    Color of weapon

    Hello everyone Iím new here and to conceal carry. Iíve owned guns for years but never carried other than [email protected] having one in my car. My question is. I have been looking at the a Taurus G2c, itís on sale for $199.99 my problem is they donít have one in black they just have it in a light FDE not the darker mud color but more of a bright tan. I hate to pass on a $50 saving and wanted to know if the color really makes a difference? Thanks for any reply or advice

    It doesn't make a lick of difference in how the pistol operates. If you're meaning in concealing it, you'll get as many different opinions as there are respondents.

    Iím an old school traditionalist. Give me black, blue or stainless not some gaudy color even if it costs more.

    I own a number of pistols and all are black, but I would not hesitate to own one in flat dark earth. Pink might be an entirely separate issue....

    The color does not matter to me for plastic guns (assuming we mean normal man colors). I think they all look pretty good and would not pay more for one or another.

    Metal guns I am picky about the appearance.

    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    I don't think that the color of a gun matters as much as the brand. Just my .02 worth

    You need to use the "Go Advanced" function when posting an attachment, like a photo. Once you are in that section, then post your photo.

    No worries, if its reliable and you can shoot it well it's worth having.

    It depends upon the finish to me, more than the color. See if it can be cleaned easily or if the finish wears off.

    It is one reason I donít get the american flag, or a lot of cerakoted stuff. They tend to wear off, or make it difficult to clean without stripping it off.

    Check the people at Taurus armed forums.

    And if the brand is Taurus...

    I have a Glock 26 that's baby poop brown (AKA FDE). When I told the dealer I was interested in a Glock 26 he told me that no one wanted to buy the BPB one and told me he'd give me 50 bucks off if I bought that one specifically. I couldn't care less (with in reason) about what color the gun is so I agreed.

    I'd have no problem carrying a pink firearm if that was the only option. Better to have one in pink than none at all.
