Why do you care what someone else does to their property? Their guns are their guns, if a pink 1911 with rhinestone grips gets another women out to the range and helps her protect herself and her family I am so all for it. If a pink 22 rifle gets a daughter out to the range to enjoy bonding time whit her father I am all for it. I didn't see any rules that said the only good guns are black, blued, stainless, and or wood.
That's true I like that Comment you just made

I saw what I believe was a S&W AR at the gun show yesterday that was tiger striped pink and black camo. I honestly that it looked kind of cool.

it took me a while to come to this realization, but ultimately the way I look at things now is - as gun owners, we have enough competition from crazy, freedom hating, life controlling gun nazis that want to take our guns away regardless of what color they are...so w/ that being said, whats the point of arguing amongst ourselves? It's only fuel for their fire.

You don't like pink guns? Great. Neither do I. But I do like an 8" Colt Python, to which my wife exclaims "that's freaking ridiculous, nobody needs a gun that looks like that"

Tit for Tat. Instead of wasting time & energy concentrating on the guns we don't like, how about we instead spend our efforts against the PEOPLE we don't like (gun control freaks) and either convince them of their childish ways or make the rest of the world see them for what they are - completely out of touch idiots.

its not reliability its the trigger. you almost need two fingers to pull it through the DA pull. the single action when its cocked isnt much better. if it wasnt for the craptastic trigger it would probably be the perfect 22lr pistol

i just hope someday i can find a smith that can fix it

Some seem to think that a pink gun is more "unsafe" than a black (or maybe cammo) gun. I really don't think it matters a bit. It doesn't matter if it looks like a toy, because it should not ever be in the hands of anyone who might think it is a toy anyway. It is hard to believe that people who are passionate about the constitution and freedom of choice, etc., etc. would be offended by a pink gun. Personally, I would not have a pink gun cause I think it is ugly, and I might be a bit suspect of the guy shooting three tables away from me shooting a pink AR. (that is more my problem than the shooters) But what the heck, it doesn't affect me, so What Me Worry. I tend to believe that people shouldn't shoot plastic guns, but I usually don't mention it to anyone shooting one at the range.
