Is there an uglier pistol than the ....

Tokarev? Every time I see one, I have no desire to hold it, shoot it, etc. If my life depended on it, I would throw it at said aggressor. It might serve as a hammer if I were pressed. I’m done, that’s all. Anyone else have a similar disdain for any firearm?

Grrr, I'm gonna kidnap you and make a "Saw" type movie.

You'll wake up from a drug induced sleep and find yourself in a small square shaped room that has chain link gates in the walls in it.

Behind each gate will be starving (possibly rabid) rottweiler dogs.

Laying on the floor next to you will be a Glock pistol (haven't really given much thought of the size and caliber yet) and a few Glock hi--cap mags.

If you survive, we'll see if your irrational Glock hate still exists.

Oh..... definitely. Lots of uglier ones than the Tokarev, in my opinion.

Opinions vary re; the Tokarev. That pistol was one of the most commonly used in combat in history. So ugly is in the eye of the beholder.

It's called the Dardick - invented by David Dardick in 1958, along with his famous 'tround' - the triangular round he also designed. In all fairness, they were never mass-produced, but still, it's damned ugly!!!

My Dreyse is pretty weird looking.

I see the Tok as not ugly, just very utilitarian. How it looked was low priority compared to how it functioned.

Which it does quite well. So I'll give the old Soviet lady a pass on that.

SiG. The guns maybe, but definitely the sh***y attitude of their so-called "customer service."

Has anyone ever had a post go missing? Has happened to me maybe half a dozen times in the almost-year I've been here.

I thought of the Nambu, but then I remembered the Borchardt.

This thing hit every branch of the ugly tree on the way down, hit a rock, broke in two, and one half of it became the Luger p08

Are you saying those fine conscripts had other options? 😊

It almost does not look like a gun.

Looks like it could be a torque wrench

Those Borschardts are pretty cool.

I would love to have one. They bring some serious bucks when they do actually come up for sale.

The High Points take the cake as far as the ugliest pistol.
