If anyone should start an Initiator gallery, it should be me. :D

Here's a picture of four of my Initiators. (L-R): My current flight Initiator, my NARAM-50 Initiator signed by Apollo 7 astronaut Walt Cunningham, a special 20th Anniversary Initiator in black & gold colors (Thanks, Stickershock) and my retired 50+ flights Initiator.

I have see many different Initiator color schemes and modifications over the years. I hope folks will post pictures of their Initiators. ;)
