It's a bit hard to see with a camera.

Are you going to carry it and shoot it? Battle scars are kind of one of those things you just expect. One of my shooting instructors says "Throw it on the ground, I've got another just like it in the truck!". Meaning nothing is a one in a million these days.

If you want a "Safe Princess" buy two of everything and shoot one and store one don't even clean or break down the princess. I knew a colt collector that had some that never had the cylinder turned on them except at the factory. What good is that?

It doesn't look that bad and most times you screw up more trying to fix minor damage than if it had a major flaw.

I say enjoy!!! I don't mean this in an offensive way or a way to demean your purchase. The first scratch on a gun or a car always makes me a little queasy too!

It won't be the last if it's to be your EDC.

Be happy you got this obligatory faux pas behind you.

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!

I'd just blame it on the previous owner.
