Well, my daughter (Age 12) has decided she wants her own gun but it needs to be pink. The only shotgun I can find is the Mossberg 500 Super Bantam Field Pump. Do any of you have any experience with this gun or would you know where else to look for a pink gun (not the pink .22 rifle)?

She is big for her age and shoots my 870 ok.

No runs, no drips, no errors. Krylon spray paint. Take the stock and forearm off, knock down the factory finish with fine steel wool. Clean with a tack rag, then acetone. Hang wood parts from a wire, then 3-4 light coats of Krylon Hot Pink. After it's dry, 2 coats of spray Pledge wax. I did an old Stevens 20 ga. side by side in hot pink for the wife years ago, still looks like a factory paint job. If you don't trust yourself, any auto painter will shoot the wood for you, but the Krylon makes it about idiot proof. T.

The painted thing would be pretty cool. Go to a sticker shop and get some kind of small decal made with her name on it or something that she likes. Apply the decal before prepping and painting. Remove it when you're finished revealing a pink gun with her name or whatever written in wood grain. That'd be kind of cool.
