    I think you may have missed the point. They're not just hollow points - they're reduced recoil and THEY'RE PINK!

    I like the idea of supporting breast cancer research, but I question the use of lighter bullets in this loading. I know that the concept was to create a lower recoiling round but at what cost? You are basically castrating what is a pretty good defensive caliber. Of course, since these are being marketed to women, I suppose a "castrated" load is appropriate.

    While I personally would prefer a heavier bullet if a gimmick or pink bullet will draw more women to the shooting sports or self defense I am all for it.

    Wish they made them in .357 mag hollow points. I might be tempted. Looking down the muzzle of my gun with pink bullets seen in the cylinder might make a BG think twice. "Do I really want to be killed with pink bullets?" Don't think I'll change my grips for pink ones though.

    One thought . . . how many men would steal a pink gun? How many men would shoot one?

    Now if Hornady really wanted to support breast cancer . . . they should make pink bullets for machine guns!

    I think this whole thing is a stupid concept. If someone can't handle a .38 .... . go buy one of the new .380 revolvers or a semi and get over it.

    It's for the ladies and gents with wrist/strength problems who get suckered in by the gunstore guru's selling airweights to people that have never shot a gun before - easier to deal with than a new pistol they can't shoot.

    now we have fashion bullets and zombie bullets. Girls need to look fashionable while shooting zombies in the head.

    It is a sign of distress. Something this country hasn't even begun to see since Obama Bin Ladin was re-elected.

    My buddy shoots .38 Special. I'll get him a box. Unfortunately he's a BIG man. Fortunately I can run faster than him. I have to wonder if I can outrun a pink bullet, though. lol. A dab of aluminum paint to cover the pink might be the answer.

    I have light loads for my wife's 642 (with pink grips) and she can shoot all day long. If I used the standard 38 specials, she would stop after 50rds assuming she uses her gel glove...

    I will get a box and see if they are comparable to what she shoots now as a light load...

    Hate to revive an old thread however I finally found some of this ammo after looking since last year.
    38 Special 90 gr FTX® Critical Defense® LITE

    Then at a gun show i found some Hornady lite 38 with pink tips. This will go with my girl gun collection on the wall of diversity.
