Taurus Millennium pro 9mm. Hated the straight 8 sights and the trigger. Sold it and used the proceeds as a partial payment on a Springfield XD9SC.

Polish Radom P-64. Nice carry gun but underpowered and still beat up your hand to shoot it. A burglar got mine and I never bothered to replace it.

AccuTek 9mm...I was testing it out with CorBon JHP ammo and had a part break that I didn't know about until I pulled the trigger and the slide flew forward off the frame...thank goodness it didn't fly backward!

For Christmas 1968, Dad gave my brother and me matched (sort of) sets of Winchesters. Brother got a Model 88 in .308 and a Model 250, .22LR. My pair was a Model 100, .308, and Model 290, .22LR. Dad had been a factory rep for Winchester from '48 until he was recalled to the Air Force for fighter pilot duty in Korea and remained in, going regular and careering it. Brother's set is still in the family, in my custody actually. And I still have the 290, although it' something of a safe queen. For years I tried many combinations of ammo and scopes trying to get anything resembling accuracy from that rifle. In '73 a friend decided he needed a higher caliber deer rifle and wanted to buy mine. Took us maybe a minute to come to terms. Of course, a few years later the "do not shoot, no fix available" order was issued for it. Although after-market fixes are now available, I have no regrets about selling that rifle and don't miss it a bit. In fact, I used to tease Dad about not getting the memo on post-64 Winchesters.

Smith & Wesson model 5906. Yeah I know, the 59 series was a workhorse for S&W. The pistol was reliable abut I couldn't fire it accurately. My friends could. I sold it to my dad and replaced it with a Ruger P944. I had much better "chemistry" with this gun.

Kahr P380 Never could get the thing to work, even after completing the recommended Kel-Tecish "fluff and buff". The few times I could run a magazine trouble free, the trigger guard beat the hell out of my finger. Dumped it for a loss.

Gee, over my 40+ years of gun ownership I've got several. But for the sake of time:
Kel-tec .380, most unreliable gun even after 300 rounds and "fluff and buff"; Charter Arms .44 Bulldog, plenty of hammer bite without the accuracy to be worth it; and finally for this time, Para Carry 9 LDA, I loved the gun and double action, but it couldn't group for crap no matter what ammo I used.

Oh, and just support the originator, I sold both of my AMT .380 backups!

Worst gun: Zastava Mini-Mauser. Follower spring broke after 25 rounds and took a month to get a new part.
Every time I shot it something would break it got to the point that ATI customer service knew me by name ,not very accurate for a Plinker either . There are guys that sware by them that is after they change everything ... If you look on line they sell for cheaper and cheaper they may even be free soon. I've owned some inexpensive guns before but this one was just plain junk!

Years ago; a Romanian SKS; after awhile I just had to ask myself "Why in the world are you lugging this overweight & overrated Communist POC around? Sold it; used the bucks to purchase a sweet All-American scoped Marlin 336w "Meat Gun." As "Wind in His Hair" stated to Lt . John Dunbar in the film Dances with Wolves...." Good trade."
