IDK... My first thought is that it reminds me of a Concentration Camp.

We all came for OP's ruined Glock.

Truth is, what we got is OP ruining what little mental peace of mine insane Glock "perfection" fanboys had left.

(I'm joking by the way. I own Glocks. But the fact I feel compelled to write a disclaimer reflects the sad state of religious brand addiction/fanboyism today.)

P.S.: You misspelled "bacon" in poll option #5.

Calguns had 316,040 registered members as of 05/10/2020. I only have 34 people on my ignore list (i.e. only 0.0001% of the members are absolute trash) so this community seems pretty good, although I'm adding people at a lightning fast rate since COVID-iocy hit.

Bingo Bradly Abrahms. It’s supposed to represent the suppression of the human soul in a concentration camp. Excellent observation.

I'm not into art with skulls. Just not my cup of tea. However, I think you did a great job. The work on it looks great. Don't worry about others opinions. Just do you. Whether or not you like it is what's relevant.

If you use that gun in a self defense situation, the bad guy’s attorney is gonna make you out to be someone obsessed with “death” and claim you were just “itching to dump somebody.”

Your gun dressed up that way presented in court is akin to you wearing a shirt on your booking photo that said: “I want to shoot someone today.”

I don't know if I'm as likeminded as you, at all, "TrailerparkTrash"- but in all seriousness this is LEGIT advice right here.

Thank you!

Personally I don’t like skulls on things, but this is very well done. I’m sure it would be easy to sell if you wanted to. It really does look good.

Prolly find it in a field, but, with the skulls and stuff I wouldn't lay it down in a cemetery.
