    Very well done, I like this one. The only really tiny detail I could nitpick would be to have an A2 or an M4 with with some nasty looking accessories to provide more contrast between the "assault weapon" and the "meager pistol."

    I made them earlier today. The model is Nicki Fellenzer whose writings you will find at KABA.

    Have the one on the left lose the goggles and ear muffs. She's not in a range environment so it just looks silly.

    Here's my take at it. First of all, the font is slightly off between the two sentences. It's slightly distracting.

    Secondly, I feel like the second statement should say: "Why won't some states trust her with a pistol for protecting her family from enemies at home?"

    That would emphasize the foreign and domestic aspect, further bringing out the hypocrisy in the legal system.

    The word "states" isn't a proper noun.

    Seeing someone in ACUs with orange eyepro and big over the ear muffs looks very odd. I don't think I've ever been at the qual range or training and seen another soldier with that kind of protective equipment. It kinda detracts from the realism in the photo. Oleg, if you plan to do more poster with soldier/Marines/etc in them, I would use some form of Oakleys and in-the-ear plugs. Those are used by the vast majority of military folk.

    I like all of your posters Oleg, but where might I find them, other than THR?

    I agree with taurusower, the protective gear in uniform makes the image look all wrong.

    Oh, bite me... Not every soldier is a rawboned razor-sharp troopie... You've got doctors, nurses, all sorts of folks, most of whom train for THEIR JOBS, and not to run around wearing a tree suit.

    FWIW, most of the scrawny little "hardbodies" I've known would lose (as in "fail mightily") in a fitness contest with an average nurse or EMT female. Hollywood ain't real life.

    Delete the glasses/muffs, find someone with a 'tricked out' M4.

    Also 'her' and 'herself' are too redundant. Delete the 'herself.

    "Why won't some states trust her with a pistol for protection against criminals?" etc.

    Indeed, her M16A1 looks like a throwback to the '70s era.

    I agree to getting rid of the glasses and muffs.

    Why is it I prefer the picture of her with the rifle?

    Guys, you are thinking WAY too much about the M16... It looks PERFECT for a national guard troopie, and hanging half the impedimentia from Bubba's Tactical Emporium just makes stuff look like it came outta the Nerf catalog...

    Oleg in the picture

    You can see Oleg's reflection in the goggles. In the small version it's no big deal, but full size it's pretty obvious.

    Another vote for losing them
