I had a ParaOrdnance double stack .45. I loved the feel of the gun, I have bit hands and it filled out great. Unreliable as hell. I was lucky to get a full magazine through it. Didn't matter what ammo. This was back in the mid 90's. Maybe they got better but Ill never have one again.
I had a P13.45. It was marginal out of the box. I did A LOT of shoveling brass, pressure washing shooting benches, and cleaning up in general in exchange for a bunch of work. Ejection port, feed ramp, custom safety work.... it was tuned to like Hydroshocks. It still didn't like Black Talons when they came out. I still regret selling it.

I had an Intratec AB10. Purchased new for $150, years later sold it for twice that to someone who really wanted it. Took the $300, and put that toward a full size Bersa Thunder 9mm. I know I got the better part of that deal, never regretted letting that one go.

Interesting thing was, the pistol was 100% reliable. I don't ever remember having a failure of any sort. Thing was very inaccurate though. The report was always a peculiar "pop"sound rather than a typical "bang". One day, I dropped a 9mm bullet through the barrel, and it fell straight through without engaging the rifling. :roll:

I had a intratec too but i had the one with the shroud on the barrel. I had similar results for all the shit i heard people talk about it being unreliable junk it ran fine for me but accuracy was whole nother story. better sights and a brace may of made a difference but braces didnt exist when i had it.

Maybe you had one with a problem. I ran one in USPC shooting for a couple years and it was as reliable as a Glock. It's one of the 2 pistols I really regret trading.

This is fun. My worst was a hipoint cf380. Threw a dumb bid in on one on GB and ended up winning. Worst part is I didn’t even notice it didn’t come with any mags. So all in with mags I spent more than I should. It does go bang but is one heavy and ugly piece of work.

Oh yeah. If there was a positive about that thing is that I learned to pay attention to what I’m bidding on.

I guess I have been lucky as I have owned many,many guns and never had one that I hated or was unreliable. Some required minor tweaking but nothing major.
I have had some that I tried to like but they just never worked out for me. Ruger LC9, smooth trigger and reliable but I just never liked it.
Glock 43 was the hardest gun to hit with I have ever owned. Me and it just butted heads.

I forgot to add S&W SD40VE. Bought it, put 50 rounds through it and sold it all within 48 hours. As a matter of fact I used that money to buy my first Canik. Guess you could say I went from worst to best.
Heh, I still have mine. It's my only 40 so it has kept a home though I can't remember the last time I even shot it. It just sits with a mag full of Hydroshock or something as a backup to my backup to my backup for home defense :-D
