    I'm up for ideas on a bad@ss quote or phrase to engrave on the slide of my Stainless G.I. Springer. Bible codes or scriptures, movie quotes, anything funny or cool.

    While I'm not the engraving type (don't have tatoo's either), something like this maybe:

    "A Century of Service"

    Go with the quote on that 1911 from the movie The Mechanic.

    One side reads, "Victoria Diligo Paratus"
    The other reads, "Victory Loves Preparation"

    I think I have the Latin translation correct, but look it up for yourself before you go inscribing.

    Smile, wait for the flash,
    This is my 1911 there are many more like it, but this one is mine,
    Psalms 23,
    And my personal favorite, Revelations 6:8,
    Just to name a few.

    There is a quote from Col. Cooper that someone uses on the forum, that is, I think "The pistol, learn it well, carry it always" I not sure I have the quote exactly correct but it sounds good anyway.
