no, dont bother me, just surprised at the logic you're assembling to justify a tenuous position.

Gun doesn't look like a toy. at all. no one is going to suffer for it.
If there was some sort of risk, I'd think in our litigious/hyper regulated society there would be some sort of outcry.

Do you think if I had to pull it out, someone is going to notice that minor coloration and what.... rush me?
you make a few weird points that have nothing to do with a gold barrel.
Which Walther offers on the PPQ M1..
email them



But I do enjoy these sorts of things, arguing some banal aesthetics point you wish to elevate into into some sort of CPSC issue...

Of course it bothers you, which is why it was you who resorted to personal attacks to justify your position. I don't care how fun you are at parties. We're speaking of firearms here.

You don't know how anyone is going to perceive the pistol as it leaves the holster. I do know there is no benefit to paint the barrel in flourecent colors. Which was my whole point, that you took so, so, so much offence to, even though you say it doesn't bother you. Yea. Right.

Everyone else on this thread spoke positively of this modification. What's wrong with just one member here putting out some thoughts that may, or may not make people rethink this? On a discussion forum no less.

How do you feel about painting just the muzzle device of an AR-15 orange?

Dude....you got issues.

But hey, since you asked ...there are significant benefits to TiN coatings. Is it necessary? No. Neither is a cheeseburger.

Never seen a toy look like this and for that matter I don’t carry it. But I would if I wanted to. And no one would question the intent.

I guess I hurt some feelings here.

Too bad.

No. Not at all. I suspect some of us may be concerned.

Where are you from? You married and have a family? What do you do for a living?

Not all use our guns for carry, he might enjoy shooting at the range or compete in a league at a club, as I do. I have never carried mostly because NJ SUCKS.

"to each there own"

Im sure every car you have ever owned was not black?

This is a forum each has a opinion, everyone , thanks for yours by the way
Have a great day!

Non black cars look like toys. A child might get in it and drive off.

There are lots of things to worry about. Coating a barrel in TiN is not one of them.

Making a gun look like a toy which results in a child picking it up is not good. But it’s also illegal because ANY gun that a child can access is illegal in every state that I am aware of...black, white or rainbow colored.

As an instructor, we use used orange colored plastic replicas in class. Yes...the orange distinguishes the pretend guns from the real things. However, we still treat them like real guns. And any “gun” should always be treated like the real thing anyway.....training module, toy, or an actual weapon. Doesn’t matter.

As to someone pulling a gun on someone and the gun being colored and that somehow creating doubt in someone’s mind seems bizarre to me. Even if it were a squirt gun I was only assume it were the real thing (unless we were swimming in the pool).

While I am not a fan of colored guns, I am a fan of customizing guns to fit the need. Making them stand out....etc.....

I do plan to TiN coat the barrel and slide on my carry gun. Why? Because it will last nearly forever, be much easier to clean and be a lot less reliant on lube. I plan to make the barrel copper and the slide black.

I have a Shadow 2 being coated too just as soon as it gets back from CJW.
