    I like the name "Isabella"! "Bella" for short which means beautiful in Italian.

    Stick with Gretchen, I like it. A gritty utilitarian name. Beautiful rifle.

    Since I respect all of you...

    So after a joyus day bringing Gretchen home... I got a call from my cousin. My uncle suffered a massive heart attack and passed away this morning. So' I'm changing Gretchen to "Lil Jonny" in rememberance of my uncle. I do this because he was a true American and as of late was very vocal about the change we have witnessed. He and his wife of a bazillion years (high school sweethearts) got their conceal carry permits in 2009, in their mid 60's.

    Is it possible to laser etch a name and date in my lower to honor his life? Can this be accomplished professionally at home?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    Nice looking rifle.

    Sorry to hear about the passing of your uncle, my prayers are with you.

    As far as laser edging or engraving, I would think just about any jewelry shop should be able to steer you in the right direction.
