Their first mistake...hiring an ad company based in NY

....I bet someone got fired for this and probably a major refund (if not more due to "damages").

Thanks for the history on it, one thing I always wondered was, did whom ever loaded the mag do that on purpose or were they really that stupid?

I would almost bet it was some anti gun person on the ad team and they thought they could get away with it.

Never, never underestimate the "stupid factor" in the general population!

That is funny. I would think if you are placing that on the cover the individual doing the drawing would know firearms. Thanks for sharing and a good laugh!
