Aha! Now I understand where 25" spinning rims bolted to a POS car came from!

you would think that they would be lit up as a good target in a firefight with those, not that i don't like some factory engraving with some gold inlay, maybe take to the range a few times for the wow factor but this is way too much and it shows you how much "intelligence" these cartels have.

...wow.

And I thought Romeos gun choice in Boondock Saints 2 was just for grins...this is appalling.

How could you be afraid when someone has a call-of-duty gun pointed in your direction?

Drug soldiers making excessive money can afford to embellish weapons used for killing their enemies, including LEOs. They value their bling more than they value another person's life. Criminals spending money gotten by selling their drugs to our children. Extremely distasteful, IMO.

For them it isn't "taste" that dictates embelishment it's Macho.... wether it be the biggest knife or the biggest gun the guy with the most money and the biggest set is the most macho...... whole different culture....

So many people talking smack about these embellishments on these guns. I have a couple things to say about it.

First, did anyone notice the cavalry grips in the first pic? I wonder if that one was stolen?

And... I'd take any one of them. Granted, I would probably never take it anywhere as I would be embarrassed, but sitting in a display case any one of them would make a cool conversation piece.

It is all a matter of taste, and by these statements some of you may say I have none. Whatever. Crucify me.
