This strikes me as so odd and strange. Certainly this is a cozy with irony. Well constructed and totally appropriate for the shape.

Having said that, I would be arrested for carrying that thing around (thank God... IMHO) and Aussies are apathetic towards most things (especially overt patriotism) so this cover would totally not work here even if it cosied something less illegal!

It's an interesting cultural insight for a non-American.

Also, are there implications for the effectiveness of the fabric saying 'America' when it's a huge continent (or two) and I guess guns aren't legal in the whole area?

I want one for my gun.  Grin

You should sell on etsy.  Wink Or is that stuff not allowed there? I don't know the rules.

I go to the range as well ... (I don't hunt ... just like to shoot fake targets for stress relief). But, oh, the interest this would spark! You have to come back and let us know what the response was. Or did you already do that, and I missed it somewhere in these 8 pages?

I'd like to know how it went over at the range, as well! Smiley

as someone who comes from a fairly anti-gun (ok, anti-the-public-having-guns) country, this is both alarming and fricking hillarious.

My thoughts exactly.

This is so well constructed and designed, but as a Brit my first thoughts were 'OMG that's a gun!' Cheesy

Haha... adorable and hilarious. I am simultaneously amazed by guns and afraid of them, so it's nice to admire this from afar.

Absolutely terrifying to me I'm afraid (here in London it wouldn't go down well) but fabric from a "reuse-recycle area" at the dump sounds truly brilliant - wish we had that here.
