Video: Top 5 Guns I Regret Buying

“For whatever reason, at the time of purchase I thought acquiring these would be a good idea, but some factor later on down the road led to a severe case of buyer’s remorse.”

That’s the intro to this video, which covers some gun purchases that seemed like a good idea at the time but turned out poorly in the end.

Of the little S&W Escort 22 LR “belly gun,” he says he’s never gotten through an entire magazine without it malfunctioning, and he illustrates how the rear sight enjoys falling off. Doh!

The only gun in this video that I’ve thought about getting for myself is the Kel-Tec PMR30. I won’t spoil the surprise, but suffice it to say that I won’t be shopping for one anytime soon.

The last gun shown was a surprise to me. It’s not that he regrets buying it, but that anybody would buy one in the first place.

Enjoy. And then please share your biggest gun regrets in the comments below!
