    I was at my buddies gun shop just this week. A guy walks in with a nice looking box and asked my buddy would he like to buy a brand new gun? The guy sat the box on the counter, and my buddy saw "Lorcin" on the outside and without opening it, just politely pushed it back towards him. My buddy told the guy that if he were to re-sale it and make a few bucks profit, that it wouldn't be worth the aggravation of it coming back in his shop for the predictable problems it would give someone else. "No thanks"

    Mine was a 9 shot Charter Arms 22 mag snubbie. It was so out of time that it would hit 3 out of 9 shots and leave firing pin marks on the cylinder on the other 6.

    Another ex-owner of a RG here. I got it in some sort of a trade deal years ago and only kept it until I could find a sucker that wanted it for a few bucks.

    FIE .38 derringer. Paid $20. It works alright for it's intended purpose, but it isn't pretty and it sure isn't any fun to shoot.

    AMT Backup .45. It had such a hard trigger pull that it took two fingers to shoot it. Couldn't hit a barn with it if over 20' away. I traded it in on a Kimber. Maybe that's why I like the Kimber so much....

    I guess it would have to be the Darwin Pistol I bought for my ex-wife!

    The cheapest gun I've bought was Lima's Bersa Thunder .380 for $150.

    The only true POS gun that I've had was a Llama Mini Max .45, after it got axed, I got my Para NiteHawg.

    I too have a "little" RG 23 (.22 cal). I bought this gun from my buddy for $20. I needed a little "varmit" pistol as we tend to trap alot of opposums and raccoons here on the farm and I got tired of luggin the rifle out to take care of "bussiness". Granted it probably isn't the best of quality but I really do not think it's a piece of junk either. It works fine and does what I got it for.

    Back in the early 1960's, I used to mail order some for around $10 for 22 short.

    Probably the most worthless I have is a Colt No. 4 Derringer in .22 short. The ones made back in the 1960's. Different variations were termed "Lord" and "Lady" derringers and they came cased. Still, because of the Colt name there's a collector's demand for them out there. Not for this one however. Was a gift from my brother-in-law and sort of shop worn when I got it. I've had good fun with it shooting at cans and weed heads on occasion.

    The cheapest SemiI ever bought was a glock 35 for $280 I would exactly say it was a piece of junk.

    The Cheapest Revolver was a Taurus 850 CIA it ran flawlessly.

    NO I take that back.

    I got A Glock 19 for $175 dollars.
