Anyone have ideas for a pose with my AR-15 for my senior pics? I think I want a prone shot, because I like to shoot long distance national match. Does anyone have suggestions as to what I could do? Anyone have pics of themselves with rifles?

SENIOR pics!!! Well the only pose I think we will ever get to see is the one either with your head hung down with your arms behind your back and a very unfriendly State Trooper leading you where he wants you to go, OR The one with your head hung low in the back of a squad car pulling away. So How do you look in Orange. :) JK. [ROFL2]

Maybe something similar to this? [:)] [IMG]http://home.attbi.com/~savage308/wsb/media/159329/site1026.JPG[/IMG] Not a senior picture but it's close enough... Rifle is a Savage 10FLP chambered for .308WIN, Leupold Vari-X III 3.5-10x40mm LR M3, McMillan A5 tactical stock [:)]

Luke308, Man that has to be the best dressed Savage of all time! I had a 10FLP (yep I'm lefty too) that was a pig, wouldn't shoot MOA for nothing. Yeah, I know most everyone have good luck with the Savage FP/FLP, but I got a lemon. Tried everything from better base, rings, scope even stock without ever getting two MOA groups in a row from the bench. I "fixed it" by getting a full custom Rem 700 built by NorCal Precision. Awesome with the same scope, Mcmillan A4, kreiger barrel, etc. Your 'stick' looks good there! But a Senior pic should be standing with an AR15 (or other rifle) held to the chest and that gung-ho look! And for God sake don't be aiming at the camera.

Marksman, check with your Principal before putting any more work in to your idea. I recall a case where a young woman was some kind of SERIOUS competetive AR shooting... like, she was on the National team, or something... I mean, this was a young woman that was nationally ranked. OK, so she wants a picture in her yearbook of herself, and her championship trophy. I don't recall, maybe it was David Tubb, kissing her foot... but it had her AR in there, too. HOOO-EEEEE, what a rucus. The (ignorant) Principal said no way is a picture of a kid with an assault rifle going in the yearbook, the NRA gets involved, what a mess. So, unless your shooting is part of a school sanctioned club- I would suggest giving up on this idea. Now, you can use ignorance to your advantage- how about a nice picture of yourself at the reloading bench? Folks in the know will know, and the rest just won't get it. It's a politically correct world... and ya gotsta choose your battles. Good luck young fella! Mr. Stankey after you graduate, you can call me Pete

i thought about doing that in my senior pic too. but i dont want every kid in the the school to know what kind of guns i have. they wont even let me look at a gun magazine in my school so i dont think a pic of me holding my AR has a chance of getting in the year book. good luck, i hope your school lets you do it

BillSP1 - I've had great results with the Savage. Last trip to the range got me a .375, 3 shot group @ 100yds and that was with factory ammo and off the bipod. Not too shabby! [:)]

I would definatley get permission from the schools administrator first. I got in A LOT of trouble for reading the current issue in my SWAT magazine subscription once I finished taking a test. With all the PC bull shit going around these days, and most schools' "Zero Tollerance" shit, you could get yourself expelled. Nothing like repeating your final year of school. However, if it was allowed to be put into the year book, you should consider most peoples huge fear of weapons, especially, "evil black rifles". Most people would avoid you, your teachers would become suspicious of every thing you do, your social life would probably suffer, and all the kids would be calling to the next John Malvo behind your back. I hate to be a buzz kill, but this is my opinion. Good luck with whatever you do though.

I am a senior in high school next year and take it from me the worst that will happen is that they will refuse to put them in the year book. Then you may have a discrimnation case if they let people with "normal rifles" in their pictures in the book. They can't expell you for having a rifle in a picture taken off of school grounds.

Hey Luke308! GOt a question for you on that A5. Not hihacking the post but: 1. is the adjustable cheekpiece really necessarry with a low mounted scope and 2. Is the forend narrow enough that it would be comfortable to use with a sling and hand-stop while prone shooting (without a bipod)? Thinking of fitting one to a Remmy 700. Thanx!

Listen not to sound like a jerk, but I think having your picture taken with your AR sounds like a bad idea. This is my reasoning take it for what you will. I’m going to assume you’re around 17-18 years old right? Sometimes things seem like a good idea when your younger, I’m sure you can remember doing things say in Jr. High that you now look back on and say “wow that was dumb”. I don’t think that you are going to impress anyone with that pic, I think most will look at in two ways, one that it’s an evil black gun your holding and you must be a future killer (yes I know that this is false but you must remember the mind set of uneducated people) and you don’t need that crap with you, your entire senior year. The other is, it’s going to look (forgive me ) TRASHY , I can remember seeing some trashy looking senior pics in my day , i.e. Girls with beanie babies stacked around them, guys sitting on the hood of a piece of crap 94 escort with a giant NO FEAR or REDNECK sticker on the windshield and there NASCAR 96 tee shirt on . Trust me on this one, a few nice pictures of you in casual clothes , a few outside things of that nature are going to serve you much better in the long run . But hey that’s just my advise take it for what you will.

I would check with the powers that be first so all your effort isn't wasted. A pose like luke308 suggested would be good but rig it so you could see more of your face. I did my a big 'if you get less than a C you get held back' essay in 10th grade on the history of the M-16 and the only crap I got was from the other kids.

[hijack] sorry Luke HALFcocked - I hope you are kidding bout the KMA comment cuz. I will just assume you were [>:/] [hijack over] I was joking about that because when I was in school our senior pictures were taken in school. All of the schools in my area had the photographer come to the school on a dedicated day and we had our appointment and went and got them taken. Everyone wore the little gown thing and that was how we did it. No poses or outside backgrounds. That is how everyone I have ever seen in PA has had it done, You see now?? If we had our picture taken with an AR it would mean that we would have to bring them to school and if we did that we would go to jail because Super Intendants do not like rifles in school.

So you shoot national match. I have to say we need to overcome this paranoid mindset. In our eyes there is no difference between a guy on the golf team posing with his 9 iron, or an equestrian posing with their horse and you posing with your AR. We can't cowar behind public perception if we want things to change. That said. Just cause one of your Senior pics is you with an AR-15 doesn't mean that has to go in the yearbook (if the school allows it, that would be cool). I had about 4 different poses and backdrops for my Senior pics, and my friends picked out the one they liked. I'm sure your AR friends would love the one with the AR. I wish I would have thought of it (can I rewind 13 yrs please). Have fun and remember it will be the last time you see most of those morons! I would suggest a picture that has a very sporting feel to it. Like you at the range with your gear, maybe a target in the background. Something like that. Now you in full cammo pointing an AR at the camra with a fixed bayonet and a dead bloody chicken hanging off the end would not be a good portrayal. That would be negatory and I would have to jump ship and agree with the naysayers.[:D]

It is a damned shame that we shoters have to sneak around and wisper about our fully legal sport. Probably best to play it safe and get one photo with your rifle and one or more with you dressed as a conventional 'good boy' for the general chicken sh*& population. You ARE at a pivotal point in your life.

HC - Maybe you are talking about other posts cause I know you cannot think that I was discouraging him. I did not even know that anywhere people got their senior pictures taken outside of the school, No schools in my entire county do it that way so I assumed that first off he was joking -that due to the fact that I have never heard of any schools even doing that. So before you go spouting off at the mouth about me discouraging this and that you better make sure you know what you are talking about. My comment was purely based on 2 things 1.) it being a JOKE, funny ha ha, yeah I get jokes. 2.) given the fact that I have never seen a senior picture taken outside of school, enter #1 that is where the joke comes from. Get it now?? You got your sling wrapped to tight buddy because there is no reason for you to be acting like a Tool. Everything was nice and civilized until you came in. I dont attack anyone and I dont expect to be attacked unless I provoke it and in this case I did not so PISS OFF

Now you go walking up to the principal and he ok's it and they put it in the yearbook. Now every body in that school is going to know what kind of guns you are capable of getting and know what kind of guns you have. Your teachers will be all paranoid around you.

Mudzilla, I'm afraid I'm going to disagree with you and if you read my previous post you will know why and my age. The context of the Senior picture could be very positive or negative depending on how it is taken, and if he treats it like any other sport it will not have a Rambo psyhco killer tone. The picture would be very positive if it is taken in the same context as a soccer player with his ball, a motocrosser with is dirtbike, or a chess player with his chessboard (snicker, snicker). Whether it gets in the yearbook or whether he even wants this particular picture in the yearbook is another story. If he lives in a conservative area and the school allows it I think it would be pretty cool (but probably unlikely that it will be allowed). Anyway the pic can be one of the choices he can give to friends who probably all know that he shoots competitively anyway. I think it's okay to know what kind of guns normal people can get and what kind of fun and challenging sports involve marksmanship. And as for the staring and paranoia, I say who cares! How much longer is he going to have to put up with those people anyway 3 months? Hey if the Gays can come out of the closet and put up with the crap than why can a flipping gun owner and competitive shooter. Edited to add: Amen IronB!
Link Posted: 7/31/2003 11:16:01 PM EDT
Folks, I think many of you are completely over-reacting to this simple issue. 1. He doesn't have to have this picture put in a yearbook. He will have numerous poses to choose from and he can order as many different poses as he chooses. He can give the school, the typical suit and tie pic if he chooses and give his AR pose to his family and friends. 2. Why are so many assuming he will be on school grounds with the rifle? Damn, there are thousands of businesses that take senior pictures. He doesn't have to go with the school's choice, he can choose his own. I did. And many will be willing to come to you, so he can have em taken on his property or at the range if he so desires. 3. I am shocked that so many of "our own" seem just as hysterical as the anti's about guns. If you feel having a picture taken of you with an AR is too un-PC, sell your guns, move to San Francisco, put a flower in your hair and become a hippie dope smoker! Geez! What's wrong with some of you?!!! 4. It sounds as if he just wants something to share with friends and family to remember his school years by. Some have basketball, football, tennis, soccer, chess, cheerleading, golf, etc. This guy happens to love shooting. So what is wrong if he has his picture taken with his rifle? Good grief! 5. If he wants to do this, he has the ability to control how it is handled. He can have as many pictures as he wants with the poses he wants. He can choose the location most suitable to him. He can give the pics to whomever wants them or carefully choose who gets them. Basically, he can do this in a manner that would be no different than you or having a snapshot taken of us holding a rifle. There is not a speck of difference. He has total control of what's in the pic, where he chooses to have them taken, who takes them and who gets them and who doesn't. Just like any other picture! It is obvious that this senior likes guns just as other people like other hobbies. There is nothing wrong with being proud of your hobby or sport. This teen is proud of who he is and the shooting sport he loves and therefore has ever right to have a picture to remember his youth and hobby by as any other teen in America. He isn't some kind of gang-banger criminal for God sake! Instead of being critical you should be supporting a fellow shooter. There is nothing, nothing wrong with what he is doing and properly approached will not get him in any trouble. So I say to Marksman762, keep searching until you find your ideal pose and then do what will make you happy. If the picture could cause you trouble then use the proper methods to avoid such trouble. But you are a free person and if having a picture of a rifle is what you want, then by all means get one. You can do this completely independently of the school and what you do in private is of no concern to the school system. Like I have told some of these other posters here, such a picture is no different than any other picture with the exception of your name and graduating year added to it. So look around and find a business that will accomodate you outside of school if need be. Oh, and good luck and have a great senior year!

Re-read your own post and think hard and answer the question "what in hell am I saying?". Just turned 48. Old enough to know better. The most expensive piece of clothing in my wardrobe is my Creedmore, hard back shooting coat. The hobby I enjoy the most, spend the most time and money on, and dream of attaining high achievements, is High Power Rifle Match Shooting. I'm thinking a nice standing or feet on the ground on a tall stool in my blue Cordura shooting coat with my Kowa spotting scope on one side, MR1 for a back ground (20 holes in the X), and my Kreiger Stainless barreled AR-15, butt on the floor, resting against my left leg. Actually I think I would use my Garand. Not because it is a more "PC" rifle, but because it would demonstrate a higher level of achievement if one would attain those dreamed of goals with one. Of course I'ld have my Presidents 100 pin, Distinguished Riflemans patch and High Master card (if I had any of that stuff) prominently displayed. I think it would be a very tasteful picture, one that I would be proud of. You goobers and gomers, that the first thing you think of is a bare chested man with black pajama bottoms and a black bandana around his head, M60 in his right hand with a never ending belt streaming behind, nuclear tipped arrows with black camo bow in his left, meat cleaver clenched between his grimacing teeth...

HalfCocked- Here comes the splainin OK as you see above, And in my other posts, All of the schools in my area have their senior pics taken IN SCHOOL. That being said, I assumed, (Yes assumed) that all schools were like that as I had never seen any other yearbooks or senior pics that were different poses backgrounds etc. OK With me so far? So With the above assumed, If that were the case as it was in my mind, In order for him to have his picture taken with his rifle he would have to bring his AR or whatever weapon he was thinking about IN TO SCHOOL. Now I dont know if where you are are from they let you have guns in school, but I know here on the east coast, they call the police, have you arrested and you are on the news, being led to the squad car with a headline below you. Now if you ever get a chance to watch the news you would probably have seen this type orf story. (did you see the kids in Camden, NJ that were arrrested before they could shoot all of those people?) They had a story and the footage usually shown is the kid being led away to the squad car with their head hung down trying to avoid the camera. Now still with me? OK having seen that and assuming that his school was like the majority of the schools here, that is what he would have looked like if he had his picture taken with his AR. (get it? He would have been arrested if things were the same.) Now with ALL of that having been said, IT WAS A JOKE TO BEGIN WITH! notice the JK at teh end on the post. That mean s Just Kidding. So as you can see, I was not discouraging his from doing anything or expressing his views, showing support for our shooting sports, or just showing off that he is a Marksman with an AR-15. None of that was stated, implied or joked about. I think you took what I said and assumed it was on the same lines as what other people were conveying. That sound about right? Now are we on the same page yet? I am not being a smart ass I am just trying to make you understand. I thought you would have understood it after my last 2 posts, but you seem a little hot under the collar on this subject so it may cloud your thoughts on it. edited to add: Halfcocked- Now this is obviously somtehing that you are really passionate about and am not here for a pissingcontest or a [flame] fest.

It's sad how many democrat sell out pussies are on this thread. I can't believe I'm listening to people suggesting that he attempt to get permission or that he should not bother with it because it's too much trouble. I'm so glad America's freedom wasn't too much trouble for the founders of this country who fought against their own government, most of whom suffered severe financial ruin and some even death for their beliefs. Anyone who thinks he needs "permission" obviously doesn't believe in the constitution, as that is all the damn permission he needs. Who gives a sh*t what his left wing jellyback principal thinks about his yearbook picture, there is a bigger freedom issue here. Bottom line is this country is supposed to be a free country with free speech, free press, and right to keep and bear arms. Yet it's just "too much work" for some people to bother being inconvenienced to stand up and enforce freedom. This is why Washington DC has taxation without representation, why we have an assault weapons ban in the first place, and why this country is winding up for a rapid transformation into socialism. As far as I'm concerned, one has no business bitching about their big-issue 2nd amendment rights if they are not willing to spend time, effort, and money at defending the smaller freedoms this country is slowly taking away. It would surprise me if more than half the people in this thread even vote.

I feel it is time to step in here and clear a few things up. [:D] First of all, my pics are done. They took place OFF OF SCHOOL GROUNDS. We do not have in-school pics and I was unaware that anyone did. We just choose the pic we like the best and send it in for the yearbook. Next, I did take a few with my rifle. A couple indoors and a couple outside. The indoor ones turned out crappy, but the outdoor ones rocked! I took them in a field at our airport(I have solo license and took pics with a C-172). I had my spotting scope, an empty 20 round mag, and my shooting mat. I just did a pose like what was posed above. I doubt I will send in a rifle pic for the yearbook but everyone at my school knows I'm a gun nut and 95% of them are cool with it. Well that's about it, anymore questions feel free to ask. -Marksman

I'm a husband, father of 2, Electrical Engineer that manages 25 people and a semi-accomplished High Power shooter, in that order. 6. See previous answer. 7. It's never over until everybody sees things my way. [:D]

No stigma here, but thanks for the B.O.D. [beer] I do not hide or cover my interest in firearms at all. I am in an executive office for a Pharmaceutical company with the Pres, VP, me and others, and I have little plastic guns, 12" GIJOE with a Rocket launcher and well grouped targets in my office, so the being stigmatized and be ashamed part certainly does not pertain to me. Marksman - Glad to hear you got them done and did not pay any attention to the senseless rambling that has been going on here. I appologize for the hijaking of your post, I know you did not ask for opinions about the practice of getting them done you just asked " WHAT F_ING POSE WOULD LOOK NICE OR COOL" Not what ended up being the focus of the post. Show us some pics of what you think are the best ones so this all was at least no in vane.

Marksman762, I'm glad to hear you got your pictures taken....the way you wanted them. When you get them back feel free to post one here if you wish and show off your rifle. Once again, have a great year...because your senior year will be a very special time filled with lots of memories. Good luck! -Charging Handle

Nobody would be questioning it if the individual was headed into the military after graduation.
