    Hello everyone,

    Just trying to get your guys/ladies opinions on the best and worst pistol(s) you have ever owned, also It can be more than one...

    The best two pistols I have ever owned was the Glock19 GEN4, and the 92FS, both have great ergonomic's(the 92FS feels great to hold, and with practice is a tac driver) and in my opinion both are insanely reliable. The lack of accessories for the 92FS sucked.

    The worst has to be the S&W SIGMA SV9E, while the night sights where good the trigger pull made it hard to shoot fast, or accurate. Although it was very reliable, the trigger was trash.

    So far,

    Worst-HiPoint .9mm (sold it, no regrets) and my Ruger LC9, until it gets back from the hospital. :(

    Best-my xd40sc. I love that gun. Never had an issue.

    After 39 years of handgun ownership, the worst was my Glock 30.

    Without a doubt that gun cost me more time, frustration, and money (including testing with various, costly HD ammo) than any handgun I've ever owned.

    Best--my H&K P7M8; close runner up my Baer Custom Carry.

    Worst: probably my Taurus 627 Tracker that shot loose after a couple hundred rounds. Pistol that I thought I would like but really didn't--XDm 40.

    Worst was a Llama, I even managed to get a Jennings running but not that Llama.

    My best pistols all have some wierd numerals printed on the slides .... 1911 or some rubbish.

    Best IS my XD40 4" (love that gun > 800 rounds zero "0" issues)

    Worst is my XDs 3.3" (After its visit to the hospital it went from 80% reliable to 99% reliable, but still refuses to go into battery or lightly strikes primers sometimes).

    Best, XDm .40, with the Colt 1991 coming up quickly, with a tweek or two, it will be number 1.

    The worst by far was my first pistol, S&W Sigma VE.40. Jam after jam after jam, the front sight even bent to the right. Traded it for my old Mossberg 500 that I later traded for my 590.

    Best is my XD9sc....worst was a Taurus 24/7c DC. Sent it in to Taurus due to unusual slide damage/wear and it felt really loose after 500 rounds. Returned in under a week (awesome) with a new slide and a repair order explaining that the frame was cracked in multiple places. This bothered me to the point that I felt I could never trust it. I'm not totally against Taurus, despite what I went through, but their QC is definitely lacking. Great CS though, contrary to what you commonly hear.

    I had a Walther PPK/S. Very nice looking pistol. It was a jamomatic and jammed with almost every magazine. I sold it at a gun show.

    Best: Beretta Elite IA....god I wish I never sold that pistol. The fact that it's the only beretta that would fit my hands and that it's a pretty hard model to find.

    Worst: PPQ, it was ok, but its frame just felt more slick giving me that feeling of it slipping from my grip under recoil.
