Default Cerakoting a Handgun - Recommendations ?

Has anybody on here had good luck with having a firearm cerakoted locally ?
Can you give me a recommendation ?
I know about TGD and have already talked with them. They are in the running but would like to check out others also.

Paul Boyden is hands down one of the best around and he does TGDs work. I haven't seen anyone else local that is close to his work.

I'm sure this was my fault for just making an assumption that my rifle would be returned to me in the same state that I dropped it off, but make sure after you get it back from TGD, you clean the crap out of it.

I had my AR10 done by them, took it in there all perfectly cleaned, got it back and took it directly to go shoot. I didn't know what the heck was going on when it would shoot the chambered round but it wouldn't cycle the next round. Turns out there was some kind of sand or grit or something obviously used in the process all in the action and barrel. A good thorough cleaning and it was good to go, just glad I didn't do as much damage as I could have.

He even dipped my Honda Pioneer fenders and hood.

Thanks, I contacted him but he was $25 more than TGD and Navarre is out of my way.
Looks like he does good work though.

If I decide to do it, based on recommendations and quoted price, I will most likely go with TGD (Paul Boyden).
I need to shoot the gun first and make sure all is well. It's a cool old High Standard .22 snub, made in 1960. All seems to be good with it but don't want to spend the money until I make sure it shoots good.
I think it will look great in Titanium or Burnt Bronze.

I had something similar happen when I got a Rem 700 bolt Cerakoted (not by TGD). The item is blasted with aluminum oxide before coating and my ejector wasn't working once I got the bolt back. It turned out that my ejector hole was completely filled with aluminum oxide grit.
