But I'm sure it's a great gun, & I'd love to have it. To preserve the engraving & inlay, I'd sell it to someone who likes that sort of thing, & use the money to buy something I could shoot all the time & not care if it got scuffed up a bit. For my own use, I don't give a damn about a gun's appearance. I care if it functions every time, totally reliably, hits where I aim it, grouping reasonably well, and is comfortable for me to shoot. I've bought some pretty grips for revolvers, but they got scuffed up with time.
never really got on with the pretty gun thing! buy them to shoot not look all cute in my safe!!
