    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). :D

    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. :D (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.

    One of these days you should just line up all of your 1911's Cane so we could droll over them all at once.

    The sights are hilarious.
    The remainder isn't really to my taste, but what do I know.
    Truth be told, I think they jumped the shark with the diamond plate guns.

    Might have a place in a New Age Wagnerian Opera;).
    Appreciate the craftsmanship involved, but not for this lad.

    I like the way the shadowing almost looks like Damascus steel from a few feet away. Pretty cool.

    Kinda reminds me of one of those OCC clown bikes. What, with the ship "theme" and all...

    That's just my opinion. That Hi-Power on the other hand....I'd take that.
