    Well, that part will definitely work on me. I don't want to be shooting a pink gun.

    I just about bought the pink P380 when my wife said she wanted it knowing full well that it would become mine if she didn't like it. She had the same idea and decided that we should get a black one for that very reason. I was cool with either color. If not, I could have just told people that it was my wife's gun.

    The baddest dude in the county should carry a bright pink gun. Think about it. If a dude is willing to pull a pink gun on you, he doesn't have any regard for anything or anybody. He just doesn't care, and he will take you out just for something to do.

    While my first thought was, "that's just wrong", I have to admit that when I saw your M&P45 I understood completely. Good deal!!!

    Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.

    My 8 year old daughter asked me "Why do you need a black gun".

    She shoots a pink Crickett (looking to upgrade), and I couldn't be happier. Who cares what it looks like, she is shooting, and enjoying it, and I get to take her to the range. If Pink gets her to the range, then I am all for it. Its just a color, it doesn't affect the mechanics.

    Why do guys need to have OD Green, BiTones, black, etc? It is only a color - it still goes BANG.

    To blend in and not be seen? Tell her that we like to take our guns places and don't want people to see them. I guess girls could claim the same thing with a pink gun. It blends in with my pink shirt.

    Here is a 10/22 I did for my 14 year old grand daughter's birthday in February. She told me pink, but I decided on red, white and blue zebra stripes. She loves it and shoots it well also. Only one like it in the world and I am not sure I would do another. It is DuraCoat

    I like coyote brown pistols since they do hide a bit better then black. Someone sees that color holster or pistol sticking out a bit their brain might not think pistol so fast.

    It sure looks purdy! Doesn't look bad at all.

    As long as she's happy with it.
