      What gun do you regret buying?

      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.

      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.

      And I almost bought one of those since you were saying it was your new carry weapon.

      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
