlight light/laser on it. I'm hoping that will make for some better accuracy once I take it out and zero it in. At worst it will end up a reliable sock drawer gun.

    The only other regret was my first gun. A rossi .22 pump action rifle that didn't always feed well. Besides even though I was 12 a hotter round would have been more versitile. I regret not having something with enough juice to go after the deer that were abundant on my property at the time.

    My biggest complaint is with Bersa in general. My .45 the nickel finish peeled like a potato. And the magazine release broke. IT BROKE! I couldn't get my magazine loose for a month. And my .380 had surface rust all over the slide.

    Wink Kimber Tac Pro.II .45acp

    My Kimber Tac Pro II .45acp not because it has had any problems just because little items like needing a new recoil spring after 800 rounds. Also I really don't need or care for the Amb.Dec.Safety just another thing to get kicked on or off if hit by hand or finger. Now that I have the HK .45acp USP Comp. many of my other Kimbers won't see much action. Thats just my Kimbers crying.

    Unhappy

    I bought a Llama .45 couldn't hit shit with it and the mags wouldn't drop free. Sold it years ago, now what do I wish I would have kept is a better question.

    Most recently, a GLOCK 27. It functions as it is supposed to, but it is too large and blocky for a pocket gun, not substantially easier to carry on the belt than a larger gun and has an unpleasant snappy recoil. I like my S&W M&P compact 9mm (a gun of roughly equal size) far better. Another is a Ruger SP101. It too functions just fine, but it is more difficult to shoot than a subcompact autoloader, has a vicious recoil with full-powered magnums, is heavy and only holds five shots. I just can't find a use for it.

    I've also had a couple that were complete steaming turds and refused to function, namely a Taurus PT945 and a Para-Ordnance P12-45.

    Over the past six decades I've bought and sold a lot of guns - pistols, rifles, shotguns, flint locks, cap and ball, machine guns and a cannon. The only gun I regret buying is the Glock 17 I still own.
    I've been able to adjust/fit the trigger or adapt to the trigger pull on almost all of the guns -
    except this darn Glock!

    I've been patiently waiting for the opportunity to rid myself of this dog for the last five years. Nobody is interested in taking it off my hands! I'm not going to give it away, but it's close to becomming a boat anchor!

    Well I bought a Walther PPK/S on impulse because she said it was "cute" and fit in her hand well. We took it to the range and it snapped her pretty good. Walked out of the range/gun store with a new Glock 26. Believe it or not it was easier to handle for her than that 380? The gun store was only going to give me $300.00 when I bought it last week for $480???? Anyone want to buy a PPK/S

    I have bought many guns in my 61 years.But, had only one bad one.It was an AutoMag in 22 magnum.This gun jammed constantly,spayed lead,stove pipe, And, finally as the last straw:fired with a partially open breech.Sprayed me with hot powder and a small piece of brass embedded in my cheek. and about blew my eardrums out even with ear protection.That's when I got so mad at the damn thing I threw it in the river that I was shooting into.And there it sits to this day.
