Well, Browning got my vote for most satisfied, and least satisfied, the 525 gets top honors for least satisfied. My other choice was Remington, all my Remington shotguns have been very reliable guns, but my 1100 16 Ga is most disappointing, 26 inch barrel, and weighing in at over 8 pounds, Remington screwed the pooch on that one, if they just would have built it to scale, or on the 20 Ga frame, it could have been a real winner instead of such a loser.

I picked Mossberg as the 5500 MKII I once owned like to break firing pins on a more than regular basis and the 9200 which I was given to replace it would not run properly, even after a couple of trips to the factory. The second one was not much better and it, too, went back.

I have no complaints with the 500 and 590 pumps nor the 512 bolt action slug gun. They were reliable and functional at the minimum which is what is most important.

Huglu got my second vote though Stoeger and Others were heavily considered. I was not impressed with many of the earlier Huglus that came out as they seemed to be rather rough and crude in workmanship. They look much better today but those owned by friends seem to be problematic and often make trips to the gunsmith for repair.

Wasn't sure how to answer the query. Since I haven't owned an example of all listed, there no possibility to honestly compare. Therefore, I pick the 2 I'd would never purchase.

Did you mean which gun I would least want to own under any circumstance? If that is the case I am willing to receive any gun anyone doesn't want because I just like guns.

My "other" vote is for Ruger. I've had happy experiences with all the Ruger rifles and hand guns I've owned save for the Mini-14 Target. I am terribly disappointed, so far, in its accuracy potential. I knew it would never be an absolute tack-driver but I sure thought I could do better than I have so far. Oh, well; I'll keep looking for the bullet/powder combination that works.

It was "shotguns" that leave me least satisfied.

My vote was for Benelli and Beretta. It has nothing to do with quality and everything to do with fit.

I didn't vote on this one. I haven't actually had any really poor experiences with shotguns.

Again, I'm late to the game, but I would put Stoeger at the top of my list of the worst guns I have every used. While their service department worked quickly, they didn't correct the problems which were present in my friend's Stoeger Condor. As far as fit, finish and functionality, it was a terrible gun.

That would save me a lot on shells, since 90%+ of my shooting is done with CZ/Huglu, Dickinson, Tristar, and Weatherby shotguns.
