It is a good thing I wasn't drinking anything when I read that, I laughed so hard it would have come out my nose! I'm double glad it wasn't soda, don't ask me how I know carbonated beverages feel especially weird making a nasal egress. :rofl:

So... These "sitting around Glocks"... Any 26's? 29's or 20's? LOL

I still enjoy a 1911, but I prefer my NiB-X Glocks! My 29 is my EDC and I carry a few more with me just in case.

I'm a yoga pants and tank top girl. I wear a belt around pants with no loops just so I can tuck my IWB. LOL

As the the purple, more power to her, but I need a gun to be a gun. I have a friend who got a LC9 in "muddy girl pink". She's a total chick. I'm more the chick you chug beer with. My names not Deb... LOL but I prefer to avoid anything pink or purple when it comes to guns. My AR15 is as fancy as I got an that's simple Black and FDE.

It isn't just women to like to have unusual colors, etc. on firearms.  Some men like it, too - although probably not pink in most cases (unless maybe the guy is a member of 'pink pistols' and, hey, more power to 'em.)  Except for the fact that I would kinda like to have a so-called barbecue gun (one of those Ruger SP101 special editions that were 'factory' engraved would fit the bill nicely) for occasional carry or maybe going so far as to put some nice grips on something I have never been one for 'pimping' a carry firearm with a wide pallet of colors.  Maybe for a 'range only' gun although my 'range only' guns generally aren't high end enough to warrant the treatment.  For a carry gun, a brushed satin finish, stainless, black, blued, nickel, maybe a kinda 'chrome' look on the right gun - those sorts of things - but I don't want a snake-skin pattern or skulls or anything flashy on a gun that I am going to carry.  Still, I have to agree with something the owner of my favorite LGS said one day when I kind of chuckled about him having a pink pistol of one kind or another on his shelf.  He said, with a big smile, "Hey, nobody wants to be shot with a pink gun."

We were at a private range recently and there is a gentleman there who is a Korean war vet, some of you might know him from Bend of the River in Putnam County. I broke out my 1911 for the first time in a long time during the handgun practice and he gave me a quick lesson over in a corner. I came in 2nd out of 6 shooters for the competition, all the rest were men. He was first. He laughed and said see? That's why I teach women, they listen unlike you guys.

Later on, he got out his competition guns, I have never seen anything like them in my life. The grips were apparently made in Europe but they were carved out of blocks of wood to fit his hand. Simply amazing. That kind of color, style and grip I can respect. It was amazing to see.
