    I'd avoid it because it might not be as easy to resell (unless of course you really just want a pink gun, then great).

    And from what I read about Taurus, resale might be an issue sooner than you think.

    This is what's keeping me.

    I really don't care about the color, it's not going to be for me. It'd be the fiance's gun, and also something I wouldn't hate myself for carrying on a day I desired something smaller. I like multi-purposed purchases. I won't be changing out my EDC anytime soon, especially for a pink Taurus.

    Ah hell, I should just go the G26 route and find some pink Krylon Fusion for her.

    Taurus makes good quality firearms these days. Lifetime warranty, for the life of the gun, not the original purchaser. I have a 709 and my father in law has a 111. Flawless, accurate, small, and light with many rounds through both and no issues. Go for it. If you get a good price on it, resale value is not so much of an issue.

    Hang out on forums for a while and you will learn that someone, somewhere, has had an issue with EVERY manufacturer at some point in time. There are plenty of Taurus owners on this forum who have numerous Tauri (?) and never had a problem.

    All good points.

    As it should, it'll come down to going to a range and having her (and myself) shoot a few rented guns.

    Thanks for the input everyone, even you Don.

    I heard that the bullets out of pink guns don't hurt as much!!

    Seriously, if it's a CCW what does it matter? I'm more interested in my ability with and the reliability of the weapon.

    Get the GLOCK 26 and just tell her it's pink, a very very very very very very dark shade of pink.

    I haven't read all the posts so if this point has been made, oops. I think carrying a pink gun concealed could potentially be an excellent SD tactic. Think about it, if you are in a scenario where you have to draw, the big flash of pink might cause just enough hesitation on the BG's part to give you an advantage. I don't see any downside to the pink other than having to deal with the homophobia of others.

    Pink is a tactical advantage

    When you present a pink weapon is a SD situation you will gain a tactial advantage.

    ...A Glock 22 in a yellow/purple plaid that is both Loud and Obnoxious

    FWIW, I think pink guns in gun cases and the men who try to direct a newbie female in the pink gun direction are more than a little offensive. Seeing gun dealers in You Tube videos talking up the pink guns in a review for women without referencing whether or not they sell at all, is slightly offensive.

    I am a woman in the market for a gun. Not a woman in the market for an accessory. Nothing about my process for purchasing a gun has anything to do with "style" issues.... I want a gun to be shootable, functionally reliable, well made, well backed up by its manufactuer, affordable.... resellable if it comes to that. What I don't care to consider even for half a second: Is it pretty?

    If gun cases were comparably equipped with colorful but not pink guns, which both gals and girls could choose the "pretty" option of the brand/model they are sold on, this post would be different.

    Granted, there are men who buy 100 year old guns for style value. They don't expect or anticipate in most cases (debatable?) to actually use them for self defense purposes. They collect expensive and out-dated or otherwise kind of absurd weapons for no other reason than that they are rare and therefore somehow valuable. What they do not do? Buy new purple, green, orange, yellow, acqua, azure, plaid or red guns, or guns with colorful applique'd NRA logos (so far as I can tell).

    Where is the evidence that all these pink guns have been manufactured because of some huge female demand for them? If it is there, if it is female purchasing power that is driving the ubiquity of these guns, that's the story I'm not getting.

    What I am getting? Stories about huge liquidations and radically low pricing on pink guns.... everywhere.

    Oh... and I have yet to see a pink semi-auto actually for sale. If my chosen Glock 22 (not yet acquired) came in a yellow/purple plaid that was both loud and obnoxious, I might buy one just to get the rocks of the BG off. Do I think a pink gun would really make that big an impact on a BG? Not really.

    Im not a fan of pink anything, let alone guns, but who cares about the color, as long as it fires correctly.

    Speaking of which, im glad to see some optimism on your part about this brand. My wife has a black/stainless PT111 Mil Pro thats been rock solid reliable since day 1. Do some research online about these guns, and you'll find out that the early generations did have some issues, but they have been corrected. If your going 9MM, buy 3rd gen.
