Who else thinks S&Ws are ugly these days?

Just got the 2006 Smith and Wesson catalog, and the thing that strikes me (along with the high MSRPs) is how UGLY Smith has made their handguns. They used to have the best looking guns in the world, but the mods they've made to them in the last few years have very effectively uglied them up. Anyone agree or disagree?

I own only one Smiff and Wetton... a 4" Model 686 (no dash).

The only S&W's that catch my eye at the gun show any more are the older models. This new stuff is junk.

One S&W I owned many years ago, but sold due to a new family, was a Model 39. I thought then and still do now, that that was a really nice gun. JMHO

Had one Mod 39-then it was the best 9 to carry off duty if you were lefty-no safety to fumble-then I got a 59 and hated it-both went the way of the grocery store---making $500 month sure didn't leave much gun money!!!
Ya know, I never did like the Model 59 either.
