    I was under the impression blue was what was used for dummy guns and or training aids. Orange for children toys had orange tips.

    I don't know why but I really like that orange one, too bad they only have 3" barrels. there made by diamondback firearms by the way in case anyone was curious

    Some Canadian legal barrels on the pink would help keep me out of the doghouse with the miss'.

    I see a big problem with making a gun look like a toy.
    Make all the pro-arguments you want - it's a safety concern and is negligent on the makers behalf.

    That say effect could be achieved with any bright colour though. I agree that Oranage should be left for visibility hunting. At least if it was lime green or basically any other colour besides orange. Kids especially in the states don't learn firearms training from a course but from a family member they might go snooping in the parents room, leave alone the guns that actually look like ones and take that and play with it as it looks like the one in his room.

    To each his own, just my opinion.
    At least I am considerate if a bit gun illiterate-BGM

    Agree. Maybe this approach is an effort to take on the antis? Black Rifles, yeah well all know they think they're scary, but a pink AR15? Come on, add a couple pink pom-poms. Game over. Antis lose.

    I really don't like the orange, I would absolutely mistake it for a dummy gun at a glance
    The want list:
    Savage Mk2 BTVS
    Colt Match Target 22 / Beretta 87T
    Savage 12 BTCSS .223
    M305/M14 Norc
    DCRA LE No4

    Personally, I would not keep a gun in my home that looks (and probably feels) like a child's water pistol or cap gun. As another poster said, it just seems like a safety concern.

    The other ones look cool, just not something that small, brightly colored and plastic.
