I got rid of a Taurus Model 99 several years ago. It just didn't feel that good while holding it and never seemed to shoot well. I was a lot younger than so maybe that was it. It had me almost to the point where I didn't want another 9mm auto. I bought a Ruger SR9c a couple of years ago and I really like the gun it fits well and shoots well also.

Funny, I have a Taurus 92 and 99 and one of them goes to the range with me and a Beretta. I've never been able to fault a 92/99 from Taurus. Now some of the their other models I've had issues with and am never going to be a buyer.

Keltec PF9 - the thinnest, lightest & least expensive 9mm to CCW but that comes at a cost...slide is thin so cracked after 900rds (common).

Ruger LC9 - great pistol but I don't like heavy/stacking triggers - I actually use my CCW to target shoot not just an EDC. My LC9S has been perfect for both.

H&K .308 with folding stock.

It was my dad's project, a gun for the Yacht he managed. Tiny stock butt. A couple of shots and that was it, traded for a Ruger Mini. That was some time ago.

I remembered the Mini and got one for myself just last month.

Same here. A Beretta Tomcat (.32 ACP) has been threatened several times...actually, EVERY time I take it to the range. It flat out hurts my arthritic fingers to shoot after a mag or so. It's my problem, not the gun, but if I don't shoot it I'll probably get rid of it at some point. I keep holding out hope that someone will come up with a wider trigger for it (a trigger shoe? something!). That's the real issue for me. It has a very narrow trigger.

A Ruger No 1 in 416 Rigby. I always wanted to fire an African cartridge, and doubted my love of double rifles would ever come to fruition, so I bought a Ruger single shot. In reality, I loved that rifle and hated to sell it, but MAN did it hurt to shoot it. Too powerfull for me, I am sore no more.

Astra 357 - GSO.
Unnamed pot metal .380 - friend forgot it was in his luggage and gave it to me at the airport when I dropped him off. He never wanted it back, I never shot it, had a crack in the frame.
Taurus Model 66 - traded a perfectly good 22/45 for it. Sold to buy ...
Advantage Arms 22 conversion for Glock 21. Great idea, but barrel was bored off center. Replacement jammed constantly and required strong arm tactics to remove from Glock frame. Replaced with 22/45. Karma.
Ruger P345 - heavy trigger, heavy pistol, never could shoot it well. Better suited for carpentry.
Ruger 10/22 TD - maybe not a bad rifle, not particularly small when taken down, PIO drifted as barrel heated up. After that the 22/45 was more accurate.
S&W Bodyguard 380 - over priced small caliber, just not to my liking, replaced with LCR 357

GSO=gun shaped object

A late 70's charter arms .22 pathfinder. After a couple of shots it would start "key-holeing" the bullets. Clean it and start all over.

Had 2..one was a Lorcin nickel 25 Auto Saturday night special..the other was an RG31 38 special "saturday night special" as well...both junk...pot metal frames...good for about 20 rounds life span....deadly if you are a good aim and can throw a handgun hard enough to knock out a bad guy...both mail order...both long gone.

New England Arms single shot 12 ga. 3 1/2 " chamber.

Plastic stock,which I custom painted. Intended to be a Turkey gun,so lightweight and compact.

Day before the Turkey season opened and I am at camp with my new gun,one shot with a 3 1/2" shell,and that was it.Absoulutely the most awful recoil.

PSAK47. I bought the barreled receiver and parts kit and put it together. There were challenges outside what was normal. I fixed it, but the rifle never felt like a keeper. Didn't shoot it. I just didn't like it. It's now sold (this last week). I don't miss it. My Commie versions do just fine (and this is coming from a huge PSA fan).
