For me, any Glock or Hi-Point. Not because they are bad guns, they aren't. I just don't like them. I don't like the way a Glock fits my hand or the grip angle. I don't like the feel or weight of the Hi-Point.

I'll never buy a potato or rubber band gun. All others are fair game.

Anything by Para Ordnance.
A .44 Magnum. I'm just not up to it anymore.
Remington 870. Good shotgun, but the stocks fit me horribly.
Another varmint rifle. My wife would put it to good use. On me.
And while I admire the work and materials that go into the Uber-Expensive firearms ($5,000 and up) I just can't justify the expense/benefit to myself.

Anything gold or nickel plated, or has a highly patterned case hardening. Also a Desert eagle; I just don't see the point.

Glock and 1911 here as well.

Glock no fit me, feels bad and points high. 1911 way overpriced, too heavy for CC(compared to lighter guns with better features), unreliable in many cases unless you drop big $$, sick of reading about the exact same gun over and over in magazines.

Eveyone that I agree with is a genius, and everybody I disagree with is clearly a moron!

Beretta 92FS-Only nice quality was that we could joke about throwing them at the BG, followed by the mags, once it jammed.....

They're not the only ones. I'm withholding judgement myself... I'm of the opinion that the 1911 is a little outdated and that you could do a little better. If in .45, why not in Ten?

Oh yeah, I forgot the Beretta 92FS. Ugly gun that's too large for a 9mm.

You guys do realize that the original question asked "What gun and WHY", right?

They avoid the why part so that when they jump on the band wagon and say "Glock", they don't have to give a reason, either because they don't have one or it's too stupid to say.
