LOVE it! :heart: Winchesters ;)

Such a great concept, though, and pretty original- I haven't seen anything like this!

I like this a lot.
It so simple. Yet, the message is huge.
The bullets represent war, blood, evil, death. But they are shaped as a heart - which reminds me of that many battles and fight are based on love and such.
Also, the fact that you live in America makes the message ever more clear. To me, America is much based on guns.

Very good! :)

This actually reminds me of the Rihanna's song "Russian Roulette." Very cool but kind of scary.

Well thank you so much! I have a winchester rifle that means alot to me! My dad`s brother found it in a field. The model is 1894 and its a lever-action rifle!

hahaha I wish I just stumbled upon rifles in fields!
If I find time this summer, I'm going to try to get a gun license and a license to carry...but I'm on the East Coast, so I'm not sure how close the nearest range is to me =(

:onfire: <--that's me burning in jealousy that you have such a cool rifle.

KimberleePhotography Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist Photographer
Haha!! Yeah I want to get me gun license too! I also know how hard it is to find a range, I would love to find a close one! I want to try the compound bow too!!

:icongunslingersaura:
GunslingersAura Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
woah. not gonna lie, I had to google "compound bow", and it looks pretty serious.

At camp a couple of years back I used to do archery, and I got pretty close to getting my American Archer. In the end I got too old for the camp and didn't have enough time to get to 50 ft...but I shot (regular) bows at 40ft.

Hahaha I LOVE target sports. I wish there was some place that could teach people how to throw knives. =D

I have so throwing knives, I just practice in the backyard! But I have park in back of my yard so theres less chance of me hurting someone!! haha! I Think thats so cool that you've done archery!! I really want to try!!

GunslingersAura Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
wow. I AM SO JEALOUSSSS!rawrargh :tantrum: where did you get the throwing knives? (and just for clarification, these are legit knives, not some shuriken or whatever, right?)
Archery is awesome, but just like riflery, you have to build up your arms if you want to have good aim.
