I have nothing against girlie calendars, but whose idea was it to pose all these women with their fingers on the triggers?

Dude, it's a damn photo shoot. Seriously stop being a trigger nazi especially if it's in a photo.

Nice Calendar.

Calguns will have to work real hard to do better than that calendar.

Technically, it's good but that's not the whole deal. Making a better calendar is very possible. Having done a couple of photo shoots myself (yeah, I got paid by them) for the magazine that most of us grew up with (great memories!), we have the production talent. Get some skilled make-up and hair, find the right models and you're there. I think we could find a gun or two, probably more interesting than the ones in that calendar.

I think I just gave away something... When you do enough photography with exposed skin, the "skin" becomes somewhat boring. So you start paying a lot more attention to the hair, make-up, pose/action, wardrobe, props, location, etc. It's just that you have to rely on you eye to keep control of the photo shoot. If you lose that, you should just put the camera down.

But honestly, that calendar (finger placement being the exception) was very nicely done. I give credit to those who got it done. The finger placement issue is something that the photographer should have caught, had he known to look for it.

This is spot on.

Calguns calendars aren't about skin, they're about showing off *real* shooters and 2A supporters to the world.

This isn't a "Stacked and Packed" calendar effort, this is a "we're the California shooting/RKBA community and we're going to undermine the anti worldview and kick their *** every chance we get" calendar effort.

What we are going to offer is entirely unique, and the fantastic thing about it is that all proceeds will be reinvested into 2A outreach efforts designed to further RKBA in California.

We have some beautiful Calgunners and shooters out there, and I'm looking forward to seeing the results in time to buy a box of them for Christmas gifts.

If they were really locked and loaded, most of them would be freaked out after they pulled that trigger...therefore, this calendar is fraudulent and LYING because those guns aren't locked and loaded!

not lying, 'cause y'all know it's not the guns in the photos that are "locked and loaded". D'OH!

beautiful women, excellently turned out, nice photography. probably not shooters. not *our* shooters.

different thing altogether.

That could actually cause a "accidental discharge" if one is not careful. LOL!

If they need some instruction to keep their fingers off the trigger, I'm their man.

There's this concept called discernment...

Those who purchase the calendar probably aren't buying it for proper gun training or month/day awareness, if you get my drift.;) I think you post makes a good point, but you can indicate sarcasm with a smillie.

If you have calendars with these types of babes then who cares what guns they have. I mean what guns they are holding. :D

It's really almost impossible to get models to keep their fingers off the trigger during a photo shoot.

You guys aren't thinking deep enough.

A finger in the hole.
or
An erect finger near the hole.

Excellent - They've got the C&R covered -

Guys - Even with a gun calendar - The models are not shooters - The photog is probably not a shooter - The editor is probably not a shooter - All they care about is will the calendars sell -

Cokebottle
12-05-2009, 7:24 PM
Yup.

And really, the general public, politicians, and gun-grabbers don't even know the difference (which is why trigger discipline is so difficult to instill in new shooters).
They look at a gun and they don't make the connection between the trigger and the gun firing... the gun has a mind of it's own and will kill anyone that comes near!

Besides... I didn't see any guns in those pictures :D
