Lets consider tonight the first day of Kellann's (my wife) Custom Graphic AR15 Project. Tonight I got out the following parts and took them apart.

Armalite A4 16" (the $359 ones from the holiday sale)
Daniel Defense M4 9.0 FF Rail
CMMG Micro Gas Block
Burris Fairfield 2-7x40 (or 32, I forget) Tactical Scope
Millet X-High AR15 rings
MI Rail Sling Swivel
YHM Railed Bipod Adapter
Shooter's Ridge 9-13" Bipod
Tango Down Verticle Grip
CMMG MOD4SA Lower Receiver
RRA NM LPK
Bullet Button I
Prince Extended Take Down Pin
Tango Down Battle Grip
RRA A2 Buttstock
4 C Products 10/10 Magazines
1 C Products 10/30 Magazine

Next I will package everything up and send it to Drew at Airbrush Armory (http://www.armoryairbrush.com/samples.html).

I will keep you guys updated as this project goes along. My partners will also be painting a gun each. Becky will do a urban pink camo and Dean is going to do something more manly.

Now this is getting out of hand! Police officers throughout the country are in danger from this new threat to public safety!

LOL! That sounds like a nice setup. The Hello Kitty arsenal grows. Here is a clone of my rifle that someone made and sent me a picture of. Not a bad knock-off of the orginial, eh?

Yes. This really is getting out of hand. I hadn't got on here today and seen the hoopla about CNN until after my post. I was amazed what I found this afternoon on a Google search for Hello Kitty AR15. Shark's Wife's AR15 is most certainly famous.

Its going to be sad if it is used to ban pink painted guns. :( However, that can only happen if we allow it.

I say if it gets that that point we make sure they are delcared assault weapons and a 90 day registration window opens.

It is ridiculous. Mayor Bloomberg started this back in 2006 when he proposed and they passed a law in New York City making it illegal to paint your guns any color other than black, silver, gray and a couple other I am sure I am missing.

I just called the reporter that did the story they showed on CNN. They put me to his voice mail and I told him what I thought about his story and how he shoudl have actually talked to me about the kitty rifle. I also told him that it was made for my wife and is not a threat to any police officer, no matter how he was trying to spin the story. I left my phone number and asked him to contact me, although I will be surprised if I hear from him. He got his sensational anti-gun story out, full of emotional irrational fear and misinformation, and will now move on to something else.

Just a suggestion before painting:
Throw away those Millet X-High AR15 rings and get a better set of rings or mount that will hold the scope's zero for more than a box of ammo. :eek:

I love these painted rifles!

They may also provide a secondary benefit of a tactical advantage too. Your enemy may take a double take on a man (or woman) holding a pink rifle, maybe giving you a 1-2 second advantage to take your shot!

i think thats why they dont want rifles painted. it supposedly might confuse police into hesitating on taking an action against a perp armed with one.

although that is open for deliberation

They don't have a problem shooting someone immediately when they point a cell phone or PS3 controller at them. :rolleyes:

Regardless of whatever hypothetical situation they are thinking up, it is ridiculous to think that a law-abiding citizen painting their gun pink is a threat to them. If a criminal wants to paint his gun, I'm sure he will buy a $3.00 can of Krylon and do it and no amount of legislation is going to stop that. People don't spend hundreds of dollars on a custom paint job just to go shoot a cop. And people that leave loaded guns lying around for children to play with, no matter what the color, are not the type of people that should have them in the first place.

I went to a drug counsiling class with my daughter many year ago, the teacher was ex-LAPD. He made it very clear why he got out. They will shoot you just because they don't like you. This was more, I suppose, a lesson to the kids to say, don't piss them off with all the drug dealing and the like.........if you are enough of a nuisanse.....

LOL. I have a .50 BMG I properly registered through the process outlined in PC 12285 so according to PC 12280(o) I am a person exempt and cannot be prosecuted for manufacturing an assault weapon as outlined in PC 12280(a).

Therefore, I scoff at any assault weapons rules. Bah! :TFH:

Also, I added those parts I forgot on the list.

I remember about a year and a half ago someone on the high road got some older Calvary (sp?) Arms pink furniture for their daughter's AR.
Oleg's done photoshoots of it, methinks.

At the time, I said I'd make any color she wanted for my stepdaughter, but she's been very indoctrinated in the schools about being anti gun before I met her or her mom.

I gotta work on those two.

I first saw a pink AR rifle on guns and ammo tv show a while back, like 3 or 4 years when they went to visit Barrett Firearms about their 6.8 rifles. Ronnie Barrett's daughter has a pink AR rifle above and behind her desk chair, it's displayed like an award or certificate. Barrett Firearms also let's there employee's carry their a pistol/sidearm on them while on the job. We also all know of his stance against California gun laws and his refusal to service any gun from any California LEO department. I also hope they refuse service to individual LEO guns also. Make them all suffer for the bad actions of California
politicians. Only question I wonder about is how many California LEO departments are using Barrett Firearms? Not any or many I bet, so it sucks that his stance might not have any affect. I wish other manufactors had that stance on California gun laws. If we the people of can not have a certain rifle then the police should not have that rifle.
I just looked at their website and yes his stance is still the same and he is going to add Hawaii to his list soon if they ban the .50 cal. Hawaii is trying to ban the .50 cal right now.

I'm in the middle of trying to make the perfect rifle to try and get my wife shooting. She didn't like my other guns but loved a friend's AR which was configured quite differently than mine, so I am using that as a basis. When I first talked to her about it, I asked her about the bARbie-15. She said it was creepy. I don't know, I've always kind of liked it.

A sheriff came in today and saw the pink CMMG lower before I built it. He said someone was going to get killed over one of those things. :rolleyes:

Becky and I disagreed. Becky was on it too man. She said the people that spend the money on these things take care of them and generally don't do stupid things with them. I clarified that people don't leave their guns laying around for people to play with them and I have no intention of ever pointing it at a cop. Later on Kellann told me if she ever points it at a cop, she hopes he/she shoots her.

There is simply no basis for these rifles to ever be treated as anything other than rifles. Cops just need to know they exist and shoot anyone who threatens them with them, just like any other firearm.

I can't wait to take it coyote calling with my dad and get a few pictures of me lying down in camo waiting for the coyote to come in.
