    My "never buy gun" was a Glock for all the stated points, no thumb safety, plastic "U" shaped rear sights, points high, feels like a 2x4 in the hand, etc. Well I rented one at my local LGS and tried it out on their indoor range, walked right out of the range and right into their "Glock Shop" and purchased a Gen 3 G19! Love it as well as my Berettas, Stoegers, XD, 1911, FNS, Rugers, S&Ws, and CZs! Well like what happened after Sean Connery saying in 1971 that he would never again play James Bond, NEVER SAY NEVER!!

    "I" flamed "you" Astra? Where did you get that? You really should read all the post if you want to comment on it. I was talking about what Agsalaska, who said he wouldn't buy anything I liked. He was flaming me IMO. If not it sure seemed that way.

    My "never buy gun" is, was, and shall ever more be a Glock.

    No slam on their quality in any way. I just think they're uglier than sin and I won't buy one, no matter how good it feels or shoots.

    Now, if they were to put some decent curves of some kind on a few of their guns, maybe I'll change my mind. But so long as they look like blocky chunks, I'll continue to pass them by.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned the Taurus Judge or a Glock!

    Of course I did skip a lot of posts in the middle...

    Anything taurus.

    I tried it- to see if the internet rumors were true.

    ITs all true.

    NEVER AGAIN.

    ITs not bashing when its true. Some of you know the horror stories, some of ya don't. If ya can't search for it, and ya need this info- feel free to PM me :D

    What is with all the hate for Kel-Tec? Just curious, as I was looking at their RFB which seems all around an interesting weapon.

    No Tauras' or Ruger auto pistol. And basically any long gun over about 12 pounds fully loaded isnt worth my time/energy unless its full auto. For example: SAW or 240B.. haha

    HK, I've shot them, nothing to write home about. Who would pay $1,200 for a plastic gun?

    Browning Hi-power. After spending $900 for the gun, now you have to send her to a gunsmith for the magazine safety disconnect and trigger pull work. $1,200 total before you even shoot her, no thanks!

    No Kahrs. They are cheaply made and unreliable.

    I've owned 2 taurus revolvers, brand new from the store, both had minor kabooms on the first shot... I've owned about 8 hipoints, never a problem other than ugly and heavy with low magazine capacity.

    ruger all the way now, mostly wheelguns.
