+1, and...
...a Mossburg 930 SPX semi-auto. Bad ergonomics (need the Monte-Carlo stock to use the dopey sights) and they seem to stop too often too easily.

Not able to read 750 posts but the Cliff Notes version is every gun ever manufactured is a POS to one or more people. HK, SIG, S&W pos; really? Joe

At one time I would have said Glock...just because I thought they were overrated. I used to think Glock was the Apple computer of the gun world.

But now I want a Glock. (I will never buy anything marketed by Apple though EVER)

I would buy almost anything for the right price...I've never had a really bad lemon of a gun...and I've owned and shot Rugers (TONS of them) Remingtons, Savages(tons of them), Mossbergs(tons of them) Winchesters, Llamas, J.P. Sauers, Antonio Zolis, Marlins etc.

Only thing I can think of that I wouldn't buy even for a couple of bucks is a zip gun....

Don't have one.

Given the opportunity, I'd get at least one of every gun ever made, and probably more.

Beyond that it's just a matter of priorities.

Any gold plated "commerative" gun or the like which is hugely overpriced and immediately drops in value by 60% if it's been fired.

Anything chambered for what I call a "novelty" caliber. I tend not to deviate from the NATO standards for the sake of ammo availability during a SHTF event. I just can't see the point in buying something like a .25 caliber pistol or one of these seriously 'out there' rifles chambered in one of the plethora of specialty calibers. If push ever comes to shoot I want to know that I can keep my weapons fed.......

I'm not a fan of striker-fired pistols. I absolutely won't purchase another EAA.

Why would anyone be so shortsighted as to rule out any purchase? I will buy any gun if the deal and price is right.

Probably a Desert Eagle. Any color, any finish. I just think they're ugly.

Same thing with those big 45-70 revolvers that look like a kitchen trash can with a barrel and a grip attached. You can have them.

Some of my very best guns and some of my very worst are Rugers. My Single Six and Blackhawk are wonderful. My 10/22 mag is only good for a boat anchor. One of my very favorite guns is an Ruger No 1 in 357 mag.

welcome to the world of Firearms enthusiasts and collectors Glocks explode and Sigs are all merchandising selling mediocre weapons. Beretta, Colt, Ruger and S&W are your sure bets.
