On my any of my carry guns, I'm really only interested in making modifications that improve the function of the gun. I don't see the sense in making changes for the aesthetics of a carry gun, since they get uglied up in the course of being carried. Since my household is a single income situation that feeds two adults and three kids, it's difficult for me to make any purchases for firearm accessories that don't net me a really good return on the investment. It's true with guns just like it is with people, looks fade. My Glock 23C was purchased new in November of last year and already has considerable finish wear.
