I have no problem with customizing a gun, making it girly, doing what the customer wants. However, that looks like a toy. Orange and red are just as bad as pink or purple.

The grips do not bother my hand at all. The first set I made did, so I moved the fillagree, and now it is very comfortable. Some one with a different sized hand would probably not enjoy the feel. ...

Yes Griffin vs Bonnar was an epic fight! Forest is one of my all time favorite fighters. I think Silva has the upper hand. And as far as I am concerned golf is a disgusting sport.

They look great! I bet you could really make some money if you learned to do some tooling on them. My only suggestion, you already hit. Work on the stitching, and if it were mine, I would like to...
