    My wife has a Birthday coming up,I asked her what she wanted for her birfday & she tells me she would like to have a orange Handgun.:confused:

    is this even leagl to own/do/throw away?

    if so,one of the glocks i own will be orange...cant make a glock any uglier,right?:D

    what paints/coats/powder/brand/ect. would be the best for this project?

    I'm sure there is someone out there who could do it. It will probably cost a good bit though.

    Why would it not be legal. It would be a crime to do it.

    Not sure orange is a good idea as that is the universal "toy" color. Pick a different color and paint away.

    thanks JonM

    the CavArms Orange would work...i'm just wondering if i was to duracoat the pistol or SOME parts orange,would it still be more ''politically correct'' or ''police erect''?

    My opinion and its purely that. Treat it as a gun. They arent toys regardless what color they are. Its a wise idea to check your local laws first some commie locations do have laws regarding colors. But i think they pertain to actual toy guns though.

    Found a section in Oklahoma law regarding actual toy guns. Statute says felons can not possess an "altered toy pistol" which means a toy pistol that is modified to resemble a real weapon. So, painting a toy pistol's orange parts black would be a problem (for a felon), but painting a real gun orange should not be. Laws can be a pretty strange reading experience!

    Sit her down, look her in the eye, hold her hands tenderly and say gently, "honey, WTF?"

    Huh... well there are kits out there for digital or other pattern, if she's dead set on it, there are ways to do so tastefully.
