    Very Nice!




    Back in the day, Colt ran Ads in Field & Stream and other Outdoor Sports Magazines, with the .223 ctg, in AR platform , being a great civilian hunting, and general purpose carbine.

    Nice. Subtle.

    Subtle, like a trout upside the head.

    No revision required.

    And she even has an EBR: Evil Beige Rifle!

    I like it!!

    The problem comes from non-gun owners and non-hunters who think "semi-automatic assault rifles" are overkill for hunting. When I've mentioned that I've used an AR for deer hunting, I usually get comments like, "Geez, is there anything left of the deer!?", or, "Isn't that kinda overkill for deer!?" I then have to explain the whole intermediate cartridge concept, and that an AR firing the .223/5.56mm is actually less powerful than your average deer rifle like a .30-06. Many people have been indoctrinated to think these rifles are extremly powerful, more powerful than us mere mortals should posess, by the media.

    I do like the message a lot, but I'm afraid many people like the ones I mentioned will not get it.

    So explain it to them. The images are for starting discussions and thinking/learning processes.

    Yes you are right Oleg, and I try my best to explain it to people when it comes up. Some people will never "get it" though.

    AR-15 rifles aren't allowed for hunting purposes here (with VERY few exceptions). Watch out, or you'll suffer the same fate.

    Yeah, you're such a racist Oleg (sarcasm). I like that post (more sarcasm) that says they think the NRA "propaganda" should say "Why do the same people who insist on a sporting purpose for my gun get upset when I go shoot up my school with my automatics". What a maroon. That is the type of person there is no argueing with. They have already made up their minds that guns are "evil" and us mere "civilians" can't be trusted with them, but governments can, even though governments are responsible for the worst mass murders in history. I just don't understand the mentality of people like that. :cuss: :banghead:

    Some people are idiots.

    You could make the same poster with an armed black man ("Black Man with a Gun", paging Kenn) and it would have the same impact.

    Some people are so hoplophobic that they must start slinging mud in hopes of killing the argument before they are required to strain the severe limits of their logic.

    BTW: Your model really is quite beautiful. I don't make comments like this lightly. My compliments to the Creator on a job well done.
    Yes, God, a job very well done indeed.

    Ha. At $189.50. I'm pulling out a $100,000 loan and stocking up. Then getting another loan to stock up on mags and ammo at similar rock bottom prices.

    Once again, an excellent job, Oleg.
    Long has the Second Amendment been protecting the First, I think it is time for the First to pay back in kind.

    Affirmative Action

    Well, under affirmative action, I guess we should start using UGLY models for our 2A message?

    Whatcha think, any way we could get [unnamed politician] to pose for some of these shots?

    No?

    Yeah, well, hardly any surprise.

    While beauty is sometimes skin deep, ugly goes clear to the bone.

    Incidentally, just so we're clear on this:

    It can be said that aesthetics is the wavelength of the soul.

    If you have a message, and you want to "modulate" some kind of "carrier" to convey that message, a message modulating beauty as a carrier will have far more success than the same message modulating ugly.

    The world of advertising stumbled on that principle generations ago. You've heard any number of variations on this ("sex sells"), but the plain truth is that people are attracted to beauty and repelled by ugly.
    So the criticism of Oleg's work because it employs beauty is really only an indictment of the detractor's hypocrisy -- and a ringing endorsement of how well Oleg has chosen his subject.
