For everyday carry, I prefer blue as its less conspicuous. And field guns don't need that shine.

Between nickel and stainless, I'd choose nickel. Nickel "ages" or develops a brassy color denoting age, and character. A stainless gun always looks the same regardless of age.

The "brassy" look of old nickel coincides with the patina of a blued gun.
