Is that a .38? if so, how do you feel about the penetration issues some people complain about the round.

Mine's a model 65, looks pretty much like that but it's .357 Magnum, thus the Magnaport. It's a hoss, but fairly compact. I like the feel, too, but the trigger pull is not for the weak of hand.

The one's that didn't go BOOM!!!!!! When I pulled the trigger.

Best and worst is a point of view. I own a hi point c9 never had any major problems with it a jam every once in awhile.
I have a S&W sd40 ve-std and can't stand it jams and uncomfortable to shoot.

What was wrong with it? I figured revolvers were generally good-to-go compared with more finniky semi-autos...


The biggest problem is it was military issue and most likely warn out. I could not hit a thing with it unless I stuck it in the guy's gut first...Now with my Glock .40 I can hammer a nail at 50 feet.

I'm not very fond of the military Biretta 9 mil either.

I've got one I actually really like. It lives in the desk drawer at work. Mine's magnaported. I admit it's overly heavy, and the trigger pull is atrocious. And you have to clean it a lot or the thing is even worse on the trigger pull.


I got the automatic S&W bodyguard .380... Longest trigger pull I have ever seen, I think it is about 4 inches
...and at about 14 pounds on the pull... 1/2 the people who buy it can't pull the trigger. My 11 year old couldn't and he is big for 11.

Well, firing the thing's about like pulling the clutch lever on a Heritage, but for some reason I like that pistol. You will never have to worry about accidentally discharging it, that's for sure.

I've read reports just like yours. I bought one a few weeks ago and like it very much. I hope I don't run into any of the issues you reported. I've put about 200 rounds through it without issues, knock on wood.

I had a AA arms Ap9 which is essentially a tech 9. It was good for throwing money away but that's about it. Aiming was ridiculous and it jammed frequently. It was irritating as hell. I also have a Sundance .25 that is a jam specialist. I've worked on it and it's better but still worthless. My youngest likes it so I keep it.
I enjoy shooting my Taurus .380 and my Charter Arms .38. They're great carry guns and we can pop clay pigeons at 25 yards. They do their jobs and that's why I like them. My 14 year old daughter is a GREAT shot with the .380 but the 11 pound trigger pull on the revolver is too much for her.

I had a few clunkers myself.
Cobray MAC-11 9mm. Like a prevoius poster said about a MAC-10. Way over-sized, inaccurate and poorly made. Now this was a closed bolt, semi-auto. Sights were almost unusable, Zytel magazines failed often, trigger slap when firing, and it did jamp even with ball ammo.

Norinco 213 Tokarov, this was one with the add on safety. Very poor build quality. The extractor and spring flew out while firing. Add on thumb safety could cut your hand. However,it did shoot all ammo put into it. This one came with 9x19 barrel.

Kel-tec P3AT. .380 auto that would jamb after almost ever round fired. Sights that were almost non-existent. Need a laser to get any idea where it might hit. Make that first shot a good one as it will probably not work for a second shot.

My trusty Walther P22 failed on me today. Firing pin broke.
Happens to the best.

Worst one I ever used FOR ME .... the M60 machine gun.
Dang thing was too strong for me.
When firing, it kicked me all over my fox hole.
I looked like freak'n Private Benjamin
Total embarrassment.



Are you implying that you fired the M60 in wartime? If so in which war?

So when and where, did you, a woman, fire a M60 from a fox hole?

While it's not a 'worst' gun as such the HK VP70 I tried out had a long and heavy trigger-pull, maybe 15 pounds +!
So much was it that your point-of-aim would tend to shift unless you had a shoulder-stock fitted to it!

M16A2 service rifle. Pretty accurate, but you get one speck of sand in it and it jams. Maybe the 249 SAW. That was a jam machine, too.

The Beretta M9 was almost guaranteed to stovepipe of jam while qualifying(if i recall correctly that would be 44 rounds.....44*5=240, a perfect score for the Navy pistol quals)

Care to make a wager on hammering a nail at 50' with your Glock?

I'm pretty damn good with it...

I agree about the Beretta. I carried it about 15 years and had to qualify 2 times a year. You almost had to will the bullets into the target. Totally crap too. The day I got my first Glock and shot it, I was like DAMN this thing actually shots straight!

With the body guard 380 I pull it back a long ways then aim hehe. I have a hard time hitting an 8" target at 20 feet with it, so I guess it is a stick in the gut then pull the trigger type gun.

Since you are going to ignore my posts, I am forced to speculate.

So what happened here? A little slip up? Forgot that you are supposed to be a woman here? Or are you just a woman that likes to make up bs stories about firing M60's from foxholes?

An answer would be nice.


your post is bordering on sexist you know right? Ever hear of these things called shoot offs? Or or..maybe she was at a army base and was allowwed to squeeze off a belt or two? Stay on topic please.

as for crappy guns i owned. a winchester 16 gauge damn thing would about break your shoulder if firing anything above bird shot for some reason. i sold it for 50 bucks.
