Behind The Scenes At Tactical Distributors’ Calendar Photo Shoot

As RF acknowledged a few weeks back, one of the things we identified in our latest reader survey is the Armed Intelligentsia’s distaste for cheesecake. Not the raspberry lemon swirl variety. No, we mean scantily clad models, many of whom hail from foreign lands. So being the responsive publishers we are, we’ve cut back on the leggy blond linkage. But here’s the weird thing: it seems that – against all odds – sex still sells. Which probably explains why just posted a mini-documetary chronicling their 2014 calendar shoot. And yes, we’re horrified, too. Really.

    The sight of chick butt in short shorts proned out behind a rifle will never get old.


    Not even a little bit.

    1. avatar Ron Burgundy says:

      Cocked and locked, I guess we can say…

    2. avatar JeffR says:

      It’s all about that little jiggle.

    3. avatar Denny says:

      Can I hold that tushy for 5 min please? Pants on even! Oh my..

  2. avatar Arod529 says:

    Oh look, models, some of the preppiest people on earth. Still braver than the anti gun pussies.

  3. avatar Tony says:

    I keep getting older……. They stay the same age

  4. avatar LongPurple says:

    It was a real challenge getting a freeze of the young lady almost in the girdle(?) at 0:18, but it was worth it.

    1. avatar Guss says:

      10-4 on the flash at 18 seconds.

  5. avatar frankgon4 says:

    So how much is it to make one of these calendars?

  6. avatar SkyMan77 says:

    My first thought was nice rifle… Now I know I’ve been working too hard…

    No sweetie, that rifle doesn’t make your butt look big… 🙂

  7. avatar C says:

    But Dan, my delicate sensibilities!

  8. avatar Daniel Silverman says:

    Oh the horror the horror!!! Oh who are we kidding lol

  9. avatar LongPurple says:

    Don’t you just love the way recoil creates jiggles? Never let a well-endowed woman shoot anything smaller than .30 caliber.

    1. avatar ready,fire,aim says:

      the :25 sec part did it for me….. (to my wife) honey can you come in here for a second 🙂

  10. avatar Jay1987 says:

    I for one liked the scantily clad maiden pictures and i agree with Matt there is nothing hotter than a cute girl in skimpy clothes with a gun… nothing not even that one picture of that one girl doing that thing you love

  11. avatar Cliff H says:

    Can’t imagine who was protesting so much. Seems to me since most of the time it was just a superfluous link anyone who was opposed simply could ignore the link and move on with the rest of the post. I found the oblique references generally amusing.

    Oh well, it’s not like we can’t get R-rated pics anywhere else.

  12. avatar Frank Masotti says:

    Beautiful women and guns while very sexy and a turn on, it does not make me want to buy that particular firearm or part and so on.

  13. avatar Bruce L. says:

    (slap Dan on the back of the head) Shame on you! (but grins while doing it)

  14. avatar Jon says:

    If you need these trashy girls to sell your products then they probably aren’t very good !!!

  15. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Ya know, after watching that video 147 times, I’m offended. There weren’t any guns in that video…

    1. avatar Anonymous for Self Explanatory Reasons says:

      +1 😉

  16. avatar Salvatore says:

    I wonder if Chris Costa misses his Magpul days. Probably not.

  17. avatar Loaded Diaper says:

    This is why I married a stripper (X-stripper these days) and taught her to shoot! She’s still a democrat (for now) But, at least she supports the 2nd amendment and the black rifles now!

  18. avatar Mina says:

    Where’s that jerk who was cat calling the pretty girl who won the last photo contest for being “too fat”? (yah, he’s a NUT JOB!!!)

    I’m sure he’ll have some scintillating reasons why these girls’ thighs are too jiggly or their abs are not flat enough.

    He’s a malcontent. For sure. It’s just never good enough for some people, you ever notice that?

  19. avatar Joseph says:

    The only thing worse than seeing this garbage on TTAG would be to have been at the actual filming of these half naked beautiful women running around like that. I wish I were a camera man…really I do. Oh the shame of it all….

  20. avatar DaveM says:

    I hit exit at 52 seconds when light dawned that wasn’t gonna happen in my life
    Will keep watching only for research purposes

  21. avatar Mark Davis says:

    too bad those chicks have pointy elbows… (sarc)

  22. avatar Steve says:

    One more reason to buy a Barrett!

    Not that I really needed one…

  23. avatar Nicks87 says:

    OH, my word…

    Must… give… money… to… tactical distributors!

  24. avatar IdahoPete says:

    I am shocked! shocked! to see that a business would use attractive women to sell their products!

    Sort of like watching the major network news – you don’t see a lot of OFWW on those liberal propaganda productions, do you?

  25. avatar Fug says:

    That just looked like a bunch of strippers playing mall ninja. I prefer the Nill Griffe 2011 calendar. The Nill calendar has a tastefully nude woman posing with their various hand-made walnut grips on different guns.

    Please note that there are a LADY’S NIPPLES and WALNUT GRIPS through that link, be careful.

    Also note that it is low-res and the calendar seems to still be for sale in their shop, but I would try and confirm that in some way before getting my hopes up. Who ever thought I would be so keen to pay almost forty dollars for an old calendar?

  26. avatar Martin B says:

    There’s a fat chick in there somewhere (and no, I don’t lovingly slow mo to find the exact spot) doing makeup or something. I bet she would be a much better shooter than all the little princesses here, as more mass equals better recoil absorption. OFWGs shoot pretty well too…

  27. avatar Kelly in GA says:

    “Behind the Scenes,” eh, Dan? Well played sir.
