    Good post!

  • jaekelopterus

    I am not a fan of dressing up firearms to look like toys. It’s actually irresponsible.

  • Hobbnob

    Surely it’s a bit off that they’re selling pistols with ‘unrealistic’ colouring when airsoft manufacturers have to paint 50% of the weapon in such a colour? just seems a bit strange that a firearm manufacturer is allowed to colour a weapon a similar colour to a BB gun

    Old news! I blogged that a long time ago. :D

    Gunmart, is it a contest???

    My wife liked it when I showed her the picture.

  • Erskine Harris

    The women that I know love pistols in pink and if that makes them want to shoot it more and thereby becoming better shooters then I am all for it.

    I do not agree with having a pink gun, but I am looking at it from the point of view of man and not a woman. They see things differently.

    @jaekelopterus

    I concur… a lot of mfrs. are doing it, and it’s just STUPID.

  • Marsh

    Pink is actually a pretty decent desert camo believe it or not.

    • David/Sharpie

      Oh I believe it, hence the SAS “pinkie” land rover of Desert Storm.

  • Marsh

    The only thing I don’t like about these guns is the people who make them. Strange Korean cultists.

  • AznMike

    If I remember correctly, this was a fund raiser for Breast Cancer and it was up during for an auction and a portion of the final amount was donated to fighting Breast Cancer unless they changed to selling it along with their normal production line.

  • wtf

    @marsh : yea I know , SAS used to have Pink Camo on their Jeep’s and 6×6 truck

  • Burst

    I’m no woman, but I’d take a pink Ruger over a black Kahr anyday.

  • M.Werner

    As one notes above, there’s quite a lot of these candy-colored firearms available now, and we police are wary that they might be taken for toys…

    • David/Sharpie

      Rookie mistake believing any gun could be a toy, because what you may think is a toy, could be a real gun. Take anything seriously, or you will be killed in the line of duty.

      In Canmore Alberta an RCMP officer shot a man dead for pointing an umbrella at them (At night, someone doing that looks like they’re pointing a rifle at officers.

  • Angela

    I like Burst, Marsh, and Erskine Harris. I hope you take this the way it’s intended: You have just enough “feminine side” in you. I’m pretty sure many other women would agree with me.

  • Spook

    I’m a woman and I shoot. I’m sorry, I can NOT see carrying a pink gun.

    I carry for self defense and I’d be concerned that if (God forbid) I had to draw that weapon that the perp would just laugh at it and attack me anyway.

    Include the fact that I would feel exceedingly silly brandishing the thing. I’ll stick to my all black Glock or my silver Sigarms. Come on, these aren’t toys, they’re serious tools and I hate to see them trivialized like this.

    All IMHO, of course.

    • David/Sharpie

      The point of carrying is to protect yourself from attack, it doesn’t matter if they’re yelling or laughing, if they are attacking you, blow their brains out.

  • austingirl

    I bought a pink one. I was hesitant, but the pink one was over $200 cheaper than the black/silver one. So… I caved. Unfortunately, it isn’t shooting correctly/reliably with several FTFs. Almost through the break in period, then it’s going back to Kahr. :-\

  • Jake

    The guy who makes these (aptly named Kook … that’s his real name!) is a nut. I don’t think most firearms mfgrs are nuts are they?

    A couple of points.

    MSRP = Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price.
    Which, concerning many cars and gadgets, nobody believes.

    The Kahr Arms plant is in Massachusetts. You can find some long-time local residents working there, however not many Koreans, strange or otherwise.
