    I'm not talking practical or even reliable.Based strictly on the 'cool factor',which is your favorite weapon?For me it's gotta be the Colt Dragoon or Colt Walker.Nothin' but an enormous six-shot ball and cap revolver.From what I've heard,it's got an impressive muzzle blast with a lotta smoke.

    Hoho, its funny how gangster-looking mr. Churchill is with that SMG.

    But my favourite is FN P90 PDW.

    Weird...

    Something of a huge pistol always looks cool to me. Of course the ├╝ber-example of this would be the Desert Eagle .50.

    Agreed!

    Some of the best looking ones I've seen are an American revolver (I think it was a Ruger, but can't be sure) with a telescopic sight, supposedly for culling squirrels.

    Another one I was impressed by was released shortly after the ban on cartridge firing handguns in the UK, basically it was a cut down Lee-Enfield with a bipod and telescopic sight. The barrel was just long enough to be classed as a carbine so it escaped the ban, but what you basically had was a big, extremely powerful and accurate bolt action pistol!

    My favs would probably be the Desert Eagle, MP5, the entire Taurus series, AK47, M16, F1 (but I think it would look coller with the magazine turned downwards), Remington 1100, Colt King Cobra, Ruger Super Redhawk, and Jackhammer, although that's mostly for the name.

    The Mauser 1896 pistol with the massive wooden holster that becomes a stock so you get a carbine. It always looked really cool!

    Alternatively one of the long barrelled Lugers with adjustable sights up to 800m -- I would love to know if anyone ever hit anything at that sort of range or if it was just Teutonic thoroughness

    This little guy is in my opinion the baddest, meanest and by extension coolest looking firearm in the world:

    That thing is wicked!!! It looks kinda' like an MP5, AK47 and sniper rifle squished into one radical weapon. I think I'll add that to my favs too, 'cause it brings out the true meaning of cool. :cool: It's probably the coolest gun in the world. I can't think of anything cooler than that. Man, my choices pail in comparison to that thing.
    PS Anyone have a pic of the Colt Dragoon?

    I can't believe the guys who made the FN Minimi gave it such an uncool, wimpy-sounding name. The FN part's good, but Minimi? Oh, please. That name should be given to a pocket pistol, not a special-purpose, ultra-cool shooter like that. They should probably rename it Maximus. Although Maximus isn't the best name to go with FN. Then again, maybe it is. I don't know, what do you guys think? Maybe FN Titan would be better. Maybe.

    It's called the Minimi (as in Dr Evil's sidekick) because it is a shortened version of the M-240 light machinegun.

    Oh. Well at least there's a good reason for the wimpy-sounding name. Still, I'd like to have it renamed. I mean, the name Minimi really doesn't fit a gun like the FN special purpose weapon.

    Names don't always have to fit.

    Special Air Service sounds like a group of flight attendants....
    until you meet them on a bad day....

    Minimi is short for Mini mitrailleuse (little machine-gun) and is used to designate light machine guns and squad automatic weapons (such as the M249). [/i]

    Oh. Now I get it. Still, if I were to design a gun like the Minimi, I'd name it some kind of cool, imtimidating name. Or at least a designation, 'cause they're okay too.
