Simply put the one you can not shoot or hit your target with. Make, model, caliber or gauge does not matter.

My vote for worst would be a blackpowder flintlock pistol. At least if you had a blackpowder rifle or musket, if it didn't go bang you'd still have a substantial club in your hand!

Don't shoot him! You'll just make him mad.

The list of the worst firearms for home defense would be endless, but this thread isn't.
