No combination of two items has ever created more feelings of ire or joy than newborn canines and bitchin firearms. This is precisely why we chose to bring you Puppies With Guns. Whether you see the joining of these things as disgusting or amazing, you cannot ignore PWG. This project brings two of the greatest things on earth; firearms and puppies.
“Initially the project started when I was working in Atlanta. About four years ago, a roommate of mine had a Yorkie and we thought it would be funny to take some photos of this really cute dog with a few handguns. Once my friends saw the photos they started asking me to take pictures of their dogs with other firearms. I moved back to Vermont, where I’m from, and it kept going on like this, and the series has been slowly growing. People see the photos and keep asking if I could take pictures of their puppies. As the series goes on, I’d like to start matching the dogs to firearms that match their personality or heritage. People really seem to like it; most people that I talk to think that it is hilarious. There have been a few people that have negative things to say, but with anything there are going to be people that don’t like it. The haters are the best, the reactions I get from completely irrational people are the most amusing part of the project.Photos from kickstarter for Puppies with Guns calendar.
