    Might be better with a wood-stocked, more traditional appearing rifle.

    Still, great poster. You do good work!

    I'd rather the caliber be 30.06 because more hunters seem to prefer it, but thats just me.

    Another fine work!

    Except for the Ted Kennedy quote, which is correct. Oleg..I'd add the date and any other bibliographical info so folks can check your facts. (I take it this is from his blathering during the "lets add poison pills to the liability bill" this year?


    and I'll second the "beautiful work" comment -- this is one of your great ones! :)

    Great poster, but I agree with VaughnT about the rifle. An model 94 would make a better statement.

    Marlin lever gun. I was wondering when Oleg would make a poster concerning this infamous quote by Sen. T Kennedy. Good job !

    Great pictuer, but I agree with most of the other folks in that a traditonal lever action 30-30 would be best. Many deer are taken with these rifles and if we want the "I'm a hunter the AWB doesn't apply to me" folks to see the point we need to show it to them in a way they can't walk away from.

    All Toad Kennedy cares about is "armored glass, armored limousines". Any gun with a scope is a "sniper assault weapon". When they outlaw our scopes, they'll need to be very careful - a hunter could miss his deer and hit one of them.

    Not to nit pick but has the rifle the model is holding ever been called an "assault rifle" in any sourced material? I am not sure what would be a good replacement either.

    Well.. a .357Mag Buffalo Bore load out of a 18" rifle exceeds 30-30 specs.. so they want to bang the 357Mag too? What about the .44Mag?

    I like the poster, nice Steyr Scout.

    I like it, but I also think that the rifle should be a more mainstream, wood stocked rifle. A lever gun would be perfect.

    Also, since us hunters are thought of, and portrayed as, a bunch of good ol' boys, maybe you could have a model who more closely represents that image.

    I'll fifth or sixth the call for a wood-stocked lever gun...and a Model 94 is probably the most recognizable of those. Otherwise, a great poster.

    Oleg Volk, You da man!

    I love your art work...

    "I don't know anything about art, but I know what I like."

    Granted, that rifle isn't the first one I'd choose to represent the venerable old .30-30 cartridge. My choice? A model 94 Winchester with a scope. No contest... However, I totally agree with showing a rifle that any given "uninformed millionth mom" would easily recognize as an evil weapon of mass destruction and not something to hunt innocent little deer with.

    OLEG, How about getting as many different weapons together as possible that all chamber the .30-30 and doing one of your fantastic photo's of all the weapons that will be useless as a result of the ban... And the line how they try to ban them one at a time, seeking to take them all...
    Some of those million moms may recognize the weapon that put venison in their kids starving mouths last season...

    Sincerely,
    Jim Hazell

    Nice. If you want a nice 1894 levergun to pose with it you can borrow mine. It's the .357 magnum version, not 30-30, but the cosmetic differences are minor enough.

    The Steyr Scout has been referred to as an "assault weapon" in print somewhere a few years ago. Check Cooper's Commentaries for references thereto.

    I have taken a Steyr Scout to a precision long-range course (described as "sniper training without the tactics"). Works very nicely to 900+ yds (with a 10x scope).

    The Steyr Scout was specifically designed to be "general purpose", including hunting.

    Hence the indicated label fits nicely, and the choice of rifle for the picture is ideal. And being a bolt-action .308, the .30-30 is obviously next.

    Might need to re-shoot the photo, as I didn't have a suitable photo with a centerfire lever action. Did have pictures of Gus's guy with a 30-30 but he was too dressed up in it.

    Oleg-

    Talk to George Hill. He's got that green .30-30 Marlin.

    Maybe if SHE was cute...

    In blaze orange camouflage, in a stand....

    It would be a better picture...

    You might want to dress the guy in deer hunting gear with blaze orange hat, etc. just to ram home the hunting connection.

    Yeah, needs to be something that can be put up at gun stores - camo and a deer stand... While you're at it, what perzactly did Kerry say? Any good sound bite type stuff we can use?

    Oh yeah... I'd kill the text at the top. I'd put the "middle" text below the image, and I'd run the quote larger. That's what you want the folks to notice.
