    Feels a little bare on the gun-side of the poster... but I love the Mauser HSc.

    Great design as always sir!

    However, if death came to my door... I wouldn't have access to a pay-phone-esque emergency phone. Perhaps better to use a photo that would be present in a typical home?

    Using IdahoFarmer's idea, a phone with a 911 decal prominently displayed, sitting next to the pistol?

    The phone used is typical of a college campus. Students are my target audience.

    How about the pistol partially drawn from a handbag, sitting on a table, or being carried... just for a little background/filler.

    If students are your intended audience I would use an image of a cell phone with 911 on the screen. Most of us college students only have cell phones and do not set up land lines at their college residences. Also the image on the handgun side should be proportional to the phone on the right. Great message behind it though.

    I'm thinking a folding cell phone and a stainless J-frame revolver would make a good combination. Both are similar in size and could fill both sides of the frame without either being sized disproportionately.

    Yeah we have the crappy Blue light "emergency" beacons. I would throw a cell phone on there instead of land line.

    Nice work, Oleg! The disproportionality is disturbing, as noted.

    I've wanted to see something like a close frontal pic of a person holding his jacket, coat, whatever, open with a cell phone in the belt on his left side and a gun on the right side (naturally!) and a line down the center of his torso. A somewhat lame caption would be, "If you're attacked, which is on your side?"

    Actually, come to think of it, your simple caption "Which One?" might work well in this one.

    Oh well, nobody ever said I was one uh them creative types.

    You could use a compact pistol and a cell with 911 showing on the screen.

    I'd lose the "If death comes to your door" bit - a bit melodramatic, and NOBODY has an "emergency" phone in their dwelling...

    INSTEAD...

    You're walking home at night...

    Those guys are following you
    And talking loudly
    About what they plan to do
    To you

    Which Choice Keeps You Safe?

    Works for me. I think the use of negative space on the gun side is quite effective.

    We had those blue light phones on campus at my college too.

    In place of a phone you could also have a lazy looking 911 operator sitting at a call desk.

    I might try something extra to reinforce the fact by the time the police get there you could be dead. Perhaps at the top of each put something.

    Like over the phone put "Police response time X minutes" Then over the gun "Response time zero" or something similer, and then place the current text at the bottom or maybe with slight modification to shorten it

    I like it. Maybe this defeats the purpose of your illustration, but since guns/CCW are generally (if not universally) prohibited on campus - perhaps an empty holster on someone's belt in the face of a situation where it's needed. I hate that feeling of an empty holster.
