Personally, I like "basic black", too, though when I finally get an AR there is a certain temptation for putting some anodized purple someplace. :-)

The funny thing is, "pink for girls" didn't become custom until the 1940s, and a 1918 apparel industry trade publication actually wrote that "The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl."

Off topic a bit, I know, but the curious will find an interesting read
