That is scary.
Blue (although a darker royal blue shade) is a common marker for training guns, inert, blank, and sims.

Yeah, it may look cute, but it's still an eeeeeeevil assault weapon. Just look at that pistol grip, not to mention the highcapacityspraytheshoolyard magazine. Clearly, it's the GUN LOBBY'S (TM) attempt to lure younger and younger children. The equivalent of BIG TOBACCO'S (TM) Joe Camel.

Evil pink rifle, anyone?

(And aren't a few colors - I think red and yellow, but I'm probably mistaken - reserved for toy guns?)

With Cav Arms, Kel-tec and EAA, besides others, making guns in different colors, I don't think that relying on the blue/red coding would be wise.

Ok, it's just a civil fine... (orange and green, by the way)



CA Penal Code

12020.3. Any person who, for commercial purposes, purchases, sells,
manufacturers, ships, transports, distributes, or receives a
firearm, where the coloration of the entire exterior surface of the
firearm is bright orange or bright green, either singly, in
combination, or as the predominant color in combination with other
colors in any pattern, is liable for a civil fine in an action
brought by the city attorney of the city or the district attorney for
the county of not more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

IIRC one or more of the mods over on AR15.com has an AR with furniture like Dewalt/Milwaukee power tools. I can't find the link to the photos at this time, but it exists out there in the Ether somewhere.

It might be fun to have a non-trad color rifle. Maybe on my next one....

Back in ' 09 ...

Couple of brothers I competed against were from OK. Great guys and real evident that had some Native American Indian blood. Thier Competiton guns were painted with thier tribal theme. :D

Kinda funny to see a new shooter's reaction to these two ...especially if they decided to add a bit of face paint....

One of the High power shooters that i spoke with last year when i first got interested in the sport spoke of someone he knew wanting a "service rilfe" legal AR painted up in "Hello Kitty" colors.

and there's a Junior shooter from Arizona who has the sunburst off the state lag on hers.

but i'm sorry other than the above items (iffy on teh hello kitty) and things like the Milwalkee and Dewalt guns, i'm a little :scrutiny: on bright color ARs.

I'm getting into refinishing and can't wait to bastardize my poor FrankenFAL. Purple and green? No, you need complementary or suplimentary colors to get either a good contrast or a nice theme. How about matte silver, gold, black, and purple "ghetto fab" camo :D

I'm so going to do that . . . where's my Brownell's catalog :evil:

I like the different colors. Who cares really?

99% of my gun collection is not going to be used in a tactical SHTF scenario, and usually just goes to the range and makes holes. If I happen to like blue or yellow, all the better.

Detritus, Detritus, Detritus....ahh, what will we do with you? You have to remember that a Highpower shooter's rifle becomes an extension of his hand, and he wants it to be as personal as he can. When you stand on the line at Perry and you see 1300+ shooters there, 1250 of which are shooting the same gun you are, you WANT something different. something that tells you "my rifle is special" and gives you that connection and edge.

Personally, I want to get one rifle done up in a lustrous black cherry metallic with translucent flames, and another with a tie-dye design. I'll probably keep my NTIT gun looking hardcore...flash hider, bayo lung and all.

Steve you DO have to admit that a "Hello Kitty" marked SR gun IS a little on the "interesting idea" side of things. Clint greenwood's(one of the local HP shooters that i spoke at length with last year) Texas flag rifles and the arizona flag rifle, and many of the others are all well and good and cool as all get out. so too would the hello kitty one be, but it would HAVE to bring some weird looks even on a High Power line.

as always to each there own, but personally i'd hope that the lady involved in the above project at least would make the "cat icon" closer to the now nortorious "Kalashnikitty" image than the traditional hello kitty style :D

...this makes sense.

Fight these Raubritters in the Senate. If it doesn't look like an EBR it won't make them scared of our toys.

Though most of the examples I have seen aren't what I would call useful. I see this as nothing more than urban camofluage. Now if they would start designing furniture that make guns look like everyday objects we'd be set.

For instance what if a glock just looked like a cell phone. A whole lot less scary. And 99% of the people wouldn't give you a second look.

Okay, so maybe the cell phone has a handle sticking out of it. If I had to I'd still rather shoot a guy with a cell phone that doesn't draw a lot of attention, than to not carry because I get harassed. Urban Camo for guns. Obviously Fed, State and Local laws apply. What do you think? Maybe I'm all wet.

Well, I have 3 daughters.

My oldest (almost 11) got a regular walnut-stocked chipmunk at age 7, but her passion is her Ruger 77 youth model in brushed stainless and the silver/gray laminate stock in .260 Rem, in part, because it's purty!

My middle daughter turned 7 last year, and damn near did cartwheels when she opened her Barbie/hot-pink chipmunk .22.

My 3 year old just wants her own!

I have an open invitation from my wife (who happens to have pink framed Kel-tec), at every gun show I go to, to purchase any pink gun for the girls.

Since our future is held in our children's hands, I'm kinda puzzled by all of the revulsion over the colors of the guns. Anything that gets my wife & daughters, or anyone's spouse & kids for that matter, fired up to be more interested in shooting/hunting/firearms etc. seems to me to be a pretty good thing.

I can guarantee you that when my family sees those available colors, my oldest will want the blue one, my middle one will want the pink one, my youngest will want the purple one, my wife will probably like the yellow one, and I'll be looking to by an AR or two to dress up. So, these bright colors are wrong because....................well, why are they wrong again?

For my kid's 13th birthday, I plan on sitting down with each of my kids and showing them how to build their very own AR. I will be more than happy to go with any color sceme that makes them happy.

(That said, all my personal AR's will stay black! ;) )

ARs in blue steel and walnut don't exist, unless somebody custom-makes one from scratch (AFAIK). You might as well have them in fun colors. Keep posting pictures if you've got 'em, folks -- these are great.
