Hi Point






and for the lovers, yes I did make the mistake once and I would never tell anyone to buy one after that. It was a better hammer.

Jennings. My dad can get a couple of rounds off before it starts spitting live rounds out of the top.


He still tries to steal my Taurus after I let him shoot it.

Any High Dollar 1911. They are a great gun with 101 years of history, that owes much of its popularity to Jeff Cooper, and all of his articles for Guns 'n Ammo in the '60's & '70's. For around $500 you can get a Smith M&P or a Sprgfld XD in .45 and with the extra money, buy a bunch of ammo and practice with a better more reliable firearm.
And before I get slammed for '1911 heresy', let me say I carried a 1911-A1 in combat and had to use it twice during an M-60 failure. Like I said, a great gun and an historical icon, but not worth spending a ton of money on it.

I've had hundreds of handguns, and have yet to own a GLUCK.

My Tauras 9mm semi auto (copy of the Baretta) shoots perfectly with no issues.

For me the 'no buy ever' gun would be a Glock. The tupperware feeling just isnt for me I guess. Lots like them, I wouldnt own one, different strokes I guess.

Glock. Don't like the feel and don't like the fit and finish.

Hi-Point. I mean, really? Pot metal guns?

Anti: S&W Sigma's, hi-point, scared of Taurus plastic guns , not a big Glock fan (lack of safety reasons, they are reliable), Cheap 1911's

Pro: XD or XDm; Beretta 92/96; Springfield,Colt, hell Norinco -1911's (flame away on the Norinco, but I have or had all of these listed and it is just a nice as the others, flame ONLY if you've owned one.)

Never had an issue with Taurus handguns. I own a pt145 a 24/7 and a ultralight .38. No issues with any.



I 100% agree on the no hi point and Jennings. I picked up a used hi point for $70 at a show figuring I could keep it in mud truck or on the boat and if it got scratched and fucked up be it. After attempting to shoot 5 rounds it was a Target to pre ban Thompson .45.
