Since 1775, the Marine Corps has been winning battles and defending our nation with giant vagina extenders because obviously everyone who ever touched a gun in hung like Ken. .

I didn't say anything about size DEFENSEMO but thanks for that touching tribute.   The photo and boldface really made it hit home.

How can those be photos of a gun pointed at me when there's no one holding it? Oh, right. A clever ruse by the anti-gun nuts blaming the tool instead of the user.

No one will jerk off to that, they'll be too busy mocking the author for misidentifying the pics.

Actually, it's just an artist doing a composite image study. It's one of the oldest artistic endeavors: to view the known at an unknown or impossible angle. In this case, you can't actually photograph guns like that. It's just not how optics work. So he took many images of each one and combined them into those hyper detailed ones. He even says it's not political.

Grain of salt, etc. but this is really just a textbook photography project so I'm inclined to believe him.

I started wondering when they labeled what was clearly a 1911 as a Rhino. Then when the one labeled as a 1911 is obviously not. And I think the one labeled as a Beretta might actually be an Uzi Micro.

*edit*

Now I've gone though all the pictures. Damn are they ALL wrong??

I think the first two are correct, the Desert Eagle and the S&W revolver, but a lot, if not all of the others are farked up. I haven't tried to properly identify all of them because BASEBALL IS ON and I'm fapping to photos of cretinbob's cats.

I think that's a "nope" on the revolver:

Smith & Wesson K-38:

Unless that's some kind of custom handle.  Even then the rest of it looks wrong.  Looks more like a Colt Python.

Yeah. I think they are only showing us part of the photo set, and mixed up some captions with guns they didn't include. here's another link with some crossover

It might be decorated, but that large bulbous handle is not just for show.

"In doing so, the project creates large-scale, extremely detailed, and uncomfortably in-your-face frontal photographs. The images have a jarring beauty in the symmetry of design, the depth-of-field, and the level of detail-all the more powerful for their implicit violence. These subjects have, quite literally, the power to kill".

nothing 'uncomfortable' about any of those photos.

but congratulations for describing human beings.
 
2014-04-02 01:39:50 AM
Ah, so they fixed some of them. Though they still have the last two labeled as 1911s when they're not. And still apparently can't spell "Glock".
 
2014-04-02 01:48:05 AM
Not a single Ho-Point neither.

It'd be far more effective with a hand on the gun.

As it is, it looks like a gun advertisement.

Either you have some very long arms or that grip is too far forward on that rail to be practically used. Unless of course you plain to aim from the hip, in which case why no laser?

Some people do the thumb over bore thing, which is easier if you have a vertical grip to the front.

I can assure you the desert eagle is correct.  looks just like I remember.

never play quarters against a redneck ex-SEAL with a handle of Jim Beam and kill it in under an hour.
