My list is topped by Glock and the "Ring of Fire" zamak specials.

Actually, I doubt if I will ever own a poly/striker pistol of any brand.

However, I might warm-up to a nice poly hammer by HK or Sig...

I'd never buy:

S&W Scandium revos - They are too light.

Taurus - spotty Q/C at best

Glock of any model - They simply don't feel 'right' in my hand, too blocky. I prefer a longer trigger reach and grip.

Any class III firearm - Who can afford to feed them?

Lot of people hate single shot guns, love my H&R survivor. My wife bought me a S&W semi auto 10 years ago before we got married, I cant stand over a target and hit it with any of the 16 or 17 rounds the mag holds. I married her and she gave me three boys that can shoot all of the great guns i own but ill never buy another S&W product.

I too enjoy a single shot, one reason I don't burn a bunch of ammo and it's also very accurate. My never buy again, beside Taurus is cheap very inexpensive guns. You get what you pay for. Certainly a good buy can be had, but a cheap gun is usually cheaply made.

I get the disdain for cheap guns - I won't buy them either.

Hard to believe the hate for some of the others. Perhaps ya'll are just a bunch of limp-wristed ninnies that shouldn't be firing real weapons. ;-)

A five year three month old thread ... I think this thread would have more credibility if folks posted pics of their bad choices, along with scanned copies of the purchase receipts for said pieces ... maybe a sample target or two, and the e-mail string of correspondence with the manufacturer's customer service desk ...

... Otherwise, all I'm seeing is a whole bunch of people teeing off on the guns that they perceive are easy to criticize.

I sorta feel that the CEOs of Taurus, Hi-Point, Kel-Tec, Remington et al really could care less that a bunch of anonymous folks on the internet say that they're not gonna buy their products. Sales reports from these companies would seem to indicate that the internet bashing of their products hasn't even slightly affected their profits.

Just sayin' ...

...except that not all posts have anything to do with a bad product or bad service...and nobody posting here cares what all those CEO's think or don't think about what a "bunch of anonymous folks on the internet" are saying about their products.

It's a string about your "never buy gun". No more, no less. Post your own, with whatever justification/lack of justification you wish.

Well, here's a classic example of what 72 pages and more than 5 years of posts has wrought:

And of course, nothing further. Typical of most of the posts in this thread.

I guess what I'm asking is, what's the point?

Cheap Turkish shotguns

I have an LSI Escort O/U shotgun. Broken firing pin at about 500 rounds. Now the cocking mechanism doesn't work after anther 500 rounds. It's been sitting in the safe broken for almost a year.

I think we've covered every firearm made in the last 100 years.

You're correct the proof is in the pudding. Taurus can go back in it's files see where I sent my revolver in, and got it back no fix. Traded it for a Browning Hi-Power++$. Cheap guns speak for themselves. Any gun you can trust your life to or a big trophy is worth keeping.

The point is to answer the question...and this person did. For whatever reason, he/she does not want to own any Taurus.

If you look at post #1650, I've my own entry. Granted, it's a wee bit more explanatory than what you've cited, but still...

Lot's of posts are more complete than the one you cited as a typical example. Take 'em for what their worth, whatever that may be.

Besides...good or bad posts, it's not as if people are actually going to read through all 1800 posts at this point. Skim through it a little bit and move on.

Better yet...post something of your own so we can see what it is YOU would never buy.

Any glock I do not like them don't want one around the house ..there are most probably a hundred pistols worse that I will not even look at .. I don't know who makes them but as a rule if it looks like a glock I will not even pick it up at a show to see how it feels .
