Well Chris as the old line goes, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." In my eyes I like it and would carry it. There's something fascinating about it.

Keep in mind however, I had no real problem with the Edsel either.

True, true... perhaps with a different set of grips...

I'll betcha if Colt marketed this as a "Ladycolt" model to all the wimmin' out there they'd probably sell a bunch of them.


At least it looks as far from an "icky gun" as I can think of. As it is, I've seen guns a LOT more utt-bugly than this one.

The grip's aren't really that bad, but I could do without the extended Slide Stop, and would have a different rear sight.

The Bevel/Melt on the muzzle looks nice though.

The only other thing... While I like Blue, as a color, Blue has been associated with Simunitions/Training-Safe guns, so having a Blue gun for carry might not be a good idea.

My Motorola cell phone is blue and silver and beige. It sort of came to mind when I saw that Colt. I find it really hard to warm up to having any part of a serious gun colored electric blue like that.

In Patton, the general denies having pearl handles on his guns, saying that "only a pimp in a New Orleans whorehouse" would have pearl handles on his gun.


(His, Patton's, were ivory, I understand. )

Splash-anodize the slide purple, add a hopper, maybe a shot-count LED device, and you gots yourself one nice paintball gun.

YUCK!
