    Dear THR:

    I am torn between the three:

    Glock 18C (for rareity, firepower and looks with accessories attached)

    Desert Eagle 50AE gold plated

    H&K Mark 23 with laser device and suppresso


    Thank you

    A gold plated DE is only cool if it matches your teeth.

    HK by default since

    A. There is no way a gold plated deagle or glock could ever be considered "cool" and

    B. You have no 1911 listed

    "Cool" is a package thing, not a single item. For instance James Bond dressed in a tux makes a gun look "cooler" than a 350lb tow truck driver wearing shorts and sandals.

    Too true. I can think of a ton of exceptionally cool guns, depending who's holding it. Bond with a PPK is a great example. Wyatt Earp with a Colt Peacemaker is another. But I can't think of one specific gun that stands out as being cool all by itself.

    A suppressor attached makes anything and everything look "cool". IMO

    That being said, 1911/Hi Powers reign supreme in Gato's super badass land of badassery.

    There's a mint condition 4" pre-29 sitting in my LGS that comes to mind. Even I would be cool if I had that...:cool:

    I'd have to say it's the two I own:

    The Mauser HSc & S&W 625 Mountain Gun.

    Either will do. :cool:

    Hard to say, there's a lotta cool handguns. But my Uberti Walker is pretty awesome in it's own right. Just something cool about a handgun that feels like it should be on wheels.

    A full auto Glock is way cooler than an H&K Mark 23 (though the silencer does earn it some extra points), and some garish looking gold plated Desert Eagle in .50AE.

    And a Beretta Model 93R is way cooler than a Glock 18.

    Cool and production don't go hand in hand.

    The only one I'd own would be the Desert Eagle, but I'd have the gold removed and refinish in satin nickel or BHC. I do miss my BHC .50, impractical as it was.

    G18 and Mk 23 are gamer fantasy guns. G18 is just a bullet hose, the Mk 23 is the most ridiculously over-sized and over-priced polymer .45 EVER. Having played with them, I'll take pretty much any other ~$600 polymer pistol over the Mk 23.

    The P38 is a cool gun, too!

    Glock? Desert Eagle? Seriously? Cool is an open-slide Beretta, like a 70 series or even a 92. NOT the blocky PX4, however!

    I think some of the more obscure S&W revolvers are pretty cool. Like the "Blood Work" gun and the lightweight version as well. The Smith 296 is so darn cool I dont know why everyone is not wanting one. The Taurus 450 titanium snubby is way cool even if it is made by a second tier company.

    The list goes on but cool means a variety of things. For instance, I dont agree with any of the OPs picks. They are just kind of "blah" to me. I do agree with the HK P7 though.
