    M2. We pull that off the truck and put it on the tripod, and everyone comes over to drool.

    I think the old 30-40 Krag Jorgensen is just super cool...
    ... but then there's the M1 Garand which is just awesome by definition!
    Its one of those!

    "Quigley" 1874 Sharps. While the .45-110 would just be awesome, I would settle for .45-70.

    Can't make up my mind between any pre-1950s pump action 12ga, or a good 'ol lever action in 45-70..

    I once handled an SKS at a show that had Cryllic writing carved into it and seven notches neatly placed along the right side of the buttstock. I'll assume its owner was a lefty. Coolest gun I've seen so far.

    The Intimidator

    Go from this...

    intimidator1B-600h.jpg

    ... to this ...

    intimidator1_pieces-550h.jpg

    ... to this 45 cal muzzle loader; complete with three black powder pellets, primers, bullets, and the tools to put it all together.

    intimidator1_pistol-500h.jpg

    No, it's not very practical. But it is pretty cool.

    What's intimidating is knowing your boss' 40lb paperweight contains a slumbering 45 muzzle loader waiting to go "transformer"...:uhoh:

    Best joke I can think of for that thing is:
    "TIME! Okay, not too bad. Once more; this time with blindfold"

    I've seen that guy's website before; cool stuff, and way too much CNC time on his hands :)

    "Cool factor" depends upon context. "Cool" in a practical carbine course could be an SBR AR-15 with a can and a bunch of great accessories. In a long range course it could be an Accuracy International rifle with Swarovski scope. At a Cowboy Action match, a "cool" gun would be an actual Colt revolver built before 1900.

    When I was a kid, 'Cool' was a 'snub-nose .38'.
    Now, it's a close trifecta between the snub, a S&W model 10 (4in light barrel) and Colt's Government Model.

    Winchester 95 Military models, its odd and cool at the same time to have a lever gun in military configuration.

    The Gyrojet is a family of unique firearms developed in the 1960s named for the method of gyroscopically stabilizing its projectiles. Rather than inert bullets, Gyrojets fire small rockets called Microjets which have little recoil and do not require a heavy barrel to resist the pressure of the combustion gases. Velocity on leaving the tube was very low, but increased to around 1,250 feet per second (380 m/s) at 30 feet (9.1 m). The result is a very lightweight weapon. However Versions of the Gyrojet that were tested suffered from poor accuracy, cumbersome and slow loading, and unreliability (at best, a 1% failure rate was suggested; users quote worse figures, with many rounds that misfired the first time but later fired). I'd still like to have one just kuz

    The Sharps BP or cartridge either one. The luger and c96 mauser are close behind though.
