    I was referring to two different designs. My 1911s are carried cocked and locked; commonly called 'Condition 1'.

    My other carry pistols--smaller 'pocket pistols' are DAO.

    I didn't expect any confusion as a safety on a DAO has never made sense to me...

    Agreed, saftey's on DAO pistols absolutely don't make sense. Just wanted to clarify what you meant.

    The POS would shoot once every 3 or 4 trigger pulls. 'Bout wore out my finger just to get through a whole cylinder. I bought it from a friend for ten bucks.

    S&W made Walther PPK/S-1. Real jammamatic. At least one jam per magazine. Any magazine. Got worse
    the more I fired the gun, not better. Only had a one year warranty, so Smith wasn't very proud of it
    out the door. Finally sold it.

    I know I am reviving an apparently old and buried thread. However, I wanted to add my little POS that I sold long ago. It was a Star PD in .45 ACP. Mine was blued. One of the first large bore sub-compacts. Though I liked the caliber and the "hideout" size of the pistol, it just seemed to have shoddy workmanship and the plastic buffer was definately a turn off. I was glad to get rid of it. Although the guy I sold it to apparently just let it sit in it's case. Never took it out to shoot or clean. One day while visiting I asked to see it. I noticed he had not once taken it out of the case since I had sold it to him and there was a fine layer of rust on the slide. I was really disappointed that he didn't at least try to take care of the pistol.

  7. What's the worst POS?

    For me, theworst one was the first handgun I bought. I had gone to work for a motrocycle escort service, and they issued a nickel plated S&W Model 10 with a bull barrel. The first time I went out to do some target shooting, I opened the cylinder and it feel off the gun. I asked my boss if I could ymy own weapon and carry it, and he said, "Sure." I bought a Burgo .38 spl snubnose revolver. Boy, the gun shop owner saw me coming. The grips were a strange target design that were uncomfortable and a wood-grain plastic. I dropped the pistol one day and broke a chunk off the right grip panel. The timing was so loose that it consistently shaved a sliver of lead off the side of the bullet when the bullet entered the forcing cone, and I could not hit the side of a barn if I were inside it. A friend had a Ransom rest, and we took the gun to a range, and the gun, fired from the rest, was barely capable of hitting the paper, let alone the target. He told me never to pull it out unless I was at contact range. The gun would have made a good boat anchor, if I had a boat. I saved my money and went to a store similar to Costco, in Indianapolis, and bought a Dan Wesson .39/.357 mag. I ended up over time owning three of them. Now, I know a lot more about guns than I did back in those days, and I would never again buy a Burgo, it was the quintessential Saturdy Night Special.

    No POS yet with any of the firearms I own. BUT, I am an owner of 3 HiPoints and still NEVER had a problem with them. The Only thing I would say about them is that They are BIG and UGLY, oh, and heavy. My first guns because the price was right, perfect for My budget. Yeh, a few quirks at first but it was operator error on My part, new to guns, wrist thingy and all the other stuff. AND I have carried the C9 for CCW AND also used it in My NRA courses. I do not carry it Concealed anymore because I have found different gun/s that fit My needs since. I carry it Open once and awhile on the weekends while doing things around the house outside, etc. and I would trust it with My life. After seeing what else is out there I now see that it is just to big. The .45 is just a no need anymore gun..... period! I May sell that one in the near future. The 995 is a VERY fun gun to shoot and VERY accurate, YES, accurate. My favorite of the 3.
    But again, no POS with any of My firearms..........yet.
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

    The worst POS if mine I still have but it hasn't been used in probably 12 years. It's a Bryco Arms .380. It jams EVERY shot unless I fold up a small piece of paper and wedge it between the heel plate and the latch that holds the magazine in. I don't even want to sell it and someone get a false sense of security from it.

    Mine was an F.I.E. switch cylinder .22/ .22mag single action revolver, I put one cylinder full through it when I got it, and then not again til I moved back to Texas. I had to put down a dog my wife ran over, and when I went to shoot the trigger broke, That my friends went over like a lead balloon, and it was also the last cheap gun I EVER bought.

    Some Taurus 9mm piece of crap I bought about 10 years ago before I knew ***** about such things. As clueless as I was I knew that a pistol that FTF every couple of rounds was a bad thing. I sold the POS to some other clueless idiot. I have repented my sins since then and have come a long way, and now carry a Kimber Pro Carry.
