    Good one Oleg! Not only does it make a point, it gives me a chuckle.

    Me too. I'm too old to lolspeak much, but that's good.

    The only thing, and this is probably picky, but....why is she all hunched up in herself? Body language wise, that says "vulnerable, scared, hiding". Now, mind you, if someone is committing mass murder around me I too will very look vulnerable, scared, and will be hiding :neener: but, for a poster, maybe a stance and an expression that looks a little bit more assertive?

    Just my highly overinflated $.02.

    It might be my perspective, but I'd think a model that was obviously old enough to have a carry permit would be a better choice.

    I'd like to see one with an older returning student with a CCW being denied their right to self defense by the university addressed.

    Service member in LBE or LE in uniform and weapon contrasted with same person as student with books. "I already passed a test to get my permit and now you expect me to throw books and computers at a murdering lunatic?!?"

    If the state trusts them to carry, why can't the university?

    And it's a huge problem that the vast majority of students are under 21 and can't even obtain a hand gun in many places.

    Oh, and give her something better than a POS Kel-Tec. :rolleyes:

    I like it. Very good message. I would move the "O Rly" text to the right a bit, to center the message in the white space. It would make it so that she's pointing her gun at the message and it would look nicer.

    Nice work, but I agree with some of the other posters. I thought it was great but an older model and something implying she had a concealed weapons permit or her University wouldn't let her carry on campus.

    Oh, and Mr. Volk...I love your use of lolspeak. Srrsly. When I se teh owner of THR use lolspeak, it makes me ROTFLOL and fills me with great joy...no sarcasm implied or intended.

    Being a "newby" here, I don't catch much of what you are saying (lolspeak).

    As for the original post, I agree. I also agree with the statements so far.

    That's a great one. Should appeal tremendously to the student age groups.

    I think it's perfect. She could be 17 or 24, so age is not an issue so far as I can see.

    Me likez. Srsly. :cool:

    I'm in college, and I don't think she looks too young at all. The only thing is, I agree with springmom - she should probably be a little more assertive, standing up straighter. And maybe move the "O RLY?" more to the right.

    I very much like this one!

    Might be your perspective. I'd lay good odds she's in her 20s, m'self. 23 or higher.
    Nice job.

    I like it overall.

    Is "O RLY" regional slang? I don't get it.
  16. Geronimo45

    Geronimo45 Well-Known Member

    O RLY means "Oh really?" Might be text-speak, some lolcats stuff... bit outside my operating radius. It is of the internet, though, AFAIK.

    Excellent, no cocky expresion, just a casual stance and ready for business...

    I'd lose the text speak. Otherwise, it's good.

    How about one on the professors who are dumb enough to bring a laptop to a gunfight?:D
