    Gun colors

    My girlfriend has been getting interested in purchasing a handgun the more and more I talk to her about it. She had a question that I simply could not and did not know how to answer. She wants to know if you could get a handgun in lime green color? I know it's a random question but my girlfriend wants to know if that's possible before she goes shopping for a gun. Thanks in advance for the help!

    I think you can get parts of a gun anodized. I dont know for sure but a quick Google of "anodizing guns" came up with anodizing paintball guns. I bet a more thorough search may find the answers you are looking for.

    Edit- sniped and better info :)

    If she can't find a suitable gun in the color she likes, she might be able to find custom made grips in her color.

    Like it's been said,"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

    I know you dont want to deter her from ccw, but, in a color like that, would only attract other people's eyes. IMO, its just a bad idea. I think it would be best just to tell her how much you care for her and her saftey, that those colors may be "cute" they are not practical nor wise in a defensive weapon.

    Lime Green is beautiful if it gets her to carry a Self Defense Weapon.
