    I would second that post if I could have seen more than that poor first 1911.

    To think those used to be Real Men's Weapons. :(

    The Mexican Feds and Military Officers usually get them after the publicity pics are done

    I like heavily embellished and engraved firearms. Like jewelry you can shoot a burglar with.

    I'm not sure where this rifle came from, but it follows the theme of blinged out weapons.

    Having money and being insane produces some interesting things.

    usually im not for destroying weapons regardless of the reason. those however just need to be melted to slag in the interest of good taste. put the poor things out of their misery.

    I find it interesting that if someone paints his gun camouflage, you guys really like it.
    When shown pictures of classic (if overdone) engraving and plating, most act as if a sin has been committed! Engraving, plating, and embellishment has always been done to quality, valued arms. Those are "men's guns-" "rich men's guns!".
    Because you can't afford it, don't decry it. This embellishment requires much more than an airbrush or spray can to accomplish, and it lasts many lifetimes.
    Expand your horizons a little.

    How about sparing me the lecture. You will never convince me that I should wear a diamond encrusted Escalade emblem on a platinum chain. This may work well for you.:rolleyes:

    Can we simply say: to each his/her own and move on?

    Nor was I attempting to.
    Taste is one thing. Embellishment another.

    I'll take umbridge with that statement. :mad:

    I don't personally like to see someone home painting their weapon camoflauge and I don't like seeing someone spend thousands of dollars to add bling-bling to their firearm of choice. I don't think you will find me every saying "That looks great" in any post, regardless of who did it.

    Now, if we are talking a Cape Gun from Holland & Holland, I would expect it to have some classically done, eloquent, hand carvings on the stock and engraving done on the metal of the action and barrel(s).

    These weapons were obviously decorated for a more colorful culture. While in that culture that might seem like the thing to do, Ferrari doesn't make handguns for a reason!

    Just because you can, does not mean you should. :cool:

    you assume i cant afford the price that sort of thing takes?? trust me i got enough disposable income to do that if i lacked the taste to defile a firearm in such a fashion. not all of us are participating in obama's economy. just because a thing costs a lot does not mean it is a good thing.

    Jon,
    It was a generic comment, not directed at you.
    But, it did give you the opportunity to boast about how rich you are... I'm really impressed. :rolleyes:

    BTW- this forum IS called the "Engraving and Refinishing" forum.
