    I love the line "a matter of cultural identity". Hunting has been an integral part of the American culture since before Europeans even _thought_ about coming here.

    Additionally, that's the most bad-ass fortune cookie I've ever seen.

    Love 'em.

    The rabbit is the usual good effort from Oleg.

    The fortune cookie is the outstanding effort from Oleg we see quite a bit of too. :D

    Excellent as usual.

    Too bad so many people would see the rabbit poster and think it's more "civilized" to help those "poor people" by sending them a check so they can buy processed food at McDonald's. :barf:

    "It's rabbits! Shot with .22s! Soylent Green is made out of rabbits. They're making our food out of rabbits. Next thing they'll be breeding us like rabbits for food. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them! "

    I love the fortune cookie poster as well. What 1911 is that? It's a beauty. Is it green or is that just the lighting?

    Both are good, but the fortune cookie one is brilliant.

    Wouldn't that fortune cookie be..

    a mis-fortune for a goblin? Or maybe,a MISS-fortune for the holder of the weapon, if things go the other way :neener:

    The fortune pic needs some chopsticks tho...

    The concept is grand, just a few tweaks to the arrangement would make it exceptional.

    Both are excellent. As a 1911 owner, I have to admit to being partial to the fortune-cookie. It's now my desktop background...

    I really liked the fortune cookie one. I also agree with the rabbit one. A great job as always.

    I don't. Fortune cookie numbers are 2 digits at most: 9, 10, 22, 25, 30, 32, 38, 40, 41, 44, 45, 50 ..... there are plenty without having to put a 3-digit "357" or 4-digit "3006" in there. Just my 3 cents. I expect to receive the correct change.

    I made the progression to make it obvious. Livejournal feedback indicates that 3006 helped non-gun people to comprehend.

    Why not 44? That magnum caliber was "Dirty Harry" and is famous world-wide. Did you want to space out the numbers a little more? 44 next to 45 might not be appealing in such photo ads, especially if you were only going to add 4 instead of the traditional 6.

    <best Homer Simpson voice> "Ummmm! Fortune cookie!"

    This 9 mm owner likes it. Very nice work, Oleg.

    I think the progression across single, double, triple & quad numbers is intelligent & suggestive.
    Undoubtedly, there are others...

    I've attached a crude*, rough draft, photoshopped, 9mm replica, respectfully if playfully inspired by Oleg's fine original, constructed in a few minutes after getting off work on yet another Saturday night,
    but including some other calibers & 1 gauge. ;)

    Regards,

    Nem

    * "crude" in part because it unintentionally & accidently leaves out the venerable .357, my next caliber.
