What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Horsing Around Edition

Oleg Volk may well be the web’s best gun pornographer—although our Jeffrey Lynch knows how to make a gun look more desirable than Keely Hazell. As you might expect for an art gun photog guy, Oleg occasionally sacrifices the tactical for the magical. Tsk. Tsk.

    Oleg Volk has superhero superpowers. Fortunately, he chooses to use them for good and not for evil. For which we are all so very thankful.

    I can’t think of anything more tragic than if that gun were to accidentally fire.

    1. avatar "lee n. field" says:

      It looks like that Savage has a grip safety.

      1. avatar Oleg Volk says:

        Grip safety. Manual safety. Empty chamber. And it’s between two layers of stiff fabric acting as a holster. But feel free to nitpick.

          Have you ever ridden a horse while carrying a gun? That’s about as far from the recommended procedure as you can get without putting a J-frame under your hat. Just sayin’…

        2. avatar CarlosT says:

          Speaking of J-Frames, I once met a guy who Mexican carried one with a 2.5lb trigger, no holster, just a little clip that was built into the grip. Yeah, nothing could possibly go wrong with that….

          At least he wasn’t on a horse at the time.

          I hat carry all the time. That’s why my hair has a permanent part.

          How’s your hearing these days?

        5. avatar Tinkerbell says:

          I have indeed ridden a horse with a gun, now granted I might not carry the gun as I am in the picture, but hey art is art right? lol

        6. avatar Gerard says:

          This is the internet. Of course we will nitpick.

  3. avatar Mr. Lion says:

    What could go wrong? Well, one of those buckles might get stuck closed…

    1. That would truly be a tragedy.

  4. avatar CarlosT says:

    Holsters are (relatively) cheap people! Seriously, get a little clip on or something and you’re good to go!

    She’s hot now, but she wouldn’t be as hot after she’s bled out. And if you think so, you’re pretty sick.

  5. avatar Aharon says:

    If she doesn’t want to clean her gun I will be happy to do it for her.

  6. avatar Greg in Allston says:

    Lighten up guys, the whole gunnie PC things gets a little much sometimes. In this case Oleg is making ART (I know it when I see it) or some such thing, he’s not doing illustrations for a CC instruction manual.

    1. avatar Double A.D. says:

      +1000! C’mon people! This is just getting ridiculous.

  7. avatar Twinkie says:

    Oleg, I like your art but I don’t really like the handgun you picked for this composition. I plunged into your archives (um..) and enjoyed your other compositions more. I guess it’s just that I don’t really like tiny guns.

  8. avatar Gerard says:

    I refuse to admit to searching through Oelg’s website for the nudes.

    1. avatar Oleg Volk says:

      You wouldn’t find much without logging in.

      1. avatar Gerard says:

        Does that mean I can get a login?

  9. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

    I first saw Oleg’s work on this site and now I visit his site everyday. He’s very talented and has some real hotties.

  10. avatar garynyer says:

    i actually saw some of his steam punk photos first and then found out he was also an awesome firearms photographer, so win-win?

  11. avatar Tom says:

    Oldest Daughter rides and trains horses. Things can get very interesting very fast on a green horse. The helmets are not for show. I think for her line of riding, the guns may not be the best idea.

  12. avatar Chris Dumm says:

    Wasn’t she an extra on Firefly?

    1. avatar Tinkerbell says:

      I wasn’t though I have done extras work before. lol

  13. avatar Jeff Lynch says:

    It is a wonderful portrait and Oleg is a well respected firearms photographer. Mixing the two together (girls & guns) doesn’t make it “gun porn”, just good marketing. The auto industry did the same with muscle cars back in the 60’s and early 70’s and many companies do the same to this day (razor blades, deodorant, etc.).

    As for gun safety in the studio and on location, I’m pretty sure Oleg’s business insurance carrier has the same rules as mine; negligent discharge of a firearm during a photo shoot is not covered at all. Which is why the firearms I photograph are never loaded with “live” ammo during the session. Dummy rounds are cheap. Lawsuits are expensive!
