Colorful Guns At SHOT Show


The days of guns being manufactured with only black or stainless steel finishes are long over. Taurus now offers their Taurus 738 TCP .380 ACP pistol with frames in a variety of colors, including fluorescent  safety yellow, pink, purple and lilac.





Dimondback now offer the Diamond DB9 in pink and fluorescent orange.



Coonan Inc. 1911 pistols are available in a number of finishes.

I really liked the look of the Beretta Nano in the white frame.

Christensen Arm’s CA-15 is available in a funky green/black skull motif.

    I love the digi camo on that rifle. The rest, not so much.

  • Jim Chambers

    Makes them look kinda like toys, which isn’t too great an idea. Though the functional camouflage is pretty cool. Just waiting for the gay pride color scheme…

    • Ian Garris

      Try looking at a Sig titanium-oxide limited edition sometime. 😉

      • Jim Chambers

        That’s funny! Adding a picture for the rest of the class. :)

  • Stupid idea

    Is dangerous and stupid paint a firearm like a toy. OK for camo, but a big no for toy’s color.

    • Alex Roberts

      Your car isn’t a toy and can kill people, better keep it functional black ONLY.

      it not stupid to paint firearm, All 5 of my guns are all pink I do not see them as a toy ok……I love how guns comes it all this cute color, it perfect for a female or a youth shooter, it look less scary, I was never into gun until I found out that they made them in pink :) so that’s what get me into the sport, I am a pro shooting, I shoot at least once a week now, I will never own a gun if it not pink, I LOVE PINK!!!!!!

    i like that green/black “splash” paint on the CA-15. well except it’s “skull” if it was just a splash that would do it for me.

    I’m a grown-ass ex-infantryman with a beard. My hobbies include brewing and drinking beer. I strongly support this notion of frames in colours other than black and pink (seriously? pink?). That yellow was quite attractive, the white was straight ballin’ and I would love some royal blue.

    Makes them look like toys? Most toys today look more “gun-like” than some subcompacts…

      one day I want to be as manly as you sir

    • falnfenix

      i’m definitely digging the idea of a white frame. i’m pretty sick of baby pink on everything.

  • Alex Roberts

    Call me old fashioned, but I’ll take straight blued over that disgusting camo crap any day. Actually I would even take the solid white or lime green over camoflauge. Plus, what happens when you drop your gun in the forest?
    OH wait it will still stick out like a sore thumb because there is no actual terrain that acu camo blends in to….

  • Alex Roberts

    And that one with the skulls looks like it was fostered from some calladooty fanboy’s wet dream.

  • Graham

    I see you offer the skull coat… but do you have any Ed Hardy coatings?

  • Leigh Rich

    i got all the color guns out there. Not all are painted. T not accept guns of color is racist!!
