Sunday Ugly Gun Post

You know, I hadn't originally intended to have this fascination with pink rifles. Actually, I don't have a fascination with them, they're just so fugly that they rise to the top of the visual repugnance barrel. Why, why, why. What kind of man would do this to a rifle? I understand that some women may want to "accessorize" their weapons to be more feminine, although I still find that visually unappealing. But this was done by a man....

This used to be a Hakim rifle. Here's one that's, unfooled with:

Three things about Hakims:

1) They're worth having as an example of the early attempts to have a semi-automatic rifle capable of handling a full-power battle cartridge;

2) There's not a whole lot of them around;

3) They're actually a well made, accurate rifle, which is amazing in itself considering they were fabricated in Egypt, even if the machinery was Swedish;

Thus, why turn one into some kind of metrosexual truck gun?

That bubblegum pink is terrible; it makes me want to pistol whip the person who did it.

What, exactly, goes through a person's head when they do something like this? Not coherent thought or common sense, obviously.

There's freedom of expression, and then there's just plain retarded.
