My brother in law gave me a t-shirt with a graphic of a grizzly holding a generic bolt rifle, and bearing the slogan "I support the right to arm bears."

Cheesy, I know, and an old joke, but it gets grins and comments nonetheless. I'm not a huge fan of wearing gun related apparel (NRA hats, Colt tshirts, etc), but I would love to have a few more gun related shirts of a more jocular nature. Anybody have a source they like?

Do an internet search for "kalashnakitty t-shirt" - they're great.
everydaynodaysoff.com is a cool blog with links to some pretty neat firearm apparel.

Can anyone explain this one to me??

I don't find it funny in the least, or helping the shooting sports at all.

My wife pointed out that very shirt today at Wal-Mart.

My only gun related t-shirt says
Proud Proponent of Gun control... The one with the most guns is in control
And has some Bubba looking hillbilly wielding some AK looking thing with a bayonet and grenade launcher.

not something I would typically buy for myself, but i wear it on speshul occasions.

I have a Tshirt with a picture of a 9mm handgun on it and the caption reads "9 perfectly good reasons for you to shut the %#*} up"

Got it at an adult bookstore oddly enough

Both my sons have T's that are more hunting gun related.

One shows ducks and calls. Slogan..."When nature calls, call back"

The other shows rifle cartridge horozontal. Above the cart. slogan..."you don't hunt?..."
below the cart. slogan..."I'm wasting time talking to you"

www.thoseshirts.com is a good site. They have many weird t-shirts.

These so-called "humorous" T-shirts are almost never a good idea, from a gun owners' PR viewpoint. They usually prove that the wearer is a jerk.

I like the one from Magpul that has a bunch of nuns in the old style habits holding m16's. The quote underneath is "Worst Case Scenario". :)

I beg to differ, I dropped my trigger jerk a long time ago!

I've gotta agree with a good amount of the ones I've seen... though I liked this one in particular:

http://www.wearagun.com/shirtpages/PEOPLE-SHOULD-NOT-FEAR-THEIR-GOVERMENT-THE-GOVERMENT-SHOULD-FEAR-ITS-PEOPLE-T-SHIRT.htm



And the ones with Lady Liberty/Abraham Lincoln/etc having an AK47... is a bit odd IMO since in general that weapon is associated with communism(I'm about to buy an AK74 or Saiga because they are great weapons, but even I don't think that is an accurate representation of what represents the Right to Bear Arms in America). I think that an AR15/M16/1911/Winchester bolt action rifle would be a better way to convey the message, but that's just me being picky.



That said, I don't think I'd wear many of them out in public, at least not on a regular basis... maybe to a gun show or shooting range or something where others could get a good laugh.

flatlander, the gun in the link looks an awful lot like a Carcano. The government certainly feared that rifle in Dallas, 11/22/63.

Maybe it's the other way around. :eek:

I have one I got from "The Gun Store" in Las Vegas a few years back.

Shows a Glock style handgun and boldly says 'I Don't call 9-1-1'

Also have one I got from Ruger several years back...picture of a stainless steel Vaquero on it, along with "Ruger Vaquero

The Cowboy's Choice"

Every gun show has these shirts, as well as signs and bumper stickers.

My only gun shirt says (in small, understated print) "If you can read this, you're in range."

I also have a Beretta shirt, but it just has the triple-arrow and says "Team Beretta". Not really a funny shirt.

Edit: Wow, some of the shirts on the wearagun.com site actually have typos. I support the mission, and some are cute, but editing is good.

Notably: Misspell is "Miss spel" on a shirt. And I don't think it's on purpose. Also improper use of "Its" on "A government should fear it's people".

Also a few more threatening/confrontational ones than I'd prefer. Not great for public image of shooters.

Maybe I'm just tired and those are proper...

Thanks for the link. I don’t wear a lot of gun shirts, but I had to get this one.

I have yet to see a "funny" gun shirt that I would wear. The closest I get to wearing gun-related apparel is an NRA ballcap that hangs on a nail in my gun room.

I have one with the 2nd Amendment on it, but my favorite "humorous" t-shirt is the Celebrate Diversity (http://www.thoseshirts.com/diversity.html) shirt from thoseshirts.com. I don't wear it often, but it gets smiles when I do. My daughter wore out her Kalashnikitty shirt; need to buy her another.

I have a few that are worn to the range. I also have one I wear in public. It sports a medium S&W logo, a black and white rendition of 6 rounds of ammo, and the phrase "bullets make me happy"

I generally receive nothing but good feedback from that one, and have signed up several people for PTC classes as a result.

I had a tshirt I loved when I was a teenager. It had a silhouette of a Barrett .50 cal M82A1 on it and it read:

.50 caliber long distance,
reach out an touch someone.

Not very PC, but this 17-year-old loved it. I looked through my old crap last year, and I couldn't find it :(

One such shirt I recall had several "bullet holes" in it and the caption "Body Piercing by Smith & Wesson." I am guilty of tasteless humor on occasion, but would not actually wear such a thing.

T shirts aside At the end of the drive I have an old piece of round 1/4 plate steel painted with a smiley face sporting 2 bullet holes through the center hanging from a sign that states "You Are Now In Range".:D I don't get many unknown visitors these days.

I like this one ("Coexist" using firearm manufacturer's logos):

http://www.cafepress.com/+gun_coexist_light_tshirt,476334042

I remember a thread where a guy had drawn up a shirt after an argument with his wife that read:

No, I don't want to talk about my feelings.
Lets discuss something more important...
Like 9mm vs .45

Maybe someone can dig up that thread for us ;)

The t-shirt I saw and am still looking for had a bear on a mountain trail with Winchester laying on the trail. The caption was "Lester's, the cheapest ammunition it usually works."

I wouldn't wear the ones that seem challenging or obviously offensive. I do like the coexist one and the gun nut one though. The one that said, "This state allows concealed carry. Think before you act" was cool too.

Not a shirt, but I have this hat and often wear it to the range:

First thing I did with it was make the fake bullet hole into a real one.

I saw a young lady at a gun show wearing a tshirt that had two revolvers printed on it. She had the shirt tucked into her jeans so it looked like she had the revolvers in her waist band. The caption printed accross her chest said:"You Can't Beat A Woman Who Has A Pair Of .38s."

Couple of ways to take that, I guess.

“The one that said, ‘This state allows concealed carry. Think before you act’ was cool too."

Definitely cool. Only problem is that it may give a BG pause to do exactly that. It gives him a couple of options: 1- There is a good likelihood that the wearer is armed, so leave him alone. 2- There is a good likelihood that the wearer is armed, so incapacitate him quickly to prevent an armed intervention by him.

Definitely a range “T”, but not amongst the general population.

I'll wear a manufacture's logo shirt i.e. Glock or Springfield Armory, but that's about it. Wear what you want and this only my own opinion but some shirts I've seen in public just perpetuate the negative stereotypes some people have about gun owners. I don't think they help 2A cause. Once again wear what you want this is just my 2¢.

My sister bought me a t-shirt that read:
"I got a gun
for my wife.
Good trade,
huh?"

I could only wear it to gun shows. My wife wasn't amused.

How is the quality of the shirts from thoseshirts.com?

Can anyone attest to their long term durability?

I'd love a members review of the shirts before I order anything.
Thanks in advance

I fully agree with this. I live in NYC where I must be grateful that the powers that be have graciously allowed me to exercise my 2A rights. Wearing 99% of the t-shirts listed on either of those sites would almost certainly be a reason to rip you to pieces in court, heaven forbid, the need ever arises. I am not a religious man, but I hope to God I never have to use my firearm for any other reason than a trip to the range. Forgive me if I have seemingly gone on a tangent.
