    Depends on how you define beauty. I think each has it's own unique beauty to it. I, however, prefer Mr. Gaston's version of beauty

    Actually my thought is the 1911 is both, beautiful and beast. Look how long it has been around.

    The CBOB really is a tough gun to own... mine has about 1k rounds through it, and has only seen safe duty.... but its such a sweet shooting gun, that it begs to be carried... I'm just not sure I can abuse it yet.

    I know I'm gonna get flamed for that

    I see two weapons that have been chosen by the OP to be exhibited as a matter of personal pride.

    Both will get the job done, if, and when needed.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Is that what you see?

    I see a weapon and a firearm relegated to a safe.

    Sort of like a carpenter having his framing hammer adorned with inlaid gold trim and a plated and polished head. It WAS capable of framing, but the "adornments" make it only suitable for viewing or displaying in a cabinet.

    Safe-queens are fine, nothing wrong with people doing what they want to their property... but this is a CC forum, and most people here I think would choose function over form, weapons over safe-queens.

    Personally, I view all of my weapons as tools. Some designed for different purposes, but all are still tools and fully ready to do the job they were originally made to do. But if you have the money and desire to "adorn" one for the safe, so be it. They are nice to look at, but not being put to the task originally designed for.

    for this reason I think my first 1911 will be a more plain jane one.. As long as its accurate, light triggered, and has a good finish and ramp polish, that is all I require. I will buy a safe queen 1911 later. but I want my carry gun rugged!

    I see a couple of tools.
