    I dont really see how this is an advertisement for " come and steal my suff" any more than driving a nice car is.

    I think those are called steal me stickers....they just say.."Look what I have..come and get it"

    although thaere may be a chance of death invloved breaking into a gun owners home...:paranoid:

    I think they are kinda cool, wouldnt put one on my car but maybe on the tool box or safe

    Their FB page says they copyrighted 15 designs already. My question is how can you copyright the silhouette of something?

    Greetings to all - seeing how we have received such a push from the NWFA community on our facebook page, we here at Sticker-Ups.com have decided to join the discussion - - - though we may not be able to respond to everything, and we are extremely new to the whole, blog-thread-post thing . . .
    Bottomline - we came up with the idea driving to deer-camp after seeing so many stick-figures on the back window of vehicles. At the time, our "family" was in the cab: a 300 Winchester, a Mossberg 12 gauge pump, and a snub-nose 38. As those of you who chase whitetail know, we had a lot of time to think in the tree-stand. It snowballed from there. Yes, they were thought up as a decals for the vehicles. However, we have had a number of people tell us they will go on their ATV, stables, back-door of the house, etc. we are merely making them available and showcasing them in the arena we envisioned them in. All-in-all, it was an idea enabling us to start a business in today's economy in a field near and dear to our hearts - hunting-shooting (which for us here at sticker-ups means time with family and friends in the woods).
    As for the copyright: yes, you can copyright a silhouette. We spoke to our patent and copyright attorney and the advice was to copyright each gun as a 2D object (like a painting) - the actual gun itself is 3D. Honestly, if someone is gonna steal it, they will steal it. We are mainly doing the copyrights to protect us if someone claimed we had a 2D object identical to theirs. Our lawyer put it this way, "It's a big world, take the legal steps to be protected."
    Seriously ya'll, thanks for the chatter on this and if you are so inclined, please tell others to like us on the website, Sticker-Ups.com and click the facebook link - we are close to launching and continue to entertain any and all gun suggestions thrown our way. Again - Thank you.
    NWFA is awesome!

    That's pretty cool IMHO.

    I dont think i'd put any on my car, but I'm big on stickers and always have a place to put one. You should see my laptop :cool:


    I dont do facebook but i'll keep checking the website.

    I've known JT personally for a while now, great guy. This is exactly how we get new firearm products released to the public, a guy with an idea and the drive to make it a reality. Their site goes live May 1st, check it out and let them know what you think. I personally have a few of my own 'family members' displayed on our Z4. I know some of you are leery about putting these things on vehicles, but don't limit yourself to that. I have one on the cover of my laptop :)
