Yesterday I was out doing some running around and had 3 different people say something about my gun. None of the them were negative, just comment about the fact that I had a gun on.
I recently switched my carry gun. My previous carry gun had a black finish on it, and sported dark wooden grips, 4" barrel. It was carried at 3:30-4:00 position. My new carry gun is a Springfield 4" SS 1911 with cocobolo grips, carried in similar holster and same position. Thinking back I realize I have had more comments since I started carrying this gun.
Has anyone else noticed that more people tend to see a weapon when it is stainless steel, nickel or chrome plated versus a gun that is black or blued?
