Single shots can't be sexy??



I disagree.

The best thing about sexy guns is the wife will let me sleep with whichever one I want. lol
Revolver is a tough choice between a Python and a SAA.
Auto got to go with a Ivory stocked hi polished blue 1911.
Single shot's gonna be some type of dueling pistol.

Revolver - S&W 686 or GP100 Too close to call. I like the 4" Redhawk also.

Semi auto pistol - CZ75 SP-01 Far and away best looking semi auto pistol imho.

Single shot - TC 45-70 I'm not very familiar with single shot handguns but I know TC makes a 45-70 so I picked the 45-70 because it's my favorite round. I can only imagine what it would feel like shooting hot 45-70 rounds in a handgun.

for auto's it has to be a 1911. better if it's in a hard chrome finish.
runner up, a ruger mark II .22 6" blued
third place, any glock... they're not pretty in the conventional sense, but that "all business" look they have can grow on you.

for revolvers? hmmm. I'll just be blatantly biased and say my taurus 608 4" high-polish stainless/black hogue. I fancied it at first glance, but over the years it's only grown more pretty.

single shot? uh... no idea. didn't know they had any sex appeal.
