Default Ccw gun color

What color is your carry fun? Do you choose a certain color for a reason? I am thinking that a bright stainless might be a bad idea but I am wondering if that is a factor for anyone.

Mines parkerized but really don't see where it matters- Stainless is fine & holds up great -
Color is about the last thing that shud be worried about on a CCW

Mine are primarily stainless.

Depending on what I plan on doing.

(I even have a P3AT with the stainless slide and blue frame. Unlike a govt sized parkerized 1911, I do have room for it in my speedo. And the colors match.) (only kidding)

I was just wondering if people try to reduce to the risk of getting "caught" by a lifted shirt or something.

If it is concealed, color won't matter.
