    taurus. i bought a new tracker .22 at a show and when i got home the cylinder wouldn't even turn all the way around without help. it was all out of time too, took me two days of filing and honing to get it timed right. i will never touch another taurus.

    Revolvers that shoot shot gun shells, I just don't see the point. I have a shotgun for shotgun shells.

    Revolvers with no hammer, just looks really.

    Of course I wouldn't turn one down if I was given one, just wouldn't buy one is all.

    I just got my never buy gun, and man, I'm disappointed I let it go so long.



    Glock 21

    AMT .380 pocket pistol, took the hide off my hand every time I fired it.
    Taurus tracker 44 mag with a 4 inch barrel, way to much recoil, and the cylinder locked up all the time. I read someone put down KIMBER? I have the pro carry 2 and I love it.
    Any black rifles... I love the look of a fine wood stock, I can't stand the synthetic weapons.

    S&W Sigma .380.... I had one and about one half to 2/3 of the time, it spontaneously ejected the magazine on the third or fourth round. This problem persisted with all manner of different ammo and across three different magazines. It left a bad enough taste that I am not really inclined to try any other S&W semi either (but I have two S&W wheelguns I love).

    Haha there is nothing left!!

    Very interesting comments...amazed by some of the choices but if it wasn't for varying tastes we would never be able to find/get deals on what WE like I guess! ...hi-point fans must love gun shows :D

    For me...
    Ruger P89
    Smith M&P pistols- hate the trigger extension
    Anything 9mm+ that I can't get a full grip on...I'm sure I'll make that mistake again though

    For me, a better way to pharse it is "what would I buy in terms of brands."

    I've shot many things. Most are just fine but I can't/don't want to own every brand out there. I'd want to consolidate down to fewer manufacturers.

    Rimfire pistols
    Ruger

    Centerfire pistols
    Sig
    Glock
    for revolver Ruger

    Rimfire rifles
    I'm fairly open on this one as I like many brands of 22 LRs.

    Centerfire Rifles
    Marlin
    Styer

    Shotguns
    Mossberg

    voicomp, don't let the sigma ruin it for you, S&W 3rd gens and SW1911s are excellent,

    Will never purchase (and would immediately sell if given to me as a gift):

    1. Any "modern" semi-automatic handgun whose basic design has remained essentially unchanged for 101 years or more. I mean, c'mon, we've come a long, long way in handgun design in over 100 years.

    2. Any semi-automatic handgun that uses a hammer rather than a striker to ignite its load (see #1). Hammers belong on revolvers. Real pistols use strikers.

    3. Anything with the name Hi-Point on it.

    I just have to chime in on agreeing with all the Hi-point never buys. That is a cheap pos, would make a far better club, than gun, IMO.

    I call poo-poo on this. If you're referring to the 1911, it's design has yet to be bested. Maybe that's why it's been around and so popular for so long - even in calibers it wasn't originally designed for.

    Obviously, your mileage did vary.

    Yeah, I'm biased and opinionated.

    There are a lot of Harley owners who feel exactly the same way. Thank goodness there are plenty of firearms (and motorcycle) manufacturers who would beg to differ. ;)

    Oh, and to stay within the spirit of the thread, add anything from Rossi to my list.

    I'll buy any Gun as long as its the right price, although there are some for which that right price would never exceed $25
