Never say never.
Are there some brands I am not overly fond of, sure. Are there some brands that others here have said they would never own, but are sitting in one of my safes, sure are.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Ok that is depressing as hell, Oh well if I had only finished medical school. lol
If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
I said I'd never own any gun other than a DAO. Then, I went and ordered a 1911. Go figure. Now, I'll just say I'll never own a gun that I don't have the $$ for. Unless, of course, it's a gift. Hee-hee.
Ed Brown, Les Baer, Wilson Combat, SIG p210, Holland & Holland, Rigby, Westley Richards..........
No large pistols or revolvers, since i only use a handgun for CCW. No small 22 or 25 mouse guns either.
I would never ever, nope... never.... say I wouldn't buy any gun.
If I could afford it, and I wanted it, I would own it. What wouldn't I want? If the price was right for me, and I could afford it, I'd want it. Doesn't matter what it is.
I might not shoot it. But, I'd have it. I might resell it... I might keep it.
All that said....
It could be worse.

I may eat crow on this one one day (I know I know never say never). I mentioned Ruger. I must exclude the SR1911 from this list simply because it fits into my current buying trend (it's a 1911). It is in fact a possibility.

I have seen a lot of taurus bashers. I own many taurus handguns & have never had any problems with them. NEVER a FTF OR FTE, never a misfire. Nothing but reliable.
I'll never own a Red Ryder BB gun...
cause I'd shoot my eye out!
I'm sticking with the Glock platform for my EDC/HD needs until something comes along which blows it out of the water. And on that note, only totally new tech would be able to blow Glock out of the water considering it's Gen 3 9mm firearms are the epitome of reliability.
The only other platform I'd use for EDC/HD is the M&P platform.

S&W wind up revolvers, the ones made since 2001.
S&W M&P pistols.
It has been stated already; "I will not own a gun I can not afford" I'll stick to that!
I own a Raven 25! Shoots well! I looked real close at Hi-Point, I might just buy one!
I own Rugers and I'll bet my life on them! I own SIGs Love them.
I'll own and buy what fits my hands and works for me!!!!
I'll try not to say Never!
What works for YOU is right for you, not me. (Maybe )
So I'll not add to "The List", I'll vote with my dollars...

Rugers look inexpensive, and they ARE inexpensive. I have not owned one that failed to perform though. Time will tell since Bill is gone, but so far, they have kept the innovation up and the price down. I worry about the attention spent for the lawyers though. The first thing to go on my LC9 was the mag disconnect.
Taurus has come a long way since they began. Almost the reverse of Ruger. Rugers were always tanks, and lately they seem to have "slimmed down" to keep the cost, weight down. I realize that some models require that ( LCP,LC9, LCR )
I just hope they keep the tanks coming....SP101, Redhawk types. They discontinued the Security 6 line, which was excellent.
Time will tell I guess.
