Back in Pink

Regardless of where you stand on the subject of pink guns, Oleg’s post this morning reminds us that pink is indeed selling. Why wouldn’t gun manufactures make pink guns and accessories? “If you build it, they will come.” (GO RANGERS!) Though I would not purchase a pink gun just because it is pink, having a pink option on a gun that I do like is a strong selling point for me. After all, you dudes outfit your guns in OD, FDE, and camo, what’s the difference in outfitting mine in pink?

Charter Arms Chic Lady Revolver

I know that a lot of people are going to disregard Charter Arms as a “quality” firearm, but reviews have shown that it is reliable and performs well. As far as snub-nosed revolvers go, don’t tell me “just get an S&W.” Some people can’t afford the cost of one of those. The Charter Arms Chic Lady revolver is an affordable alternative. Revolvers are reliable and though you aren’t going to take this baby out to the range all the time (my Bodyguard, at a higher cost- isn’t going to the range all the time, either), you could do worse than the Charter Arms Chic Lady revolver. If you want a pink, self-defense gun, don’t count out the Charter Arms line. Oh! And just check out that case it comes with- tre’ chic’!

Hogue Pink Pearlized Polymer Grip Panels

Oh, how I love the 1911. So far, Kimber is my favorite. I really like how 1911s come from the factory, or from the custom-shop, and I probably wouldn’t want any type of permanently pink one, that’s why these pink pearlized grips from Hogue are so cool. You don’t mess up your original finish and on the days you get finicky, you can switch back to wood, or rubber, or whatever else grips your little heart desires. These Hogue grips with an ambidextrous safety cut fit full-sized Government or Commander .45 ACP 1911s.

Ruger 10/22 Stock in Pink

Oleg mentions the Crickett single-shot .22 LR in his post, but I would suggest a Ruger 10/22 instead. No, the Ruger isn’t a single-shot, but more rounds equals more fun, doesn’t it? The Ruger 10/22 is by far one of the most popular guns of all time. It is so customizable, reliable, easy to shoot, and so super cheap! Adults and kids will get a kick (not literally, cause the 10/22 doesn’t…) out of shooting the Ruger 10/22. The pink stock might encourage your baby girl to get into shooting, or maybe your wife, girlfriend, sister, or yourself! What’s better is when you or whoever gets sick of pink, you can change out the stock to something more tactical, or traditional.

The Judge. In Pink.

The Judge is an extremely sought-after and asked-about gun. The Taurus Judge revolver shoots .45 Long Colt and .410 Bore shotshells interchangeably. It is an excellent snake gun. Taurus markets this revolver as a close-range self-defense weapon. Taurus designed the Judge specifically for self-defense in the car. That’s a good deal—especially here in Texas where we can carry our guns in the car without a permit. The Ribber grip helps with recoil and provides a sure grip. This model includes both pink and black grips for his or her carry; or hers and hers, or his and his… you know, whatever floats your boat.

So, what do you think? Pink or not? What side of the fence are you on?

  1. As a girl whose favorite color is pink, and favorite pastime is shooting, I totally love this. Hopefully my husband gets the hint, and goes pink with the next gun! And I know plenty of other female shooters who love to add a little personalization and pink whenever possible.
