Which guns can lead to your "Man Card" getting pulled?

    Shooting is often depicted as a macho sport (of course some people will argue this but that doesn't make it any less true). But, hey, let's face it, not ALL guns are cool. In fact, I'd wager there are some guns you would NEVER let your friends see you shoot.

    I'll start off with these:

    -ANY pistol or revolver which says "Ladysmith" in cute little cursive writing is definitely good for at least a Man Card suspension.

    -If you get caught shooting one of those hot pink Crickett .22s, you can expect a full revocation of your Man Card, at least until you do something seriously macho (like build a 50 foot bonfire, or kill an insurgent.....with a garrote....in front of all his little insurgent friends..........then when he dies and gets to his 72 virgins he finds out you got all their numbers already)

    This is the man thread. No whining about guns that are ugly or unreliable. Only cold hard statements. Which guns would you never be caught dead shooting in front of your friends.

    I'm not sure the point of this thread.

    I buy the guns I like and shoot them.

    It doesn't matter if they're hot pink or marked "LadySmith".

    (pssst, in fact, some of those "LadySmith" marked guns make great CCW pieces).

    Is there some reason you bring up "man card revocation" ?

    I expect a lock in 1,2,3...

    But I will say that I have a few small guns that might be considered girly (NAA mini revolver, .22 beretta model 21, an American Derringer Corp gun that the "Lady Derringer" used to advertise in gun mags), but I won't do anything with hot colors or the words "lady" on it.

    Of course, I have a S&W Performance Center .500 also, so hopefully that is offsetting.

    Manhood must be rather tenuous if it's at risk because you're shooting the "wrong gun." Personally, I prefer men who don't care what other people think. I don't know if that's exactly a masculine trait, but it is an attractive one.

    There are certain things that you never do in front of your friends, like cry or ride a moped for example. You'll never live it down. I'm looking for the firearm equivalent.

    I make a motion that we remove the man card of any person who refuses to relax while inside the man cave.

    I also make a motion that we remove the man card of a person whose reason for carrying only a .22 derringer is because "the light recoil allows for better shot placement."

    Incidentally, the thread is supposed to be humorous, but some of you seem to really be struggling with it. If our lives are so bereft of humor that we can't see it slapping us in the face then perhaps I should shut this thread down myself.

    According to El Guapo's men, the Three Amigos carried sissy guns.

    Starting a thread like this should get your "man card" revoked and thrown out of the "man cave"!

    Just be glad yer "man sac" ain't being recalled!!! :)

    There are different types of humor and usually, sexist sort of stuff doesn't cut it here on THR.

    I would have to qualify any Man Card suspensions according to the reason you're shooting said "girly gun." If a manly man is shooting a pink cricket while instructing his daughter, whom he bought the rifle for, I consider that plenty manly. However, if a single guy is sporting an AR setup with all pink furniture, that might qualify. For the most part, though, I consider guns to be pretty gender neutral.

    Would not, myself, mind having a Ladysmith wheelgun.

    Now a pink Taurus, that will get you're gender marked as "ambiguous" (and we don't want that, do we).

    Humor is good-- this in my opinion is girly. C'mon show some guns!

    Not sure where you're going with this; as for myself and my friends, we'll shoot pretty much anything that we can afford and can find ammunition for. Size, caliber, or nameplate really don't matter. I mean as long as it goes bang, and has a fair amount of intrinsic accuracy (extreme reliabilty and durability are absolute necessities); who cares what it's "manhood factor" is. On a more personal note, I simply find most of these pink colored guns to be some of the most horrible shades of pink I've ever seen on a commercial product. And that includes those Mary Kay Cosmetics Cadillacs as well.

    Any glock or other poly gun, if you can't carry steel your man card needs to be reevaluated.:neener:

    If you're a man and you're shooting a:

    1. Pink AR
    2. AK with Kalishnakitty stickers on it

    And your daughter or niece isn't around, that's a man card revocation.:p

    If you're a man and your wife/girlfriend is shooting a bigger caliber than you... more accurately... that's a man card revocation.:neener:

    If you're a man and your wife/girlfriend carries her CCW to protect YOU and you don't carry at all, that's a man card revocation.:eek:
