    I'll refine this idea over time and fit into sound-bytes. For now, here's a straight up illustration:

    Very cool. Just when I thought you'd hit every division of society (different races, sexes, economic backgrounds, etc.) you come up with this. Impressive, Oleg.

    Can I be the first to rag about ear protection? :p

    Nah...

    Great idea here, Oleg.

    Another aspect would be for consideration of multiple, inexpensive, "Friday+1 Evening Specials" **GASP** scattered around the home.

    This to address mobility issues faced by a growing proportion of seniors who can't reach a safe room (where they can access their defense and communications hardware) when suddenly facing an intruder induced situation. Much better to have the hardware come within easy reach upon need, rather than trying to outrace an athletic challenge by the zombie(s).

    Or... CARRY IT (on you) before you are carried by six to the back forty!!

    Not sure how this could be presented via imagery, but thought I'd give my impressions on yet another important but oft overlooked topic. Your eyes are wide open Oleg!

    I like it very much. But personally, to me, an "all-American" rifle like an AR-15 or a Mini-14 makes the same point without the AK-47s "baggage."

    A wood stocked M1A/M14 would look SWEET with a 20rnd mag in it.

    I am trying to mainstream AKs and "black rifles".

    BTW... Nice font choice as well as text coloring job in the second statement. I almost didn't notice it... perhaps I'm starting to need eyeglasses too!

    And yet there is another subtle and understated concept in the photo... it's that the elderly AK (now 60 years old) has it's own set of spectacles as well. There is something to be said about duality... and whatever it is, I guess the photo already says it!

    But as it is, I think it's ready for distribution far and wide. Job well done.

    I don't think the AARP aproves of this - we old farts are just supposed to be nice polite victims according to them.
