I have not yet regretted a purchase!
There is a thread about what gun U would reach for first if ya needed it - so, what gun do U regret buying?
My first gun was a Glock 17 - it was jammomatic city. It never worked right. I knew that was unusual, so it didn'ts top me from buying other Glocks later - but, this gunw as horrible...
Beretta. Not because of the gun, but there service leaves a lot to be desired. Never again for me.
I bought a Colt Gold Cup back in 96 that was a complete piece of junk. That gun would not feed any kind of ammo reliably. If I got all the way through 1 mag without a failure it would shock me. Three trips to two different gun smiths and no one could make that gun work. It was the most expensive handgun I ever bought and was a complete piece of crap. At the same time I had that gun I had a Jennings 380. someone gave me and it was completely reliable. That being said I would buy another Colt but I have never purchased a Jennings and never will.
I think gun is plural or at least in my case it is. I am sorry i ever laid eyes on my PT111 as Taurus has no customer service. My beautiful Series 70 Government and its Ace 22 Conversion kit were both POSs. I have a FN 49 in 40 S&W that has a terrible trigger. I am sure this group is good for a start. Regards, Richard
I bought a Raven Arms .25 about twenty years ago. It shot fine but the safety was/is dangerous. You can’t have a live one in the barrel. I lost the guts once and replaced them a couple years ago only to lose the guts again. I think it’s God telling me to leave it alone. It just sits in my gun case all lonely.
...that's a tough one....let's see here....hmmmmmmmmmmmmm....ooh ooh ooh....I know which one....the Walther P-99.
Back on the serious side. I've purchased a Steyr M40, hated it. Fortunately, Gander Mtn took it back in trade for a Taurus Pt100. It is ok, but had some accuracy issues at first. A trip back to the factory resolved that. No problems with Taurus service except it took a little longer than I expected. My biggest regret for handguns is my Desert Eagle in 357. It's VERY finicky on ammo and cleanliness. I like a gun I can take to the range, throw it in the bag and not have to clean it for a couple or three trips. So far, with the exception of my DE, all of my handguns will do just that.
I bought a Taurus PT-745 then traded it in for a PT-145 after two weeks. At first I was thinking the single stack magazine of the 745 and the 7+1 capacity would make it better for concealed carry. After carrying it for two weeks, I realized that very small added thickness of the double stacked magazine in the PT-145 wasn't anything to worry about. Now I have 10+1 rounds of .45ACP instead of just 7+1. So I guess I regret purchasing the PT-745 but it wasn't due to the gun itself. It was because I was new to concealed carry and thought that slightly narrower grip would make a big difference.
A Taurus PT-111 9mm.
I don't know what I was thinking.
My Bersa Thunder 380, but I've ranted about that POS enough in this forum. LOL!
A cheap hungarian hi-power knock-off that couldn't group 4 inches at 7 yards in a ransom rest.Luckily my youngest son decided he wanted that one for his grad. present.Who says ya cant get even with yer kids for all those years of torment.........
No, IIRC it was made in the early 60's or late 50's in hungaria,and I believe the barrel was shot out, but the pistol functioned good and was safe or I would not have given it to my son(even if he did deserve it )Ya just couldnt hit the sky with it if ya aimed up and pulled the trigger
