That pellet gun looks like a lot of pistols, but I think you're right because of the grips. I have a Springfield XD and was pretty sure it looked like it.

They'd need to make sure to color the orange tip black first.

That makes it "gangsta".

regular handguns can come in any color, so making a pellet gun or air pistol pink or orange in color accomplishes nothing.

why are the police blaming the police. Maybe the parents should have taught their 8th grade stun, you dont bring a gun (fake or real) to school - and you sure as hell dont bring a fake gun to a gun fight! The police did what they were supposed to do...

The Rev. Jorge (HOHR'-hay) Gomez apologized to the young people among the 400 mourners, saying "it is our fault as adults that the world is the way it is now."

Maybe some kids here will wake up now... they need to realize why they have a free school and what the purpose of their being there.

yeeeaaah.

I was referring to the fact that most pellet guns have an orange tip so that people know they're not real, not the color of the weapon itself.

and Im aware of the existence of black spraypaint.

I watch a lot of tv and I never see the cops and robbers shooting it out with pink or green firearms.

OK, once on Project Runway the gay judge guy shot a losing contestant with a beautiful teal blue pistol, but that was a one-off.

What's the address so I can send a donation. To the cops, so they can buy more bullets.

If this kid was shot in the head like his family claims, then it would'nt have been an open casket.
