    As hideous as that thing is to my cynical eyes, if it gets someone's wife, daughter, sister, etc. into shooting, then it's a beaut.

    Thats right! My 4 yr old daughter loves to go to the gun shop or scheels because both have "pink" rifles that I let her hold. That and petting various fur pelts dangling around the store.

    Would I be caught with a pink gun? NO!!! Would I own one if it would get a child or spouse interested in the shooting sports? Yes.
    Of course I'd lie to all my friends and swear it didn't belong to me. Was left by a relative for safe keeping, while they are out of the country for a year or two hundred!!!

    Darn tootin! I held a pink cricket up to my daughter when she was just a year old and she went nutso over it.

    Looks like I may have to make a trip up to that new store next week to see what all they have.


    edit: Having a pink gun in the house wouldn't make me feel like any less of a man. Ted Nugent has at least one pink camo AR that he was making Jim Z(D)umbo shoot to show him that they are not evil black rifles.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    My 5yr. old daughter saw the pic of the newly released for '08 pink grip insert Julie Goloski edition S&W M&P pistol and she said to me that when I get her a "shooter" (her name for guns) she wants hers to be pink too. Most everything she has is pink which is her favorite color and I would not think to get her anything other than a pink detail *.anything and that includes her first firearm.
    Hell I'd even sport pink grip panels on my 1911 if she got them for me (or they made me more accurate) and I wear on the street including to IDPA a bracelet she made for me of alternating color tone pink wooden beads that have the letters 'DADA' amongst them on my shooting hand. Nobody does or would say jack to me about it either.

    BTW in Japan the color pink is and has long been a color of extreme masculinity, the polar opposite of which here in the US. Then there were the Brit's SAS of WWII with their 'Pink Panthers' to which no one would question either...



    If pink colored stocks and grips get ladies and women in general to even look at muchless participate in hunting, or sporting competition, or defensive arms then hey I'm all for it and would choose to buy a pink this or that myself to support as much. And I would hope someone would ask me about it too as I'd tell them the same and ask they do the same for their mother, wife, or daughter.
