I just added my only man-cave appropriate pic - unless you think puppies and or kittens would be OK.

Puppies? Maybe if set in the right scene.

Kittens? It had better be a kitten saving a firefighter from a burning building while fending off zombies and taking a swig of Jameson.

Interesting contest. But I would say that a girl on a trampoline might be a better fit for a video, not a still. Motion can often be important in art! LOL

Yupp, just wondering if anyone had a good still inspired by the old Man Show staple.

Edit, not a ONE in a search on FAA, I see an untapped market!

I don't know if my patriotic pieces are man enough...but since a friend bought one and put it in his man cave...I thought it qualified. ;)

Great shot JC. =)

 

Awesome JC......I'm in


BTW.....I've already got a couple of "MANCAVE" pieces that I'm working on but now I've got to pick up the pace on both.

Brian, I hate the Ravens even more than the Jets. I think SF is the team to beat. I would like to see Randy Moss get his first Super Bowl ring. Enjoy the game! It is always more fun when your team is playing.

Oh, Gregory, the shot of you on the Caddy = BAD A$$!

 

I don't know JC, I hit 7 out of 10 at skeet and was putting one on top of another at 150 yards with a 35 this fall..Not as good with a hand gun but I'd like to try...we're not that far from each other...what do you say?

Works for me, you aren't that far away either. (Though, I have NO guns now that I am in NYC)

 

I have plenty.... take a trip this spring and we'll have some fun..I'd love to meet you..perhaps I'll get in touch next time I'm in the city..

Melanie:

If you hold a rifle like that and pull the trigger, I think you'll poke your eye out. Do you have a magazine in the rifle? They work better when loaded. I thought the trigger was under the stock, not on the side of it.

Hope you can bayonet that elk as he charges you. But I think he's a better at fencing than we are, perhaps. If you're lucky, maybe his antlers will get tangled up in that sling, too.

Did I miss anything, guys?

I hope you can take a joke at your own expense, Melanie. I suspect I might have a few coming my way now, too.

LOL It was just a photoshop joke Gregory but you definitely pointed out all the things wrong with it LOL I just had to do this. I spent about 2 hours making this for this thread. I'm mad at my husband right now. What can I say LOL

Oh I can actually shoot but only with a handgun. I couldn't fire a rifle if my life depended on it, I guess you can tell that LOL

I thought your comment about the antlers getting tangled up in the sling was the best part of your post Hahaha

You got me. I just thought it had really strong "fill flash". Pretty good for a quick photoshop hack!

K, that one didn't work. What about this one? It's not photoshopped, I really was into bodybuilding about 5 years ago. Can I lift weights in your den? LOL Weightlifting is manly! Something has to count! ;)

The guy with no shirt came in second in a bodybuilding competition that day. It was the end of his bodybuilding career. The guy in red nearly always won his competitions but he wasn't competing that day and the guy behind me was training for a competition. These were my friends. Women cannot develop muscles to the same degree as men because they lack the testosterone. I was about as big as I could get no matter how much I lifted. I could bench my body weight, I could curl 50 lb dumbbells, and I could deadlift twice my weight and I'm in my 50s. I think that rates at least a ONE TIME DAY PASS into the man den ;) LOL

LOL Melanie, you are a talented girl. No living creature could make more mistakes with one rifle! (add the string over the gun, position of body, FEMALE BODY, GENTLEMAN!, and also positions of arms, legs, etc,etc.) Minus one mistake of mentioned above though - originaly SKS had an undetachable mag for 10 rounds (which seems the case), so you can not see weather it is loaded or not. However, may be the note about the mag could be still correct - there could be later modifications or customized models with detacheable mags for 20 and even 30 cartriges...
Yes, the gun looks as Soviet SKS-45 carbine, and the shown sample seems to be very interesting. It has a needle type folding bionet, while the majority of SKS, manufactured in USSR, had a sword type folding bionets. (By the way, d'you know that attached bionet and the form of the bionet can influence ballistics?) I've read somewhere that only some rare early SKS samples had needle type folding bionets. Note, SKS was the only gun out of many Soviet experimental models, chambered for 7,62X39 cartidges, which was partly tested in real combats during WWII. However, Soviet military authorities did not decide to suplay Army with SKS during WWII. They preferred to start a long contest for all types of guns, chambered for 7.62X39 "middle" cartridge (carbine, machine gun, storm rifle) in which all Soviet notable gun designers participated (Tokarev, Simonov, Sudaev, Dragunov, Degtiarev, Kalashnikov, Korobov and many others). They didn't work too hurriedly, made long and profound lab. testes of experimental samples, shooting range testes, experimental shootings by some elite Army regiments, etc. They were also accurate and slow in conclusions and decisions, because new firearms already could not influence the events and results of WWII too much by that time. May be the shown is a rare sample of SKS, which was manufactures in USSR even before it was oficially adopted by the Army in 1949. On the other hand, later SKS - 45 was manufactrured in more then 20 countries, so in other countries they could make any changes and modifications, uncluding any bionets. I'd love to know more about this particularly sample of SKS - 45 anyway.

Yury, you seem to know more about the rifle than the owner does. It's a rifle that a friend of mine owns. He lives in a hamlet in the mountains of Alberta. Remote place. I was visiting him last year and he let me hold the rifle. That's when the picture was taken. I shopped the background out and overlaid it over a forest picture. There is no local law in his area and it was remote so he was going to let me take it outside and shoot it with 50 rounds of ammo but it was 3 am and I didn't want to learn to use a rifle in the dark, I would probably shoot his windows out or accidentally kill a poor unsuspecting deer minding it's own business in the forest at the back of his house.LOL I don't think he knew a lot about the rifle but I'm pretty sure it is rare. I tried to talk him into selling it to me but he wasn't going for it :/ It was exciting just holding it, even if I was holding it wrong! ;) It's a beautiful rifle and you're right the bayonet was needle pointed and it folded down. I'll call him in the next few days and see if he knows more about the rifle. I have to get him away from his moonshine to answer the phone so it could take awhile ;) We're talkin' major moonshine drinkin' mountain man who tells me 'your butt is getting bigger' whenever he sees me and thinks it's a compliment ;) I always come back with 'your mouth is getting bigger', then we hug LOL He's a guy that would fit in in this thread ;) *just kidding!* ;)

Melanie, be sure I know a lot more then I wrote about guns and SKS carbines (which means "Samozariadny Karabin Simoniva = semi auto carbine designed by Simonov) in particular, some facts are funny or almost unknown, but it is not the place to desply my knowledge - it is an art web. site. Nevertheless, all that, all firearm related info is still interesting for me. Please ask your friend to find all marks on his gun. There should be the year of manufacture, stamps of the manufacturer, stamps and the lenguage can tell weather it was manufactured in the USSR or elsewhere. Still better if he could make close up photos. Inform me, please, by FAA personal mail if you find out anything. You may also ask me any question about any firearms when need be.

I had another one, but as it turns out, mixing weed eater gas in a dynamite storage shed is a bad idea.
