    I agree, and would like to make the point (for your consideration) that many monsters are disguised as pseudo "Friends" and "Family."

    I think I am just as concerned, but in a different way, about the "friend" that tries to make moves on my wife, or the family member who tries to find our jewelry box, as I would be about the 3a.m. intruder.

    To most people, family members pose far greater dangers than strangers. That's worth remembering. Discarnating relatives and intimates is generally frowned upon by society, so making wise choices up front is doubly important and saves the wear on the carpet cleaning equipment.

    Monsters, in the upper text line, is misspelt.

    I like the picture and the concept but the language seems a bit awkward.

    How about...In the life of every adult there should come a time when the monsters gain understanding of why your home is a poor choice.

    Agree -- so I simplified the caption a lot.

    I would suggest changing the bedding. The young lady doesn't stand out enough.

    And possibly the t-shirt.

    I noticed the books in the background. No wonder you've got monsters -- they can't read a "Keep Out" sign if it's in Russian! :D

    That a scope for CQB?
    Also, just a nitpick, but I'd rather have the shells primer side down.

    Best one yet, Oleg!

    Short, sweet and to the point--and the muzzle of that 12 gauge really is a statement of it's own.

    Well done!

    Yet another nitpick: See this thread about pistol grips on shotguns, esp. 12ga. The lady may be in for some trouble if she has to shoot.

    The red-dot, in combination with the pistol grip, encourages a broken nose on the operator. :eek:

    I wish she had a handgun instead of a shotgun. For some reason in my mind one is more likely to pull a handgun if one hasn't even got out of bed yet.

    I like to see more of the models. I like that you use "normal" looking people, and you can imagine them being your neighbor or friend, not some fringe gun nut.

    My handguns are in my closet. My shotgun has 5 in the tube empty chamber and it is in the space between the matress and the wall.

    it looks to me like her hair is falling over a pistol grip stock - i don't think it's a pgo. now, that stock would seem to necessarily be planted against her collarbone given the near-prone shooting position, but even a conventional stock wouldn't solve that.

    i think, however, that she might want to move to the other end of the bed and cover the window, as well as the door ;)

    How about "Not all monster are fairy tales" instead? "Stay in fairy tales" sounds to me like there's a Wicked Witch or Balrog coming through the door. Just my $.02.

    (Please take this as constructive criticism. I like a lot of your posters, Oleg, and I think it's great that you keep exploring new ways of expressing these critical issues to folks who just don't get it.)

    I like it. Do you ever post paper copies of your posters anywhere? Do you give permission for people to use your work like that? Shame for these fine works of instructive art to remain forever hidden here, among the chior...

    Oleg, a gentle suggestion:

    "Not all monsters are in fairy tales"

    and

    "Give them a reason to stay out of your house".

    I think the grammar flows better. Your work is great!

    Nice books, Anton Tšehhov's. What stories?

    Anyway, nice shottie for keeping any uninvited "friends" out of girl's room.

    It is for that reason that my FIL does not know the street address of our last two moves. :fire: We keep a PO box in town for corresponding with most relatives.

    That's not the only danger though ... occasionally the friends of our former neighbor (who is now in prison) show up around here.:uhoh:

    I love the eye and the bore as focal points.

    Well done.

    Great Poster.

    I know it doesn't contribute to the thread, but I gotta point out that discarnate means stripped of flesh. I suppose to use it as a verb would mean to strip of flesh.

    I'm pretty sure you meant disincarnate....but I could be wrong.

    Either way, folks do pretty much frown on it.
