Pink Guns - A Hot Topic

Field & Stream occasionally launches discussions about pink guns on their website. I've linked to some of them below:

Sep. 25, 2007 Field & Stream "Field Notes" blog had a post titled Manufacturers Roll Out Pink Guns For Women

Nov. 27, 2007 The "Field Notes" blog had a post titled Pink Guns Flying Off The Shelves

April 7, 2008 The "Field Notes" blog had a discussion topic titled Do Pink Guns Look Like Toys?

I was reminded of these discussions when I flipped through the latest Gander Mountain flyer and went " cute!" over two pink guns that were on sale. My personal take on pink guns is that they are kinda cute - but not realistic for actual hunting.

(At the time of this post)...I (could) only find two manufacturers who make pink guns: Remington (two) - Model 870 Junior 20-Ga. (Gander Mountain exclusive) & Model 597 .22LR Rimfire Rifle; Keystone Sporting Arms has a LOT of pink .22 rifles including - Model 226 Stainless Steel, Model 225 Blued, & Model 221 Stainless Steel (Clearly since this post, there are MANY more manufacturers of pink guns!)

Other than that, you'd have to get a custom gun. Jim's Gun Supply was mentioned in the orignal article discussed at Field & Stream. Here's a link to his website for custom work - he customized the pink Glock in the photo.

Interesting article here and here and here.
