    Handguns that have dropped off the radar entirely (or nearly so)

    I would probably place the Ruger American Pistol in this category. I never seem to hear anything about it these days (either pro or con).

    Beretta PX4 and APX. The older 92 series seems to generate more buzz, for whatever reason.

    Walther Creed. Just seemed to flop right off the bat. The previous PPX didn't seem to do much better. Shame , too, because my PPX is reliable and accurate.

    Any Steyr handgun. Not sure why.

    Any other candidates?

    I definitely don't think the PX4 is flopping, quite the contrary... It was, very much so, but it's made a major comeback with the Langdon compact carry models.

    Flops that come to mind are things like the Remington R51, Colt American 2000, stuff like that...

    Modern FN handguns never seem to get real traction.
    it seems to cause some people real emotional anguish not to insist, at every opportunity, no matter how irrelevant to the discussion, that you....

    It had a brief flurry of interest based on a transient period where a safety lever swap made it the biggest, softest shooting gun in one category of IDPA. With a little interest in the like a Glock 19 with a safety AIWB niche.

    I suspect more Glock 26s, 19s, and 17s are sold in a day than the not really a PX4 action PX4 subcompact, PX4 Compact, or Commander layout “full sized” PX4 respectively in a year.

    Did the FN 509 turn out to be a hit or a flop?

    I would say except for the 45. I always see the FNX45 around.
