    Why take a classic firearm as the 1911 and flash it up
    There's No need except make it look like ****. Cuase the flash Won't Help you shoot any better only time And Practice can. Make you become good at Shooting.

    Easy... cause you can if you want to and it really shouldn't make any difference to anybody else what a person does with their own property.

    You could use a chromed slide to tactically blind an attacker.

    Maybe he saw one of the Taurus 'pimp' guns, all chrome with gold colored controls. First time I saw one, wondered why anyone would do that to a pistol. 'Course, I guess some folks like them because I noticed it got bought.:)

    Normally the stick is the first thing to go, once they start running and frailing their arms :)

    To each their own.

    If that is what you want, go for it.

    I would rather waste my money on ammo to practice with.

    We are all individuals so what ever anybody wants to do is great..... for them. What makes America great. Flash could mean different things to many people. Flash to me means gross, ugly, wasted money etc........., but each to his own.

    I was Hiding just a bit busy

    I Mean To Each his own when it comes to his or her firearm do with it what you will. But no about of flashy crap helps you
    All it does in my view is make the gun ugly and heavier.
    My thoughts Is if you want to be a good shooter build good basics and go shooting as much as you can.

    Also Think what Do you use your firearm for.
    Is it for work or self defence?
    Or is it just for looks and maybe as a show off gun?
    Think what is pratical but Aways to hell with flash and build good basics To be a strong Shooter.
