    Naked, small and classy (springfield GI/Ed Brown), or are you a big gawdy rollmark kind of guy/gal? Just thought it would be fun.

    Small rollmarks usually look good, naked slides aren't bad either, depends on the gun.

    Naked, nude, no clothes on. And if there is something, the less the better. I would have bought a Trojan 6 months ago if not for those roll marks. Plus side is, I'm still saving and now I'm shopping DWs and Baers.

    Small and tasteful. I like Colt rollmarks, except the atrocity of the original 1991 models. Naked runs a very close second. Once I get my perfect carry Colt I think I'll be done with rollmarks and stick to plain.

    Medium rare, otherwise the chewing just goes on and on.

    I'm more of an inside man, than an outside man, but if all things inside are equal, I will buy the one whose outside has the cleanest lines.

    If the pistol I like (at the moment) is something that I can only get with FCS, that won't stop me from buying it.

    As far as custom work, I'm more inclined to value inside work over outside work. Simple front strap checkering is all I really require, but I like the functionality of the snake-skin on my Kobra. I'm one not who'd send out a piece just for french borders, or arrow shaped slide top serrations. They can look cool, but are just not for me.

    Fair enough. But how do you like your guns?

    I go both ways.

    I love the nekkidness of the Wessons. No FCS or large roll marks. Simple. However, I also love a French border, press checks and top serrations. Nekkid other than that.

    Well, I don't like roll marks of ANY KIND...except for a rampant colt in the right place on a slide, if it is deep enough to be salvaged after finishing. That being said, not much of a fan of front cocking serrations either. I guess other than that pretty much anything goes...but then you all have seen that on my guns. ;-) I like them naked just as well as decked out!
