Mine was a Glock 26 Gen 3. I could shoot it well and nothing wrong with it. I just did not like the grip angle...at all.

Ruger lc9, just couldn't master the trigger. I liked the size, weight and feel so it was replaced by a lc9s and is my edc.

That was enough of that crap. I traded it for a Kawasaki 125 dirt bike. GOOD TRADE. less chance of getting killed on the dirt bike, and the bike never singed my hair or put powder burns on my neck. That rifle was a dangerous piece of junk. . lol.
I bet someone screwed with the trigger in an attempt to make it lighter. SMLEs are generally extremely good guns. I have a No.4 MkI*, and it is an exceptional gun. I'd like to eventually get a sporterized Enfield and turn it into a custom hunting rifle.

That's odd, my old Model 66 has a trigger that would give S&W a run for their money.

The only gun I'm glad I got rid of was a CZ-52. It had a host of problems. The slide would not always stay locked back, especially when you released the mag. It had a tendency to slam forward and scare the crap out of you. The barrel was also worn and accuracy was non existent. I didn't want to deal with the issues of getting the barrel replaced, so I sold it at a lost and used that money to buy a surplus rifle. I loved the round it shot though, so I'm getting a Tokarev to replace it.

My best mate has shot his Taurus 357 over 20000 times, and go shooting with him often, Not my cup of tea but he has had this wheel gun for 20 yrs and shoots HOT 125 grain rounds through it.... Must have got a good one

I recently traded my S$W 638 to my niece, for her stainless SR9c. She wanted a revolver, and I had no use for my 638 anymore, as I found a comfortable way to carry a larger, heavier revolver that was chambered in a caliber with more power.

I liked the 638, but for me, there were better choices, so when she asked if I knew anyone who had a small, light 38 she could carry, I knew who did.

I have wanted an SR9c for a while, and had made up my mind if I were going to carry an autoloader, it would be a stainless SR9c.

It was a trade everyone is happy with....

The only one I got rid of is an USP 9mm. And I'm glad of it.
But if I could, I would get it back...
Even if it was an awesome gun, its substitue is better than it. I named the P30 v3

While I can't say that I was "glad" to get rid of it, the only pistol that I have been truly disappointed in over the years was a Kimber 1911 Ultra II. Even after a couple of trips to the factory, it continued to have ongoing reliability issues. While I really wanted to like it and carry it, it had to go as I just couldn't trust it .

Jlandis003 is a jewel in the roughJlandis003 is a jewel in the roughJlandis003 is a jewel in the roughJlandis003 is a jewel in the rough
Here are four that come to mind...


SCCY CPX-2 9mm Jammomatic (I tried and tried and tried to cure it)

Diamondback DB9 9mm... chunky, ill-fitting, bad-grip-angle block of plastic (may fit others... Didn't fit me)

Poorly engineered Marlin XT something or other .22wmr rifle with sharp edges everywhere

Ruger SR-45... not my cup-o-tea... Loud, plastic, too skinny, too light for a .45 (Got the SR-1911 and love it)

I unloaded a Remington 597. It never would cycle an entire magazine without jamming. I stuck in the closet for years and never used it. A few years ago I figured I give it another chance after tweaking it and all of the other advice on RFC forum. I even tried different magazines and ammo. I traded it in for a reliable bolt action Savage.

Old thread but fun to read. Glad only gun mentioned I own was the taurus pt 111 g2. My only taurus, bought it Black Friday for $159 after the rebate. Shot a few hundred rounds from it with nary an issue. I'll easily get my money's worth and for the trigger it's good compared to my sp's. I think a thread like this is very informative. Goes to show everyone makes some lemons.
