    I’m a “firearms are tools” guy. When I buy a new firearm it’s to fulfill a specific purpose, not just to collect more. In fact I’m thinking of selling a couple weapons that while I like them just fine, a lot even, I have another weapon for the same role that I like just a little bit better.

    With that in mind, and having run out of “reasons” to buy a new firearm, I’ve been kinda wanting a new 9mm semi. I’ve decided that “super cool looking gun” is a legitimate reason that needs to be filled. (I know, it’s a stretch).

    So I’m interested in what people’s thoughts are on the “coolest looking” 9mm under about $800 or so. I’m not super interested in expensive custom work, but something I can buy off the shelf. Any ideas?

    Anything Beretta 92/96 flavor. Would say deep blued Browning HiPower but might be a bit over $800.

    I have a 92A1, it actually qualified on the functional basis. But yes, you guys are right that it’s an attractive firearm.

    Gotta be a 1911 (too many to name a brand...). They just look great.
