    Brownell's Advertisement banner

    just wondering if anyone else has caught the "accessorize your 1911" banner. seems to me it should be "customize" and accessorize being something chicks do to be fashionable. whilst certainly some people are making changes to their 1911 for aesthetic reasons, I still prefer to say customize. maybe I'm too picky, but I see that word and instantly think barby (sp?). anyways, if I'm not the only one how do we go about correcting Brownell's marketing team?

    I think they just want to use the broadest possible term to maximize sales. Personally, I always think of "customizing" as stuff done specifically to the weapon alone, where "accessorizing" might include holsters, mag storage pouches, gun cases, etc. Some folks might not want to mess with the gun's innards, but could be convinced to buy the other stuff.

    ha, guess I'm just adverse to the words. some barby girl must have said accessorize enough to really set me against the word, lol
