    There are many threads here about which gun or caliber someone would buy. Sometimes it is three guns, sometimes it is five guns, there are even one gun threads. I am asking for the opposite.

    What are five guns that would be the last guns you would ever buy? Don't just include obvious junk firearms, but maybe even guns others might have or want.

    You do not have to be model specific. It could be a certain style of gun that you wouldn't have in your safe even if it was given to you.

    Here are five guns that I would never own.

    1. hammerless revolvers

    2. lever action rifles with any type of safety device

    3. .410 shotguns

    4. thumbhole stocked rifle

    5. bullpup type weapon

    Numbers 1, 2 and 5 have to do with looks. Call me shallow, but I refuse to own any gun that I find ugly. Yes, they might usefull, their design might make them perfect, but no thanks.

    I recently bought a Henry Rifle. What I really like is what it lacks. It has no sort of safety or locking mechanism. It is a lever action made the way nature intended.

    If I need a lighter shotgun I would rather have a 20 or 28 gauge. They don't kick any more then does a .410, but they throw out a usefull pattern. My shotgunning skillls need all the help possible.

    So, what are five guns that you would never own?

    I like my .410s, and safety's on rifles, but I would have to agree with you on thumb holes and bullpups.

    1) Bullpups

    2) Thumb holes

    3) Rifles which use obscenely overbore cartridges

    4) Guns with funny-looking muzzle breaks

    5) Tube fed rimfires.

    Anything you don't want, I'll take off your hands. I never met a gun I didn't like.

    LOL, short of the bullpup, I've owned/own the guns you've mentioned. As long as they are in good working condition, I'm game for any firearm. However, my lowest priority guns are:

    1. Judge-too expensive to shoot on my budget
    2. .44 snubbie-expensive & uncomfortable to shoot much
    3. Big bore rifle-just don't need it.
    4. 12 gauge single shot--umm, no thanks.
    5. Desert Eagle-all of the above reasons :)

    Black or "tacticool" rifles
    Black or "tacticool" shotguns
    Black powder/flintlock guns of any kind
    Most pump shotguns
    Handguns in the 460/500 cartridge range

    Personally, if I didn't live in a subdivision, a nice 410 SxS from AyA would make a great tree-rat eliminator.................;)

    You guys are too picky...

    1) a stolen gun

    2) a gun used in a crime

    3) an unsafe gun

    4) an overpriced gun

    5) ... can't come up with a fifth one

    Lot of prejudice in this thread, I'm surprised. I THINK, though I am not certain,
    that out of the few responses above, we've collectively eliminated owning
    any gun ever made.

    Most .22s in long arm form are tube fed. The HK made back in the 80s
    and the 10-22 being exceptions come to mind, I am sure there's more.

    The Judge is fairly cheap, I picked one up for under 400.

    And the Colt SAA is American history.

    If I had to pick 5:
    1. A homemade copy of a copy, like a Pakistani handmade copy of a Chinese AK.
    2. High-standard brand firearms.
    3. Weapons of a non-historical, non-significant, non-useful caliber like the .30 Remington AR, which is a modified 450 Bushmaster, I think. The .30 caliber family was just fine with the 30-30, .308, and 30-06 even not including the 7.62x39 which pretty much does the same thing as this 30 Rem AR.
    4. Tokarevs. Probably not on these as well. Obscure round, not really into them.
    5. I don't care for gold plated anything, or nickel plated automatics. They look too much like you would have to aim them sideways or something.

    1: Un-safe firearms
    2: Firearms that require loading your own brass (rare or costly calibers)
    3: A transferable MG (I want I want I want, but not for the price)
    4: ?
    5: ?

    Dont knock the thumb hole stocks unless you dont have any thumbs. I find them much more comfortable to shoot.

    1. Kimber-heard too many horror stories
    2. Anything smaller than a .380 (and I doubt I'd ever buy a .380)
    3. A shotgun over $1200-just don't see the point of spending more than that
    4. A .50 anything-too much money to shoot and no practical purpose for me
    5. Anything Century-too many horror stories

    Other than that I'm pretty much good to go on just about anything.

    I will, however, shoot any of the guns on that list. I just wont buy them with my money.

    Me, too...

    1. Bullpups - the thought of having my face laid on a chamber when it detonates, puts me off a bit.
    2. Guns with built in LOCKS, ie, S&W - right up there with no-stab knives, cigarettes that won't stay lit, dish soap that doesn't clean, light bulbs that don't light, and ethanol.
    3. Plastic guns - rifle, handgun or shotgun
    4. Foreign made Military Surplus - FN-49, 7X57 the one exception.
    5. Never owned a 9mm, never want to own a 9mm. No reason, just pure prejudice.

    On the other hand, I love: my Ruger Hawkeye,Martinis and Ruger #1s, (especially the one in 25-06, with the custom thumbhole stock), the single action armies ($500.00) that put two of my kids through college, wildcat cartridges, and being old.

    P.S. Some judges and D.A.s have been known to "Recycle" long before recycling was as popular as it is today. I always thought it was better than having the guns destroyed.

    Springfield in the same category as a Jennings? I can't agree with that personally...

    I'd have to agree with BluEyes - if there's not something wrong with it physically or morally, you can give it to me!
