I only have one shiny gun,THE JUDGE. It is mat stainless and does not shine as much as some stainless. The rest of mine are blue, dark and small. I will not telegraph from shiny with them. If they see THE JUDGE, it is already to late for them anyway!!ahol457 said:I have a blue PT145, also a Smith Sigma 9mm with stainless slide. I bought the blue Taurus for carry as in low light against badguy, flash of stainless doesn't telegraph my intentions to the BG. Might give me 1/2 second extra, or at least maintain concealment after drawn if kept at ready.
