    The original is 10983x3456 pixels. Who wants to rent a billboard for it?

    I can't afford a billboard, but boy I sure do like that one. Good work Mr. Volk (as always!)

    She actually looks like she could put up a fight but still, good one.

    Obviously I don't care whether someone can fight or not. The right to life doesn't only mean the right not to die, it means the right to be totally free from physical attacks.

    I was actually thinking the same thing La Pistoletta.... good idea, but a more "dainty" person would show a more ridiculous thought in the "fighting" option. No offense meant by any means...just "constructive criticism".

    Eexcellent message but maybe choose a different model. That woman does look like she could beat someone up.

    This retired chief creative officer opines that you need a different model.

    Secondly, I wouldn't write it in the passive voice--use active.

    She has the bruises of a kickboxer around the elbows. I've had those bruises in exactly the same spots on both arms.

    I agree with getting a more petite model. Her top also looks like an Army T-shirt; might be better to have something more civilian looking since a Soldier is someone who's viewed as trained in unarmed fighting.

    I like her. Nobody doubts that last photo - damn right she'll win.

    Good role model for the young 'uns.

    I know! I know! Is the correct answer win?

    (I have to agree with some of the others, she looks like she could kick my butt.)

    She looks like she was already attacked with all the bruises on her arms.

    Seriously, if my wife looked like that, I'd turn the gun on myself.

    That's Nikki Fellenzer, right? Whether she were armed or not, I would not wish to be the bozo to attack her. Those probably are Martial arts bruises, and it would be quite the surprise to the attacking scumbag to have his sack smashed with a forward kick, followed by a magazine full of sucking chest wounds.

    The expressions and poses are perfect.
    Any particular reason to address it to husbands?
    It might be a little wordy for a billboard (shorter is usually better):

    I like it, but I can't help but think the message would be clearer with a female model who looks less able to fend for herself.

    The model indeed looks like she would kick me right in the :what:, and win any fight I picked. I think that the same model would do fine, if her fight stance indicated "I have not a clue how to hit you" and she was wearing some sort of flowery 'mom' shirt.

    Otherwise, I love it.

    Agree, but for a different reason.

    Protection in our society is seen as the man's role. More women are skittish with guns than men. If man/husband wants wife to have a gun, the woman/wife will be more accepting of it rather than feeling she has to "spring it" on her husband that she bought a gun.

    The message would also tell wives that there are husbands thinking of them, as well as telling husbands to step up, be a man, quit taking their leaks sitting down, and start DOING SOMETHING about their wife's well-being and safety.
