This is probably a lame joke, but there’s a shop with this name near me and I know they mean like, holsters and stuff, but in the back of my head I always think of it as a combination gun store/ Claire’s.
It’s so adorable!
Is that a pedobear hat?
No. The eyes have whites and the mouth is closed.
Considering they sell pink Hello Kitty assault rifles and have bedazzled holsters for pistols I don’t think a weapons shop selling a few headbands and beanies is too much of a stretch.
I’m not sure they can sell Hello Kitty rifles anymore. I think they passed a law here in the states more or less formally forbidding that.
Either that or they drove that poor businessperson out of business. Same deal, really.
Nah, that was a custom job. Specifically to make it look as ridiculous as possible as a joke about how California gun laws are based more on what makes it look scary rather than what makes it actually, you know, a gun. And the Bedazzled holsters? Wish I’d thought of that. Take infomercial rhinestones, and then apply to a standard kydex holster.
You’ll actually find purses at some of the more… hip? forward? gun stores now. Sure, they’re for concealing, but they’re purses. No shit. And I’m pretty sure it’s law that every gun store have a collection of pink parts, and at least one pink derringer and another hot pink revolver.
Certain locations have banned certain colors and coatings, New York being the most infamous in this regard. While there’s something to be said for not making a weapon look like a toy, it’s like banning red cars.
Now mass producing something with a trademarked logo on it? That’s a different kettle of fish.
I’d like to point out that a Hello Kitty rifle only makes the rifle _MORE_ scary.
Which nicely mocks the law… if they were making guns more to be scary looking, than gun shaped… all stores would be selling Kalishni-Kitty, Tommy-Puppies and Glock-Keropis.
I got my wife’s wallet a pink and camo Remington one at a gun store dang thing cost 40 bucks and she saw it when we were looking at guns so yea diversification is a b***
No business actually ever sold Hello Kitty rifles, it would’ve been a pain getting the licensing. What you’ve seen is that anyone can buy a can of pink Krylon, a few Hello Kitty stickers, maybe some rhinestones, and customize their own Kalashni-Kitty in a few minutes.
Kalashni-Kitty is now my favorite phrase. Never again will I hear the formal title of an AK without the bedazzled glory you have bestowed upon it’s name. Thank you, dear sir.
“The Child Protective Services department has ordered 200 Kalashni-kitties to beef up their tactical ability to extract endangered children from crack houses and meth labs.” – I really want to hear this on the news!
They also sell cat ears. For the furries, you know. After all, they’re all stomped on by the rest of the Internet.
…Why must I be a fur in a world that hates them?
Because yours is an abomination that stalks the wrbz se eking to corrupt the innocent, much like cc any male 20 something who likes MLP.(You know who you are… fuckin bronies.)
Ahahahahaha, I still don’t get the hate for furries and bronies and the like. Is it just, like, popular to do so? I’d rather just talk shop about my Doctor Who/Pokémon/Star Wars fanfiction and how much I like lesbians and think Anita Sarkeesian is totally right about everything. /sarcasm
There’s a shop where my friend bought her prom dress called Addison’s (or maybe it’s Allison’s) Guns and Gowns. There is hunting supplies along with prom/wedding wear available. The story behind why she did it is cool though. She’s this super awesome redneck lady who couldn’t afford a dress when she was younger, since she lived on her own, and so she wanted to sell dresses when she was older. Buuut, she turned out to love guns too. So she combined the two. Perfect shop for northern Canada. :)
Sounds like a good place for fathers to shop… gowns for daughter and guns for the father so he can shoot any troublesome dates.
Dad’s One-Stop First-Date Shop! Me, I figure on settin’ the front porch, sharpening a nice axe.
My dad used to sharpen knives and clean his guns when my sisters would bring their dates by. He would check the sighting by aiming at them. My current brother in law was the only guy that thought it was cool and spent an hour (approximately) talking over weapons with him.
That is the most amazing woman. I require neither guns nor dresses and I would still find a reason to shop there.
Huh. Perfect place to prepare for a shotgun wedding, I guess.
Ba dum, pish.
ahh dammit you beat me to it
There’s a similar place in Spencer Idaho. Except it’s a combination fine jewelry store / cafe.
There’s a shop in Stellenbosch, South Africa called Gun O’Clock, whose name should be self-explanatory.
…that sounds AWESOME.
Also, like an excellent lady.
There is (or at least was a few years back) a store in Flagstaff, Arizona, that sold guns, beer, booze, pornographic magazines and movies, and……..they had a drive through window!!!! No lie!
I’ve seen that place on the news a few times.
Reminds me of butler guns in barrow ga half car part store other half one of the largest gun stores in this part of ga including Atlanta
Who’s that boy?
The Commander’s kid, along with the girl.
And if Jonsey ever wanted kids, this situation is a win-win for her, because the Commander has already spawned, so she doesn’t have to worry about the risk of complications.
There needs to be a gun store/Claire’s combo. That needs to exist.
You can call it Flare, Food, and Firearms.
and get visited by people like Bear Grylls, who will be so confused, they start to drink their own piss… ok i’ll leave now..
Me, my girlfriend, and my cousin actually own a store called Liska Magliozzo emporium of food weapons video games and sexual devices.
Great Googly Moogly, that is outstanding!
Well, OK, I’m interested.
Please tell us where this store is so we can visit it should we ever go there.
Its in Reno s.mccarren the one next to the starbucks
Now that’s my idea of one-stop shopping. Throw in a microwave center where I can get tacquitos and I’d never leave.
There’s one near me named Guns & SIGNS
Do they make signs pre-bullet holed?
Maybe make the signs WITH the guns.
A sign made of bullets then?
or a sign where the metal has been cut out by guns firing holes?
Maybe the staff knows ASL and they have the local armed deaf market cornered?
Trufax. I sometimes wonder about gun stores, they so often seem like fronts for cheap costume jewelery and feather boas. Ilovethattoysharksomuch.
The toy shark that his son has is the cutest thing ever, I love it, and I love the fact he always carries it! Sharks are the best.
No guns involved, but there was a shop near my parents’ place (rural area) called Scary Larry’s Tattoos and Auto Repair. Always made me wonder if the black tattoo ink was actually recycled motor oil……
Sounds a bit like a place we have up here in Spokane. Rising Phoenix was a tattoo & piercing shop that also sold fantasy art memorabilia (Amy Brown, Jessica Galbreth, etc) and all the ritual supplies that a pagan could ever wish for. Was always an interesting place…
Great idea, a shop where daddy and his kids could shop simultaneously!
It’s nice to see how the kids accept Jonesy. Is it me or have they grown a bit over time?
Didn’t you hear? Kids have been growing, it is the newfangled trend.
in comics it’s not so common
A shop for daddy and his daughter. What could be more wholesome?
Add a games section in the back and a food stand you have every necessary store in one.
So, basically a Wal-Mart then? Well, one of the Wal-Marts that sell firearms, at any rate.
There are Wal-Marts that sell firearms? Well then, you learn something new every day, I guess.
in Idaho they do. I can go to Boise and that Wal-Mal has guns. Probably Texas too.
All the Wal-Marts in Alaska carry guns, and the Fred Meyers too. But then if you’re in a city big enough to have a department store you probably have like five family-owned gun shops in the area anyway.
Pretty much every Wal-Mart carries guns, but mainly .22 rifles and other guns that are primarily for hunting.
Actually, a great many Wal-Marts do not carry firearms at all. The two nearest me, in fact, do not. They do sell ammunition, pellet and BB guns, airsoft, etc, but not firearms. OTOH, I know that at least two, maybe three, other Wal-Marts in town that do. Depends a lot on the area they’re in. The ones outside the beltway or that draw mostly from a rural clientele are more likely to deal in such things.
And I hear they’ve started carrying AR-15s.
In MA they do not sell guns. I think it does have a lot to do with what state you are in.
As I was growing up in Southern California, I remember that Wal-Mart sold guns. I don’t know if they do anymore.
Im still waiting for you to make a Shark plushie I can buy
I will gladly spend the little money I can’t afford rent and food with to buy a shark plushie.
JC Penny’s used to carry shark pillows, my wife and I got them as wedding presents. our only rule was no hitting with the heads, the eyeballs hurt.
Ahahaha, cute! :D I want a store like that!
The perfect store for simple zombie videogames. It’s only missing a rack of healing kits. This should exist.
Here is my theory as to why that is not the case:
We need to see that hat on the Commander. Need.
Oh so very yes. Commander NEEEEEEEEEDS to wear that hat.
Am I the only one who immediately assumed this was a TF2 joke before reading the description? Hats and all that.
I honestly thought my RSS feed had glitched when both the second Fanboys comic and this had the same title. (http://www.abload.de/img/sc20111213-211636yf0uq.jpeg)
Just thought I’d share that. (I’ve nothing else to waste my time with! I swear!)
I happen to live fairly close to a military supply store that tends to have all sorts of random crap. Along with rocket launchers and a lovely knife selection, they’ll occasionally have plastic viking hats, fuzzy handcuffs, jackalopes, and a good deal of fashion accessories. Went in a few weeks ago shopping for a new pair of combat boots; came out with a My Little Pony backpack to go with them.
I miss having places like that nearby. I always got my shoes, boots, coats and backpacks there. The stuff lasts forever!
There is a gun store near my parent’s that is “Mike’s Gun ‘N’ Things” I’ve always wondered what the ‘things’ are. My friend has also been to a Gun ‘N’ Vitamins shop. So, really I can get behind Gun ‘N’ Cat Ears!
That’s it, I’m starting my own spot.
Fren’s Weaponry Emporium and Burrito Stand. If you can eat it or use it to stab, maim, impale or bludgeon, we most likes got it!
Well, you can eat a burrito.
You can use a frozen burrito to bludgeon with.
Frozen chimichanga wedges can be used to stab or possibly impale.
Sharpened taco chips might be able to maim someone…
I’d like to order a Hawaiian with extra cheese…
I’ve been to a place called Handbags and Handguns.
They sell ladies accessories and handguns. And make-up. And hair products.
Where is this miracle store?
The last time I saw it was in 2007 in Dallas, Texas.
Bass Pro Shops.
My local gun store also has a jewelry section to entice more female clientele. They also encourage more women to apply for their sales positions.
Whatever draws in the customers right? Children can be (annoyingly) persuasive like that at times.
I would like to say that I am a fag that does not like guns nor Claire’s. I would also like to say that I would buy shit-tons of guns and sparkly pink shit from this store.
I saw a store once: “Computer Repair and Acupuncture”
‘I saw a store once: “Computer Repair and Acupuncture”’
While traveling the back roads of Nova Scotia I saw one “Computer Repair and Welding”.
I couldn’t picture a course in life that would make a person skilled (never mind current) in both.
Art Major in college; took computer repair courses to be able to eat.
Could be a joint business with computer technicians and acupuncturists/welders.
I bet it’s run by the Third Street Saints.
Shopping at Planet Saints was never so fun.
After telling my dad about The Last Round, a bar location in VTM: Bloodlines, he planted the idea of the name being for a gun store/bar combo. He also said there was a bar/laundromat where he used to live called Soap and Suds. It actually made sense, because people had something to do while the laundry was going. (And it was harder for people to steal clothes because the owners were right there and just had to look over their shoulder.)
I feel like serving liquor and selling firearms in the same location is just asking for trouble.
Oh, and we have a gun store/gas station in town. I’m a California native and couldn’t stop laughing the first time I saw it.
Now THAT is my kind of gun store <3
I hope next week we get to see the Commander wearing that hat.
Personally I would a gun store with a bakery inside. Get some ammo, then get a pie or pecan roll, wash it down with some milk.
He’s right… I mean he fells better about taking his kids there! He can get them something as well. Perfectly normal.
Ah, the simple things in life! All you really need is a good gun, enough ammo to keep the neighbors on their toes, and a really cute hat.
Somehow, it seems a bit irresponsible to offer animal-themed accessories alongside hunting equipment.
…. Oh, crap, did I just explain the joke?
No, you added a new layer to it. Oh, the humanity…
They’re just adding depth to the role-play.
It’s the gateway drug to hunting furries.
People should hunt furries.
Amen to that.
There was/is a store at a Mall somewhere in central Florida that was called “Swords & Purses.” Sure enough there was truth in the advertising. One half of the store was swords and the other half was purses.
When I lived in Copperas Cove, Texas back in the 90’s, there was a shop in town called “The Guns And Liquor Store”.
Sorry, there were two shops named that. In the same strip mall. They shared a sign. One sold liquor, the other sold guns.
I find that Texas has the most ways to combine a liquor store with whatever.
Beer and Tacos, a drive-thru fast food/liquor store.
Brakes and Booze, a parts store that sold liquor
Shots, a liquor and gun store
Campfires, a camping and liquor store
There was also a put-put golf place that had a liquor store attached, a drug store and liquor store together, a church and liquor store together, and – for all that is wrong with the world – a liquor store at the back of a kids’ school supplies store.
You ever been school-supply shopping?
An attached liquor store would be a godsend.
Yes. And I don’t think that booze would be enough to relieve the stress of school supply shopping. I normally play something like Battlefield 3 to relieve that kind of stress.
This week’s installment is weapons-grade adorable.
They may have great accesories, but their gun selection is CRAP! Why would you fill fifteen different wall slots all with the exact same model of shotgun? *evil grin*
Maybe the shopkeep hasn’t gotten far enough in the game to sell double-barrels.
Should’ve at least picked up the chainsaw by now, though.
They’re all hanging on the fourth wall.
We actually got a Army/Navy surplus store here in Colorado that does just this. Military stuff for the grownups, funny animal hats for the kiddies. Fun for the whole family!
Growing up in the lil hick town of Frankfort MI; we had ” Dewey’s Bait, Ammo & Barbershop “.
None of my big city friends believed me until I brought back pictures.
The Commander’s kids are so incredibly adorable! I can’t get over it!
These fictional characters make me feel so many emotions.
Still makes more sense then the store that sold fireworks with the slogan “Let us help you blow stuff up” then offering free kittens.
It should be noted that a cat ear head band would help keep the hair out of one’s eyes when they are trying too shoot. The fuzzy hats also probably keep your head warmer then the camouflage ball caps I usually see hunters wear.
… *high fives* That, my dear, was e- …no, don’t say it Megan…
…it was… Amazing.
*mutters under breath* Must… not… say… the word… low… on money…
Hey looks like that Zombie hunter author finally got her hat sold in stores.
crap i read every comic
i know that feel bro, i know that feel
That puppy hat. I must have it. D:
You know what I especially like? How you’ve managed to draw a credible, working relationship between the main character and another character without making it the center of the story :)
Oh hey, I think I spy a Jigglypuff.
and yea, the spambot was good.
Just past a store that says “Clayton Guns and Toys”. I will try to get a picture of it.
Ahaha, if that was a shop around here, I’d go there.
It’d make a nice change from the ONE shop we have in this little town. Damn countryside.
Why do I suspect that they only have one costumer?
Gun shop near here is called “Guns, Fishing, and Other Stuff”. So they got their bases covered for whatever they feel like selling.
Hee hee! Makes me wonder if I should tack on a gun store to my bakery…my boyfriend would never live at home ever again ^^;
You could call it “Buns’n’Guns”
i need to take my gf shopping there.
Reminds me of a place not two block from my house: Hellbent Tattoos, Piercings, & Notary.
Been driving past it almost every day for years now, and I still find it awesome every time the sign catches my eye.
You can get a notary stamp or a tramp stamp. We do both!
I want that panda hat on the bottom rack o ~o….
They actually mean those keychain things like in Kingdom Hearts. Hang on of those off a shotgun and it’ll kill anything big enough to die.
There’s a place in Zimmerman, MN that is gun/barber shop.
I give you the Kalashni-Kitty
the bridge to Valhalla is a rainbow
There is nothing about this comic that I don’t like.
I love Jonesy. I find her so endearing for some reason.
There’s a clothing store a few miles from my house, whose large, light-up, above the store sign only says GUNS. I think they guy sells sports uniforms and such to the schools in the area. The guns just supplement his income.
I would TOTALLY shop at a gun store / Claire’s. LOVE EET.
I would totally shop there.When my daughter was a marine cadet she totally wanted a hello kitty M16.Unfortunatly UK gun laws forbid it :(.
Not sure if the adult instructors would have thought it cool or hated.Marines are a strange lot.
Either the Commander comes in so often they just started carrying that stuff for him…
Or he went back in time and set the place up himself with a bit of spacefuture money left over from The Expendables.
There is a shop in London and used to be a shop in Glasgow that sold firearms, crossbows, knives and swords, and… musical instruments.
It even features in an Eddie Izzard skit “Hmmm, banjos are down, bt Uzis are through the roof.”
Okay, so there’s this store in my college town that sells swords and… handbags. And I mean the downright girliest looking, pink and black zebra striped, bedazzled handbags… And throwing knives, swords, daggers, etc.
I’ll bet those two have a blast at Take-Your-Kids-To-Work Day
I used to drive by a place all the time that had a sing reading
Sadly it was two stores in the strip mall, not a combination.
OMG is that the Cancer Purse!
btw i have been reading you comic all morning(minus a brief trip to the library and loves it so.
The funny thing is some of that headgear Would aid in hunting animals.
I know this is late but I just found your comic and love it.
You want to talk about diversity in a business….there is a shop I drive by in town that says “Beauty Salon and Chainsaw Repair” I’m so tempted to go in there.
I do have to wonder what the author thinks of this one now. After hearing about all the things people have combined with a gun store in reality, I mean. Like, you make something up as a joke and then something like a hundred people tell you “Yeah, I’ve been to a place like that.”
