How important is attractive in a carry gun?
I would not be caught dead with an ugly gun - I don't care how it shoots it's how it looks. I would reject a potent carry weapon if it was ugly.
7.53%
All things being equal, if it shoots well and fulfills the mission I'd like it if the gun is attractive but it's not a deal breaker.
53.56%
I don't care what it looks like - I shoot 'em and carry what performs best for me no matter what it looks like!
