    Looking for a pretty carry gun

    I fell in love with the Sig P239 SAS 9MM Custom Shop version. Stainless slide/walnut grips. Ended up buying the P239 SAS in the all black version.

    Although I really love this gun and carry it almost always.

    My promise to myself this year was to buy a pretty gun! Something similar to the Sig custom shop version. So anyone want to suggest a pretty gun that I can use as a CC piece? CC being the operative phrase. Caliber maybe 9MM. I've considered the two tone XD, but very hard to find. So I think I am back to the drawing board with a stainless and walnut.

    I'll throw my Kimber Ultra CDP out here for you to look at. I put a set of thin, clear, Alumagrips on because the original Cocobolo checkering rubbed if I wore an IWB holster. This gun is thin, light and ultra concealable, packing 7 rounds of 45 ACP with superb accuracy from its 3" barrel. I think it's the ultimate in CC.

    Pretty is a pretty relative term. For me a a 1911 that I have spent time on trying to make it not only accurate but as original as possible;e is about as pretty as a pistol can get. Just get out there and look at as many different guns as you can. Check out gunbroker.com and just search all over. Check out the featured listings. You'll know it when you see it. And remember. If you are looking at something that you can actually change grips on then you can buy those elsewhere. I have about 20 sets of 1911 grips not on guns that I can put on anytime I take a notion to. So if you don't see the walnuts you want on the gun you can always get them.

    My personal favorite for small pistols is the Springfield EMP. It's purty, and shoots good too.



    They do have, however, perhaps the worst Website in the firearms world...

    Why get a "pretty gun" to carry. It will just get beat up with carry.

    My newest carry gun is an HK USPc 45. Definetly not "pretty," but awesome none the less

    But ya know it might be neat to ask the BG, "isn't this is pretty gun you're gonna get shot with!!!!!"

    pretty gun?
    nickle plated but it would not be a CCW
    to me that would be a nickel plated with ivory grips for 45 1911 or 38super 1911
    for a revolver S&W has nickel plated revolvers and then get your favorite wood from Hogue
