Love my blued guns and I put up with stainless steel because its weather resistant and easy to clean but as a long time competition shooter I prefer flat black for my work gun. To date I only have one in that finish but it has more time on the range than all but one other gun. Different color? Maybe a very dark green just because I like green but it would feel weird to an old dinosaur to not be blue black or silver.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
