I really struggle with engraving. It just seems ridiculous to me on a lot of guns. That's JMO. "I know I just bought/made/designed a magnum revolver...... LETS ENGRAVE FLOWERS AND SWIRLY STUFF ON IT!!!!!!" "Yep.... that looks good next to the pony....." "Harry, should we just do a little bit and see how it looks?" "NO! Lets cover the thing so it looks like Martha Stewart's gun!" I wouldn't pay over a grand for that thing, and then I'd turn around and resell it for more.
