    Or anything else besides 1911's, keltecs, and bersas.


    Pretty much everything (hk, sig, glock, beretta, Kahr) has been fine except for a kimber 1911. After 800 rounds it was an awesome pistol, but that first 800 was a nightmare.


    1911's are clearly the worst offender here

    Sig 238 HD had to make a couple of trips back to Sig, pistol got replaced. It was gone so much that two things happened...

    Sig got a new slogan: To New Hampshire and Back Reliability

    And as I couldn't carry that I made due with other guns so that when the gun was replaced I didn't really "need" it any more.

    Ruger LC9. After less than 100 rounds, the front sight moved significantly to one side of the frame. Ruger replaced it with a newly designed pinned front sight on a new slide, but why did they sell me a brand new gun without fixing a known problem with the sight? It made it that much easier to get rid of and get the new XDs

    Don't worry, like everyone else, they are out there. Visit G.... Talk. I did when I was considering one and was surprised by what was out there. But, truth be told, some manufacturers have more than others, but they all can have their issues. I'm still considering one though, as well as several others.:)

    Taurus TCP 738 "B" serial number.
    3 trips to Florida (repair) for extraction issues, and now it's working great.

    The downside, for every 1 week it was in my possession it was in the hands of Taurus for 6.... that's a lot of away time, so luckily it wasn't my only carry option.

    PF9 is putting up quite a showing here as well.

    Bought a Sig P229 (.40) back in '98. What a great carrying/riding sidearm! Loved that gun...... until I brought it to the range for it's intial 'break-in'. Ran perfectly for five to seven rounds, then....... FTF, or failure to return to battery, or stovepipe, double-feed..... just all kinds of problems. What a heartbreaker. (It made two trips to NH and back AND several to SIG authorizied armorers/gunsmiths)

    Long story short, after spending dang near what I paid for it to get it fixed (and ya'll know SIG 'likes' their firearms) I traded it for a Ruger P95 (9mm) and a few bucks cash. That Ruger was ugly, big and heavy, but that thing NEVER malfunctioned.... ever. A streamlight added a little later on and that was the perfect HD sidearm.

    I have never touched or thought about purchasing another SIG.
