    Of course, camo on a pistol that is intended to be hidden.

    • USMC03Vet

      Sexy women underwear rules apply. It can be pretty even if its not meant for display.

      Gun rule #76

        You put it much more succinctly than I did! Nice comparison.

      • iksnilol

        Tell that to the girl I am seeing, she doesn’t mind showing me the lace on her bra all the time.

        Not that I complain or anything, I mean, it is a really nice bra.

    • Matt L.

      See, that’s where I figure it’s the best place to have something that you just really like the look of. Like, running around in the zombie apocalypse with an AK that’s been cerakoted mustard yellow is… probably not the best idea, anyways. But who cares about a carry piece in some funky pattern/color? At that point the color is for the user, not anybody else.

      Best personal example I can give is the holster/carriers I made up the other day out of some carbon-fiber pattern stock… almost nobody sees it except for me, but I love the way it looks, and it just feels like it’s the right thing for me. It’s all psychological, but I enjoy carrying a setup like that more than something plain.

      So if somebody wants an LCP in a crazy pattern? You do you, blue-camo man. You do you.

      • B.K.

        Wow matt those look great! I wouldn’t know where to begin with something like that…How hard is it to work with?

        • Matt L.

          Kydex can be tricky. It’s about a $600 initial startup cost, and figure on going through around $100 of materials before you start making salable products. Tons of fun if you’re into working with your hands, though.

          Not that you have to roll your own if you’re not so inclined. Plenty of people are happy to sell you whatever you need (including me, if you’ll excuse the shameless self-promotion).

      • iksnilol

        That’s true, I just think I’d have something cooler than a simple camo pattern if it isn’t gonna be seen. Like a nickel finish with engraving or crazy neon green flames or something.

  • Kelly Jackson

    It’s kind of lame you can just buy these camo guns now, I had to shoot like 50 people in the head to get mine.

  • Llewellyn Franks

    Why do people do this to themselves?

      I’m not surprised myself. A gun enthusiast may want a gun to look like a gun. Or like foliage. In a non enthusiast who nonetheless wants a barking-iron for self defense, or on a lark, etc, basic animal nature will prevail:

      Given no preexisting appreciation for nitride and plain nylon, ones attention span is at the mercy of stuff like bright colors and… reptile scales or whatever that’s supposed to be up there.
