I personally love collecting small guns. When they decide to ban the ones you like, please don't ask to borrow one of mine. Hate for you to have to resort to a useless gun just because they banned yours

Oh yea....thanks for reminding me...I need to amend my earlier post, lol...

Bought a glock 21 off of the internet, when I picked it up from my FFL I knew as soon as I picked it up that It was not staying. I gave it away to my brother in law before I even shot it. Too big for my small hands, but dang it was accurate once we took it out.... Won't own another, just doesn't work for me.

Picked up a G19 a few weeks later, I like it more than I thought I was going to.

Because I think they're uglier than sin.

I grant that they're otherwise a top-notch pistol, with no real faults I can see in terms of operability, reliability, and accuracy.

I just won't buy one because I think they're coyote-ugly.

Taurus, Rossi, or any other gun that is "hit or miss" in quality.

Old school wood stock single shot 12 and 20 gauge shotguns. Waaay more pain than they're worth.
S&W semi auto handguns, NOT because if their performance, just hate the triggers.
Hi-point and Jimenez goes IMO almost without mentioning.
And honestly probably a few more I can't thing of right now, will add later if I think of them!

First I must say I own both of the guns I am about to mention. I own both a Bushmaster AR-15 and a Norinco AK-47.

Modern Sporting rifles. What the libs like to call 'assault rifles' I just have absolutely no interest in them whatsoever. They do absolutely nothing for me. In fact my AR-15 is not even put together. Give me a Weatherby or a Winchester any day. Or, better yet, give me a 10/22 or 121 The Fieldmaster. I just don't get the thrill of them. I would much rather go to the field with a lever action Marlin or an older Weatherby.

Any recent manufacture blinged out gun in a 'presentation box', plus they are almost always in .22lr.

The fact that it is in 22lr is its only redeeming quality.

I don't have a "never buy" as long as the price as right anyway. 50 bucks for a high point would be worth it, the 200 they usually ask not so much; especially with the value to be had in the 300 neighborhood.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Flimsy and crappy quality guns come to mind. I like simple and reliably. Might be why I own a couple of Mosin Nagant rifles!

One gun I know I will NEVER want to purchase is actually American made: The MAC-10 and MAC-11.

Why people start these grudge match threads is beyond me. Maybe the best pistol I own is a Taurus for example. It's never failed to do anything it's supposed to do through many thousands of rounds. It's super accurate and it holds way more rounds than would seem possible for it's size. And it has a lifetime warranty. What more could anyone possibly want in a pistol? Remember I have a Sig P220, a XDm, and a S&W 629 not to mention a Taurus LCP. I like the Taurus better than any of them.

I would never buy a 10/22. There are just too many people hurling heaps of hype on it. It's not the "best firearm ever made" as some would have us think.

That should stoke the flames real well around here. Oh goody. What fun.

OK you'll notice I was brain dead in my post and called an LCP a Taurus. It's a Ruger and a fine one at that. Ruger actually makes fine weapons. I just don't think a 10/22 is the best weapon ever made and too many people do. Anyway - ooops! That's a Ruger LCP I have.

Any Glock. Never cared for them. I have shot many, but cannot grow to like them.
My feelings exactly. They make a fine pistol, just not for me.
