Last week we ran a review of a TriStar Raptor–a Youth Model in Muddygirl Pink. Several of you had some strong opinions about the color choice. And more than one of you took us to task for having Sam Trisler, a burly dude who clashes with almost everything pink, reviewing a shotgun that is clearly market to young shooters who like woodsy pink things.
I believe his exact opinion of the camo pattern was it looked “like something a Disney Princess threw up on.” That got some of you riled up, as the screen-cap below illustrates.
So Here’s the Question:
These gun companies value users’ opinions. They value our opinions. Many of them are actually pretty responsive to the views expressed by our reviews, and the comments you make in response to our comments. So let’s give them a better sample to work with.
If you have a young shooter in your life, girl or boy, teenager or younger, ask them how they feel about pink guns. Get a quote. Paste it into the comments below.
And while we’re at it, ask the women in your life. Grown daughters, mothers, wives (if you have more than one), friends, etc. Anyone you know who has a considered opinion. If you happen to fall into this category–we do have a growing female readership–weigh in yourself.
Here’s a review that I did at the end of the summer. The video is below. The 11 year old girl own this .308 Savage–but she doesn’t much care for the pink, as she herself reluctantly admits.
