    Any Over/Under 12 Guage...already have three. Any Side-by-Side shotgun...already have 2. Any lever action rifle...already have three. Any bolt action rifle...already have four. Any Kahr pistol...already have two. Any S&W .44 cal revolver...yep, got that one too. Any High Standard .22 revolver...check, got it.

    The only reason I wouldn't buy any of these listed above is that I don't need any more duplicates...I'm running out of room in the safe. Other that that, I'm open to anything that propels a bullet or load of shot...or arrow...or rock....or.......

    You just need a bigger safe. That's all. :)

    Hang on a sec....

    I just needed to get my Nomex suit on.

    Ready?

    Anything polymer framed.

    I just love the steel.

    Personally, just about any striker-fired pistol, especially polymer framed. Nothing wrong with them per se, I just hate the feel of almost all of them, in some way or another. Usually the mushy trigger.

    H&K. As someone else here said, the best $1000, $400 guns out there. I won't buy them because of their customer service and the way they neuter their civilian-legal guns more than they need to.

    I'd quote Lorcin, but... I might need a weekend project I wouldn't care about messing up. :p

    Nice thread :)
    I have to jump in on this one because I made a vow with myself NOT to ever again buy a firearm based on price alone...I'm done forever with cheap guns, if and when I buy a firearm in the future it will be based on the weapons reputation for quality and reliability PERIOD

    I would never buy another Taurus handgun again. I had too many bad experiences with their products.

    I don't think I've got any "never buys," though generally I prefer relatively inexpensive guns to inordinately expensive guns. I think the closest I come to a "never buy" is anything in 9mm. I have an irrational hatred of that cartridge. But still, I guess I could see picking up a Marlin Camp Carbine in 9 if I found a great deal. I am also a Glock hater, though I don't hate them enough to turn down a good buy.

    On the other hand, I love Taurus. I've owned 3. Sold two of them, not because of any problems, but just because I needed the money. Still own one great little 357 revolver. Excellent gun. I'd buy another Taurus without any hesitation. Great value.

    A .25 auto. I would rather have a .22 when needed.

    Don't be a Glock hater!

    How many Glock haters are there out there? I just don't understand why or how you could hate a gun that will fire any type of ammo you feed it even after it is caked w/ mud? Any gun that can do that is sexy enough for me...hell any time I look at my Glock 17 it makes me smile because I know what it is capable of. The Taurus TCP I no longer have on the other hand gave me a bad taste for Taurus though. I never bothered w/ their customer service, i just got rid of the gun....from what everybody said about their customer service it wouldn't have been worth the hassle on a gun I wouldn't have ever trusted.

    There are several, although I don't understand it. I don't care for the Glocks or any polymer-framed gun, simply because they're just not my style. I vastly prefer wood and steel.

    That said, I can appreciate the polys for what they are, efficient, light, utilitarian, and - according to some folks I respect - reliable.

    I do find the multiple documented kabooms in the Glock .45s unsettling, but I've seen no evidence of such problems with their 9s or 40s.

    I don't hate Glocks; I just have no personal desire for one. If I found a smokin' deal on one, I'd buy with the idea of trading it into something of more interest to me, but I've had several guns that have come to me and left again with just that idea in mind.

    This is a great thread. I like that alot of people give their reasons for disliking/liking certain firearms. I'll be honest and say that I don't have that extensive knowledge of all firearms to say which I would buy or never buy. I served in the Army for eight years and wish I could own a few of the weapons I had the privilege of using during my service. At the top of that list would be the M60. :)

    I would never buy a Springfield, Ruger, S&W, Walther, Kahr, KelTec, Seecamp, Beretta, Wilson Combat or Glock.

    I think that revolvers are old fashion and I have no need for them.

    Auto-loaders are so unreliable,I would rather have an action that would work ever time, no matter the load or if I happen to be under water.

    I also see no need for a rifle or shotgun that has a barrel longer than 20 inches, no use with guns that are so long I can't get them out of the safe.

    Same goes for rifles or shotguns that have extremely short barrels, like less than 19.5 inches. I hate having guns in the save that don't at least reach the barrel rest.

    I think that synthetic stocks look cheap and I wouldn't own a firearm with one.

    Wood stocks get so banged up and look old fashioned. Then if you get them wet it can warp the whole gun! I'm not interested in having something like that.

    Other than that, I can't get enough guns!


    EDIT: I forgot, I also would never own a Kimber, Remington, Winchester, Mossberg or H&K. I can't believe I forgot about those my first time through.

    I was wondering if, my friend should get rid of his Jennings Nine. I will say that I think he has never shot the pistol. We however noticed that it has been stamped (by the facotry) with x's in the slide. My thinking was it was supposed to be a .380, but then decided the last minute to change it to 9mm. I was wondering if it was like a coin that has been double stamped, in that it is a collectable??? Any information would be appreciated. As far as guns that I would buy that I would immediately sell, that would be easy. Any AR-15 or the Jennings Nine. I owned a Jennings Nine for about three years, but only shoot it about 3 times, and it jammed on the second round everytime. I had an AR-15 for about three weeks, and felt that was three weeks too long. The thing always jammed. If jamming was relieable, then it never failed to do so, but on a serious note. My HK-91, AK, Ruger Mini-14, FN Forty-nine, and Taurus PT-1911 AR always fired and never had the jamming problems that the AR-15 did.

    Not a Glock HATER, but I can't see myself ever purchasing a Glock. Just don't like how they look or feel. However, if the price was right (well below average market value), I might convince myself to buy one, but would soon attempt to sell and make a profit.
