I like the look of stainless the best but the old Colts with the dark blueing are very purty as well.

Yep. It's my burden. I appreciate the offer, but I just like you too much to do that to you...

So I prefer the Stainless and Nickel Plate. It still needs the occasional wipe

down with an oily rag.
Ain't that the truth! I generally buy SS for that very reason.

Nothing wrong with the brushed or matte look. Just my preference for brightly blued or stainless, Colts, Smiths, and long guns. One of my favorite is a little Browning lever action .22 with bright blue. A lot of the matte looking guns today are of cast material, I think and it is cheaper to bead blast them or whatever and then there are the plastic stocks and so on. A beautiful gun is shiny just like a beautiful blonde. Maybe shiny isn't the right word. But you couldn't ask for a better picture than a beautiful woman holding a beautiful firearm.

I liked the above post particularly for the last part.

We moved from one place to another only 250 miles apart, the humidity here is enough to choke a horse. In one place a gun if cleaned was safe until it was called for. Here there would be a little orange if you wiped it down in a month or two. The gun sacks really help.
No, I don't wish to give away my Smith 27. Blued steel and wood look wonderful.
Synthetic stocks don't look as good a a wood stock with some fiddleback. It is good to pick up a rifle with a aluminum bed and see the bullet strike where it did a month ago or 6 months ago or a year ago.
We purchased a Smith model 60 in about 1976 for the wife and I remember Smith announcing the 63 and 66. I bought the 63. Who would have guessed what gunshop racks and display cases would look like in 2014. From a couple of Ruger .22s, a Smith 39, and a 1911 and a dozen revolvers to a quadzillion melonite striker fired autos and ---. Somehow we have lost beauty!

I have a bunch of guns, some blued, some stainless, some nickel plated, some with nitride finishes. Sometimes I have settled for what was available at the time. One example that has haunted me is a Taurus PT940. I looked for 2 years for a blued PT940, but couldn't find one. In desperation to have a PT940, which I wanted for concealability while having a reasonable barrel length , caliber, and capacity, I ended up buying one that was brightly polished stainless steel with gold trim and polished rosewood grip panels. It is so gaudy, I really do endeavor to keep it concealed. But it shoots well, is dependable, and conceals well, so I carry it a lot.
