I guess I ought to at least answer the actual question now. For me the worst would be a Keltec or one of the Taurus polymer guns.

Phew - glad to hear that CE!! Tho it does seem ExSoldier is not over keen.
The P95 was my first semi worth using for carry - and it served well in just a humble Fobus. I would still not feel disadvanatged even now to carry it, tho the SIG is in a class of its own IMO.
I have now and again carried the P97 too - another (I still think fugly) example of the breed. What I liked tho - and aesthetics are not paramount to me - is ther innate reliability and toughness. Neither P series has let me down .. oh I lie - put a spare barrel in P95 cos I had bought one off a guy - took a while to ''bed in'' - then fine.
So - a viable option for me - and whilst I shoot these P series relatively infrequently now - they still a have a place, with all their friends!!

interesting topic; makes you stretch the memory. my pick for worst would be an old Webley in .38 cal. i can't think of anything i'd rather not get stuck with than one of these old dinasaurs. however, they must have had something, since the British army enlarged the empire with them.

The least I would carry would be the last gun I sold, the best would be the last one I bought.

Thanks for caring, Euc. I missed this line the first time, and you're right, we all have the need for personal safety and security.
Tourist, Any sane or insane person would.
Another aspect here we should address. There's nothing wrong with saving up and buying that Model 65. If money is that dear, a similar 64 could be had for immediate use. Maybe you have to sell that collection of Lawrence welk polka music. It's a hard world.

I believe this gets my vote as well. As mentioned elsewhere in another thread, I shot one of these in the 80's and disregarding it's unique configuration and sufficient caliber, it failed miserably the criteria I use to rate a gun.

Has the discussion here altered your choice, confused you more or just confirmed your thinking?
If you bought a new gun, or sold the old one based on info here, what are the details?

That has to be the Charles Daly 1911 EMS. If I HAD to carry that thing, the first shot better be a stopper, because it will probably be jammed up after that. Junk

Let us know what you think of this baby. I think wou'll be very very surprised. 9x18 or 380 ? The Mak has to be the best buy out there !

More of an excercise in amusing myself Tourist. Personally I've not been swayed one way or the other.

And such a thing is useful for purposes of maybe having a designated spare or beater. For instance say I'd like to have a handgun I could stow permanently in my truck toolbox and forget about until I felt like shooting it or it was needed.
