Nikki reads my blog, she knows how much I am amused and delighted by pink "girlie" guns. She also knows me well enough to know that I wouldn't like a gun that was too shiny, too blingy, or too precious. So for my birthday this year she ordered me new custom-made grips for my Bersa Thunder .380, made out of purpleheart - naturally a dark purplish-pink wood. The grips fit perfectly, feel nice in my hand and are so beautiful in the sunlight, honestly - the wood almost glows.
When it comes to prettying up your pistol, sometimes less is more...like applying lipstick, a sheer wash of rose is much classier than a sticky bubblegum pink.
