I love God, guns, Old Glory and America -- and grits too


While I'm bragging on my gun photos, here's another one I really like.

It's a high-bright stainless Colt National Match Royal Stainless Gold Cup 1911 .45 and reflected on the bright polished stainless slide are two stars from the American flag we use in the gun shop for a backdrop on our gunbroker auctions.

If a Colt 1911 .45 and a couple of stars reflected from Old Glory don't make you want to stand up proud and say out loud "Thank God for America!" .... well then just sit down and shut the H--- up.

We started using the flag for a backdrop some time back out of patriotism. Plus the red, white and blue colors give you an excellent color register to indicate whether a photo has off-register colors. We don't have studio lights, just regular bulbs and florescent lighting, so sometimes we get color shifts.

But would you believe we have had complaints about using the flag to show off our guns? If you're one of those who gets your panties in a wad about guns and the flag, well, as I already said, just siddown and shaddup! I love God, guns, Old Glory and America -- and grits, too. And if you don't like it, you can kiss my grits.

What on earth were the complaints about? I like it...

A grand total of two idiots thought it disgraceful to use Old Glory as a backdrop while displaying guns for sale. We semi-politely told both we didn't want their money and they should take it elsewhere, along with their comments.

Huh, I was given a rifle identical to the one in the second photo for my 17th birthday.
