Walther has a colt authorized 1911 clone in 22 that would work pretty good. Idk how comfortable she is with larger frames. You could also do a xdm or something

She prefers my 1911 over anything else. I plan on making one with a Caspian frame and slide.

Focus less on the proposal and more on the marriage--show her that the best really is yet to be.

Don't buy into the culture of doing something to post on YouTube, or even photograph.

Don't involve any technological devices.

Does that concern you?

I should clarify; the "fabulous" part should be that you're asking in the first place. There is not an award for "best proposal," the reward is that you spend your lives together.

Do NOT propose in public with cameras and friends watching unless you have absolutely no doubt she will say yes. Even then -- just don't do that.

Try to incorporate something you both have in common. My sister just got engaged to her boyfriend at the finish line after they did a half iron man together. It was so sweet because it connected their shared interest of triathlons.
