SIG GSR 1911. Beautiful gun with an awesome trigger....and total lemon. Its factory replacement (after 3 failed attempts at repair) is currently sitting in the safe, where it mostly stays, since between the time they turned out my lemon gun and now they've changed to comparatively unpleasant longer pull triggers. Too bad.
I have an Astra Unceta .22 short that won't fire two rounds with out FTE. I have tried stock and after market magazines but to no avail. I would never trust this gun to fire more than once. I should get rid of it but I'd hate to saddle somebody else with it!
I too love all my guns.
I WISH that I never would've traded/sold all the ones that I did in the years past. One particular sale that still smarts -I got rid of a stevens 16ga 25-20cal combo.Seems that a new woman in my life spurred the "impulse" sell....

Regrets include a pawn-shop WWII Webley .38 Super. My first revolver about 34 years ago. It was cheap and worth every penny. Talk about slop cylinder. But I didn't know anything and had no one to advise.
Currently, my worst is a Beretta 9000S-F. It's not a bad gun. Just doesn't compare to my S&W M&P 40c. Not as accurate to me. I bought it at a gun show on a whim.

Gottabkiddin, not that the Bodyguard has any slop, but could you not detect the forward / rearward "slop" in the cylinder before you bought it?
I read your thread of recent concerns about your BG. I guess that you accept that S&W designed the BG revolver with a flaw and are not pursuing with S&W, the standard of revolver and customer service?
I never wanted a Keltec and talked myself out of a Kahr until I realize they don't meet my standards.

I always carry two guns daily.
I had a Walther stainless .380, one of the first ones American made, that wouldn't work for anything. Feed issues, stovepipes, name it it happened.
Worst was a PWA Commando AR15. When it fired it was very, very accurate with one personal 5rd group being covered by a quarter at 50yds open sighted. But it liked to jam a lot, so I sold it to a coworker who didn't mind that and fiddled with it quite a bit.
One of the biggest things he found was an extra spring in the trigger group. Since I never take a gun apart that far I never found it. I miss the rifle, but I'm glad a friend got a gun he wanted and was able to make reliable.

I.O. Hellcat .380 is the worst followed by Kel-Tec PF-9.
No "worsts" here.
Kel Tec P11 is the cheapest, but was bought with a specific carry intent, for which it serves ideally.
Goes bang everytime me AND the rest of the neighborhood squeeze the trigger.

Back in the 80s is when I started buying guns. Knowing nothing about them I had my goods and bads.
Very first gun is the Jennings .22. Goes bang every time it doesn't jam or FTE which is very often. Took it back for exchange but the GS didn't have any more so I got a Raven .25 instead. Great shooter, reliable and accurate at 25 yards. Later I picked up an FIE Titan .25. Another great shooter, not as accurate as the Raven though.
Picked up a Dakota six shooter in .357. A copy of 1873 Calvary pistol and is a POS. Breaks too many parts that it's useless.
Picked up a Star PD in .38 Super. Great shooter but the rounds are hard to find and only can get reloads at the range. Got rid of it.
They're all gone but now I have a PF9 and a Sigma 9 and they're both great.
