I just couldn't even touch a pink gun, I'm not the pink and frilly type, and I tend to snicker to myself when I see one.
Pink is bad enough to me but I really wondered about a customer who wanted a purple 1911 embroidered on a fleece jacket, and remembered the customer is always right. He loved the jacket, me err...

Pink was once considered a very masculine color, so I've read. Just because you're about 200 years late on that.......

pink ... is .... not .... for .... me
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Also, I honestly wouldn't buy this gun, even for my wife. Even though it's for CC, everyone's gun inadvertently peeks out every now and then. Only with this gun, everyone is sure to notice. A big line or blurb of pink isn't going to go unnoticed over a little piece of black.
My wife owned a Keltec P3at for 3 years. She shot it great but I could never get her to carry it. One day we were shopping and she saw a pink revolver she liked. We shot it and bought it. Now she won't leave the house without it. I don't get it but hey, if it gets her to carry it then.... whatever...
If you pull out a pink gun and the BG dies laughing, is that considered using lethal force?

In fact it was that way in the US up until the 60s where as yellow prior had been the color avoided by males.
Now it's not uncommon to see men wearing yellow ties, shorts, driving & riding in yellow conveyances...and running yellow colored guns.
Outside the US pink remains to be just another regular meaningless color akin to green, blue, red or brown.
In Japan though pink remains considered to be a color of virility and masculinity.
Personally I would have no problem with a pink colored gun, and would in fact choose to buy one with pink/salmon accent...

Hey, maybe some day it will be a collectors item. If not, Krylon is supposed to cover about anything..
The guy who did my hubby's CHP class mentioned pink guns, and said "If a lady pulls a pink gun you KNOW it's hers, and she knows how to use it, it's not her husband's or her boyfriend's, it's HER gun."
I have a "raspberry" LCP and it is the same color as my cell phone holster, so in my pocket looks the same if it peeks out.

I am unsure about the colored guns. My kids are grown, so that's not my concern. My grandkids will not have access to my guns. But I can only be accountable for my guns. I have somewhat of a concern that a colored gun might be a kid magnet. I know all guns are kid magnets. I am concerned that a kid that knew better than to touch a gun without supervision might think the colored gun was not real and pick it up (even though they should not have access to the gun). Even an adult might not realize the gun was real. People are dazzeled by shiny objects.
