    Which military handgun looks the coolest? It has to be in use currently, so that's m9, p226, glock 19, hk45, etc.
    I am of the opinion that glock 19s look cool, but nothing beats a good old 1911 in terms of looks (and I can say that because there are still military personell using the 1911.

    Looks aren't everything.

    I'd go so far as to say looks aren't anything in this context.

    Looks are BS...Functionability, Reliability, Ease of usage, and Ease of maintaining are not.

    Agreed looks have little to nothing to do with it when im looking into guns, but to answer your questions I am a fan of the Glock 19 it just has a clean look to it.

    I know looks aren't much, but I didn't ask what is the best, I asked which looked the coolest... I want to know what you think...

    No, but I suspect the OP is really just having some fun with the aesthetics. I see no harm in it.

    Personally, I think it's hard to beat the looks of a nice 1911. Modify it with rosewood grips, and you've got quite a looker.

    The 1911 is a super sweet looking gun. You really can't beat the looks of it. For performance, you can't beat a Glock though...

    OP is just asking about looks. Not performance.
    I like the look of the FNX.45 a lot. And it performs well

    For me it's the glock 17, I just love the boxy looks...

    Yeah, the glock has to be the best looking pistol! I even got an airsoft glock cause they look so good.
