    My wife is taking her CCW class later this week and our anniversary is coming up. She wanted her own gun, and wanted a pink one. She didn't want anything big but hated the smaller single stack guns. She shoots Glocks fine, as that's all we have anyway, so after some more shooting and researching she decided she wanted a Gen4 26. Unfortunately these don't come in pink. Fortunately, we have Duracoat. I picked it up yesterday morning and spent a better part of the afternoon painting it. I reassembled it this morning.

    We now own 4 glocks, and those are actually the only pistols we have. Less than a year ago, I bought a G19 for my first pistol and it's grown from there. I really want to pick up a .40 or .357 Sig soon.

    Here's a shot of them all:

    It seemed wrong to paint a Glock pink, but I think it actually looks good. The pink and black together look good. I'd rather paint her a Glock than have her carry a different gun.

    She's pumped about it, I guess that's all that matters.

    My girlfriend cannot stand pink guns. Doesn't look horrible though as far as pink guns though. As long as the lady is happy

    My wife would want this in a heartbeat. You did this yourself? Any interest in doing another one?! :O

    How will that hold up? will wear and tear make it peel or chip off or is it good for long use? I would like to do this for my wife's gun but don't want it to eventually look crummy.

    That's awesome. I wish my wife showed even a vague interest in firearms. I've suggested many times that she should take a CCW class, but has no interest.

    I've heard that Duracoat holds up well over time. I would be interested in a review after a year or so of frequent carrying/shooting.

    You're exactly right. That is all that matters. Good on you.

    I appreciate all the kind words.

    Everything I can find regarding duracoat is positive, as long as the firearm was prepped properly prior to painting and allowed time to cure.. I am anxious to see how it holds up in the long run also. Worst case scenario, you're spraying another coat on down the road.

    If properly prepped and if the firearm is allowed to cure before use it's supposed to be just as durable as anything and last quite a while.
