HELLO KITTY! DIE! DIE!
But, back in the USA, we used to joke about a Hello Kitty handgun, but it seems like we joked too soon.
“Manufacturer Taurus has a range of pistols with pink mother of pearl hand grips, while TJ’s Custom Gunworks will embellish weapons with the Hello Kitty logo. Sig Sauer, which supplies the US military, also offers several designs, including the P238 Lady, which boasts scroll engraving, gold flower inlay, and a rosewood grip. Peggy Tarturo, executive editor of Women and Guns magazine, explained why the female-friendly firearms were proving to be such a commercial success. She said: 'You’ll see guns scaled down in terms of grips more attractive for women. 'Average women tend to be smaller, and so especially with a long gun, you’ll notice between a gun that didn’t fit you and a gun that did.' Pink shooting accessories are also becoming increasingly popular with Ontario-based Packing in Pink selling earmuffs, range glasses, apparel and target sheets in the saccharine hue.”
