A work of art

I was talking to my friend the bouncer about weapons. He watched Lord of War last night and is today entertaining delusions of grandeur by wanting to become an arms dealer. Funny guy. But talk turned to various arms, and he mentioned that he'd love to get a shotgun to open doors with 'cause he's always losing his keys. One thing led to another and we discussed various firearms that we liked.

I've had some experience with various military firearms, due to my time in the Australian Army Reserves, and I had the opportunity to learn a lot about military firearms. What I learnt was that they kill. Very efficiently. This method of killing was something that turned me off wanting to join the regular army, as I learnt that I didn't want to kill or be killed. I would if I had to, but I didn't want to choose to. But during my learnings, I discovered that I appreciated the artistic beauty of military firearms.

How can they be beautiful, I hear you ask? They're weapons of death!

Certainly. But have a look at this.

Is that not a beautiful work of art?

That sure is pretty! I want to see more! There are some beautiful weapons out there and the damage they cause can also be considered a beautiful form of abstract art. Seeing how you can't put a price on human life these works of art will instantly become 'priceless'.

If you want to buy weapons then keep watching as I might go into business selling them myself (as soon as I work out how).

I hate violence... (I can't find a way to finish that sentence).

Anyway, let's see some more pretty pictures!!!

hi short man, thanks for commenting. I can't agree that the result of using such weapons is a work of art, but I'm sure some would - especially you! However, there are sites you can go for that, none of which I'm going to link to from here.

I won't be doing a 'firearm of the week' or whatever, as there's very few firearms I find artistic. You could do that on your own website though. :-)

Beauty of form can exist independently of function, If someone was beaten to death with the monalisa, would that make it less appealing?
