SIG Sauer’s SIGM400 “Muddy Girl”

SIG has a new AR-15 featuring Magpul furniture and “Muddy Girl”, a camo scheme which sort of cuts the difference between the traditional-black black rifle finish and the in-your-face-bright-neon-pink finish. Forbes’ Vice blogger Susannah Breslin spoke to the Moon Shine, who developed the camo

“We wanted to do something that didn’t have to be restricted to mimicking nature,” explains Mattern, 42, a hunting and motorsports enthusiast. Armed with his past experience as a designer and an architecture degree from Pennsylvania State University, he set out to design an eye-popping “lifestyle camo” for outdoorsy women. Previously, other brands had simply slapped a pink background behind their camouflage for men. Muddy Girl, one of four Moon Shine camos, combines hot pink and purple, the neon trend, and a thicket of bramble to alarming affect.

On an unrelated note. I have trouble understanding why guns are considered vice by the mainstream media. Can an activity that millions of young children and their parents do in public each weekend be considered in the same category as illegal drugs, illicit sexual activity, pornography and other criminal activities? Sigh….

    “Steve C.”‘s comments on that article are about to give me a brain aneurysm.

    “I have trouble understanding why guns are considered vice by the mainstream media.”

    You really don’t understand why the mainstream media considers guns vice? Have you not been paying attention to how they’ve treated firearms for the last few decades? Guns are bad, evil scary things that “reasonable” people have no use for, and are therefore taboo. Nevermind that 40% of the country owns them and overwhelmingly uses them for good.

      just because this song is both related and informative.

      also i’m sure steve understands, after all he is a gun writer. i believe he meant it as a statement like “i dont understand girls” when the person understands behavioral psychology. it just is a statement.

    I wonder if the gentlemen they arrested here in Texas just walking the outback with his AR strapped to his back pack would have gotten arrested if his AR was pink? Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham might have gotten off had his AR been pink.

      Open carry is not legal here in TX though, regardless of the guns color…

        Of longarms it is.

    “I have trouble understanding why guns are considered vice by the mainstream media.”

    because assault rifles were designed to kill people, just because some feel that they have the right to own them, that does not mean that their purpose changed, I would not feel safe having a heated discussion with someone armed with an Ak-47.

      “…some feel that they have the right to own them…”

      It isn’t a feeling, it’s the law of the land.

      By that logic would not the military would be considered a vice ….. ?

    • bob

      “assault rifles” hahahahaha

    • Risky

      So, you get a warm and toasty feeling when having heated discussions with people armed with pump shotguns or fire axes? Man, ignorance knows no bounds…

      Humans are resourceful animals, if there is the intent to cause harm a basic fist is enough to kill. Singling out “assault rifles” as some kind of significant danger is emotional claptrap.

      Have a look at mortality statistics in the US. These are the numbers for 2010:

      Now look at the breakdown of murders in the same year, according to the FBI – broken down by state and type of weapon:

      Still think “assault rifles” are a major problem?

      The numbers don’t lie, you are 4 times more likely to commit suicide than to be murdered. There is no reasonable argument against the private ownership of “assault rifles”.

    Whoa now! Don’t throw illegal drugs, illicit sexual activity, pornography and other criminal activities under the bus just to save firearms.

  • alex

    what’s a woman doing designing camos when the only thing a woman should be allowed to design is sandwiches and babies. the pink guns were cute little gimmicks to give your wife when she was in the kitchen and that was fine but now that they’re serious about this it’s a bad sign about the feminization of america. gun companies have to uphold patriotic values, if they side with the feminazis then all hope is lost. everything is going to hell. courtesy obama, the end of liberty…

    • michelle

      Hey alex. It doesn’t matter the color of the gun it’s if you can handle it… and by the sound of your feminist comment I bet you were out shot by a women. In my house my husband and I settle arguments with our bows or head to the range. And nine times out of ten I win. So I think you ought to keep your kitchen comments to your self
