The beautiful guns on display at SHOT Show (PHOTOS)

There is no shortage of matte black, FDE and gray guns among the more than 15,000 firearms tagged on the exhibit floor. This is about the other ones.

The 40th annual Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade show in Las Vegas has more than 1,600 exhibitors on hand covering more than 13 acres of firearms, ammo, and accessories. Drawn from manufacturers and presenters from around the world you can find some stunning works of functional firearm art on display while perusing the aisles among industry reps and buyers.
