    Fell in love with Model 94 Winchester rifles a few years ago. (my first deer rifle in 1970 was a 94 in .32 WS)

    It is by far my favorite rifle to look at... ( I do shoot it too - regularly )

    As far as pistols go I find the Glocks to be lookers. (and shooters too)

    For those of you who have read any of my post here lately I have gained a taste for the appearance of single action revolvers with 6ish inch barrels. I prefer the engraved or case hardened.

    Tough to nail it down to one.

    If it came down to the ones that I own, pride of place would seem to indicate this one.

    Lots of American walnut, exceptional *feel* to it, wonderful to hear the action.... Just plain beautiful.

    Todd.

    Savage 99's
    S&W 27's when pristine, old hand ejectors or early model 10's with honest patina.

    Love those. But, being a smaller guy, I always wondered how shorter soldiers were able to wield those things?

    Among those I get to lay eyes on, I'm very partial to polished-stainless revolvers with wood stocks.

    I also find the deep bluing on many European all-steel pistols almost mesmerizing. Usually, it's the Eastern-Euro ones, like the Com-Bloc guns, and my Bulgarian Mak is definitely up there, but the finish on my Star Super B almost wants me to go swimming in it (as to the OP, incidentally, I bought that gun along with another, a Winchester 94, together.)

    Might not be as pretty as some posted on here. But man I love watching my daughter shoot this thing. Gives me some peace of mind knowing she can protect herself when I'm gone.

    I can’t pick single favorites.

    I really like commander length 1911’s.

    And pretty doesn’t mean safe queen.

    I love looking at revolvers in general. The pleasing lines of a Smith & Wesson, the rugged looks of Rugers, the class of Colts. I think Webleys and Nagants are ugly yet cool. I like the way revolvers look.

    I don't need pretty guns. I like ugly guns that work good. The uglier the better.

    Easy. C-Series Browning Hi-Power, just like the one that I successfully used to defend my life in 1977.
