    Get away from the dictionaries.

    When you go to the library, just stick to computer and checking in on the forums.

    Interesting evolution of a word, it went from frigid to fashionable and attractive. Anyway my vote goes to a flattop Blackhawk converted to 44 Spl.

    While we're on the subject how cool are you?

    Cool handguns? I like mine best when it's warmed up; 20 rounds or so usually does the job...

    I do like the looks of the Walther P5c though, even chilled.

    Hey, tnoisaw.....

    I know what the definition of the word is.

    But it's subjective, meaning certain things and attributes to certain people.

    I meant what does it "mean" to glockinmypants321, Please !

    I like big bore revolvers. (.45-70 & .500 S&W Magnum). In that category the Magnum Research BFR's rank up there in "Cool Factor". Bill T.

    If you're buying a gun soley for good looks, it the Colt 1860 Army Model cap-and-ball, hands down.

    If "cool" will do it for you, probably the Webley .455 Auto.
