I agree when my wife decides on a gun I'm sure I'll contact him.

I'm not partial to pink for carry purposes-I prefer something that isn't going to attract a lot of attention.
If she wants a pink carry gun- yay wifey.


That being said- if I were to get anything pink, it'd have to be a Bond Arms Mini they're just too cute not to want.

Cool, a German!

I saw a pink AR, probably not much for a carry piece though.

Next big gunshow is the State Fair Education bldg, April 21-22. Lots of guns there to look over and hold. Bill's shooter show makes it easy to shoot a lot of guns, sometimes crowded with long wait times, though.
For a big selection with good prices, check out 'Gunstop' in Glen Lake. (Minnetonka area)
For the record, I'm female, but don't own any pink pistols. ;)
Remember, gun control is not about guns, it's about control.

I agree on the "no pink" for carry - I just think it would be too hard to conceal well (unless she wears a lot of pink, which she very well may!). That Black Rose is awful pretty, though - I might have to put that on my list of purchases for the future!

I just bought a Springfield EMP from Thunderjohn at the last gun show at the Fair Grounds. What a great guy to deal with - I highly recommend him. Wrench - I used to live in the Minnetonka area before moving back up to Duluth but I can't picture where Gunstop is located. Where exactly in Glen Lake is it? I get down to Minnetonka on a regular basis, as my son and daughter-in-law still live there - I'd like to stop in there my next trip down.

Gun Stop is on Excelsior Blvd, just west of the intersection with Eden Prairie Rd.

Mrs. C. has a pink camo pistol case for her CW9. It is the perfect compromise for her. Pink when she wants it to be seen, concealed when she doesn't. She also takes perverse pleasure in having me carry her cased pistol for her.
