I won't bore you with all my handguns, so I'll just hit you with the first and last, for now.
First handgun I ever bought is a used AMT Hardballer (hence my username). I guess I'm one of the lucky ones as I've never had a single issue with it in four years of AMT ownership. I got a pretty good deal on it too. $400 out the door for the gun, two mags, holster, soft case, and 50rds of Winchester FMJ.
And my most recent handgun purchase: A 100th Anniversary Colt 1911. I just happened to be in my LGS when the clerk pulled three of these out of the back room. The guy next to me wanted to buy all three, but since myself and another customer expressed interest, the clerk sold us each one. Fortunately, they weren't sequential, so the first guy backed off.
