What handguns don't you like?
For comparison's sake, member Submoa suggested I look into handguns people don't like so I can get a comparison on (perceived) "bad" guns vs. "good" guns. He raised the question, "how can I know what a good gun is like if I haven't really had experience with a bad one."
So in all of your experiences, what are some "bad" handguns I should look to try? Why?
Handguns I don't like, Hmmm . . . .
Well, keep Mike's basic tenets in mind and realize that every individual is different in ability, hand size and physical makeup, ability to concentrate and attention span. I don't like a Glock but that 's just for me. The grip just absolutely does not fit my hand. The weapon as a platform is excellent, I just am uncomfortable shooting one and I had a G22 for quite awhile. I sold it because it is the issue weapon of the S.O. and I have one of theirs. I carry a Beretta 96 because it fits me and performs flawlessly so far. I really don't like any gun pointed at me as I have been privy to that picture and it's not fun. Obviously didn't fare any worse as I am still here. I don't like guns in the hands of criminals or individuals who don't handle them safely or properly. I know I'm a little off topic but a .25ACP pressed against the temple will do just as thorough a job as a .45 ACP will. As you experience more handguns and rent and shoot those you do not own you will develop your own set of criteria. Don't buy obvious junk and don't waste your time with any gun that doesn't fit you ergonomically.
