She's beautiful! Cute smile and beautiful intelligent looking eyes. Fantastic abs and a shirt with a great message. I like her jeans the most. The detail in the rips and tears are amazing. She's an angel of Freedom!
Nice pic, and the drawing of the M1 carbine's great. Contrary to popular belief, the .30 Carbine is not underpowered as it seems. It was built like a pistol round chambered for a rifle. Against body armor, it sucks, but against human flesh with no or little body armor, it can take a man down at 100 to 150 yards if the shooter does their part (as in shoot and connect with center of mass). The best comparison in combat effectiveness would be that the M1 is the equivalent of a lever-action rifle chambered for a .45 LC or .357 Magnum round.
The M1 Carbine is THE DEFINITION of a carbine. It was useless at ranges EXCEEDING 175m/200y, but WOW could it keep heads down! Also note that five WW2 Medal of Honor recipients earned that medal with an M1 CARBINE IN THEIR HANDS!
and couldn't hit nothing over 100-200 yards. i'm not a Nazi fan (nut cases with money and power gone to their minds)I take pride in my k98 karbine. if my eyes weren't shit i'd be able to hit past 300 yards with it
Huh, found this lookin up "Don't Tread On Me" nice, I'm usually creeped out by uh "Furry" stuff. Yea, I got a Gadsden flag here in my room. And very nice choice of arms, love the M1 Carbine... (@ satwarsisme) I still got my grandfather's Calvary Carbine Carcano (6.5mm)...
Wonderful piece. Inspiring, too. I love how you chose to arm her with an M1 Carbine. Here in the south, that's just the kind of thing we'd end up using. :-P Everyone has either the M1 Garand or a few Carbines here and there, some Mausers, mostly German or Yugoslavian, and then a healthy supply of AK-47s, AK-74s, and a bagillion AR-15s with an AR-10 here and there.
For whatever reason, my first love is still the Romanian PSL "Dragunov." So nice. Gotta love the 54R.
So, I'm guessing either you or the character are one of those Right-wing, God fearing, gun owning, single-issue voting nutjobs that the DHS warned us about. 'Bout time we got some more conservative furries in this world, instead of . . . well, you know.
Very well done sir, with fantastic perorations and great accuracy on the M1 carbine. The subject's clothing does seem a bit too revealing (though I freely admit that that opinion is most likely the result of the climate I live in being so inconsistently cold), but otherwise it's a very tame picture. A great job all around: a five, out of five.
I dig this image. It doesn't matter that she doesn't have an AK-47, and there's nothing wrong with wih being ready to give your life for liberty (It's better than giving your life to put something down, anyway: kamikaze, suicide bombers, &c). Long-Distance High-five! I dig the portrayal of how any sane person would pick up whatever weapon they had to defend their liberties.
Not as powerful as the Garand, no, but it's got plenty of power to take a human down. If not in one shot, than in three.
As carbines go it was pretty damn good - I think the reports of it having crappy power is mainly because US infantry at the time weren't trained nearly to the extent that they are now. Reacting and firing rapidly with an M1 carbine was more important than with the Garand, and at the time US soldiers were told to only fire if they were sure they could hit their mark (a very rare situation in combat), and fire once.
It was only until after the war ended that we realized how skewed the training was - 2/3rds of riflemen had never actually fired their weapons at an enemy soldier. Most combat took place at close range, which soldiers weren't trained for beyond hand-to-hand.
