Or if you get a stainless Taurus, you can always have the gun bead blasted for a more satin finish.

Laser engraving is the way to go. Find someone in your area, check out their work and go for it!

If it's good, it ain't cheap.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

A nice hard chrome, done right? I'd have to disagree.
Is that the hard chrome? It looks different than the chrome i was thinking about.

Looks good

You and I do. And considering mine is based off my issued SAW's serial... That'd be pretty cool.

I agree, trip. Olympus is is one of the better names here. Winds-of-Change is pretty cool, too. JonM, on the other hand, is definitely a little vanilla. CHLChris is lame of all lameness and will never be engraved on any pistol of mine!
