    Gotta add Raven to that list , better off throwing it at an assailant , more chance of hitting 'em that way.

    The worst pistol was a CZ52. It was huge, well built and sold with a non-functioning safety. That gun was the worst.

    My keltec ph9 and p3at both shoot perfect. The ph9 was a little fussy till I used blaser brass now it eats anything.
    My worst is my Tisas 1911 45, cheap and fun to shoot but I don't trust it.

    I have a Jiminez JA-Nine and it is for sure the biggest pile o junk in my safe. Only shoots every other time and keyholes what it does shoot.

    Anyone see or shoot a Clerke revolver? Calling it junk would be an insult to junk.

    The worst handgun is the one you left home in the gun safe!

    While they may not be the worst or unreliable, the "High Point" stable is the hands down winner of the ugliest gun IMO. A guy throws up in his mouth every time he unholsters it....probably frighten the perp into flight without ever firing a shot.

    I've seen more glock failures than high pint failures. And while hp are ugly, they are no uglier than a glock.

    I didn't read the article...

    I have had friends hat bought those little Jennings'; none worked well, all shot powder in your face.

    All the keltecs shot without flaw, but only shot a few boxes of ammo each.

    I have a 45acp hi-point, it has been flawless; but it is very heavy. If you need to run, the gun will pull your pants down... even when using a heavy duty policemans duty belt.

    I'll be buying a S&W SD40 VE for whenever I do carry; because of the affordability, and my trust in S&W.

    RG should be on the list of bad guns. The machine work was the of worst I have ever seen on a gun and it was German made ???

    My shooting buddy when I was in the U.S. Army had a RG 22LR revolver that would spit bullet shavings out from the cylinder/barrel gap on every chamber, yet an RG was used to shoot Reagan.

    My worst handgun was my first .357. A Llama Comanche that the firing pin would stick in the primer locking up the cylinder. Sent it back to manufacturer and after several months it returned with the same problem. Gone and good riddance.

    Back in 1967 my brother in law traded his Marlin 60 for a SA 22lr handgun. I don't remember who made it. It was nickel plated and a nice looking gun. You couldn't hit the target from 10 feet away. Back then I was by far the best shot of our group. I couldn't hit the target myself.

    My worst ever gun was a Walther PP by Interarms. The first time I tried to fire it, it jammed so bad I had to take it to a gunsmith to remove the cartridge. He claimed there was a burr on the feed ramp that caused the problem. Not wanting to trust my life with it, I put it in my gunsafe because it was a pretty pistol in stainless. Fast forward 20 yrs. My step daughter got her CCP & I had told her I would give or buy her any gun she liked. I took her to the range with a selection of guns I thought she might handle well. One of them was the Walther. I loaded them all up to let her test fire them. When she fired the first shot from the Walther, it jammed again, & again I couldn't clear it. She ended up with a Lady Smith. The Walther made one more trip, to the gun store where I traded it.

    There is no shame in throwing the gun. If you recall, superman always stood still when shooting the gun but would always duck when throwing the gun, go figure.
