      Opinions would be nice...

      So, eventually I will have my Kimber Solo Stainless. I have a general idea of the engraving that I want done, and also have someone who will do it. Here it is:

      Kimber Solo Stainless


      with aluminum grips


      and these daisies all over.


      My question is, what should I have to tie the flowers together? Also how dense should the design be? I would prefer high density, but would a more sporadic design look better?

      Thanks in advance.

      something kinda like banner ribbons if done right should be able to take up unused space and look pretty cool.

      or some form of waves, kinda like the borders on a dollar bill. but id suggest looking at tattoo designs, since its essentially a tattoo for your gun

      Cartoon-like... but, not cartoons. Thank you for your opinions. I DO appreciate them, even when you're a Smart Ass.

      Trust me, I am VERY worried about that. I'm tired of it. This is my wishful thinking.

      Ditto. Mine was the biggest POS I've ever owned...

      As far as the engraving, it's personal taste. Probably why you're not getting many opinions...

      your 1911 kimber may go boom which is a copy of a pistol that is over 100 years old, but kimber can't make a new pistol that goes boom...
