So here's the deal. I'm updating the layout of the off-list flier. To avoid any potential copyright infringement, I'm looking to replace the AR photos currently in the flier I swiped from DSA and CMMG. The bigger reason is that this is OUR fight, OUR flier, so it should have pics of OUR rifles.

THE RULES:
Pretty simple...
1)You guys post photos of you AR build in this thread.
2)I choose which photos will be used in the flier.
3)I will be choosing 2 or 3 at the most to use in the flier.
4)The winner will get the very first copy of the updated flier via email! Woo Hoo!!!!
5)Contest ends Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 11pm.

HOW TO INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING:
First and foremost you need to submit a well lit photo with the subject(rifle) IN FOCUS-hint: using a camera phone won't win you this contest. I'm basically looking for a nice "still life" shot of the rifle, or a good action shot. Think of the centerfold pullouts in "GUNS" magazine...good luck.

No, it's not. I need members to up their game and get some slick photos entered. Again, think magazine centerfold or cover.


ETA: Look at how Calguns member Lunde photgraphs his pistols...

OK. I got ya. You are looking for Triple X porn (not the soft core stuff).

I am not that good with the camara but here is my submission.

These are older photos... but, do you want something with a background or something with a neutral that can be cropped out? Are you looking for full pictures, or angled shots?

Only AR builds ? or what about Original FN FAL's or HK's that aren't on the Roberti - Roos list ? I am of the opinion that a Nice FN 50.63 sitting on its bipod would be a very nice addition to the off list flier. That is unless you are limiting it to the Kasler list?

Do I get a volume discount? I have two other completed lowers, and two AK clones as well? :D

Maybe if I can get someone to buy these...

The photos Monsterman and the outdoor photos looks excellent! The photos of OLL on carpet or on a blanket just isn't going to work. Nice rifles, poor layout for photo shoot. This isn't show and tell, it's to get people who don't know about OLL to say " WOOOOOOOOW, we can have those!":)

here's a quick, underexposed shot I did on white seemless. I have all kinds of photo goodies. I'm a student at Brook's Institute of Photography. I think my rifle is boring, but if there is someone in the Ventura Country/Santa Barbara area with a "pimped" out AR, let me know. I'll get a wicked shot of it :D

Although I agree with you, I am specifically looking for AR builds because A)it's probably the most recognizable black rifle in the good ole' USA, and B) the title of the flier is "So You Want To Own an AR-15 in California"


These are older photos... but, do you want something with a background or something with a neutral that can be cropped out? Are you looking for full pictures, or angled shots?
Any/all of the above. Basically I would like the flier to have a pic that people look at and say, "Damn!!!!! I gotta get me one of those!" It's straight advertising, pure and simple. We want the flier to grab attention, get people to come to Calguns, and catch a bad case of BRD.

Does anyone have the link to the first flier? I wanted to print those up for some people. If someone could post it, that would be cool. Thanks.

Erm, just look at any of my posts, the old one's in my signature. :)

I'm also kind of excited about the new version of the flier. It's been needing an update for a while...

I think an action photo with a MMG rifle and a falling magazine will tell the tale....

OR

An action photo with a 223 round engaging the Bullet-Button, and a magazine falling....

Not a Stag. It is a custom build with CMMG upper receiver(B/BC/CH) and a Colt 16" Chrome-lined 1x7 M4-profile barrel and a DD7.0 handguard.

Forgot to mention, guys: the updated flier is sitting in my sigfile. Or, for the sig-challenged:

http://www.cheapspeech.com/ar-flier.pdf

Start taking 'em to the range! If you see the old fliers kicking around on a wall somewhere... see if the shop/range/whatever owner would mind replacing it with the updated one.
