On St. Patrick’s Day, Everyone’s Irish. Even Glock.

Not sure about this one. I mean, the base material in crayons is, um, WAX, right? And wax melts when it gets warm, right? And when you shoot a gun, the heat generated from the gunpowder’s ignition is absorbed by the barrel, which then conducts it to the slide, right? Which would make this green Crayola lettering melt faster than Margaret Hamilton in the final reel of The Wizard of Oz, right? Of course, in the true spirit of St. Paddy’s Day, you just do it, and leave the consequences for somebody who cares, to take care of later. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you. And remember, alcohol and guns DON’T MIX. Not even that green beer. And you don’t buy beer. You rent it. Words to live by.

    My five year old nephew could do a better job of coloring inside the lines. Of course, we wouldn’t give him a Glock to work on. The kid’s strictly a Smith and Wesson man.

    I’ve been doing this for years, on all my Glocks. White crayon makes it stand out and make your gun just a little different. The guy in the video does not clean the residual very well but if done right it looks great. On my M&P 15-22 I colored ‘FIRE’ red and ‘SAFE’ white. It helps for people not familiar with the gun to quickly make the weapon safe.

      But my question still stands – once you start running your gun at the range and it heats up, won’t the crayon melt right out?
