    Well, it isn't perfect, but my wife is happy and that is the important part. I took her KelTec PF9 and painted the polymer part pink for her. She has wanted a pink gun since she is into pink, and so I promised her I would do it. I used Krylon Fusion spray paint and it came out pretty good. The real rough spot is around the magazine release (both sides) and inside the trigger guard. But the real benefit to this paint job is that she relented and said I could buy myself another gun as a reward for doing this for her. :thumbup:Here's the BEFORE: KelTecPF9Black.jpg and AFTER: KelTecPF9Pink.jpg

    Doesn't matter to me what color it is and she would have made do but she did want me to take a stab at it. Only time will tell how it all works out, but it is different, that's for sure.

    And here's the result of my wife's happiness - my new acquisition (a Smith & Wesson M & P .45).

    No freakin' way. Mine are remaining as they are - no pain jobs for my guns in the foreseeable future.

    I've tried painting up a Polymer frame before with the same paint. The paint will crack and chip after the first mag.
