By the time my daughter was about four and a half she had been allowed, under close supervision, to touch some of my guns (I wanted no mystery there.), she had toy guns, and she was already learning the four safety rules. One day my family was sitting at the dinner table talking about guns. My little daughter asked, “Daddy, when I get my first gun, can it be pink?” I responded that I wasn’t sure if I could get her a pink gun, but I began to look. About a year later, I found the pink Crickets and bought her one. Below is a picture of her on her first shooting trip. Notice the big smile and that her attire matches the rifle. Fast forward eight years, and she is now thirteen and an avid shooter. She has been asking me for a pink AR for about three years now, so for Christmas my wife and I got her all the parts needed to build an AR including pink Magpul furniture. My daughter and I then built her first AR. We had so much fun. Last weekend she got to shoot it for the first time. The smiles were huge. Below you will also see a picture from last weekend. Notice the matching gloves and muffs. Had it not been cold you would also have seen matching shooting glasses, a matching pink t-shirt, and a matching S&W hat. The cold threw off her fashion coordination plans, but as much as she has grown and matured, I am delighted to see the same little girl in pink is still there. I am proud of this kid!
