    Excellent!

    Honest, this message sends a chill for personal reasons I will not get into on public forum.

    Thanks everyone! I think it's an awesome poster. I was the victim of a home invasion - it was that experience that forced me to re-think my views on guns & weapons in general. The color of the pants was a coincidence as I didn't plan to do any pics when we shot it! I guess it was meant to be!

    Great job as always oleg.

    you do some awesome stuff. sadly those who oppose our views will never get the message untill it happens to them. im wondering if anyone one else thinks that a more, "graphic" poster would convey the emotion. im not talking about anything bloody, but something where its evident that the intruder isnt a "poor oppressed person striking out against society" but rather what they really are. criminals. rapist, thieves, and murders who care little for law. but then again that is our dillema as gun owners. prove to the PC world that not everything has a logical reason, and that force can only be met with force, not laws and therapy.

    Added: also "scary black guns" dont portray the same immage as grandads old 12 gauge pump. and a confident woman doesnt portray the same image as a cornered car. ( that being scared yet ready to fight to the death)

    rnchick,

    I was afraid you had been a victim...

    Add I have also worked with quite a few ladies that have as well, add domestic abuse to ladies and their kids...
    Then the elderly ones ...

    Hence the chills...

    Thanks Steve - yes, I have been a victim in more than 1 way. It is a striking & chilling poster - but one that I think needs to be shared.

    rnchick, sorry you had to go through that experience.

    You sure strike a convincing pose in the poster, though.

    rn chick and sm: sorry for both of you, you've obviously been through a lot. Shame that so many have to learn the hard way. Thanks to y'all and THR my G-19 sit at hand as I type. Less than 0.01% chance of trouble, but still........

    sm: I envy your skill, teaching ability and student-appeal (& I mean that in a good way, ala THR).

    Oleg: great, again. but for the sheeple, would it have more appeal/power if she simply had a 1911 tucked in her waistband as she did dishes? Appears a little too much the Huntress in your pic.

    Stay safe.
    Bob

    Good idea, Bob F. However, the previously captured invader is doing dishes behind the scenes even now :)

    while i don't disagree with the use of lethal force against home invaders because of the assumption that they have a propensity for killing the invadees...

    your poster might give the appearance to a non-informed person that lethal force might not be appropriate, since the "beating" could be relatively superficial relative to someone being dragged out feet first

    Yeah right ... :rolleyes:

    You think you're gonna get a signed contract from an intruder promising to only beat you up "just a little" ? What if he decides to just violate the contract :confused:

    Here's a contract for ya - "you don't break into my home and I won't shoot you" :p :D

    TP... please reread what i wrote before getting carried away with the emotes.
    no *I* wouldn't take that chance. yes *I* appreciate the danger and feel almost anyone shooting a home invader is justified.

    my point was merely that we THRers are in the minority, and we don't need posters to explain that to us. but as the testimony above shows, people often have to be victims before they understand. the question then is, does the poster help the uninformed get to "home invasion justifies lethal force" from "beating" and "feet first"?

    given that "beating" is usually non-life-threatening, i think most women would be offended at the suggestion that they should kill someone to keep them from hitting them (particularly given the # of women subject to domestic abuse) UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO THEM. Afterwards, they want the biggest gun they can afford.

    sorry it wasn't clearly articulated; i'm only suggesting a more "i'm in fear for my life" angle and "i'm lucky to be alive"

    Excellent poster, Oleg! Great job, rnchick! Sorry you had to go through what you did. You won't again, and hopefully others get the message from this poster.


    Love the matching weaponry and wardrobe.;)

    Great poster, my only comment would be that a spare mag is more secure shoved under the belt halfway inside the pants, than loose in a cargo pocket. But that's a tiny point.

    On that line, here's a cool tip. If you duplex your mags, you have two ready to go side by side in your rlfle. Then your "grab and go" spare is a second duplex, which you shove upside down, one mag inside and one mag outside of your pants.

    Very secure, very fast, and you have 4 full mags loaded and on your person, without jocking up with web belts, vests etc.

    Got versions with mags in the waistband and in pouches. Wanted the mag more visible.

    rnchick ~

    I am glad you're okay, and what a powerful image.

    Heh, I'd change the caption though, simply because I'm fond of word-play. I'd have made it say,

    "The last home invader left her beaten. The next one will leave, beaten."

    Oleg ~

    With your permission and rnchick's, I may need to grab this one for my site too ... have to take a look and see where things are at. I'm trying really hard to keep the site fast-loading, but some images are hard to pass up!

    Great job Oleg, sorry to hear of your troubles rn. This is what every home invader should face.
