    This is actually a spin-off from a desktop-wallpaper-at-work-thread.

    I keep my screensaver fairly innocuous. The words "Front Sight" bounce around the screen in slow motion. To the unitiated the phrase is pretty harmless. But to us shooters....... words to live by. Actually -- having a figurative eye on life's front sight is a good credo by which to live. But that's a different thread.

    So how do you incorporate your passion for RKBA and the shooting sports into your workplace screensaver?

    I don't have a screensaver as we're not allowed to use them, but I do use a photo I took myself for the background. I get a lot of comments and most of them are positive. It's always something along the lines of "When you taking me shooting?"

    That is a very nicely done photo. I have got to find a way to take some fashion shots of my own hardware --- sadly I have no digital camera so I guess it's a matter of digging out the ol' 35mm one touch and hoping for the best possible.

    My department laptop has an animated cut away Browning cycling that I picked up from a fellow student at the Master Marksman Course at Robinson in Little Rock .....we are not allowed to install unapproved software, but since I'm on the firearms staff and its only the laptop and noone else sees it......well, its a non-issue so far.The wallpaper is a Caspian 1911, also unapproved...oh well.

    I have the Beretta 92 screen saver that I downloaded from BUSA on my PC at work. No problems. Our MIS guy even installed it for me.

    Everyone at my work knows about my passion for fire arms and iether tolerates it doesn't care. Last year I had a dillon-aero calendar on my cube wall, the only comment was from the head-honcho who stopped by, thumbed through it and gave a little "hmmm" nod as he walked away. Didn't get one this year cuz they changed the calendar/picture ratio and I am not sure I could get away with it. I have several pitures tacked to my cube of my Army days and some neet hunting trips I went on (with the kills even) not one word from anyone. My wallpaper is randomly cycling fishing pics of me and my wife and for my screen saver, I scoured the internet for gun-porn pics and I use Windows XP's slide show to cycle through them. The HR gal told me I might have a problem some day. I asked her if anyone complained and she said no. I told her to quietly tell me if someone does and I will remove them. Not one word in 5 years. If someone does, it will be a singing Barney screensaver :evil:
