    Here's what I did for my wife:

    S&W Model 36 "Lady Smith" in .38 special

    Then I headed over to Pistol Grips, Revolver Grips and Handgun Grips: grips4guns.com and bought the Excaliber Rosewood checkered boot grips. The gun is gorgeous but still carries a serious caliber - she is ecstatic - and the grips are beautiful yet functional. She thinks her gun is one of a kind so she feels special.

    Good Luck!

    P.S. Please don't tell her if you decide to do the same thing.

    My daughter wants hot pink. I think if I could get a pink grip and then have the cylinder duracoated hot pink, she'd be just tickled pink....

    Am I the only one that thinks a pink gun in not a good idea? If it was my wife or girlfriend and they were in a situation I dont want the bad guy to think its a toy.
    If you pull a gun you should be prepared to use it but I think that a BG might not take it seriously and not retreat when he might have before.

    I think it's irrelevant. If one is getting attacked or threatened and the perp proceeds with the attack after having a gun ( toy looking or not ) pointed at them, sucks to be them. Chances are, the perp is going to take it seriously. The pink gun in the above post is a little over the top I'd say.
    She's not wanting a totally pink gun. Just maybe a pink handle and pink cylinder.

    So, what's wrong with Taurus? I've owned a PT92AFS for over 15 years, and it has always worked for me. Goes bang every time I pull the trigger, and puts the shots where I want them to go.

    But it would also "suck" to be the bloke who was forced into pulling the trigger. Any time a self-defense shooting takes place, both parties lose, not just the perp. The ensuing quagmire of a criminal and/or civil trial, lost income and legal expenses is nothing to take lightly, not that I think you were. It's just that anything that can help someone not have to pull the trigger should be eagerly welcomed.

    As much as I wish it were otherwise, I think that pjw315 really does have a point. When the gun that the woman is using to hold a determined adversary at bay is hot pink, I think there is a very good chance that there would be confusion about whether the gun is real or not. Hot pink guns just aren't seen very often in real life, and never (to my knowledge) in the movies, which unfortunately is where a lot of punks get their "education" .

    Also, remember that it's hard enough for many criminals to permit a woman to "control" them (psychologically speaking) even when she is sending a clear message that she means what she says and the BG better mind himself. Many, if not most, of these morons are very misogynistic. Because of this, anything that makes a woman's image seem more serious and businesslike is a very good thing when attempting to control such a criminal. A pink gun is just too "cute". It sends a confusing message in my opinion, one that, while in reality not at all contradictory (nothing wrong with beautifying our tools), your average thick-skulled criminal would have a difficult time sorting out.

    Anyway, that's what I think. Sorry to contribute to the digression here, but I thought it was worth talking about.

    On topic:

    Have you been to TJ's Custom Gunworks? I think they will be able to take care of you very nicely. TJ offers lots of different frame color options, some of which are quite wild. There are lots of photo galleries on his site showing his work, too. Here's the link to his main page:

    TJ's Custom Gunworks - Master Pistolsmithing - Gunsmithing With Pride & Craftsmanship For Over 20 Years

    Though there aren't many options for a pink gun coming straight from the manufacturer, if you want to spend a little there is almost always a way to get what you want. As others have mentioned, DuraCoat is promising, though I haven't any personal experience with it.

    A gun is a tool, a deadly serious one and to have it in pink makes light of that fact. It is not a fashion accessory. If she were my daughter I would impress that fact to her. Just my 2 cents
    Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
