    What Would You Never Own?

    What is the one gun brand you hate the most? Like, if someone even tried to give you one you wouldn't take it?

    Guess I should say mine. Of course Hi Point and the like, but Taurus and Beretta are two others. Of course, I am also extremely picky with guns, so the list could go on, but it's usually just certain ones from companies.

    Well, I knew I might upset a few happy Taurus owners. But, while I can see some people don't like Glocks - if U were given one, you really wouldn't keep it? Hmm... Well, we all have our taste...

    Honestly... yes I would trade it asap for another firearm or for ammo if it came to that.They may be as reliable as can be for some but I have shot one once, and if FTF'd itself to death(in my opinion) in only 3 mags.
    I have no desire to even hold another let alone trust my "anything "to one.
    I guess its the reverse story to all those 1911 haters out there that had one bad experience with a 1911 and consider them all to be trash or expensive toys.I trust my ass to my 1911's over any other sidearm I have or will ever have.Too many years trustin ol' JMB I guess.His invention has served me too well to tinker with what works for me.

    Well, my 1st gun in 1993 was a Glock 17 - it was a jammomatic. But, I knew that was unusual for a Glock. So, I didn't hold it against the brand. Later got a Glock 19 and Glock 26. They worked fine. I carried that Glock 26 for 8 years before I ditched it in favor of the P99 compact. But, not once did those Glocks jam. Now, the only glock I have is the G34 - and, it works awesome.

    So, if ya get another chance, don't disgard it like others do with the 1911 - like U said - it was a 1x experience.

    Anyway - pretty much if I was given any gun, I'd probably sell it to buy another P99

    Now, someone DID give me a free Beretta - I won that 90-Two. But, I sold it because the grip is a bit too big for my hand - or at least it is now that I am used to the P99. My hands are rather small, and I thought about it a long time before I sold that thing. But, I decided that it wasn't for me. But, it was an awesome gun.

    Beretta because their service department is junk. Run by trained apes. I have had several in the pass that were good guns, and I had no trouble with.

    The el-cheapo guns like Hi-point or Lorcin I would get rid of as fast as possible. Any of the guns by major manufacturers like Glock, Beretta, Sig, Walther, Ruger, etc., I would keep, I have had good luck with all of them.

    9er knows my answer. I will never buy another Taurus product due to their complete lack of customer service. Regards, Richard

    Since I have had constant problems with my little Raven Arms .25 I’d have to say that. But I did get this almost twenty years ago so who knows if they’ve changed.

    Unhappy What I would not own?

    Never say never, I dislike the cheap pot metal guns like Jennings, Ravens lorcens, Hipoint. I dislike DA revolvers that have triggerpulls that are not like S&Ws (Rugers, Colts, Charters, Rossi or Taurus.) I dislike the old break actions like H&R s Iver Johnson, other cheap copies of the early S&W revolvers. I cannot conceive of owning one of the Chinese military rifles or copies of the Russian pistols. But would I ever NEVER own one of these. Strange things happen.

    Anything that's stolen or has the serial numbers scrawled off of it.

    Hi Points aren't pot metal, they're plastic. And I'd gladly take any free ones. How many of you have any real experience with Hi Points? And no, looking at the price tag or "I"ve heard..." doesn't count. There just seems to be a lot of negative discussion about them here. Just wonder what the reason is. Certainly have a better feel to them than blocks.

    I had a Hi-point given to me once and I gave it away before I even shot it. So I have no real experience with one. I did see a guy shoot one at the range a few weeks ago and he and his buddy fired no less than 300 rounds through it that day and it never failed. Neither of those guys could hit the target but that seemed to be operator error.

    I have a Hi-point 40 SW. It's been sitting in the safe for 5+ years. First day I brought it home, Didn't even get a full mag through it before I had several stove pipes. Needless to say, it's been a "safe peasant" all these years.

    But considering I already "bought" this brand, I don't know?

    They're not the most refined pistols in the world nor are they competition pistols by any stretch of the imagination but they certainly aren't "junk" nor problematic. I can definately take care of a target at 25 yrds with the .45ACP model. It's definately good for the price. But I wouldn't compare it to anything twice its price.

    I have no interest in owning any crunchenticker (traditional DA pistol) from any manufacturer, nor any of the "LEM" or "DAK" guns. I tried Ship's vaunted Walther P99 last week, and was similarly unimpressed.

    I don't have any use for any revolvers, since I think they are obsolete (which isn't the same as useless) for defense and I don't hunt.

    I like 1911s for recreational/competition guns, but I mainly spend my range time with my defense guns. In my experience in my own shooting, at various training courses, and in competitions, 1911s just aren't as reliable as more modern designs

    Basically, if someone gave me just about any free gun, I would sell/trade it to get (a) more training, (b) cases of practice ammo, or (c) a gun built on one of my favored platforms - Glock 9mm, KelTec .380, or AR15.

    It was a QA. It was okay, don't get me wrong, I just prefer the trigger on the Glock. Not crazy about the Walther sights, either. Maybe I am just habituated to the Glock design. The Walther grip is admittedly comfortable.

    Basically, I wouldn't be horrorstruck if I were issued a P99, but it's far from my first choice. There just didn't seem to be anything especially distinguishing about it. Kinda like the Steyr M series.

    Personally, I'd prefer - in rough order - Glock (obviously), 1911, CZ75, XD, HK P7, or Kahr.

    As someone else complained about the P99 but only tried the QA - give the A/S a chance before marking it off your list. Hell, I am a P99 fanatic, and even "I" don't like the QA.

    Isn't that what Walther has been pushing lately? The A/S isn't even on their site anymore.

    I like the P99 concept in the A/S configuration. I don't see why Walther would stray from it.
