What's the Ugliest Handgun Ever Made?

What's the Ugliest Handgun Ever Made?

In my earlier blog on the most beautiful handguns ever made, Jim Wargula (a faithful reader) suggested that I cover the ugliest handguns, ever. Great idea; and an incredibly fertile field.


Again, we probably should establish some parameters. I'd like to keep it to form over function — we can cover guns that include both in a future blog. Also, it 's only fair to eliminate some that are just outright bizarre, or specialty pieces such as the Reid Knuckleduster, Chicago Palm Pistol or Cochran Turret Revolver — those are just offbeat contrivances that seem to transcend any sort of aesthetic judgment.

So here are my personal top five. In this case, I suppose, they'd have to be in descending order. Check out the gallery below and be sure to chime with your thoughts.
