The Pink Pistol is about a female sheriff. She became sheriff after her father, who was sheriff, was killed. She had been her father's deputy and it was the logical choice to step in as sheriff. She's a spunky girl, but still has a hard time overcoming the prejudice against a female being sheriff. She doesn't take any guff from anybody. Her first day on the job, she had to face down the local bully. It seemed the whole town was watching for her to fail. However, she was up to the task, hitting her opponent in the head with her 45. As a joke, the town council presented her with a pink pistol, ordered directly from the Colt factory with specific instructions to make it pink. They thought it would embarrass her and she wouldn't stay on as sheriff. However, she surprised them by keeping the job.
