    Which pistol is the best looking to you? I really like the design of Deser Eagle pistol. It is huge and macho looking.


    Glock is also a nice pistol. It looks really tactical especially with a laser sight.

    I like Desert Eagle too since I have played Counter-Strike. :p
    Very powerful pistol, it's shining too. Heatshot!

    Glock is also good. When I was still in the high school, one day a cop came to school giving us a lecture. Afterward I asked him about the pistol he was carrying, it was a glock. I know, it sucked in Counter-strike lol, try not to expect people to live when they get shot by a glock if you have played CS too much.

    usp is also great. I like it with a silencer on.

    I personally like the FN FiveSeven. It has this very rugged look that no other pistol can match. I like the HK HK45 too.

    I don't like the Desert Eagle myself. I think it's too flashy. I'm surprised it hasn't become a fashion statement yet.

    The desert eagle is by far my favorite looking gun. It's sleek and has a great feel to it. I've only fired one a couple of times, but it's a pleasure to use.

    I personally like the Sig Sauer P229 Stainless. 229-Elite-StainHero-detail.jpg

    But in reality this is what I would love to have! A Walther P38!

    I like the Glock on so many levels, including the visual. But the dependability factor is a key.
    Actually I read a book on Glock, after reading a shortened magazine piece, I got the book. It is an interesting read.
    Some forum members might like it.
    On the visual aspect alone, I am a fan of the Luger.

    I'll have to cast my vote for the Desert Eagle. I like how it looks, the name, and its country of manufacture ;)

    Colt 1911 - standard pistol for the Allies.

    Not too flashy, simple yet sleek, does its job.

    I am rather fond of 1911s as well. Kimbers are very impressive visually, but I gather their quality is not so great these days. (That said, my husband has owned a couple in the past and loved them.)

    I'm not a big fan of the Deagle. Here in the US at least it certainly is a fashion statement, and little more; it seems to be favored by people more interested in flashing a gun than firing one.

    I don't really like the plastic fantastic looks of polymer frame pistols like the Glock, but I don't share the hatred for the gun that most 1911 partisans seem to feel. It's always fun to get the two groups spun up and fighting, though!

    I must agree with the firsct couple posters in that the Glock and the Deagle are both very gentle on the eyes.

    Visually, my favorite handgun has to be a Smith & Wesson .45 revolver. Something about revolvers really appeal to me, and I think they put more fear in the eye of the people they're being pointed at.

    I do like the looks of some of the older revolvers, especially those with wood grips. This is an area where modern semiautomatics all seem to fail me in the looks department--ugly grips. I inadvertently insulted the proud owner of a new 1911 by asking him if he intended to replace the grips; he already had. :oops: They looked like fake wood!

    I've also decided I like a two-tone look for semiautomatics. I just bought one of these: http://www.coolhandlukefirearms.com/images/guns/rugerp95ss.jpg Rugers are bricks, but I like the stainless. Now if I can just find some danged 9mm in stock, I'll be a happy camper.

    My favorites are the Sig Sauer 226 and 229s. I much prefer them in all black instead of any of the stainless steel mixes. I prefer them without the beavertail, too.

    Not the best gun obviously, but small and practical.

    I still think nothing can beat the Luger in the looks department. Something about it just shouted 'elite' whenever you saw one being pulled out in a film. To me if duelling was still allowed within the upper classes, I would see them choosing one above anything else no matter how practical.
