    I can't say "worst" firearm, maybe a bit of a cheap one though.

    On a whim in the early 1980's I bought an FIE Titan .25 acp and to this day, I really don't know why. All my other purchases had been S & W handguns.

    Yet, I still have it, shoot once in awhile, it fires any ammunition flawlessly even for a $50 pistol.

    Thank the Lord it was not a Raven or a Jennings. Then I could say "worst".

    Kel-Tec P-11 needed a block and tackle to pull trigger, traded it for a Ruger Security-Six.

    I bought an EAA Witness Elite Match a few years ago that was an absolute turd. I sent it back for work and it was still a complete turd. The EAA techs were so rude telling me that it was my fault the gun sucked because I shot cheap ammo in it (WWB). So I opted for some more expensive stuff just to test out their theory. Nope it still sucked.

    I normally wouldn't bash a gun that didn't work but what really made me mad was the EAA folks. They sucked.

    Never, EVER buy anything from EAA.

    Well, I don't consider any of my guns to be "bad." However, the only gun I've ever had any trouble with is my Taurus TCP738. It has since been repaired under warranty and working fine.

    The only other gun that has trouble is my antique WW-II era Sauer & Sohn 38h. However, I am 99% sure its problem is due to the aftermarket magazine.

    I had a Heritage Stealth in 9mm. These were early striker fired weapons. The guy that designed it went on to develop the S&W Sigma. This pistol was a gas operated design. Shooting more than a few rounds caused the gas system to foul and jam the gun. Also, the striker was held in place by a retention piece that twisted a half turn. I had read an account where the retention piece let go and the striker ended up in the shooters eye. That was enough, out the door it went.

    I like my firearms choices and don't spend money to acquire "worst" guns. When I was young I had good mentors to keep me away from cheap, shoddy junk guns.

    Seecamp. NEVER made it through a mag without some kind of FTF, FTE, FTF and the ONLY ammo you can shoot through it, Silvertips, keyholed at even 10 feet. TOTAL junk.

    Had a Star BM 9 mm pistol (from Spain) and it was a pretty 1911-style but would stovepipe all the time. It was older and had 3 mags/ none of which were any good! I'd get 1 out of 4 shots to fire and it wasn't ammo as I tried many types and brands and none worked!!! Got rid of it and now have my Stoeger Cougar .40S&W and it's perfect!!
