In the gun thread I bragged about my new Kimbers... to soon. At app. round 250 on my SIS the safety broke. I had a failure to feed, hit the slide release and had another one. I looked st the gun and noticed that the left, thumb side on my right hand safety was coming out!
I looked the safety and just took it off. I called Kimber and they are supposedly fixing it. this has me not trusting the brand to much at the current time. Guns shouldn't break at 250 rounds of regular firing. Especially 1200$ guns.
I'm going to sell it after I get it back and get a Springfield Armory. I never had a problem with them.
I also traded my Grand Raptor II for an almost new 460 S&W magnum. My buddy who was forewarned about my experience, can't hunt anymore due to health issues so he was looking to get a nice home for his Smith and has lusted for the GR II for a few years.
A good win / win situation. I get something for hunting, and he gets a cool target pistol.
so the point of this thread is your bad experience with a gun or guns. Hell, good experiences are still okay because talking about guns is fun.
