AMT Backup.
Jam-o-matic and was the most inaccurate pistol I have ever fired. Traded it in on a deer rifle.

Jennings J22.
Another Jam-o-matic. Frame cracked after several hundred rounds. Got pissed and destroyed it with a cutting torch.

Cordite
none, so far. only sold one, and regretted it immediately.

Kimber Warrior SOC, too many FTFs for that kind of money.

Anything and everything with the name Taurus on it!

What a waste of time + $$ + headaches! I'm going to save all three (3) for more worthwhile endeavours!

Taurus Judge.

I bought it in college because of it's "coolness" factor. It lost its appeal after paying a ton of money for the ammo to shoot it. For a college student, that was an issue. I traded that thing for an SR9c and never looked back.

SR45 - Terrible trigger. Does not stage after first shot. Doesn't even function like a striker fired pistol.

I have never bought anything that was just a dog, or total POS. I tend to stick with major brands and stick to the "if it seems too good the be true, it likely is". So I seldom fall for the hype. Have however had several that did not live up to expectations as far as accuracy. Then some I just never really used that much. Have sold hundreds of guns over the years. Some I think, probably should have kept that, because it might be worth more some day, but then I recall that I haven't shot it in 10 years........needs to go.

Latest was a Grade II Browning, "takedown 22" that was mint. It was Japan built and not Belgium, but was still perfect. Had not fired it in 20 years and just not my "type" rifle. Traded it for a 9mm Beretta and cash.

Have a mint H&K 300 in 22mag that might be next. VERY fine gun, I just NEVER shoot it

A 1975 Colt Detective Special in 38sp....A beautiful revolver but had constant trouble with a shell casing stopping the cylinder from revolving..Sold it....When I have one problem with a gun, other than cheap ammo, I get rid of it..I'll never have total confidence in the piece again..

Taurus 357 cia.

First time shooting the wheel fell out. Shipped it to Taurus cost me $75. They fixed it and sent it back no charge. Sold it within the first week of getting it back, for a major loss of course. Took that $ added some and bought a 9 SRc. Couldn't be happier. Bro inlaw has the 357 Tracker. First 5 shots the front site fell off. He fixed it and still has it. Me I'll never own another Taurus again.

When I was young and dumber, I bought a used .22 short Derringer at an LGS for $25. It looked great, brass barrel, wood grips. It had no rifling tho and usually took 2 or 3 tries to get the round to fire. Gave it away with full disclosure.

I can throw another one on the pile....

I had a Mini-14 Stainless Ranch rifle in .223 that I could not get to shoot accurately no matter what I did. Had a hard time hitting a paper plate at 100 yards with a scope on it. Tried multiple scopes, changed ammo, etc. Other people could not shoot it well either.

Ended up selling it to a guy who just wanted a close range blaster.... it always went bang so he was happy. When in doubt empty the magazine...
