Ok.... slight derail!
I'm thinking anodized or stainless
And yes, it will be a tool!
A tool for sef defense!
If I happen to put some holes in someone with it, it will be because that was the most suited tool for the job at the time!

I do wish there were fewer of them out there but our culture is what it is. They are't going away so strict punishments for using them in crime and reasonable rules for ownership and use are just good sense in my opinion. My step father had many guns and most of my friends have them, some several, but all of the above kept/keep them safe and unlikely to be used inappropriately or stolen so as to enter the illegal gun market.
And even though I don't own one, I think they're absolutely fascinating. It's just that I'd rather spend the money on another guitar. But I really think they're... I'll say it... cool. The history, the lore, the tech, the craftsmanship, the amazing skill in their making and when they are used well.
And I'm glad I've never had to direct one at another living creature so far.
It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a golden age; but, if so, it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door, and this dragon is religion.
Guns help Frank Lee achieve and maintain a full, firm erection.
Effective on the range = Unstoppable during a shootout
Bullets turn people into pulp
Entirely non-metallic guns exist
Guns fire when dropped
Bullets make metallic things spark on contact
Silencers make gunfire sound like a barely audible little "fwhip" (unless it's something like a .22 or 9mm with a wet supressor, those are pretty quiet).
Machine guns can fire forever and turn one man into an everlasting murder machine
Bullets make things explode
Bulletproof vests just let you laugh off gunfire
You can cock your firearm dramatically before you waste somebody after a gunfight and not drop a fresh round to the floor.

You can shoot for 2 minutes without reloading...a handgun....
If you're the good guy in an action movie, all or most of your shots will connect with "bad guy" targets, while every one of their hundreds and hundreds of automatic-fire rounds will fail to hit anyone.
Just about every gun related thing seen in a movie = myth.
What??? You've never pumped a loaded shotgun every 3rd step, without ejecting anything?
Yes, that's true. If you're a bad guy with a pump shotgun, you have to rack the slide before and after every shot. At least.
Most of these have been covered here, but these articles are still a pretty funny read.
Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
