"Shiny guns get you shot."

...only if you're a ninja.
Cracked me up.

But in all honesty, there might be something to the idea that black guns are more concealable, in that they are usually tucked in somewhere dark when carried concealed and you get a black-on-black effect. IOW, something shiny just inside your coat might catch someone's eye more than something black in the same location. I subscribe to that idea without being adamant about it.

Re: You can chrome plate plastic

The shiny gun gets u shot came from when I was in the military and someone asked him why all of our weapons where black of tan and my weapons instructor said that he ment that the nickel plated sissy guns catch light at night and make them easier to see than a dark non reflective coating do.

This thread didn't take long to go downhill. And considering where it started, it didn't have far to go.

It was good entertainment while it lasted though, eh?
Raised with guns only to realize how much I DIDN'T know. Newly acquired personal inventory is increasing, feed my obsession for knowledge!
