    I would say the 22lr is a fav of mine also. Many don't shoot it because it's not a magnum nor a killing machine and it's illegal for using on big game naturally. However, I could make it work in a pinch.

    As far as underrated gun, I would say Taurus is one of them. I have never owned one but might one day.

    Star.......I owned a Star m-40 (Firestar) loved it!!! I held on that thing 1994 till 2009. That is when I found a gun shop that would actually give me a decent price for it, I then traded it for a Kahr.

    I love the Kahr, but I do miss that small very solid tank.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with Bersa. I have the 380cc.

    I agree Bersa is underrated, I have the Thunder .380 and carry it IWB loaded with Corbon Powrball. It is dependable and accurate. Don't know why more people don't buy Bersa?

    I also own a Stoeger Cougar 9mm with 600 rounds thru it not one failure.Excellent gun!

    I really want to try a Bersa, always hear them mentioned but never had the pleasure.
    If someone is local in MA/NH message me maybe we can make a range date.

    I always thought Hi-Points were bad until I got my 995ts (on the cheap) and I have been very happy with it. So my vote from my minimal experience will go to Hi-Point. ooh dam thats a carbine well I guess I will just stick with that lol

    I vote for Hi-Point. If you buy a gun for function and not looks the Hi-Point fills the bill. To add to that the price is great and the warrenty may be the best in the industry.

    I recently aquired a Bersa Thunder 9 (9mm) and it is a great pistol. I am keeping this one.

    I'd have to go with Hi-Points we have three of them and really love them.Havent had any problems to speak of and they go bang every time.Plus the warranty is the best in the business as far as I'm concerned.

    I've had 3 bersa's (.22 .380x2), 2 Star's (.380x2) and 1 Hi Point (.40) all of these guns have captured my heart and the hearts of the people I allow to to fire them. With the exception of the current Star .380 I never had a problem with any. Even with the problems I've had with the current Star I own I will continue to purchase the brand. I would have to vote Star as the most underrated. I've seen the Star bashing and just chuckle, good, I'm glad y'all think they suck. MORE FOR ME!

    Hi Point would be my second choice. I'm actively looking for a Hi Point .45 or 9mm to add to the collection.

    Just about any .38 revolver. With the advent of the wonder nines, the long trusted .38's fell by the wayside and out of favor with law enforcement, but the wheel gun is still the most dependable weapon I have ever owned. I wore the barrel out on my old S&W State trooper with the 6" barrel. I would love to find another one that nice.

    We were still using .38's when I left the State of Florida Dept. of Corrections in 2002. They were Model 10 S&W's and had a great trigger pull. Very accurate pistols.
