Any pistol in .25 or .32.

When one can get a .38 Spl, 9mm, or at least .380 which one can conceal in a pair of swim trunks... I really don't see the point.

...and they're usually fugly.
Surely you couldn't say that about any of the beretta .25 ACP or .32 ACP pistols?

For that matter I don't think i've seen an ugly beretta yet.
Sporterizing isn't a crime, but it should be.

hunting guns - don't hunt, no use for them
Jennings, Kel-Tec, HiPoint, etc. - that quality thing you know
ARs - I'm an AK man

Glocks, anything plastic. ARs, SxS shotguns, bullpups, and the already mentioned poor quality firearms in any configuration.

Any over-under or side-by-side shotgun. ESPECIALLY if it has frilly engraving on it, or if I could sell it and buy an AR, an optic, and a year's supply of ammo.

Any single-shot rifle, unless it's a Sharps or a precision rifle or a historical reproduction. No Ruger No. 1's and the like.

Jennings - Had one blow apart in my hand (Luckly for me I wasnt hurt)
HI-Point - Better as a paper weight then a hand gun
HK - because they hate us
Desert Eagle - just to damn big
S&W X frames - see Desert Eagle

Desert Eagle or Mark 23. Way WAYYYY too huge for me, and I can't seem to justify spending that much money on what amounts to be a massive warhammer sized pistol. Then again, if you want to give me one for free, I'm not going to argue with you, lol. There's nothing really *wrong* with either gun per se, but they're not for me.

If it's plastic or don't have a hammer, I ain't buying, love my 229 in da/sa and my 5903 and my 92 but just can't bring myself to like Glocks either. nWould like to find an older/hammered version of an HK in compact.

I honestly can't think of anything that I wouldn't at least try out, if it were given to me.

Glocks--ugly, feel bad in my hand and they spit brass straight up which often gets me.

Charter Arms---they just look and feel like something waiting to blow up.
Beware the old man with one well worn gun!

From personal experience the only guns I have had a problems with are Savage .22 rifles. This one bolt action I have has 2 extractors that simply hold on to the brass more often then not. Plus the magazine does not line up well with the chamber yet it doesn't have a feed ramp! POS!

I would never buy single shot or double barreled anything.

I would never buy a revolver for anything besides handgun hunting.

I will never buy another Glock 17 because I already have one and it will never break!

Probably any of the HK line of pistols. Just can't justify the cost. They are probably great firearms, just too much $.

.50 Desert Eagle flaunting gold plate and silver tiger stripes all over it.
Was being sold "used".
He already sold it 3 times in 6 months.

CZ-75B, and its grandmother the Browning Hi-Power.

These two plus the 1911A1 are still my favorite pistols and probably always will be.

"Pinto" revolvers: blued frame with nickel cylinder, etc. Ugly. Hate 'em.

Classic long guns (Ruger #1, Marlin lever rifle, O/U shotguns) with plastic stocks. Some guns just must have wood stocks.

Anything Ruger. Awful history, fugly nasty guns. They may work, but so do the Hi-Points and the old P-series Rugers have the same blockiness, cheapness, and weight.

Anything Kahr/AO. When multiple 1927A1s can exhibit the same exact problem (bolts blowing metal fragments out of the side when firing) and not work before that point reliably, and still cost what HK does.....I rest my case.

guns I'll never buy

I'll never buy a S&W automatic, as in anything S&W makes pistol or rifle.
I love S&W revolvers; Taurus, never again. They are not quite ready for prime time, yet.
Rugers, They do not shoot to point of aim, And their revolvers are not as accurate as Smith revolvers.
I usually don't do FN's, mostly they can't shoot lead(poligonal barrels) and Glocks just don't fit my hands.
I do CZ's (all cal. and my wife does too, all cal) and BErsa's. And yes, I've shot all of the above and I have a very interesting collection of CZ's
