    Henry Bowman, that handsome devil (ok, attorney, which is scarier) rides again.

    I am considering changing the text to:

    Door crashers won't wait for us to get ready
    So prudent men keep enough lead on hand
    Keep their powder dry and aim steady


    Don't want the reader to misconstrue the guy in the photo as a door crasher. What do you think?

    How about shortening to just a couplet:

    Door crashers won't wait for us to get ready,
    So keep your powder dry and aim steady.

    Invaders do not announce
    Be a prepared Homeowner ready to pounce

    Doors crashings in are in vouge
    Are you prepared to send your invaders to the Morgue?

    No Time for Nine-Eleven
    When the door crashes in
    Will it be you or them
    That gets sent to hell or heaven?

    I don't think the guy in the photo would be mistaken for the bad guy.

    I also like SuperNaut's suggestion.

    Sorry, Oleg, but it's too wordy.

    Home invaders aren't welcome here.

    Shout for help or SHOTGUN?

    Shout for rescue or SHOTGUN to the rescue?

    When the door crashes in will you be able to protect your family?

    Shotguns have been protecting homesteads for 200 years. Are you ready?

    Thieves came looking for cha-ching,
    they found some ka-chunk instead.

    Hmmm, I say bad guys find Henry "patently offensive"!:neener:

    BTW, what's all this then with outdoor ready positioning? Get that buttstock in the shoulder, counselor.:D Is outdoor ready just for the camera?

    How about: "You can't make a reservation for an emergency. Be prepared.":D

    No buttstock. It's an AOW. Children, puppies and kittens around the feet, thus the outdoor ready position. ;)

    Boy...
    My bubble got bursted...

    I thought Henry had a "really big Foyer" and with all the Trees, Plants and all in the Foyer, well...it was like being "outdoors".

    I understand some tilecrawlers have only a small "snail mat " or "slug rug" in front of inside of door...Just thought Henry was different. :neener:

    I think sometimes more is more. In this case, the added verbage works :cool:

    Ah. In that case, how 'bout: "Oh, man. I hope I never have to actually fight somebody with this thing."

    Sorry, couldn't resist. :evil:

    I, too, think the original is a bit wordy. Maybe: "The only way to face a home invasion . . . . is with adequate preparation."

    You would remember better than I. We need to see the picture of OEF_VET so we see them all at once! :D

    Henry Bowman, even if it did have just a pistol grip, as long as it was over the minimum barrel and overall length, why would that make it an AOW as opposed to a regular old shotgun? I was under the impression that for a shotgun to be an AOW it could never have had a stock mounted on it.

    Maybe reshoot or photoshop in the background the interior of a home. Does not have to be in focus, just enough to set that scene that Henry is clearly the resident.

    <chuckle>

    Well a ficus or one of them fake trees in the background, the wife in the background with an apron, flour on face and a rolling pin in hand...

    Just passing on what a lady friend offered up...

    She thinks Henry needs a dishtowel tossed over a shoulder, to look as if he came running out the kitchen from assisting the wife with supper...

    If it had a vertical front grip and no stock, then it would be an AOW.

    I misremembered because we also had such a shotgun there and did some pics with it, too. Oleg has SOT friends who drop by with toys.

    And... No one would ever mistake me for a bad guy. ;)
