it was brought up by a non-shooting female to me as to why there wasnt things like tatical vests and such in colors like red, blue, green, pink etc.. i know most men wouldent be intrested in such things but i was wondering if the Female population of ARFCOM would like this type of thing..

i have seen bARbie-15's and Silver/pink AKs on this board so it was just a thought.

Not me. Being uncle trained me I prefer the conventional gear.

I wouldn't like it and I wasn't trained by Uncle Sam.

I think it is more attractive when I get myself all girlie and then put on some traditional camo. I once bought army green silk ribbon to wear in my pig tails and it matched my camo...
my guy, phil_in_seattle, liked it quite a bit.

I am already a girl with a gun. I don't need any cutsie gear to go with it.

But I DO like those baby blue CCW purses... But that is for public.

Hmmmm I dunno, I believe that could be pimped.

+1

if I'm gonna go hunting (or God forbid, need to be tactical in a SHTF situation), I really don't think a blue or red accessory will help... camo or black for me, thanks.

Ick, no cutsie stuff for me. All about function over fashion. To each their own though, I suppose.

I love Halloween, they could be used for a Halloween-themed shoot.

I could see all the guys dressed as the gangsta boys, mafia boys, pimps, bloods, crips...

Jeez, I'm picturing some of the guys I know, wearing their pants below their tooshies.... it's a great visual!

Anyway, girls could wear the pink stuff, add a feather boa and such.... It would be the funniest shoot ever.

You've put too much thought into that

would be kinda funny, depending on the age group of the guys, i'd be able to see what some of my friends will look like then

Yikes. No colors please. The whole point is functionality - not color coordination.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 5:30:25 PM EDT

As far as tactical gear?

How about a truly comfortable thigh holster. Something in lace perhaps, but can still hold the weapon in place with no worries...

Holy crap! I could hear all the faint "thwap, thwap, thwap..." noises in the distance as 1 by 1 each male member of ARFCOM just fell out of their chairs all over the country after reading that.

+1 on the lace... could be fun.

Take this:

and add some lace and ribbon. Compliment it with a satin waist strap, belt hook, or vertical suspender strap

ETA: Sig, it's not a thigh holster, but someone posted this pic awhile back. Actually, I think it might have been you.

The boyfriend keeps teasing me about putting pink furniture on my AR. I keep trying to tell him I prefer basic black.
Link Posted: 1/9/2006 12:37:35 PM EDT
Yep. I love basic black as well!
