Pretty little sweetheart of twenty-something strolled in with a Derringer and asked if I could put a name on it. Told her I could. When she gave me HIS name, I was surprised it was for him, not her. These little gems are most often found in a woman’s purse or some hidden compartment of an undergarment, I’d think. It would almost fit in his watch pocket.
Now, I don’t have any idea the motivation for giving the old boy a pistol as a wedding gift. You’d think he’d be here having it engraved with her name. Would be great for self-defense in the parking garage at the mall. The little .22 caliber bullets could mess up some flesh and do major damage if up close and personal.
Anyway, I took the piece and engraved his name and wedding date on the top. A couple of days later, she returned and was thrilled with the work and the forty-eight dollars I charged her for the 5 minute job. As she walked out of the Studio, I reminded her to tell him not to leave it at the scene of the crime.
So, now I have another engraved gun photo in my collection. This might be a pretty cool service to offer at a knife and gun show sometime!
