....sigh.

Okay, people...how many times do I have to tell you? Putting a gun on something does not make you clever or edgy.

It only reveals you to be a lazy artist who relies on shock value instead of actual, well...art.

(TBolt has another example here.)

Buck up little reference angel. Spring will come, eventually. Do you need a stint at the range to lift your wings back up into the sunshine?

I can think of a couple of very feminine shooters who might enjoy the real deal handpainted in that fashion. Would not be the first firearm with a floral motif though more usually they are steel engraved oak leaves and Teutonic Hunting scenes, grapevines and such. This might just be the ticket to turn the tide! How about Spode Christmas Tree handgrips for a 1911!

If I had ma druthers, I take some hand-carved, aged ivory grips for my 1911.

Here, this may make you feel better. Jenny of Call to Wings and I are headed out as soon as her carrot cake finishes baking to a gun show. In Wasilla, AK. At the Wasilla High School, actually, and sponsored by the Wasilla HS Hockey Boosters Club.

What was that about the difference between hockey moms and....?

I can't help but laugh that the artist actually suggests wearing this shirt in order to "get a sweet piece of ass".

I have quite the t-shirt collection, and not a single on of them gets me any ass. It just gets people staring at my chest...and really, if you can't be subtle enough to check me out without making it obvious that you're looking at my boobs...you don't deserve my ass

Should be a chainsaw anyhow, it's so much more visceral! And artists are messy - messy thinkers. They think the mess is purity of expression but it's just laziness.
