Back in the day I paid Lauer Weaponry to repaint a Springfield XD-M with an American flag. In my defense, the kitsch pistol was an ironic statement: an exact copy of the image the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence used to promote its anti-gun rights agenda. On top of irony, given that the XD-M is a Croation creation. As for this snakeskin Smith, I get it. But I don’t particularly like it. The markings lack . . . context. Flair. Joie de vivre. Unless you’re a fan of Escape from New York. Then it is, as art critics say in the Ocean State, wikkid pissa.

  1. Interesting Pop-Culture Referance, is there an APP for that?
    Personaly I would have opted for a Jamie McPheeters call-back but I doubt anyone would would have had a clue……..despite the common denominator of injection molded plastic

  2. The commentator’s lack of better words and constant pop-culture references push me away. If the gun really does have a lot in common with the Kardashians and Ellen DeGeneres, it must be on the verge of falling apart from the multiple personalities. Myeh, I’m in favor of the free market, including my ability not to buy every piece of schlock that comes along.

  3. Greg,

    Have to disagree my friend, I have always found this commentator very interesting, and entertaining and he really does great videos.


    • I normally agree, but this video lacked his usual flair. Almost like he did it after a heavy night of drinking. Also the gun didn’t impress me that much.

  4. Best part of that movie was Adrienne Barbeau (woof woof), playing Maggie – girlfriend of the Brain.

  5. Snakeskin is not necessarily my cup of tea, but it definitely does make the gun stand out in a non-obnoxious way. I know Cerakote gives better grip and durability, but how does that balance with the cost?
