AMAZING!! Goes to show you they didn't hire the "gun dudes" when selecting a marketing team to create the cover shot!

You do know that the advertisment was in a magazine over 15 years ago?!
How many professional photographers are "gun guys"?

So they handed a non "gun guy" photographer a pistol and live ammo to play with and take pictures of? Then they didn't check the picture and approve it for use in the magazine? I don't know man, that pic is just goofy. You would think they would catch that. I'm sure they're good guns but everytime someone mentions HK I think of that.

I'm a professional photographer and interestingly enough it seems like a lot of us are gun guys. But that's besides the point. Typically with an advertisement like that there is an entire chain of command who have to approve the photo, the copy, the layout etc. The fact that the ad went all the way to print means that not one, but many people missed that little "detail". Bizarre. I wonder if anyone lost their job over that?

Or...Do we really know that it was an oversight or an accident and that it wasn't done on purpose?? maybe as a joke or like "hey, lets see if anyone notices" type... I would really hope that it didn't make it thru all those proof readers,etc and nobody noticed.... just my opinion...still funny either way!

My thought exactly. A lot of people dropped the ball here. People who work for a gun company should have caught that. Even if it was the marketing department or whatever. I'd imagine some of the folks at HK own one of these pistols.

Nice setup and great pics! Love the look of the barrel in holster and your handiwork in doing the holster cutout! Nice job!
