As the title says- what gun in your collection isn't very nice or pretty, but is one you like?

Mine is this old Taurus model 66, 357 magnum. I got it as a throw in with another purchase for a whopping $100. It's scratched up and was dropped on it's rear sight at one point, pinching one of the blades in. I've learned that with my sight picture, if I touch the tip of the bent sight to the top corner of the front sight, it's a tack driver, so I haven't changed it out yet. It's been the gun that guards my front door for a dozen years, and I have every confidence in it when I answer the door with it tucked behind my leg.

My Glock 21.
A police trade-in, looked brand new and was priced so low I couldn't pass it up.
.45ACP which I like, and the gun shoots well and it's accurate, of course Glocks are very utilitarian.
But it's also frickin' HEAVY.

I have a love for bastards. 18" AR cause 20 is too long and 16 has no rifle gas. Turkey "thugs" cause vented barrels are cheaper after they aren't in vogue. A 92fs, cause it doubles as a really heavy boomarang. When I do get a "non ugly gun" like a regular 16" ar, I put an lpvo and a flash can on it so it fits in. :ROFLMAO:

My Russian built Imez Makarov 380, ugly grips, thin bluing. The slide bit me the first time I shot it, learned quickly to not high hand it!
But it is 100% reliable, just runs and runs, commie craftsmanship I guess...
Need a picture.

High Standard R-106 22LR revolver.

Scratched, muzzle wear, someone painted the grips.
Ugly as sin. But for some reason I can't part with it.

Yeah that is ugly!
May....be, but it does its job REALLY well. To short to shoulder, but stock holds 6 extra rounds in a little compartment. Keep (3) #7's and (3) slugs in it. Hangs in my shop for immediate use. Simple break action, plastic hammer, never failed yet. since I inherited it, have no idea what it cost, or its age. Don't really care either. 😁 I dont mind putting it on the 4 wheeler, and it getting dirty. It's a workhorse.
