Ugly Gun Sunday

What is it with zebra striping AR's? The zebra's stripes are not camouflage. A zebra's stripes work by causing the zebra to blend into the herd, and making it difficult for a lion to hone in on any one zebra.

When a zebra stripe pattern is changed from black and white to pink and white, it becomes, well, bizarre. The result is a weapon that resembles a sickly sweet confection.

I think it's called "tiger stripes" for military-ish applications, altho bright pink and white matches no background that needs camouflaging against that I know of. Maybe they're doing that "go pink to save the boobies" thing.

That pattern will be useful in a gunfight in a boutique, or Frederick's of Hollywood.

Pink & white zebra stripes kind of look like bacon.

Mmmm, bacon.

Ugly to us, yes. But it accomplishes a worthwhile goal. It makes the Evil Black Child Slayer Assault Rifle Of Doom less frightening to Joe and Jane Sheep. It removes the intimidation factor that guides the emotional, knee-jerk response of the gun grabbers to firearms in general.

Look at that thing. Hello Kitty wouldn't be scared of it. And, just maybe, it'll be a factor in making a few people realize how silly hoplophobia is.

Yes, guns are serious business, and should be handled and treated with the utmost respect. But a certain measure of whimsy, and a sense of humor, might be what we need to bridge the gap between opposing sides of the gun issue. All too often, both sides get too serious, tempers flare, and dead horses are pummeled mercilessly. How are you going to have any sort of serious argument when a hot-pink tigerstripe rifle is the subject? ;)

My two cents(two bucks with the way inflation is going).

It's just a matter of consistent style.

What goes with cowboy clothing? A Colt SAA.

What goes with fancy duds at the Governor's BBQ? A BBQ gun.

What goes with a tuxedo? a Colt 1903 or a Walther PPK.

What goes with ninja gear? An H und K.

What goes with scientifically enhanced boobies? A pink and white tiger striped AR.

It's simple, really.

If it got my girl to shoot it, (cuz she won't touch the AR I'm building now) then I'm all for it. Like the Hello Kitty CA legal AR.

Beside, I hear it tastes like cotton candy.

Why is that assault rifle used to slay only Evil Black Children? Is it racist?

If coloring guns pink gets women like that into the range next to me, I'm all for it.

Now they just need to find a mod for the firearms that makes the women shooting them actually think I'm witty and charming.

Hmm, I wonder if my orange and white swirly patterned Cavarms lower is going to make it into a UGS (Ugly Gun Sunday) picture one day. We shall see. =)

What, you've never seen a herd of ARs?

It's actually well suited to the nightmarish combat theater that is the taffy jungles of Candyland where much like the toffee tigers the theme was borrowed from, the rifle blends into the sugarcane breaks and red vine liannas.


Or maybe I just have an overactive imagination.

The girl resembles a sticky sweet confection as well...

Oh, did somebody already say that? Think it?
