A 30-06. Made by Charter Arms. It's got a synthetic stock, it jams easily, and the scope that was on it when I got it was cheap and didn't work great.

I almost dumped it but ended up buying a decent scope for it and it's been my most dependable gun the last 2 years. I've just learned it's quirks and I couldn't be happier with my $250 purchase.

They did about 10 years ago.

Both my Remington shotguns were junk as was my sccy cpx2 but caught up with remington ammo though. Got out of them all and replaced them with better guns.

I've wondered how the SCCY guns perform. Every now-an-again I'll see a good review on them. Saw one guy who works there saying they put them in peanut butter, shot them out of a canon, ran them over, and it still fired reliably.

They're inexpensive and they're light.....

But just can't see putting my life in the hands of what amounts to an off-brand, bottom tier gun.

What's in a name? A lot, actually. For me, it's S&W or Ruger. No gaurantees when it comes to guns but that said, I'd rather go with something with a long and proven track record...... Not quite as particular when it comes to revolvers though.

I've had bad luck with AK clones.

Norinco
Maadi
Vector Arms

All three were lousy, unreliable guns... and the AK is supposed to be THE ULTIMATE gun that goes "bang" when you pull the trigger no matter what.

None for me as I'm quite picky about what I buy. Right now I'm in the "I'm only buying it if it's carry worthy" mode.

I just make sure to not be the guy who buys a new model when it comes out. That's why I'm waiting on the Sig Nightmare 1911 in .357 SIG to see if there are any bugs with it.

Neither ran well, both were a waste of time and money.
That's really surprising given their price points and seemingly cult like following on gun forums. Never handled or shot either myself as they're way above what I can justify.

Mosin-Nagant.


Nothing wrong with the gun. It's just that I had 10 or so already and said I wouldn't buy another plain-Jane refurb. Needless to say I did. I regretted it and then downsized my collection.

An early AMT .380 Backup (the single action). Never could get if to run through one magazine without a jam.

Traded it off towards a Kahr CW45, which has been a great little .45ACP carry gun.

I bought an Inglis Hi-Power sight unseen from a magazine. It was not in good shape upon arrival. Sold it at a gun show. Ironically, many years later I saw the same gun on a Browning forum and the latest owner had rebuilt the gun and it was stunning.

My brother bought a .41 Action Express chambered pistol. Interchangeable 9mm barrel type. He never used it due to the rare ammo, the .41AE. Finally sold it a gun show.
