I quite concur with that. It is a piece of history and it is a tool, indeed.I've had an interest in guns since childhood. My first was a 410 single shot shotgun and I've collected from there.
Wish I had the time to spare I'd love to get training as a gunsmith. It really is fascinating when you take the time to understand how they work. It's so much more than pull-trigger-go-bang.
A gun is a tool, a work of art, a piece of history, a means of putting food on the table and the great equalizer that prevents you from being a victim. :thumb:
Actually, I'm one of those who would like a pink gun.:upsidedown: Of course, I'm crazy about anything pink and if I could, I'd get a pink car, too!I was at Gander Mountain a few days ago and even though I would have to find a VERY good deal in their used guns to buy there I always go look through their gun section. I almost died laughing when I saw they had a whole section of pink guns. I mean who would buy a pink gun? But I was talking with one of the gunsmiths and it made sense. Some women feel that they don't know enough about firearms and feel stupid to ask about them. This is one way to make them feel more at ease and give the gift of self reliance to a woman who may be a bit timid. I like it. I doubt if I'm ever going to buy a pink gun, mainly because I have never bought from a dealer but only from private collections, but it's a good idea.
