    Forget shooters, last-ditch survival and smartest design -- what makes you smile just to look at it? Winchester '94 here.

    S&W 10, 4", thin barrel is one of the most graceful guns ever made

    What shep854 said.

    I finally bought a 4" 10-5 a few months ago. Sometimes I just take it out and set it down in front of me so my eyes can gaze upon its beauty.

    5-1/2" bbl. S&W Model 41 made in the 1970s. Compared to all of my other guns, it's a work of art.

    4" Colt 3rd variation Woodsman Match Target . I have been enchanged by these starting around 1959 and haven't done anything about it yet.

    Audrey Hepburn may be gone but if she had been a gun she would have been this one--elegance personified.

    A '57 T-Bird would fit right in here, too.

    ...I really feel sorry for anyone born too late to appreciate those.

    Thompson. When I got mine, I would prop it up in front of me and just stare at it. I still do, on occasion.

    A hard question to answer, one that required quite a bit of thought... but after thinking for about 5 minutes, my answer is...


    A well made FAL with wooden furniture.
