    Gallery of Armed Americans.

    I found this portrait gallery of Americans at home with their guns.
    The collection is being made for publication into a book this year, and they are still taking submissions if any of you are interested in getting involved.

    Very nice! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Looking at these pictures, I see a fairly impressive level of trigger finger discipline. I don't see a single person who clearly has their finger on the trigger (there are a few photos that are ambiguous, but a lot of them show the index finger clearly extended). I wonder if the photographer was coaching them, or if proper finger position has really become that universal.

    Hello, I'm your long lost half brother. Really, I am. Mom said you should give me some of those. Really, I am a relative. Can I have a few. I really am. Man, that is an awsome collection.

    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    You can't have a picture of me and my family. Mulder was right: "Trust no one"! Those that should know of our state of armament already know, those that don't can go to h#ll.

    That will be my wife and I in about 30-40 years. LOL My wife hates guns. She married a combat vet who was given his first rifle at age 4.

    Guy in photo #1 better watch his P's & q"s, she looks big enough to knock the stuffing out of him if he doesn't.

    Picture number 3 sure has a fantastic collection. I think I must be his other long lost brother.
