No ofcourse not. That is the reason for nominations. And why 10? Vbulletin allows for polls with up to 10 options unfortunately.

Think of it like the oscars. Dozens of award worthy movies made each year but only a few are nominated.

Also, I was thinking the last 50 years. Hence the reason for that timeframe.

Why just revolvers?
Revolvers and semi auto /auto pistols are just different categories. I think, depending on participation, we could organize different polls for different category firearms. Such as pocket pistols, automatic pistols, large caliber, small caliber, SMG's etc.
Would a moderator care to organize the polls?

Just to see how many members would be interested, I wii start a poll. Coolest movie rifles. This might be fun.

I think the recent GP-100s are rather eye catching.

That's fine, everyone has their taste, though I will tell you it's something you have to experience firsthand to really appreciate.

Oddly enough I find the GP100 kind of ugly myself, but between the Python and the Model 19, I think the Model 19 is the better looking gun. The Python's lines are all very clean cut and parallel for the most part, and I don't find that as interesting as the more drastic ones on the 19. That makes it more interesting/visually appealing to me. I'll tell you right now though that if you're an artist, you'll have a much easier time trying to draw a Python well than a Model 19 just because of that fact, and for artists, that makes it a more interesting gun too.

Also, there have been far more that 10 revolver designs since the 1960s if you're willing to get into detail, or split hairs even, and I guess they all jumped on the revolver bandwagon since I posted my match up. I don't think a poll is a good idea, but I do think you guys should come up with match ups of your own, but make them fair, of course. Same type of gun, same era, something like that. Now that would make for an interesting thread.

I like the look of a nickel 1911 with black grips. But if we're looking at revolvers, I like the SP101 and the S&W Model 10

As for autos, I've long held that the unsung star of Letters from Iwo Jima was the General's M1911. That thing was gorgeous.

I think some CZ75 models, like the polished stainless, are very pretty.

Prettiest cars, women, firearms all somewhat in the eye of the beholder. I like the classic big ol' guns but always thought derringers were kind of ...."sexy"?

Like in a movie, card game, derringer.
