I am buying one.

I love it. I can just see liberals as they view the calendar: "But...but...she's NAKED, and she has GUNS! It...it is the GLORIFICATION and SEXUALIZATION of GUN VIOLENCE! This is REPREHENSIBLE!"

All said with spittle on their lips...

MAJOR FAIL!



Whats wrong with this picture?

Great photos, but the one with the beautiful blond in the bomber jacket is way off kilter.

Isn't this supposed to be a nastolgic reanactment of pinup babes from WWII?

As it says at the site,
This years calendar is inspired by vintage pin–ups and WWII bomber art.

Well, their is no way they should have taken the photo of the blond babe in the bomber jacket sitting in front of a Toyaota fork lift.

Toyota was the primary manufacturer of aircraft for Japan during World War II.

I would call that a major FAIL!

I'm sorry -- there was a fork lift in that picture?

I just noticed that banglist wasn’t one of the keywords so I added it.

LOL

Yea, I have been accused of seeing thing many men would miss when good looking ladies walk by, but when you have a wife that looks as good as that blond, you may understand why I can see the big picture.

During football season, all my wife has to do is walk in front of the telly, and I have forgotten what the score is and who's playing.

Happy married man here gentleman, happy married man.

LOL...I am happily married as well, but my wife has said a few times: “I married you, I didn’t scratch your eyes out...”

Of course, the unsaid part was: “But if you ever do more than look...”

She walked by while I was perusing this thread, and I imagine she rolled her eyes and smirked...:)

I was having the same problem finding the rifles as the forklift folks were having. If you look at the way i listed the keywords, even “guns” was kind of an afterthought. I remembered i was on a gun blog at the last second.

It is clear to anyone with a clue about photography that many of the shots at the link are of/around the photoshoot, not pics of the calender pics proper. Though there are some of those, too.

Pro tip. Though I’m not a pro (photog).

My suspicion is that we're seeing a picture of the photo shoot rather than the calendar picture itself.

The large white panel (top center) is a reflector that's part of the photo equipment for the shoot. I'd think that the forklift is there to position lighting and would be cropped out of the actual calendar photo.
