Whats a good place to get it done? Also how much would it cost for me to get 4 Japanese Kanji symbols put on my gun cost? (Two on each side, standing for Honor)

Thanks,
Ted

why wouldn't you just put honor on both sides?

because english letters are gay

who wants to see H-O-N-O-R when you could see some fancy symbol like http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.childbook.com/images/coloring/character-honor.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.childbook.com/free/pictures.html&h=792&w=612&sz=44&hl=en&start=9&tbnid=Ds1quzoccD0tVM:&tbnh=143&tbnw=111&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dhonor%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D% 26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN

I like english letters because I speak english, It's simpler and It is an more practical in my opinion because it takes lesstime to write in my experience. I hate in when people say wow thats cool because it is written or spoken in another language

Back on topic

Local may engravers seem expensive at first but you must add shipping to the equation. I guess then you have to add tax too

I hope you get the laser engraving in a font size big enough to read, unlike the font you are using here. :dodgy:

FBM does engraving, ODD does it also, but he does bigger projects.

The font I am using is big enough for me, and I am running at 1280x1024 screen resolution.

That's what I am putting on it. Minus "Honor" underneath. I am positive it's the correct Kanji sign for Honor because I looked it up everywhere, cross referenced it, and looked it up in a Japanese Kanji book. This is also the tattoo I want to get on my back below my neck.

This would go on either side of my MR1. (Yes the ingraving will cost more then the initial gun it's self. But it will make it that much more unique and more "MY" gun.

How well do you think a non japanese speaking/writing person could write that mean kanji are really detailed

I am going to get it done by the same guy Taco did. I loved his DM. I see the pics the guy had up too.

I am trying to deside if I want "Honor" on both sides or if I want it on the MR1 side, then on the opposite side put a small picture... If so, I want to put a sweet looking spade or something. (Ace of spades is my lucky card/callsign).

Do you guys know of any sweet Spade designs? Or maybe even the actual Ace of Spades card. (Only with a sweet looking spade in it... hmm)

What do you guys think?
