    I always thought glocks were for fine killing so one can continued their fine living. I would be more impressed if they figured out a way to coat the polymer with gold.

    From man with the golden gun. I like the the Walther in straight blue the best.

    Looks like something from The Glock Store... They do some genuinely hideous makeovers.

    While it may have fallen out of fashion after Patton's "New Orleans Pimp" comment to the press, there is nothing at all wrong with a well finished and good looking weapon as a piece of personal jewelry. Not everyone wants to wear a Casio, and for those who can afford it and move in the circles where such things are common, why not. Search "Texas BBQ Guns".

    This particular slide was made for a gent who runs a security group in Central America. He is neither a pimp, nor sells drugs, but he is very well off and can afford whatever he wants. And he doesn't shop at the Glockstore.

    This one was for a gent in, as I said, Texas. Former NFL dude that went into business. It matches his Rolex Presidential was his comment upon receipt.

    Would I carry a gold colored weapon day to day, no. But When I dust off the Brioni suit and the two tone submariner, I don't stick a "battle worn" G19 with a scratched up slide in my nylon belt either.

    Default SOME WEAPONS FROM THE PRE-PATTON ERA









    These weapons were actually carried into battle by killers. You can see versions like them at the Cody Museum in Wyoming and the Texas Ranger Museum. Nothing wrong with them if you care for that sort of art. And before someone snidely comments on the missing trigger guards, I will risk a wager that they guys that carried them have a far higher body count than the current king of IPSC and of IDPA combined.

    Just saying.....

    Absolutely there's a place for a BBQ gun. Or a tuxedo gun. Nothing wrong with a functioning piece of jewelry.

    The engraved guns Gabe posted are a bit more my speed over a gold plated Glock, but people can do what they want.

    I personally rather like some of those guns without trigger guards.

    My "Saturday Gun" was a stainless Colt 1911 with ivory micarta grips. Saturday was and is a day where the crew goes out to breakfast in lieu of briefing.

    Still have it. No engraving yet, but why the heck not polish the slide and frame and have it done? Maybe I'll wear it on the day I go 10-10.

    I note that the 1911 with the cut-down trigger guard has an aftermarket, and apparently adjustable, rear sight. I think I might have guessed, even without being told, that it was for more than show.
