one of the original S&W Sigmas.
Honestly, the first gun I bought. A Springfield XD 3" SC. 40 Caliber.
Constant FTF and FTE, sights were off BAD from the factory.
The best however: Walther PPS in 9mm or my Ruger 10/22 Sporter Deluxe.
I thought I was the only one with an old Iver Johnson break top .32 that just sits in a case. I'm a bit afraid to try firing it until it goes to the gunsmith first. Not sure the repair bill to make it functional would be worth it....
It was a family "heirloom" so to speak.
Love my Beretta 92FS(my EDC) and I loved my CZ75b but sold that to a family member.

Kel Tec PF9.
I don't carry a gun to look for or start a fight. I carry one to finish a fight I never wanted to be in.

It would have to be the Kahr P380 I purchased a couple of years ago. I really wanted to like it! But it was by far the most unreliable piece of junk I have ever owned. After sending it to Kahr multiple times and it still not being fixed it went the way of the Dodo bird!!!

OP, I think the Jiminez JA-9 is the all time winner for guns i've taken off of BG's. That thing is a total lump! I feel your pain! I've never shot one, and I never want to.
Although I dont hate it, my PPK is my least favorite. I just HAD to have one. It's so good looking, it MUST shoot well, right? I put a box of 50 through it, and its been in the safe ever since. I take it out once in a while to finger-fondle it, but I get no enjoyment out of shooting that sucker.
A KelTec P3AT - Awful!!!
Carry: Sig P238
Home: Stoeger Couger 8000F 9mm
I don't have a worst gun. I own a Glock and a Sig, both are high quality weapons.
Carry Gun: Glock 19
Haven't had a bad handgun yet, my worst firearm was a Mossberg Palomino .22 lever action. No exposed hammer, you couldn't decock it, and the firing pin would snap constantly during normal firing. A really good local gunsmith tried to fix it and finally told me to get rid of it. Hello 10/22. That was maybe 1987?
All of mine are good, but my U22 and 10/22 have fallen by the wayside for my Mosin-Nagant and my G19. 9mm and 7.62x54R are inexpensive enough that I can shoot as much as I want without needing to break in to my stocks of .22 LR.
my worst gun so far is a kel tec pf9. now i got other kel tec pistols (p11x2, p40, p3at, p32) and they all work with no problems. but this pf9 has been a pain in the butt. i have change out every part on the gun, except frame. even change the grip with a new one from kel tec. also sent the barrel/side back. took the gun out to day to run some ammo and the assembly pin head broke off (second time for this). i have been working on this gun for months. i can say this gun gives me something to do. my glocks don't, they just work.

I came up with an old AMT backup 380. It had the worst trigger imaginable on it. It took a strong man to shoot it. The gun was stolen...report filed and I'm glad to see it go.
Check the manual of arms on the Jiminez, dude. One of my students had one and there is no way, under stress, that she could clear a jam (which it did a lot). When she needed it, it did go off twice. She shot the ******* in the heart and the lung, then having not heard the shots she thought it was jammed and did what I told her to do--she threw it. She hit himin the temple and he went down.
He survived, by the way.
