I guess if they were giving away cold Bud at an August day game in St. Louis, some of you guys would still try to buy an MGD. So you go ahead with that plan.

I am never gonna buy some monster mega big bore thing to show people how tough I am...when I don't need it to actually shoot something that big and scary. 9mm, .45ACP, .357 Magnum, .223, 12ga, .303, .308, 30-'06, 45-70 (in a rifle) ought to do it.

I don't need a snub-nose scandium frame .454 Casull. I don't need a .458 Lott or a .600 nitro. If I lived in Africa, I'd get a .416 Rigby or a or a 440-400 or a .375.

I sure will never buy one of those AR or AK pistols.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they're not.

Anything chambered in .380.

Anything chambered in an odd ball fad caliber.

Cutman, I'll make you a deal on Laurona O/U with a broken firing pin. I noticed that's not on your list.

By the way, when did this topic change from "Guns I'll never buy" to "Guns I hate and think anyone who owns one is an idiot?"

To paraphrase Matthew Quigley "I said I didn't have any use for them, I didn't say you couldn't use one".

48 pages and only one complaint about the Stoeger/Beretta Cougar. Hmm..I've been thinking about an alternative to my SIG P229. That might be the ticket.

I would never buy a Derringer or any other 1 or 2 shot pistol. For that matter, I'll never buy any single-shot firearm of any kind. I have nothing against them but I want more rounds at my immediate disposal.

Lorcins, Ravens, or those types of saturday night specials. There is no need for this type of junk to ever be in my possession.

F.LLI Pietta Legacy Puma PPS22. Looks good but stovepipes and is a pain in the a** to remove the trigger group to field strip to clean.

I agree with pinstripe 100%. Anything from the Jennings group is not only poorly made,they are likely to blow up in your hand. I would never buy one of these guns. I do have a Hi-Point that runs very good. I can see how a lot of people would not buy one of these. It's a brick with a trigger and very ugly.

from the first time I had seen them on the market, they just don't seem to be a handgun that I would want, mostly made of polymer...that's not what I like, I want a sturdy gun. I know, I know, I am going to get some replies on this. BUT I DONT LIKE EM PERIOD

I am proud to say I wont put a gun on a list.

You guys think it would be fun to load a hipoint c9 with a case full of powder and a 147gr bullet across a chrono(remote fired of course)?

Never write off a gun.

For me it would probably be Glock. I know they have a great reputation but they just don't fit me right. I would really like to know how many of you posting to this thread are going from personal experience and how many are going purely based on hearsay.
