Totally agree. In fact, I still have the picture of mine on my phone. I took while it was in the display case at the gun shop prior to purchasing it. I even talked them into giving me one of the stands they used to display them so I could take pictures of it once I got it home.

It shoots like a dream too.

Count me among the ones who hears the music. The last time it happened, about ten years ago, it was a completely pristine, unfired 1970 Smith Model 15-8, purchased from an estate by an LGS. Its exact twin from the same collection was there too, and I didn't have the money to buy both; but though the guns were identical in every way except for serial numbers, the one I bought was the one that sang. Kind of like a knife I handled that snuggled down in my hand and sang, "Hey, let's go cut some stuff!"

The music didn't play for my XDm 40 but it sure did for my Stoeger Cougar 40. I guess my wife saw that because she asked if I wanted to get it when I was looking it over, but then it could have been the glazed look in my eyes as how good the firearm felt in my hand. A few other guns sing to me but due to other expenses I have to ignore the music.

Funny I just I used almost the same words described the purchase of my first pistol the same way to a friend. " the clouds parted, the light shown down from heaven, the angels started singing and in my head I justified it by its here and so am I so I bought it and we've been happy together since last week. Its a Walther ppq m2 9mm! Now if I can only find ammo!

I'm not so sure about "singing guns" but there are some when you bring them to target are just "there" and there are others regardless of price you feel like you've got to work at getting them where you want them. Some older folk used to say get in a shooting position, look at a target, close your eyes, bring the gun up, and it should be there where it needs be.
As some have already pointed out, we're all dillerent. A "natural" shooting position for you may not work for your friend Joe. Different length appendages, limbs,and torso all work for or against you.

My Mossy sings "boom, boom, pow" by the Black Eye Peas everytime I fire it.
