    Looks good. I think this one will really get the point across to some.

    Some might say: "But only a totally depraved fiend would attack a pregnant mother."

    Yep, that is why she needs to be able to protect herself and her child. Too many goblins out there.

    Oleg... I have an idea for you if you want to use it... and I think with the current state of military affairs it will hit home to a lot of people...

    Do a side by side with the same young woman... left side picture in full Army BDUs with holding the current military sidearm, the Berreta 92. Caption it with something like, "Feminists say this woman is as competent as any man to defend herself and her country."

    On the other side, with the women in casual civvie clothes and holding the same gun, have the caption read, "Feminists say this woman will have her gun taken away and used against her."

    Since my wife served 26 years in the military I know this one will cause a lot of people to stop and think.

    Looks great.

    I was going to mention that the grip doesn't fit her hand very well but then I realized that Glock grips don't fit anybody's hand very well. :neener:

    The poster hits home the idea effectively. It has an excellent message. I just keep looking at it and thinking it will be offensive to some. I don't want it to be offensive, but a little bird keeps pulling at me....

    watermelons, breasts.... watermelon rinds, citrulline, viagra, pregnant woman .... I don't know. Just my opinion, dismiss it if you choose.

    These posters are obviously directed at the anti's, but do enough anti's actually see them? I'd really like to think so but usually an anti is ignorant and not willing to learn what his website wants to teach. Is there any kind of mainstream media that he/we can put these posters in so more eyes see them? I think most people that see it are people like us, and that is just preaching to the choir.

    Mr. Volk,
    I like the concept and I think the photography is really good but, with all due respect I have to agree W/ .22 rimfire. Some women are going to find the watermelon analogy offensive. May you could try the same photo W/out the melon?

    S'funny - I'm usually very quick to spot any double entendre but in this case I took the watermelon as an analogy to the preggy-belly. Either I'm getting old or y'all just have dirty minds :D

    JackBurton, that's a good idea.. if Oleg already covered it, kudos to him, too. I haven't visited a-human-right.com yet (this is the first I'm hearing of it), but I'll be there shortly.. (my wife is also a former USSR national.)

    She is carrying small for 8 months. :)

    I think the poster is great and the watermelon thing is a common joke with pregnant women so I think it strikes just the right note.

    I never thought the watermelon thing had any sexual implications. I was thinking about the weight gain aspect

    You're a better man than I am, Killer Bees (note to other folks: it's a metaphor and a Kipling reference; 3KillerBs gets it already). My back would probably never recover from that.

    At first, I thought your picture was of my beer belly. It took me a minute to figure out what was going on.

    *sigh*

    Slightly mixed message, IMO, though an intriguing image.

    Since she *has* a gun, the question "can she run away" doesn't strike me right; it looks, from her being armed, and her confident posture and expression, that running away is not on *this particular woman's* list of needs.

    If she had a shopping basket in the other hand, that question would make more sense to me.

    As currently pictured, it's more like "She knows she can't outrun a criminal," or "Not everyone can run from an attacker."

    cheers,

    timothy

    :D

    I wouldn't be making that picture public if I weren't willing to take the inevitable jokes. LOL

    I'm not sure my back ever did recover. And that's probably my second-favorite piece from Kipling. I used to be able to recite quite a bit of it -- complete with bad, stage-fake accent.
