    Hmm.... that's nifty. Wouldn't mind trying a few of those just to see how different the recoil really is.


    But, out of a longer barrel, wouldn't the lighter round have a higher velocity? Might be similar velocities from a short barrel, but shouldn't it be higher from a longer barrel?

    I'm curious too. I know my wife would like less recoil and she'd think the bullets were pretty!

    Of course, knowing I had been shot with a pink gun would be bad enough, but a pink gun shooting pink bullets...

    All women, who choose to carry a pink gun shooting pink ammo, should always empty the gun into vital areas as the BG will never be able to live it down in prison. Be kind out there!

    If they accomplish the same thing with a lighter recoil then there will be better controllability and less flinching which could cause misses especially in SD situations.As always you need to practice with your firearm regularly

    I wonder how they got a lighter recoiling cartridge to hit at the exact same "point of impact" as a heavier recoiling round?

    That's what I was thinking. Probably by adjusting the sight picture.

    If it's the same price point, effectively does the same damage, provides the potential for people not to be afraid to shoot and anticipate recoil (flinch), AND they give a portion to breast cancer research.. is it still a gimmick round? Probably, but to each their own, I guess.

    How about a round that actually performs well? Maybe they should concentrate on that before pretty colors...

    Just a thought.

    I think it's funny how it's obviously being marketed towards women without actually SAYING that it's for women (it's for "all shooters").
