Here's one of the Colt Premier "1 of 500" models - they're etched, and I assume the gold is plated. They were made for Lew Horton, who has assured me it's okay to fire and clean the gun without damaging the gold plating. Both the etching and plating seem to be a step above the older guns and knives I've seen done with those methods. There's also a "1 of 750" model with different gold inlays, a "Dragon TALO" model, and some with snakes and flags - you can see them on Lew Horton's site. I just got mine tonight, so no shooting report, but with my limited knowledge the gun seems well fitted. I don't usually like gold on guns, but I like this one:

WOW! Mr. Bob, it's just gorgeous. If I owned that gun and a platoon of burglars broke into my house, I'd make sure the gun was comfy in my sock drawer and wouldn't get hurt in what would follow and fistfight the whole bunch of 'em rather than shoot at them with that gun! If I had the bucks, I'd buy one, too! Now, tell me you're going to order an El Paso Saddle, "Patton," belt and holster and that you're coming to spend a week with me! Congratulations, Sir. It's fantastic!

Mr. Bullet Bob, you KNOW what you NEED? IVORY! Wouldn't that just be the cat's whiskers!? Maybe with your initials, ala General Patton ... or a Masonic symbol, ala Elmer Keith!? Knights of Columbus? Army? Navy? Marines? Air Force? Bowling league? Heck, ANYTHING would look good there, wouldn't it!?!
