Default New Smith ware

Just thought i'd show off my new wardrobe. Seen it and decided i just had to have it. I guess it could be used as a warning.

No, you can't have my 9mm factory Shield barrel.

My honest opinion I wouldn't wear that shirt on a bet.

I might wear that to the shooting range but otherwise no.
Too provocative and makes shooters look like the media portrays us.

I get it, but I don't wear T-shirts like that simply because I don't advertise that I might be carrying a gun or have any in my home. If you want to find out then you will work for it but you wont be able to tell anyone afterwards.

I saw a girl a while back wearing a T-shirt that said "I Fear No Po-Po!" Sure made a favorable impression on me...

I guess I just don't understand the need to be deliberately provocative. No doubt a deficiency of character on my part.

This is akin to young ladies wearing butt shorts/daisy dukes with wording on the rear. It only draws attention to their butt, normally by useless perverts.

The center mass shots need to be tighter.

Cute - but I am more low keyed - no need to advertise as there are no advantages. Would make a good wall hangar in the gun room though.........

I really haven't seen anyone on this thread tell anybody what to wear. I've seen people, including me, saying they wouldn't wear it, and why they wouldn't. Feel free to do as you please, but it ain't my cup of tea.

I like such things but don't wear them either for the attention they bring. I have a sign in the garage that says we don't call 911 and a picture of a revolver my buddy gave me but don't put that in the window either.
Maybe I'm too timid but also don't want to tip my hand over such things either.
Should I see you somewhere wearing that shirt I'll certainly grin and maybe make a positive comment in your direction too.

If it comes with a breast pocket I'd wear it. It's funny in an age when body piercings sen to be the happening thing.

I'd wear it at my hunt club where it would be appreciated by like minded people.

Very cool shirt but I don't think it'd be a good idea to wear that out in public lest you attract the wrong kind of attention. I have even pretty much stopped wearing my NRA ball cap because I wore it on our Hawaiian cruise and a lady started really giving me a hard time. Kept calling me a gunslinger and a punk.

Her husband just stood back a smiled at me. He was a big ol' boy and I was reluctant to sass her back but I finally returned his gaze with a look that said: "if you don't shut her up I will." I finally got the impression that he WANTED me to say something back.

On the third day of her harassment I wasn't even wearing it any more and she started on me again. I finally turned on her and asked her what her problem was. She told me in no uncertain terms. I lost it. I told her that if she would do something about her hair, go see a good dentist and lose 75 pounds she would not have time to be pestering patriotic Americans in pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

After 3 days of her on my case and me not saying anything back she was not prepared and I thought she was going to swallow her tongue. Her husband (to my surprise and delight) had to turn around to keep her from seeing him laugh. I figured that they had been married about 15 or 20 years and he'd had a steady dose of her mouth. Probably never said anything back to her or heard anyone else say anything back to her.

A couple of days later we were off the ship on an excursion tour and we ran into them again. She apologized to me and asked if we could start over. We introduced ourselves and I even got a pic of her wearing my NRA hat. I don't think I should post it here for obvious reasons.

So I turned a hater into a friend. I doubt she ran out and bought a gun when she got home but as least she was smiling at me now instead of chewin' me out and callin' me names.

Any photos of this hazard/phenomenon? I need to be able to recognize the useless perverts that have their gaze drawn to such...just so I can avoid them.

In my younger days, I was a useful pervert. As for writing placed there - I can't think of any other reason for writing on the butt except to draw (additional) attention to it.

I think it's pretty funny, but there is a lot of people out there that won't like it.
