Man that's a talking piece there. I'll admit it's not within my design taste, but it will get a conversation started that's for sure.

Looks like something I'd put on a wall as decoration but I'd never go shoot it in public

I guarantee you it's going to have it's following. It'll definitely appeal to some.

I'd pick a different theme (plus regular sights), but I like it. If they did some kind of western, dragon, or spartan design, I'd be all over it (even know I couldn't afford it).

They actually did a good job with the design. I like how the engravings look like a ship, and how they used the sights as the end thingy on the ship. (I don't know what they were called)

I like this one too. (the black and white one)

To each their own. I respect the talent required to produce such masterpieces.

Would I own it? Probably not, but I've seen some drug-lord and middle east dictator's guns that were far more baroque. (READ: Who thought that was a good idea?)

It does remind me of a gun I'd love to own.

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!
