Seems some Milwaukee firearms dealers are starting to coat their rifles and shotguns in pink paint to appeal to the girl market. Our favorite youth culture expert, Anastasia Goodstein, spotted the news squib online — and our eyebrows shot up so high, we’re having serious trouble getting them back down. Among the gun shop offerings: pink Remington 20-gauge shotguns bearing the motto “Shoot like a girl if you can!” They’re available in pink camo too, although we’re not sure that’s going to fool any self-respecting mallard. No word on whether the guns come in Hello Kitty prints too.
