I think 10/22's are good. I've said so many times. I just would never buy one. I guess you wouldn't either.

Any Norinco, at least not from a dealer. I am not helping the Chinese Army make money if 8 can help it.
Or is my life better spent as the silent, alert, stalwart, invisible guardian of the free mall…

I cannot tell.

Taurus. Bought a model 85 revolver and a 1911, neither of which worked out of the box. Both went back for repairs. Couldn't trust them and sold both.

Have owned or still have Sig, Ruger, Smith and Wesson, Springfield, Kimber, Browning, Kahr, and Glock products. Never had to ship any of them back for repairs.

If someone gave me a Taurus, I'd take it to the nearest gun buy back program.

I have to agree with Taurus and I'm going to say any cheap gun, you get what you pay for. I can understand why I see Autoloaders on this thread. But not a remmy 700, I can't imagine unless one killed his dog.

I make it a point to never buy a gun costing more than I think it's worth.

A second imitation M-1 Carbine by Auto Ordnance. The first was brand-new, from "Guns And Ammo" in Memphis.

It was treated with care and the bolt became stuck, as in jammed, after only about 200 rds. of US factory ammo from Bass Pro. The same price (late '07) could have bought a nice Authentic carbine, had I considered a search for one.......no homework, none at all.

After it was shipped back to the factory, I finally noticed that the bolt in the GI versions felt more rugged. My very used Mini 14, 30 and SKS never had a stuck bolt: during 2,000-4,000 rds. in each gun. Both Ruger and "Commie Quality" are far superior.

I'm going to list two (2) and for very different reasons.

1- Taurus, I have one that has been an excellent revolver, but I've heard to many horror stories about Taurus's spotty quality and their lack of customer NO service.

2- Colt python, never owned one and I have no desire to based on price alone, no matter how well belt they were. I can't justify spending $1,500.00 ++ for a tool, which all firearms are to me.

Old Bear,

Taurus revolver I bought one, the only gun I had to get rid of. I did sent it to Fla.for repair they sent it back unrepaired.Never say never if you didn't have to pay a premium for a Python, would you own one? I would and I do. Taurus unless it was a good shooting 17HMR,maybe. Rather have it in a Smith.

Any gun that requires I do paperwork.
Shall - used in laws, regulations, or directives to express what is mandatory
Not - used as a function word to stand for the negative of a preceding group of words <ex. "Shall Not be infringed">

Anything that uses black powder. I simply have no interest going down that route.

Taurus Judge. Worthless IMO.

Kel Tec. They're local and would love to support them but bought one (9mm) a few years back and it blows - it's my last resort "junk" gun now. Echo the Taurus posts (don't care if anyone worked at Beretta previously).

My Rem 700 30-06 has been VERY reliable for over 20 years and my SIG 226 and 238 have been (literally) perfect (don't have a SIG 220 so can't opine on that specific model Master - would love to hear your woes to educate myself). My Ruger revolvers (an old Speed 6 and a new GP100) have been fine, no complaints.

My only problems have been shooting friends' cheap ARs. Mostly the uppers, as the lowers are effectively made by only a couple of companies so the variance seems to come down to triggers, et al in the lowers.

Boatload of pages here - seems all of us don't like SOMETHING. Rorschach test!

Echo that! Hard to get my head around that one - someone was bored.
