    T/C TCR-83. Picked up one these at a gun show used. Came with two barrels. A 223 Rem., and a 7-08. Both barrels shot groups like a shot gun. Absolutely horrible accuracy. 3”-4” @ 100 yards from each barrel with hand loads. Sent it back to T/C. T/C repair claimed nothing wrong with the gun that everything was within spec. I sold it to a guy who used to annoy me when I worked gun shows. The next gun show I worked, this guy was walking around trying to resell it. Do not ever get taken by this rifles looks, it gave me the worst buyers remorse I have ever experienced.

    I bought one in 1979. Was doing a lot of goose hunting, shooting 2-3 boxes of 3" 12ga a week. Got tired of my shoulder looking like hamburger.
    That is still my goose gun.

    Traded a 6" Ruger BH .357mag for an Essex frame 1911a1 with a High Standard barrel. For some reason, I can't seem to be able to hit the broad side of a barn from the inside with it. I still have it hoping to learn how it shoots, but should've kept the Ruger.

    Mauser hsc, auto ordnance 1927A3, and an Emma werke baby luger. If you are unfortunate enough to stumble across any of those, run.
