1st post here Hi to all.
Any gun made by Kel- tec had 2 they both were dogs.
Same with Kahr had 3 the slide cracked on one the other two were nothing but problums.
Any Smith and wesson made after 96 using MIM parts and that dumb lock and they started pushing them out the door as fast as they can. Bought to many to list over the years and not one of them compares to my 640-1 357mag. Just sold off my last one.
Side note: all firearm manufactures sometimes put out a Monday or Friday gun but if you go to the Smith Wesson forum you'll read about all the guns that have to go back. It's a dam shame a once great company like Smith & Wesson putting out junk. They should just put the return lable in the box with the gun. Ok my rants over:)
I cant remember the model, but it was a old shot out S&W cop gun. Couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it... even from inside... Next was a Beretta 90-two, had it for about 300 rounds about two months... It was to cold to go to the outdoor range... Depending on what brand of ammo you were shooting is where it hit but never where it should have... Got rid of it and got a FNH FNX40 and its dead on with the same ammo...
No, you are not the exception. I made the same expensive mistake also. Mine was never reliable after nearly 1,000 rounds. Will never own another Kahr......
S & W sigma .40 long since sold it, shoot low and left sent it in could never shoot it accurately...
I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.
Kimber pro carry 1911... I'm not saying all Kimbers are like this but mine was a lemon!
Constant jams, FTE's, stove piping, etc. had it worked on and it still jammed, at least once or twice every 100 rounds.... Which isn't carry worthy IMO. I really really wanted to love it, but she just failed me too many times and I became unconfident carrying it. I'm now the proud owner and carrier of an M&Pc and after thousands of trouble free rounds I couldn't be happier. She's not as pretty as my old Kimber, but reliability absolutely trumps aesthetics. YMMV, no offense Kimber fans.
Amen brother. Proud owner of two m&P's with several THOUSAND rounds through and not a single hiccup. Or my brothers. Or my other brothers. Or my friends
OP, I had a Jimenez as well... I was young and had that "gun show itch", I couldnt bear leaving without buying something. The little Jimenez was around 100, maybe even less? Brand new. I should have known better.... I ended up giving it away to a Lib who finally "saw the light" living in Atlanta, Georgia. As a relative by law I told him to consider it a stop-gap until he bought a real gun. I guess it's better than nothing...
I have a little semiauto that shoots 22 short that was made in the 50s. It looks like a miniature 1911 finished in nickel. It was given to me by my Dad many moons ago. You cannot get through one mag without a jam. It is essentially a paper weight. It isn't even fun to shoot on the range because of the jams...and when it isn't jamming, you can't hit the broad side of a barn from 5 feet. Terrible gun.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
I have a M&P 9 and a LCP .380 ... So I don't have a worst... as I do my homework before buying, not on impulse :)

My worst gun is also one of my coolest guns. A Desert Eagle. You really need wheels on the holster for one of these things. Thinking about converting one of those old golf bags with wheels into a holster for mine.
I have yet to find a real use for this thing since I first picked it up in the mid eighties. It does make a neat door stop.
But you cannot deny the coolness factor!
