    Kimber's: Sorry Kimber lovers there is just something about buying a gun made in a place called "Yonkers", New York bothers me. I know that's judgmental, but I am from Texas and I really don't care!:D

    I have a bit of a smile at the name Bohica. In the I have heard the term "BOHICA" millions in the navy of times and it meant something a bit different.:D

    I have been on the fence about a glock. They do interest me, but since I reload 100% lead cast bullets i think a glock would be a gun I would pass on everytime. I know there is some debate on shooting lead from glocks, but I rather not go through the trouble of finding out myself

    Glock 26.

    The grip is just too small.

    I refuse to carry something I don't shoot

    LA....Lower Alabama, I think. The tinfoil confuses
    For me, it would be the desert eagle and hk mk 23.

    I have large hands, and I don't know who would fell comfortable holding those.

    I doubt I'll ever own an AK because I don't like the sights.

    Anything not Ruger, Smith & Wesson, SIG, Kimber, Beretta, Colt, CZ, Walther or 1st Gen Charter Arms will find it's way into my safe. NO Glocks! can't stand them, I think they're WAY overrated, though you'll never convince a glockaholic that their favorite gun in the world can't slay dragons and walk on water. No Highpoint's, or Tauri in my safe either!

    Never buy another Sig product.
    2 x burned and all in all they are poorly Q/Ced and the C/S is the worst in the Industry.
    If I see a Sig weapon on a gun rag I wont buy the magazine, thats how much hate I have for Sig.

    Anything made in china or anything DOA. I'll admit glocks go bang everytime but I can't seem to hit anything with one beyond 50 feet.

    Glock tops the list. They just don't sit right in my hand. Any Japanese made Winchester. Just plain un-American.

    I would never buy a glock of any kind for any reason.

    Although I can see why the police and sheriff's depts buy and issue them -- because they are cheap.

    If I were a LEO, I would buy and carry my own .45 ACP.

    Any firearm with a plastic frame or stock. If it isn't all steel and walnut I have no use for it.

    I can't think of a gun I would not buy if the price was right. I own more pistols than I can count including Hi-Point, Jennings-Bryco, Kel-tec, Browning, Ruger, S&W, Colt, Glock, H&K, Diamondback. The Jennings is a jam-o-matic and the Glock is about like the Hi-Point but much more pricey. The Hi-point 9 stays in the farm truck because I don't care if it gets scratched and bumped and it goes boom every time I want it to. I own shotguns from semi-auto to break action as well as pump and O/U 12 to 4-10g. Ak's(47 and 74) Ar's, SKS's, Mosin, Ariska military rifles. Remington, Savage, Mossburg:(, Winchester hunting rifles. 3 in-line black powder rifles. 18 different .22 caliber rifles from single shot to AR style. I am not willing to buy an over-priced pretty gun just because it has a name on it. My guns are tools and I use them unless they are "safe queens" for whatever reason.

    These Judge/Governor .410/45 Long Colt thingamajigs. For the life of me, I cannot see how anyone would purchase one but I see them at every place that sells firearms. Looks like marketing department gone wild to me.

    hi folks,

    aren't they all pretty sort of fun to own (at least for a lttle bit at the front end when you dig the buy?)-AND aren't we just a tad lucky to have the right to legally own them and decide they suck down the road?

    .....but my most never again would be a western field 16 with about a 17" pull-

    -I will not buy a gun I cannot shoot- IE, any 'collector gun' that's bore is so far gone it couldn't hit the water if I was swimming in it. It could be the rarest variant of a 98K or any other rifle for that matter, with the coolest markings, but if it can't shoot and shoot well, it is not worth my hard-earned money. Besides, my 1942 91/30 shoots better than a lot of 'top notch' rifles I've seen. :)
    -Any of the repro muzzle loaders coming from mystery shops in India or Pakistan- I've heard horror stories about these things, and the one that I saw and handled in person didn't look right or feel even close to what it should.
    -A 'tacticool' AR. I'm not discounting the AR platform completely, but I like my guns simple and stylish. For me, an AR would be set up only as a 'DMR' type rifle- good glass, bipod, 20" heavy barrel with a decent muzzle device. No lights, foregrips, lasers, can openers, etc. for me!
    -Anything that would look better in wood than in the plastic it's in.
