Would not buy a Hi Point.

Never a Diamondback, Kel-tec, or Taurus
Taurus: Bought one, never again.
Ring of fire potmetal guns.
Kel-Tecs: Because Taurus taught me not to gamble on guns.
Honestly, my P250 is an absolute workhorse, I don't think I'll ever replace it. It's my only pistol and could very well be the only one I ever own. As long as it continues to function flawlessly it's everything I want in my gun.
Any of the cheap crap previously listed. Also, I'm not a fan of compacts or subcompacts. I just can't control them as well as a FS model. So, only FS handguns for me from now on. My EDC is a FS M&P 40 that I have no problem concealing, no printing issues, carried AIWB.

These are the ones I can rule out based on 1st hand experience:
Glocks. Not a hater, they just don't feel good in my hands.
Ruger LCP. Maybe all DAOs. Maybe all rugers. Not sure which one but I wasn't impressed w the trigger.
Polymer. Just a lack of experience on my part I guess-everything I own is metal. I am used to it.
Pink. Can't stand it.
None of these things are low quality imo. Just not what I like.
Things I don't want based on non-rational reasons:
XDs. My mom has an xd9 that she shoots once a year and keeps telling me it is the bestest gun ever made.
Berettas. Not pretty to me.
Hi-Point & Keltec
Not a fan of Kimber, so I'm adding them also
A Kahr anything. I had one that I bought new, and that was more than enough for me. Worst gun I ever owned.
I will not ever buy a Ruger. I understand they make a quality firearm but Bill Ruger sold out the American constitution. A sin I as a consumer will never forgive.
Jennings, Bryco, Raven, Lorcin, and customs from no-name gun smiths (thats an avoid, not a never).
