Imagine the idiot that survives the shot and has to explain to his boyfriend bubba how his victim shot him with a Hot Pink pistol, when this hits the news in prison.

You do not work for them, they work for you.
Also, just because Taurus offers a pink revolver, I'm not giving up quality for color.
I personally don't see why people get so upset at colored guns. A gun is a tool, yes it is, however if it gets a person more apt to protect themselves because they like carrying a pink gun, then so be it. A car is also a tool and can be just as deadly, yet you see cars in all sorts of colors. Whats the difference in what color a gun is anyway? My wife wanted stained wooden grips for her bersa, got them and she couldn't be happier with it. Sure stained grips and a colored gun is a big difference, but they are both the same principle. Both are cosmetic only, persoanl preferences and have no effect on how the gun works. What difference does the color of a gun make? Whats the difference, other than personal and individual taste between a pink taurus or glock, and a bead blasted j-frame? Nobody is going to see the gun anyway except the person carrying it and in a shtf situation, the bad guy on the business end of the gun. At that point, I really don't think anyone will care what color the gun is.

I have seen pink guns over the years and the hubby calls them "pimp guns".
I really think pink is good for hair barrettes and watch bands....but not a weapon.
A weapon, IMO, is not a fashion accessory, but a self defense tool.
I know, there are pink hammers and screwdrivers, but I find those silly too.
This is personal choice. BUT if this is what it takes for your daughter to get a weapon for self defense and learn to use it.....find her a good pink gun.

Glock 19/FEG/FM HiPowers/Keltec P32 for me. When I can't use my 870,N98 or Marlin .30-30 of course...
If Pink is such a bad thing for a gun, then why do we all get "nice looking" guns with the fancy wood grips, or great looking holsters that go beyond basic functionality. Lets not be hypocrites just be the color pink is now involved! Many of us select models of guns that are nickel plated, or stainless slide, Bi-toned whatever. Why? because we like the LOOKS of it. Why is pink any different?
FYI - personally I really don't like the idea of a pink gun - simply because pink isn't my color, however I just bought my daughter her first gun, a PINK Crosman 760 pumpmaster airgun (BB/Pellet).
"Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.
We had a Kel Tec P32 Dura coated in pink that looked like the gun had been dipped in Pepto Bismol. Now the bad news is the guy who had it done for his girl got dumped between the time he ordered it and it came back. The good news is he kept it and shot it. When I saw it last it had had around 200 rounds of FMJ and 20 of JHP and there was only slight wear on the finish. No worries for maintenence or durability.
If she likes it and will carry it, I wouldn't care if it was pink, blue or green apple green.
Although I love the Smith Wesson, the barrel has to be pink. It needs more pink!~
Now that I am older and have a better understanding of myself, I need a pink revolver and haven't found the one.
I know guys that like pink guns...... o Yea... I think!
My Smith air weight has pink grips. It came with both pink and black grips, but why not use the pink if I have the option siting right in front of me?
I realize you're not very interested in a Charter Arms, but two quick points for anyone else who might be reading (or in case you have a change of heart).Yeah this is the only other one I've found besides the Taurus. Not real crazy about the Charter Arms and it being only 12 oz it wont do her. She hates my 642 because it is so light. A pink Hogue Grip would suit me fine, but they dont make them.
You're correct that Hogue doesn't make a pink grip that fits CA revolvers. (It took me two emails to Hogue CS and a 10 day wait to confirm this...), but CA does sell a pink grip for their revolvers on their website.Charter Accessories Store Product Display
Second, CA also makes a DAO revolver that's a little "heavier" than the 12 oz model you mentioned. The Undercover DAO weighs in at 16 oz. Charter Undercover DAO #73811
I learned these things while researching a gun purchase for my daughter. She initially liked CA's pink guns, but later decided they had "too much" pink. OTOH, she liked a S&W w/ stainless frame and pink grips. I was pushed for time and had a hard time finding any DAO, s/s frame, light weight, 38 spec guns in stock. I ended up w/ the CA "Undercover" DAO w/ s/s frame and added the pink grips. She likes the combo. I'll also add that the pink grips from the CA store are slightly bigger than the compact grips that come w/ the gun. The pink grips have room for the pinky. Maybe it'll help in controlling the gun better.
During my research, I also came across a Ruger LCR w/ pink grips. It was a limited production for a specific distributor and was no longer available.
