    For me, it's gotta be the Benelli M3 with pistol grip.

    I would have to say my buddy's Guerini is my ideal as far as looks go. I'm gonna have to get one one of these days.

    Well someone already showed the ar-15 of shotguns so now it's up to me to say I love the look of the Saiga-12. Plain-jane style they look fine, but put a collapsible butt stock and a set of front rails and a drum full of buckshot under it and its just plain evil black gun. The kind of gun that gives liberals nightmares.

    The ak of shotguns.

    Almost any Side by Side. The less adornments the better. And of course, double triggers.

    I've always liked the look of the oh-so-impractical SPAS-12.

    Ditto. All else is utilitarian. We're talking art, here, art that shoots. :D I like nice skip line hand cut checkering on nicely grained walnut, too. I don't own anything like this, but that don't mean I can't appreciate and admire it when I see it. Po boy with taste. :D

    Guerini Woodlander 28 ga.

    At least until I get a 12 ga. Summit Ltd. or maybe a Forum to go with it.

    Any high-end gun that has extensive Bulino style engraving works for me

    Holland and Holland does, as well.

    But the gun in my hand after I make an "impossible" shot on fast-flushing quail is, at that moment, my favorite looking shotgun.:D

    Okay, as long as we're dreaming, when I order my McKay Brown matched pair I'm also ordering two from F.lli Rizzini. They only make about 2 dozen a year.
