Disproportionate $ to fun Ratio

I am pretty sure almost all of us have at least one gun that is considered "junk" in some peoples eyes.
One that is considered cheap....yet is still a lot of fun to shoot. Guess this can be a gun that is in good mechanical shape, yet is in poor conditon, appearance-wise.

2 that automatically come to mind to me are my Hi-point 995 and a Ruger Standard model that shoots great, but has a badly pitted (really bad!) reciever.

What do the rest of you have?

My Beretta U22 Neos was a gift from my fiance's brother and it's pretty fun to shoot. Hard to get that much fun for nothing!

I guess mine would be a Sig 250c, or Kel-Tec Sub2000. Both are good guns IMO though. Your Ruger Standard is far from junk.

Mine would be a Chinese copy of the Winchester 1897. I used it for CAS and it is pretty scruffy from its hard life. But it sure is fun to pour shells through it.

Weird...I meant to post this in the General area....

That Ruger is far from junk, but this may be the toughest looking one you would ever see! It spend about 6 months fusing itself to the vinyl dash of an early 70's chevy pickup, and has the worst condensation rust you'd ever see.
Inside, it's pretty as can be.

Sigma 40VE

It gets called all the names in the world, but its yet to malfunction with anything I've run in it, makes respectable groups if you concentrate on the trigger (trigger pull is by far the worst part :barf: ), and with the rebate from S&W cost me $250 before tax.....

Stevens 187B .22 rifle. The stock is cracked on both sides and the pervious owner tried to fix it with jb weld and didnt close the cracks up. Plus it has no bluing left, just patina but talk about a shooter.

Any of my 3 of my Mosin Nagants were pretty inexpensive but they are all fun to shoot.
When I look in the mirror, I am happy to see, some of that nine year old boy, who used to be me.
