What the fuck are people thinking when shooting a photo shoot?

Link Posted: 3/9/2010 9:10:51 AM EDT
What, the rear sight? No big deal... not like it's the magazine in backwards or something.

You know who takes those pictures? He's most definitely a "gun" guy.

He may be talking about them fucking up her name

I guess I missed it. It's a bullpup rifle, she has both hearing and eye protection..

I know, right?

Who forgets to move their thumb out of the way?

Anytime they do a 'firearms' shoot they should pay for a technical advisor. Just so it doesn't look like a humongous cluster *&^%.

No rear BUIS and she's wearing ear pro when she's running a can....

That's a Oleg Volk photo by the way.

That is a front MBUS, and what's wrong with ear protection + can? They're not cat-sneeze quiet you know...

The aimpoint mount is backwards..it is still functional, I know...but it reminded me of:



and




I really wouldn't expect much from Kel-tec to be honest....it's not like a perfect HK catalog.

Dont need a rear buis. You use the aimpoint as a big ghost ring.

That was my thought on it as well... BIIIIG ghost ring..

+1

I think the BUIS thing is more of a ARFCOM commandment than a "true sign of the operator."

The second picture really surprises me. I expect that stuff from a movie but that picture looks like someone is at work; you would think that someone whose job involves firearms would have at least tried to use the optic; or a colleague, or something.

Cheek weld is the only thing that's really missing.

If I'm wrong... Why is there a flip up on that rifle???.

It is a photo for an ad.....get over it.

1. The name is not spelled wrong.
2. The USMC doesn't run BUIS behind their mounted optics.
3. Oleg Volk doesn't need a "techinical advisor."

Spray and pray Baby! It'd be nice if she were actually looking through the sight ?

You are trespassing on hallowed ground, Slug-O

Oleg Volk and someone close to ARFCOM favorite girl, Annatrocity...if it was the HK catalog photo or a picture of a cop with a mag inserted backwards it would be a totally different response.

As old as I'm getting it probably will not be the last time...

Google " OLEG VOLK" look at all his photo albums for free, think about the experience you just had, come back and say you are sorry.

It is more of a Kel-tec issue than Oleg, wouldn't you say? They are selling a gun, not him.

Shouldn't he google up Keltec?

Any oleg volk photo that features both women and firearms always looks very creepy to my eyes. The one in the OP is not that bad but look at some of his other work and I bet you'll be creeped out.

Then don't ever look up AnnaT's haunted house thread...
(i like most of Oleg's work btw, just a matter of personal taste i guess)

If she is shooting indoors, the hearing pro is a good idea. I once fires a SBR with a can indoors and it still made my ears ring, I can only imagine what a .308 would sound like.
