When did we allow women the right to keep and bear arms? That doesn't sound like a good idea at all.

szyska: Even better - something akin to cell phone casings that would fit around the grip of the gun. Tired of pink? Snap it off and go for sparkling turquoise! Or skulls! Or flags! (That one would probably sell like hotcakes.)

Don't encourage...

When I was in Arizona I noticed that Cabela's was selling a tiny pink 22-cal single shot rifle. Just the right size to be your 6-year-old buttercup's first rifle.

ne2d: The only problem I have with this is that anyone vapid enough to want a gun as a fashion accessory is probably not going to handle/store it safely, and a child would be very likely to think that it's a toy.


Not really - I'd say there's a decent portion of people out there that realize they might want a certain tool to accomplish a certain task. If that tool can also fit into a category they find to be visually appealing, they the hell shouldn't they be able to get it?

That same argument would say that anyone who chromes out the engine of their muscle car isn't going to regularly maintain the engine.

bluehubcap: If someone pulled a pink handgun (a Hello Kitty one, no less) on me, I'd die laughing before they could shoot me.


Wanna bet on that? Might need to reverse the laughing/dying order. Or just leave out the laughing part.

JesseL: elev8meL8r: Not having shot a human, I don't speak from experience. But I'm guessing a .22 in the nuts is an effective deterrent.

Maybe, but if the deterrent threat aspect fails it's a lousy way to stop an attacker. Especially if you aim for the testicles.


If you're in a war zone shooting at professional soldiers wearing body armor or in a gun fight at the OK Corral then you want a gun with real stopping power, if you want to stop a mugger I guarantee a .22 will take care of it.

/ok maybe if your mugger has smoked enough PCP it might take a few rounds but a .22 is still plenty dangerous

This this.


There are practical reasons for having a pink gun. Much easier to find in a purse. Much less likely to be wrestled out of your grip since the evil doer will think it's just a toy. Much less likely to draw attention from the police so you can in effect have an open carry without all the nonsense. Pink guns are a lot less disconcerting to the panties-in-a-bunch busybodies.
I personally prefer squirt-gun day-glow green with an orange tip but that's more of a fashion statement. And a purple wide brimmed hat with a feather in it.

SKMO:

I accidentally started the .22 debate by posting above about what my grandmother carries. I actually wish she did carry a bit more gun for self-defense. However, it is not an easy choice.
Problems:

1.) She is a *tiny* woman. Just five foot tall, and less than one hundred pounds. Her husband has a .45 ACP pistol, but it's way too strong for her. I think there is a good chance 9mm would have too much kick, too.
2.) They don't have a lot of money. The 22 (magnum, if that helps) is not powerful, but the ammo was cheap enough for her to actually be able to practice with it.
3.) She grew up on a farm shooting DA revolvers. She definitely would prefer a snubbie over an auto pistol.

So, any advice?

A .22 is good for all the reasons you listed. But also you usually can't tell a .22 from a larger caliber pistol at a quick glance and most .22 pistols are plenty loud so you still have the intimidation factor. And even a very determined attacker is unlikely to face down a gun let alone take a slug and keep coming. I know the self-defense purists say that you should shoot to kill, then keep shooting until the target is goo but it's very unlikely(I hope) that your grandmother will ever need to fire her weapon in self defense and even if she does only an animal or somebody seriously out of it on drugs is going to shrug off a round even from a .22. And don't fool yourself, a round from a .22 pistol may not shatter large bones but it can be deadly.

It can fire .32 magnum and .32 S&W longs. Might be a little harder to find ammo, but if she's into smaller caliber revolvers...

More people are killed in the USA by .22LR ammunition than any other cartridge. By far.

We were trying to choose a handgun for my wife to carry, and I suggested a .380.
"What's a .380?"
"It's shorter and less powerful than a regular 9mm."
"Don't you love me anymore?"

I got her a 340PD J-frame. Nothing says love like a .357 Magnum.

you should have said "yes, I love you enough not to buy you a gun that you will likely drop screaming if you fire it."


Dude, my wife shot twenty .357 Magnum rounds out of that 11.4-ounce revolver at the range... which was fifteen more than any of the men fired, including me. My hand was sore for three days. Hers was swollen up for a week... but she can handle her gun.

As I understand it, a .22 can kill someone, but unless it hits in a vital area, it won't do so quickly.

I would consider any pink gun, especially one sporting hello kitty logos, as far more dangerous in a house with kids. I would think these guns would be more likely to identify as "toy" than "gun" to a child.

Of course, keep 'em in a safe or locked up and you won't have a problem.

The article is a little nonsensical, saying "gun manufacturers" are offering stuff like that. Every image they show is a one-off example from a custom shop. A few manufacturers have offered stuff like a colored slide or grip insert, but nothing as silly as crystal-studded Hello Kitty.

This. If your kid can get ahold of your gun, the least of your worries should be whether or not the color scheme makes it look like a toy.

Yeah, but the type who assaults little old ladies isn't know for their ability to stand up to resistance. A few really loud bangs and some red red kroovy flowing will have the guy running (limping) for the hills.

The problem is other people have guns that they don't lock up. Growing up (pre-trigger lock days), we were taught that if we ever found a gun anywhere we should go find an adult. Of course, if the thing a kid found was pink, plastic, and had the same logo as my sister's backpack, the "gun" flag might not be set.

Not something that keeps me up nights, just why I don't personally care for the things.

MonoChango: Zombalupagus: Note to females: The time you need to pull a handgun on someone is probably not the same time you need to look cute.

Sure sure, no one thinks about cute, when "you need to pull" it. It's about the other 99.99% of the time. Woman tend to think of anything they carry as an accessory. If they are going to carry something, it simply HAS to match the handbag and shoes. Which is odd that they don't make them in a color other than black, or silver and now pink. My wife would like something that matches what she is wearing not just be functional. As for the pink guns, she said, "I'm not a 12 year old girl. If it was a nice navy blue or a light green, then maybe."

Pink? Bugger that. Black is elegant, goes with everything, and is a DAMN sight easier to clean. FFS, I spent an hour and a half cleaning an M16 today, and I've no idea when it was last cleaned. Goddamn, that was a lot of carbon caked in there. Nearly punctured my left thumb and scraped the skin off of my right knuckles every time I tried to lock the bolt to the rear. But when I was done? Ohhh, did it work like a beauty. I can't imagine keeping something pink, glittery, and festooned with rhinestones clean, especially once the glue begins to wear out and they start falling off.

Pink firearms. Farking toys and fashion accessories. Should I purchase a sidearm of my own, I'm either going for Walther PPK or a nice .45. (Says the person who can't get a shot grouping on an M9 to save her life.) And I'll make DAMN sure that I train with it to proficiency, not just treat it as "a deterrent."
