Wby vanguard. Handloaders nightmare. Had 2, one of which was a sub minute of angle. Niether came close to meeting my expectations.

Glock. Just doesn't fit my hand well.
Don't let the men in the black helicopters know about the guns...

I just got my never buy gun, and man, I'm disappointed I let it go so long.

Glock 21

AMT .380 pocket pistol, took the hide off my hand every time I fired it.
Taurus tracker 44 mag with a 4 inch barrel, way to much recoil, and the cylinder locked up all the time. I read someone put down KIMBER? I have the pro carry 2 and I love it.
Any black rifles... I love the look of a fine wood stock, I can't stand the synthetic weapons.

S&W Sigma .380.... I had one and about one half to 2/3 of the time, it spontaneously ejected the magazine on the third or fourth round. This problem persisted with all manner of different ammo and across three different magazines. It left a bad enough taste that I am not really inclined to try any other S&W semi either (but I have two S&W wheelguns I love).

Very interesting comments...amazed by some of the choices but if it wasn't for varying tastes we would never be able to find/get deals on what WE like I guess! ...hi-point fans must love gun shows

For me...
Ruger P89
Smith M&P pistols- hate the trigger extension
Anything 9mm+ that I can't get a full grip on...I'm sure I'll make that mistake again though

For me, a better way to pharse it is "what would I buy in terms of brands."

I've shot many things. Most are just fine but I can't/don't want to own every brand out there. I'd want to consolidate down to fewer manufacturers.

Rimfire pistols

Centerfire pistols
for revolver Ruger

Rimfire rifles
I'm fairly open on this one as I like many brands of 22 LRs.

Centerfire Rifles

I think Thor's hammer was an 45-70 lever action loaded with Garrett cartridges.

I find that 90% of the questions asked here have been answered 20 or more years ago by Jeff Cooper in his Gargantuan Gunsite Gossip books.

Best website I have ever seen regarding gun facts and figures for your discussions with others:

voicomp, don't let the sigma ruin it for you, S&W 3rd gens and SW1911s are excellent,
Black Powder- you either love it, or you should try it

Will never purchase (and would immediately sell if given to me as a gift):

1. Any "modern" semi-automatic handgun whose basic design has remained essentially unchanged for 101 years or more. I mean, c'mon, we've come a long, long way in handgun design in over 100 years.

2. Any semi-automatic handgun that uses a hammer rather than a striker to ignite its load (see #1). Hammers belong on revolvers. Real pistols use strikers.

3. Anything with the name Hi-Point on it.

I just have to chime in on agreeing with all the Hi-point never buys. That is a cheap pos, would make a far better club, than gun, IMO.
I carry a gun, because a cop is just too darned heavy, and hard to feed.

I call poo-poo on this. If you're referring to the 1911, it's design has yet to be bested. Maybe that's why it's been around and so popular for so long - even in calibers it wasn't originally designed for.

Obviously, your mileage did vary.

Yeah, I'm biased and opinionated.

There are a lot of Harley owners who feel exactly the same way. Thank goodness there are plenty of firearms (and motorcycle) manufacturers who would beg to differ.

Oh, and to stay within the spirit of the thread, add anything from Rossi to my list.

I'll buy any Gun as long as its the right price, although there are some for which that right price would never exceed $25
Last time I read the second amendment, I didnt see anything about the "right to keep and bear fowling pieces and squirrel guns".

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

You have excellent taste in firearms.

Can't say "never" because I once said "I would never buy a Glock". My EDC is a G30 and the wife's is a G26. Both are flawless in every way. The 30 is 10+1 of 45ACP and I have a 13 round mag as well. Wife's came with 10+1 in 9mm but she went for 12 round mags for more grip. I sometimes grab her G26 and it's so small and light it is a pleasure to carry. Ugly as hell but here in Florida we have to be concealed so for the time being my wife won't have to Krylon rattle can pink her's and I don't need a pimped out 1911.
