I hear many people say they prefer the tactical advantage of an all black firearm. I am curious as to what the true advantage would be and if it actually an advantage at all when all things are considered. If you are carrying concealed the gun is completely covered. Since that is the case I see no real need for a black slide. Maybe a black slide would make the gun a little less noticeable if you exposed your weapon, but that is something we should be avoiding anyway. Even then I doubt it would make all that much difference in a real world scenario where people pay so little attention. If you open carry the question is completely moot. If you ever have to actually draw your weapon statistics support the idea that the gun being visible to your assailant actually increases your odds of not having to use it. That would seem to make you want your gun to be as "noticeable" as possible. I would think this aspect of a stainless gun would far outweigh the value of a black gun being slightly less noticeable during an accidental exposure. Thoughts?
