    Semi-Autos Going the Way of the SUV

    Ever notice how all SUV's look close-to identical these days? It's boring. Where's something "truly" different?

    Semi-autos are getting to be the same. I just saw pictures of HK's line-up including the P-30. Gosh, looks just like my Walther PPQ. Or just like a S&W M&P. Or like a Walther P-99, Canik 55 TP-9, Taurus 24/7, etc, etc, etc. Seems like only CZ makes truly distinguishable semi-auto's these days since everybody (read that as eeeeeeeeverybody) makes a 1911, and they all look the same too! Personally I like the unique styling of the original Browning High Power, or the vintage Beretta's like the 84/85-series or the 92FS-series (both brought forward from 1950's ear firearms).

    Anyway, I'm looking for my next "sparkly". Somebody show me something unique!

    The Remington R-51 is about the newest, freshest design and that's actually a modernization of an older Remington pistol.

    Heard the R-51 was a bust.

    Buying a gun because of how it looks is like buying a car because of its radio.

    To me, a Glock is beautiful because of it's ugly simplicity, accuracy, and reliability.

    Most folks like the classics, so the emphasis is on function and size - probably a sound business choice.

    For me, I don't want something new - I want something that was built with the emphasis on quality and value for the dollar...that seems to be hard enough to accomplish.

    I dont know how "unique" it is but a 226 Elite Stainless is pretty pimp.

    Maybe a Tanfo Stock II?

    Drum roll please. ....
