I read a study somewhere  that there’s a simple recipe for female beauty: the hip-to-waist ratio. Turns out guys are attracted to women with the ideal hip-to-waist ratio for childbearing, no matter what other measurements are involved. I reckon it’s the same for guns. We’re attracted to weapons that look ideal for the job of shooting a bullet. The math is internalized. Hard-wired. In the same way that someone who knows nothing about airplanes “gets” the beauty of a Douglas DC-3, the beauty of my new (well old) blackened steel Model 67 Carry Comp is elemental (my Dear Watson). But maybe not. What’s your take? What is it that makes you all hot and bothered about any given gun?
