Full Metal Coloring A Book of Down Range Reflection is being promoted as an “Adult Coloring Book for Veterans & Hunters.” Yes, well, you and I know that The People of the Gun are going to set this bad boy down in front of their young ‘uns. And so they should! Culture eats strategy for lunch.
At the risk of being labelled a “gun fetishist” — that’s Mr. Gun Fetishist to you Shannon Watts — Full Metal Coloring is a welcome step beyond “gun normalization” (as practiced by open carry). It’s a celebration! Which is even better.
To celebrate good times (‘cmon!) TTAG will give a free Armed Response training video of your choice to the best coloring from Full Metal Coloring. (The image must to be from a template other than one of those in this post!) Send a jpeg to firstname.lastname@example.org with COLORING (all caps) in the subject bar. Deadline September 1.
