    I had a walther p99 in 40 cal and just couldn't shoot it very accurately. Went shooting with my brother one day and he couldn't miss with it. One ragged hole groups every time. Usually we are pretty equal when it comes to accuracy.

    I tried changing the grips out and everything but this pistol and I did not go together. It was like trying to mix water and oil. Finally, the last time I went to the range with the walther and my brother and he was still shooting it like an Olympic champion I gave up and gave it to him. I just couldn't stand between them anymore. :)

    My cousin has a keltec 9mm that shoots 6 inches high above the sights max adjustment at 15 feet.

    I have come to know that I can't outshoot any of my guns. Like the computer guys say: I need to upgrade my user.

    I have more than a couple that include a Taurus PT101, Llama minimax 45ACP, and 1 or 2 more than I can't think of off hand. The reason I still have them, why would I sell someone something I know is faulty? It's not hurting me to keep them.

    This little toad, a Rohm RG10 in .22 short. I only keep it because it was my grandpa's nightstand gun. I don't know WHAT he was thinking! Can't hit a barn from the inside with it.

    I've only got one that's actually poor. Of course, my collection is biased toward long barrels and target sights, so perhaps that's not surprising. Even my P32, though, is pretty good by pocket pistol standards.

    The one exception, though can just barely be counted on to throw its balls in a general forward direction. It's a muzzle loading single shot percussion pistol that my granddad built from a kit. He called it the noisemaker. I can hardly claim it's useful, but still it stays around. I must be sentimental.

    Most inaccurate pistols still have a purpose- the fear factor! A gun aimed at me still seems to get my attention very quickly! So keep plenty around- one hidden in each room of the house, in the car, in the shed, in your shoe, in your drawers, etc. Its like they say about no oil in care engine "Any oil is better than no oil!"
    Actually another use, put them out to fool the burglars and keep the good stuff hidden.
    I also have an RG 22-almost accurate enough to hit a 55gal barrel at 10 yards, But not powerful to penetrate! Yes the fear factor as the ricochet almost hit ME! Some 30 years ago!
    My problem is I can't seem to part with any gun- so they just hang around. Its like being a kid in a candy store when I start dragging them out! I almost would swear they are breeding as I find ones I don't even remember acquiring.

    My most inaccurate, is probably a Charter Undercover (Model 73820)
    I keep it around because it was my very first handgun.

    My first CCW was a used S&W 469.
    Loved that thing for the most part. Would eat rocks if I could fit them in the mag, never failed to fire.
    But the grip was also the absolute worst fit for my hand. Comfortable but it would always shoot low and, inconsistently, to the right.
    I understood it was a belly gun and knew to limit it to that.
    Sold it as part of the trade-in for my CZ PCR, which shoots better than I do and carries a little nicer. Had it for years, and it will take wild horses to separate me from it.

    I would say my 'Reck LA Fury'.

    .

    Why not?
    Is it mandatory that every handgun I own make one hole groups at 300 yards?
    Can't I own some of them simply because they are fun, or interesting, or 'just because'?

    My most inaccurate gun is a Glock 22. I don't think I could hit a 5-gallon can at 10 yds with it. It shoots about 3 feet low at 25 feet. I keep it because I won't sell someone junk and I keep procrastenating that I am going to run it down to Smyrna GA to have them look it over. I can't figure out what the problem is. Probably will end up with a new barrel.
