If cost were no object, I'd have them all engraved and stocked in ivory.

I have several engraved guns....two high grade Belgium Browning Superposes that are absolutely stuning.
One fully engraved pistol....a 9mm Browning Renaissance High Power with the Pearl grips...don't get much nicer than that.
I've been contemplating sending out a Smith & Wesson Model 41 (.22 semi-auto) w/Olympic barrel weights and comp for a fully engraved job. Then have the whole thing finished in a satin chrome.
There are a lot of good engravers out there...here's a few....enjoy!

Carry & plinkin' guns not engraved. Collection guns engraved.
Don't really need any engraved AR15 or Glocks.

My guns are either beaters or workhorses and out of the 40
I think only one would be worth it but then I would have to
If I wanted an engraved gun I think I would buy it that way.

I want a Dirty Harry commemorative 629. ;)
Seriously, I have no use for engraving. Were I a "collector," I'd definitely think that minimal coverage is best.

I do not have any engraved guns...but I have considered getting my G17 engraved by Zipgraver with the "In glock we trust" design.
Another option I have considered was getting a Remington 700PSS barrel engraved with "Don't run. You will only die tired."
I had also considered having flames engraved on my Mossberg 500 HD shotgun and paint the engraved area. Just for fun.

I most definitely would refrain from having my current
inventory of firearms engraved; as I'm just not the
"Show-Man" type. I consider my weapons tools of
the trade. If needed, oneday one of these tools
might be called upon to save my life; or the life of
a loved one. If that occassion ever arises (and I
hope it don't), I see NO need to branish a weapon
with my name, rank, and serial number around in
public display! Plus, it alter's firearms from their
original state; a most undesirable feature.

Gave my daughter a pair of Colt detective specials - one fully engraved then finished with a "Metalife" coat and one plain with a Black "T" finish. Gave'm to her in a hand made case. She liked them both...

Hmm...how about engraving holdovers in your rifle receiver or buttstock?
