As regular readers know, I like to build stuff (particularly guns). They also should know (if they were paying attention) that I’m going to be machining my own AR15 lower receivers. See, when you buy a gun, the receiver is usually marked with some sort of logo or brand name and a serial number (all my machined lowers will be numbered SU000X). I need some line art to put on them. So, dear reader, I need a good logo. Any reader is allowed submit one or more suggestions for line art in an image format.
The rules (such as they are):
Submit as many as you like via email to saysuncle at yahoo dot com (or post them on your blog, if you have one). They must be in JPG or GIF format.
All images must be line art (i.e., can be reproduced using only lines).
Images should be monochromatic (i.e., black and white).
Judging will be entirely based on my preference (though I’m not opposed to the idea of a reader poll to determine winners). I’m probably going to do three lowers at first so I may have first through third place prizes unless I really like one in particular.
And the prize(s) will be something gun related. Either something from the existing SayUncle stockpile of mags, scopes and other goodies. Or a $30 gift card to a fine gun oriented website like Midway, Tapco, Ammoman, MWG, or even Amazon for you non-gun types. Also, a gratuitous plug on the blog. And, of course, the satisfaction that your creation will be immortalized on an assault weapon.
Update: At Countertop’s suggestion, if a receiver is available, that could also be a substitute prize. But a bit of a warning:
Me and my build partner each want three lowers. We got eight on the assumption we’d screw two of them up. Should all lowers make it, the winner may get one. The difficulty would be getting a FFL dealer to transfer and whether or not it’s legal in the winner’s state of residence. Here at SayUncle, we do not violate gun laws. As such, a lower could be a potential prize but don’t be disappointed if, legally, that can’t happen.
Update 2: Oh yeah, submissions should be received by June 30, 2005
