absolutely. Guns are tools.

I understand that some people collect tools and like to keep them pretty and all - I'd love to be able to afford it myself. While I wouldn't modify or paint up something really old, unique, and valuable, plenty of people did which is why they are so unique and valuable today.

Interestingly enough, some painted up guns and magazines, like Rhodesian FALs, are highly desirable because of the paint and provenance.
