Pic Thread: Gun Related Weddings


April 24, 2006, 10:19 PM
So I'm getting married in about three months and as a big joke, I thought it'd be hilarious to get a posed pic of her dad holding a shotgun (obeying the 4 rules, of course...well, except maybe #2! :neener: )

We probably won't do it since it would be in Los Angeles, but just wondering if anyone had anything like that to share.

The Slingers in matrimonal bliss. Funny story we had planned on getting a few "Bonnie and Clyde" wedding pictures but sort of "lost" our guns when a bridesmaid took the the gun case, thinking it was a makeup case or something to the reception hall. Well having the best photographer ever....he smiles and says, I gotcha covered and whips out the Ruger and Kel-Tec pictured. I would have prefered the SIG and Walther but it wouldn't have been as good a story.

Different altogether but still on the wedding theme...

I thought it was the husband who was supposed to commit suicide right after the wedding! :evil:

I'm going to a wedding this weekend, and instead of the typical round of golf for the men before hand, we're shooting on the family's 200 acres, should be fun:cool:

"The wedding was
a formal one.

Her daddy had
a white shotgun..."

I loaned out a black powder double shotgun to a friend for a wedding pic.

You could try one of those 'old west' studio photographers.., there HAS to be one near LA?

Sorry no photos, but my fiance and I are in the process of getting authorization to do a volley of fire (blanks of course) instead of throwing rice as we walk out of the Irish Catholic church. Shooting over the newlyweds heads is an old (maybe outdated?) Irish tradition.

typical round of golf for the men before handNever heard of that one, and sure wouldn't support the waste of good rifle range land.

I was busy getting tons of food to the reception hall and renting a car for the honeymoon.

The night before my wedding ( June 04') Me and about ten of my freinds went out to the range with teh following

Two AK-47's
1911 gold cup
hi-point 9mm pistol
.357 subbie
.375 H&H mag
870 marine magnum with twin pistol grips
.75 cal blackpowder pistol

and like 4500 rounds of ammo. The cops came by about two hours in wondering what was going on. Then they drug out thier MP5's and joined us!

Here is Tactical Response's take on a lightly armed wedding party.

Heh. When I officiated at Betty's wedding in Nashville a couple months ago, bets were being taken on the number of guns per capita at the ceremony (including the minister, of course! :D ). We reckoned we'd probably set some kind of record . . .

Most of my groomsmen and many guests were armed.

My bachelor party consisted entirely of a day at the range.

no pics but have participated in one wedding at the deer camp. Everyone in blaze, everyone carrying a deer rifle.

Another one in NoDak where the bride had a Camo petticoat just showing under her top layer of white. I know the engagement ring was given in a box of #2 steel. At the reception on her daddys ranch, (A WHOLE steer on the bbq) much use was made of the duck tower in the back. Both mr and mrs work as waterfowl guides and working dog trainers.

whips out the Ruger and Kel-Tec pictured

uhh... ugly lookin' guns. Should have taken the pics with something nicer. I guess the cost of the wedding is a lot already ;)

So, did anyone fire their gun after they say 'i do'? :D

I think the entire Groom's side was arms for my buddy's wedding.

Then, there is a friend of mine who specifically asked if she could get some shots like these done.... She specifically wanted her Thompson, but I think this one turned out better. Might have to go back and brighten it a little though....

I have every intention of finding an old exposed hammer side by action, adding pipes to it as "barrels", having said assembly chromed, and outfitting it as "the wedding shotgun", complete with white ribbons...

Go ahead and chrome a cheap coach gun - it'll look better, AND you can actually shoot it at the reception!

I do not have any pictures of it but 30 years ago I had a gun rlated Batchelor Party . We all went camping on a friends farm and took our guns and spent the week end shooting and camping and having a good time .

If he were REALLY the coolest photographer in Nashville, he'd have had some different guns...:D

Your photographer might be the 2nd coolest, maybe, since Amish Bill doesn't actually LIVE in Nashville; otherwise he'd only be the 3rd.
