    I tried it, but was never completely satisfied with how it turned out. I guess I'm either too picky or not good at coloring. So my XD is back to plain ol' black.

    Grease pencils work a whole lot better. I tried crayons with my Taurus, but that didn't work out so well. So I got a white grease pencil from my garage and put to my 96D Centurion.

    I used a white crayon, after heating the slide with a hair dryer, and it really jazzs' up the gun. Took about 4 minutes.

    Completely temporary. I had mine on, didn't like how it came out, came right off.

    It was last summer that I tried it, so bear with me. I think all I did was buff it off with a clean rag and maybe a nylon bristled brush to get the crevasses. The only things I've ever used to clean or lube my XD are Hoppes, Rem Oil and Mobil 1 Synthetic (that's right, car oil). So if the rag/brush doesn't do it, the others will.

    I tried it the first time with another green and it didn't look right,so I took the cleaning brush and it came right out.If you try pink please post a pic I'd like to see it.

    well, i don't think i will be trying pink. i was planning on buying a black SC today and ended up spending the little extra for the bi-tone and i don't dare put pink on my OD green tactical and i don't think it'd look right on the bi-tone.

    Black would look pretty slick on the slide of the bi-tone.

    I can just picture myself calling me daughter and telling her to get the crayons so daddy can color in his gun. Who needs a coloring book?
