While I'm not sure if I am entirely to blame for the growing number of gunbronies on the internetz, I am more than willing to take the blame for being Patient Zero. However, I do need to claim responsibility for at least a few points of infection.
Because I wanted him to make me an MLP-themed holster to go along with my spiffy new Glock 26, Evyl Robot Michael (aka Mr. In Jennifer's Head) decided that he should watch a few episodes to see what all the fuss was about and possibly get a better idea of what I wanted. Since this coincided with Jennifer's enforced downtime due to back-fuckery, they both decided it would be a good idea to give it a try. Just the pilot episode, you see.
The next thing I hear, they've finished episode 10 and are about to watch one of the greatest earworm episodes ever made, Winter Wrap-Up. At that point I know it's just a matter of time before they're one of us, one of us, one of us.
As of this writing, they've just finished episode 16 of season 2, and both have declared that "Rainbow Dash is Best Pony." My work here is done.
Speaking of work, here are pictures of the absolutely beautiful custom holster I was talking about a few paragraphs ago:
(A larger picture of "Luna with twin TAR21s" may be found here.)
EDIT: a review of this holster may be found here.
Moving on, I see that in the wake of his visit to Daytona, McThag has seen some episodes of MLP as well and has realized that not only do guns and pones go together like peanut butter and chocolate, they also make for really fantastic/terrible visual puns such as:
If you're confused, non-gunnie bronies, go here for an explanation. You may also see a prototype of the finished design here.
Finally, I am working on converting Bear to the pony side of the Force. I'm already partially there because, of his own accord, he decided to post this picture:
|The Glambo Signature Series "My Little Pony" M4A1|
I would like to point out that
- I find those colors hideous, and
- I would buy one anyway, just for the conniptions it would cause among purists and gun-banners alike.
So by my count, that's 3 converts and one proto-convert (and I'll be sending him a DVD of choice episodes later on). Go on, hate me if you must: your opprobrium only makes me stronger.
