    With some help from NW Custom Firearms I am adding a little personal touch to my EDC. A little tribute to one of my all time favorite artist using his "love" symbol.

    Not only is that some really nice custom work, but those grips are gorgeous.

    Now you just need to use your purple nail polish to cover up the brass tips of those bullets to add that last bit of flare;).

    Just my opinion but I think it's awesome the way it is - coloring it would detract from the beauty in my eyes.

    Agreed, less is more. It's actually strangely elegant... probably because it's done well. ;)

    I'm not much of a Prince fan, but that is some very nice work they did for you! Now you've got me thinking about some custom engraving on my own guns.

    I've been in to his shop once before, I but I didn't know he did work like that. Just more ways to spend money...
