S&W models 19 and 27, 2nd place would be a nice blued 1911.

You can't really argue with a classic like the SAA. The stainless P-08 on page 3 is pretty cool looking too.

Beretta Cheetahs are lovely handguns,,,
Meet Alessia and Allegra.



Kinda like Sophia Loren,,,
Just a bit smaller,,,
And bluer.

Quite honestly, I like the looks of darn near any metal framed firearm. Poly tupperware pistols do absolutely nothing for me.

Not even the 9mm glocks? I'd say they're old enough the be considered classics at this point. The Sig SP2022 is another good looking poly gun.

I like the Berettas for pretty, and I'd offer their FN 140 DA .380 (the Euro version of what was imported to these shores as the Browning BDA) and Model 70 for the group's consideration.





And I've always liked Bearcats:

This is my first post to this forum....

The large-frame Smith & Wesson revolvers have always appealed to me. I recently purchased this one after a 35 year absence from shooting sports. I love the long barrel Smiths and this one is a very good shooter (July 1987 shipping date).

Oh my God! I'd have to rate that as the ugliest handgun! To each their own, I guess.

I have nothing to compare it to as it's my first handgun, but I love its looks and is one of the reasons why I bought it.

It's very hard to argue with those Cheetahs (and that Star DK is awfully nice too). I don't have one of those, though. Of the handguns that I have, I think the Tanfoglio (made in the same town as the Berettas) is the nicest to look at:


But then of course there's also this:

In the revolver line, I really think the 4" Colt Diamondback (or 4" Python) is down right beautiful for a factory revolver.

I like the look of the Browning High Powers and am fond of the look of the 1911 style pistols.

Revolvers - Colt SAA.

Autos - any of my three .45s: The streamlined SR45, the classic 1911, or the simple & clean CW45....

I think there's a certain beauty in one of these.

The Broomhandle Mauser.

I'd like to own one someday, just haven't found a nice specimen at a price I'm willing to pay.
