I agree - for other people if that is what they want.If anything I think the colors increase sales, and personally don't care what color(s) they sell them in, as long as they are putting firearms into the hands of law abiding citizens. If it takes a baby blue or pink gun to get someone interested in the shooting sports and/or self-defense, so be it.
I could make an exception with that one! I've not cared much for case hardening either, but the examples above are beautiful.I think they're mostly for show. There are a lot of Smith and Wesson "Pintos" out there. Usually blued frame with nickel cylinders and barrels. Many are engraved like this one (not mine).
I gotta admit - that looks pretty sharp.
