    That looks really nice. I'd put that on all the forums I belong to as well if I did it.

    Thanks guys!

    ccw9,

    Yeah, I was a little worried about what the outcome would be. But, eh, it's only money if I had screwed it up I guess. I have never done anything like this to any of my guns before, but I am pleased with how it turned out.

    ccman,

    I don't think I could compete with the shops that already do this type stuff. If I just figured $15 / hr for myself x 4-5 hrs (about how long it took) Add the shipping cost for a handgun (roughly between $60-$80 from you to me because it has to be over nighted) You're lookin at 140-150 bucks, and I would still have to pay the return shipping out of the $75 profit.

    The gun looks very nice--good job, but I thought this thread might be about a Glock owner that stood too close to the furnace.

    I think you missed a spot. But seriously, congratulations on a fine job.

    did you "tape" it off? how did you keep the boundaries of the pattern?

    there's no way in the world i would even think of attempting this but i'm curious about how you did it. great work!

    spar,

    Yes, I taped the edges to have a straight line as a reference.
