Pink Pixeled Glock Shoots Real Bullets, Not Pixels

Duracoat_glock_ladyswatdigital_100309This DuraCoat Glock Gun Lady Swat Digital is a dangerous example of products that should remain in its natural state and don’t necessarily need a new paint job like those gadgets that get the Colorware treatment do. Jim’s Gun Supply is no stranger to controversy, and yet they still continue to pump out designs on guns that in the end, make them look like toys instead of dangerous weapons. Obviously with this design they are reaching out to not only women but geeks as well. Of course no one is forcing anyone to send in their guns to them to get a face-lift, but just the fact that it’s an option seems wrong; especially since it has the potential to get into the wrong hands, and by the wrong hands, we mean kids might accidentally think this is a toy. This is one item pixels don’t belong on… and don’t you love the Breast Cancer ribbon on it  too??

    That’s not a breast cancer ribbon idiot, it’s a symbol of Christianity. You should recognize it. Notice how it resembles the Darwin fish you probably have on your car? Go hug a tree and leave the guns alone! The design looks great.

    Way to make a point there Mr. Doe.

    A gun in the hands of a child is dangerous whether it’s pixelated pink or gunmetal blue. That’s why responsible gun owners keep their guns out of children’s hands and teach their kids gun safety. The most dangerous thing you can do is try to keep your kids from knowing about guns. Those are the kids that are going to find a gun and accidentally shoot themselves or somebody else. Just like any other topic, knowledge is power.

    Thanks for the link to Jim’s Gun Supply. His work is beautiful. I might have to have him paint a gun for me someday! I might even have him put a pink Jesus fish on it. 😉

    I am disappointed to see you use Chipchick to promote a political stance. I thought this blog was about girl geek stuff, not your political opinions.

    A Christian with a handgun? Hunting Muslims, perhaps?
    That’s a fine looking weapon minus the fish. And the pink.
    Now let’s all go hunt some al Qaida!!
    A Glock in .40 Smith thank you.

    I think the gun looks ugly and also like a toy..i would spend more money on firing it and accessories that are made for the gun …i would be embarrassed to carry that..i want my gun to say ” dont even think about it” if im in a situation. And ive spent many hours becoming a great shot..and saftey is a must around my kids..my kids know that guns are serious and kill people.

    Love it!  If I need to actually fire in order to protect myself, I would love for the last thing that a–hole ever sees, to be my custom pink glock pointed at his head or chest.

    Why is it any of your business what color these people paint their guns? It looks like a digital camo patten to me, perfectly acceptable as military patterns go. Besides that, how do you know the people who own these guns are taking them home and locking them down with trigger locks and chamber blocks? You don’t. I can paint my car in an color, design, or shapes that I want but it doesn’t mean I’m going to leave the keys in the switch while my kids are inside of it unattended. You anti-gun people always give me a laugh with how blatantly prejudiced you are when you make posts like this and try to seem subtle so as not to come right out and say that all gun owners are irresponsible maniacs and that guns should just be banned because THINK OF THE CHILDREN! Just go ahead and say you don’t like guns next time and spare us all the time of reading between the lines.

    Or maybe that woman who owns this gun simply put a symbol on it that she might have in other places as well because she supports breast cancer awareness and wants other people to see it. She probably has similar on her vehicle, gym bag, etc. The female gun owner (or whoever commissioned the design) just happens to be a shooter as well. I doubt you’d be complaining about how tasteless this was if it were on a tennis racquet or a golf bag. Yes, I fully understand that a tennis racquet isn’t a weapon but most active gun owners also view their guns as both a piece of sports equipment and self defense item, and in many cases it carries the same sort of sentimental attachment that a favorite set of gold clubs or a baseball bat or bowling ball might carry. Don’t forget that shooting is still a sport and a lot of gun enthusiasts still view it that way. The only thing pathetic and tasteless here is your blatant disdain for anyone owning firearms and your judgement over a subject you seem to be woefully ignorant about concerning a person who likely requested this pattern that you don’t even know.
