    To each their own. To me the worst handgun is the one your afraid to shoot due to ammo being to expensive or all its good for is to look at hanging on the wall. Guns are made to shoot.

    That's his opinion. I have mine, you have yours...everyone has one or more and all are entitled to them.

    I have owned Keltecs. They go bang when you pull the trigger and are rugged.

    I like them. For me the Jiminez or Jennings that you can buy brand new for $150 are the worst

    I think he does have a point. A self-defense gun cannot be any less than 100% reliable. Especially since most buyers of cheap hand guns are not professionals and they buy the gun because it is cheap and is said to be a reliable self-defense gun which it is not. If properly taken care of, cleaned, and the user is even a little knowledgeable about guns it may work fine. If they are like my 70 year old neighbor lady, that has never shot a handgun in her life, is talked into buying a Kel-tec 380 for personal defense (because it's cheap) and thinks it will work fine if she ever needs it may be in for a fatal mistake.

    I thought the USFA Zip Gun was the worst, only half a can of WD-40 could actually fix it?

    I had a Burgo .22 short revolver. May still have it somewhere. It has about a 20 pound trigger pull and is da only. I gave 5 bucks for it many years ago and shot it maybe 10 times.

    While not the worst, this topic reminds me of the COP357 derrenger.

    4 shots, and the gun weighs like 5#

    We used to joke and say it was a 5 shot. shoot 4, then throw the gun...
