A recent trend in gun manufacturing have many (be)dazzled–literally–with “female-friendly” pistols. This means smaller, slicker, and more colorful design with a bling factor. The New York Times highlighted some new models of what are called “purse pistols.” Really makes one wonder what is next? Barbie® pocket grenades?
Check out the shiny rocks on the Hello Kitty 9mm Sig Sauer. (Apparently Sanrio® complained, so only one model is in existence.) The pistol, with its jarring Lisa Frank sticker color palette, looks like the final project of an arts-and-crafts class at the local community center. Clearly, very classy.
Maybe that will be the next workshop: Pimpin’ Your Pistol 101. Glue-gun on real-gun. Oh boy, hope everyone has medical insurance. . .
