    These are neat. IIRC you mentioned a Norse version previously. If so, I await it eagerly. :)

    We need more women on the firing line. Target shooting is still a male-dominated sport. cliffy

    Except for the Enfield girl, the rest are all real gunnies.

    I love it. Count me among those clinging to guns and religion, not ashamed to say it.

    Good stuff but...

    The last woman looks like she's scared of everything and like she's fresh off of slitting her ex-boyfriend's tires.

    ..the first combo gives you the impression, that Guns as well
    as God are pretty beat up and outdated.....

    (Religious Freedom is to protect the atheist´s right to
    not believe and to protect them from real-world hassles
    caused by people who choose to be religious.)

    Ah well, politics & belief...hard topics.

    The silencer muzzle has been photoshopped to appear larger. Why?

    Other than that, VERY nice pictures. :)

    Where do you find these people?

    Do you just stick your head out of the window and yell, "Hey! I need a Jew and a Buddhist! Preferably armed!"

    Of do you sit behind a desk and call to your secretary by intercom?

    "Mr. Volk, there's a witch with a rifle here to see you."

    "Thanks. Send her in, Janice."

    Remind me to never take on Oleg in a scavenger hunt.

    I'm afraid it might be dated now after the election, but the image is good.

    I see only bad things from the second to last one. I know its innocent, but I think too many people would read too much into it.

    Hey! I find those pictures highly discriminatory.... since they left out the Haitian with their voodoo doll.... which, by the way, looks suspiciously like Michelle O.

    And unfortunately those would be the ignorant. The image in the background is of the crescent moon on the Pakistani flag. Definitely doesn't mean she's necessarily Muslim (not criticizing you - just talking about the folks that we're both talking about!)

    Nonetheless, its images like this that help shatter ignorance, and those of us in this thread and forum who choose to ignore artificial boundaries and realize that we all aren't really that different, no matter what some people desperately still want to believe about society.

    I really don't like the idea that gun owners are also "bible thumpers" Its simply not ture.

    All I know is that we're going to need both gods and guns after what the libs are going to do to us.

    I agree... I am an atheist and proud of it.

    I normaly like Oleg's work, and I appreciate some of the things that attempted to be done here, like incorporating black rifles and a silenced pistol.

    I just find these images would not be good pro-gun representation. It is not the religions themselves, but rather everything coming together to give a rather strange result.

    For those already in the shooting community it might not be too over the top. For those who are not the message might have the opposite of the desired effect.

    I remember that image in the second to last one being used before; probably mostly because that girl is strikingly beautiful...

    Anyhow by "read something into it" I can only assume that means people will think "muslims with guns are bad". Well, first of all, personally I don't know enough by looking at that picture to know if it is conclusive that that girl would or would not be a muslim. Second, I think the key theme behind 90% of Oleg's work is that guns are for everyone.... certainly all American citizens. The girl to me, looks to be American.

    Personally,I am a Christian,and I do cling to my God and my guns.And,as one of the others already noted,we're likely to need both before we're done.By the way,I don't care if you pray to squid headed Cthulhu,that lil' Neo Pagen girl was CUTE.

    Well, I thought the woman in the 2nd to last photo was beautiful. Not too thin, or fat, and an amazing smile and intelligent looking eyes. There are nice people to be found everywhere, for sure.
