Wyoming-Parker 10mm - So much junk in such a crappy package!

Llama Super Comanche .357 - Great revolver, right up till I shot it.

LAR Grizzly .45WinMag - Bought one Summer for a Bear Hunting Trip in the Fall. Spent crazy PAINFULL time shooting and practicing and crazy money on a Hunting Chest Rig for it. Cabin and access to the area we were hunting washed out and no trip. Then the owner of the land sold it and the others in the group all moved or got married. Lost my shirt on that one.

Hi-Point 45. Cheap good gun but bulky and did jam once in a while on 8 rounds in magazine. Could only do 7. So sold it and got 1911. No regrets. Just upgrading.

Another came to mind that I didn't include in my first post, century draco pistol ak in 7.62x39. Now its problem wasn't function, it always went bang, but the front sight was canted so bad it couldn't be zeroed. It seems when it was assembled the front sight pins were drilled extremely crooked, and couldn't be corrected, which is a shame, I really liked it. But since I couldn't sight it in, it was useless except as a hip firing blaster. So it got traded, for something else, can't remember what now.

S&W Bodyguard 38. Not worth the time it takes to talk about.

I'll limit myself to two for now; but there are a lot!

1. SW59 -- a real life jammer that could not fail to jam one out of three or four times shot. This was in 1978.

2. Ruger Mark Series (I, II, III) .22LR semi auto. All of them jammed or failed to fire or eject. First one was in 1979 last one was in 2000 or something. I know it's sad but it happened to me three times with three different Mark Series. I know this is the gun that got Ruger into the business in 1949 but for me it was an albatross every time.

Remington 770 30-06 and a Mossberg SSi-one 12 ga.

The 770 was a nice looking gun, but just a total piece of junk. It jammed on me every time I shot it. I knew when I bought it that it was a bad idea after all the reviews, but I thought I would get lucky for a decent deer gun. WRONG. Got a Savage Model 11 .308 instead to redeem myself.

The Mossberg was lethal, but holy cow that single shot break action 12 was punishing when I used it for deer.

Had an old 444 Marlin lever action from back in the 70's when I used to work up in bear country. I also used to go bear hunting once a year with a couple friends. Hadn't hunted with it in years or shot it much (kicked like a mule). Was in great shape and got waaaaay more than what I paid for it on a trade in on a Remington 887 Nitro Express. Not much for selling or trading, but I wasn't using it and I got a little over twice of what I paid for it back in the 70's and my LGS had a buyer looking for one. Right place at the right time.

I have a few I deeply regret getting rid of, but I several that I do not regret one bit, I actually regret ever buying them. They are:

1) Diamondback DB9 (two of them, both garbage)
2) S&W M&P 340 .357 Mag (recoil was the worst ever, the M&P 360 was alright though)
3) S&W SD40 (terrible case support, scary really I wondered why it never blew up)

There were others I didn't care for, but those stand out as regretful purchases.

I had a Kahr CW45 and a Taurus "Millenium" 45

Both were clumsy to hold, poorly balanced, jammed at least once per mag, and were as accurate as a blind monkey with a slingshot.

I tried all variations of ammo I could. I had the Kahr at the smith's for a while because this mere mortal couldn't do anything to get the sights adjusted.

They both made more keyholes in paper than they did round holes.

I sold them both at a loss a the trade in counter at Cabela's and used the proceeds to buy a couple more 5-shot .38 special snubs.

I don't see a reason for me to own a semi auto pistol again, ever.
