    "Ruger's taking a beating here....."

    I know, and I hated to do it (P90 above) - but to even things out, I had a Colt King Cobra, which was really nice, but the cylinder was so short, any longish bullets would just BARELY fit, even cast, crimped in the proper groove, and sometimes not fit at all without protruding past the cylinder. ANY bit of bullet creep would lock it up. I probably could have worked more with it, but it just bugged me. Never had the problem with my other .357's

    Ruger LC9 for me, but I have other Ruger products that I am fond of (10/22 & P95)

    I had a 6" Ruger Security Six in .357. Nicely made gun. I really wanted to like it, but I couldn't hit anything with it. I couldn't see anything wrong with the timing or the rifling; I guess it just didn't fit my hand.

    I picked up a pre-64 winchester model 70 a few years ago at a pawnshop dirt cheap. Never could warm up to it and sold it for a decent profit. I'll stick to mausers, 1903's, & winchester 54's

    I love my Ruger P90. But, as much as I've tried, I can't seem to warm up to my Savage 24v. The old .222/20ga over/under was my Grandpa's, so I don't think I'll ever bring myself to get rid of it. It seems like it should be pretty versatile, but I just can't find a good use for it...

    Springfield V10 Ultra Compact .45.

    It ran great, it was concealable ...and it was a 45! BUT the porting absolutely ruined that gun for me. I was going to try to buy an un-ported barrel when a buddy made me a really fair offer for it as is.

    That's what I keep telling myself. But there's not exactly a lot of coyotes around these parts. A few... but not many.

    Maybe one day I'll have to figure out how to hunt 'em.

    Another Ruger hater - their 28 gauge Red Label was the worst POS gun I ever bought that was new - three trips back, still a POS, bye bye it went

    Sig P290 compact 9mm. Only firearm I bought on an impulse and only purchase I regret. I hope it never happens again.... but it probably will. :rolleyes:

    A New Model Ruger Super Single Six.
    The old models lined up the chambers with the gate for case ejection & loading.
    The new model cylinder had to be held in place.:cuss:
    I got rid of it ASAP.

    Come to think of it... my Nylon 66 is the only firearm I've ever sold. So... there's that.

    A Beretta Urika II! What a pile of Italian scrap! Never shot, wouldn't cycle twas junk! When it did cycle the recoil was terrible! You'd think for hundreds of years Beretta would make a good gun. Well I must of gotten an oops. I kept it cleaned and babied it but it was junk!

    Called Beretta and their customer service guy was a jerk! I'm a very nice guy and treat everyone with respect. I told the guy I'd never buy another Beretta/Benneli product again. He said send it in. I could fix all its issues but was sick of doing it. I wanted another gun or my money back! I'm not sending my only shotgun in for repairs in the first three weeks of waterfowl season!

    I know own a Browning Maxus, pleasant recoil and muzzle rise and not a single miss hap. Only issue is trigger trapping....

    Way back when I got this Ruger P85 not long after they came out. Was never able to shoot it worth a darn. Replaced it with a 1991A1 and that hit the spot.
