One way to ensure that the whole family gets to the church on time.

It looks like a water pistol I had back in the 80s. I also had one that passed for an Uzi.
I think I finally get what purpose those white bibbed dresses serve.
This shot rules….very Coen Brothers/Mid West flare. *_*
“This is a family friendly compound and you government agents will not be getting in today. Thank you so very much.”
I’m Bill S. Preston, Esquire!
OK kids, tomorrow is Dad’s birthday. So we are getting up and going to early church, over to Shoney’s for a nice brunch. And then we’ll head out to the country to mutilate some wildlife with the new oozie we gave him.
I think Bill’s wearing a monocle!
As in the Alloson Krause song…As I went down in the river to pray studying about that good ole way, and who shall wear the starry crown, good lord show me the way….o sinners lets go down, let’s go down, come on down, oh sinners lets go down, down in the river to pray.
Right on, CS
its not a dirty bomb, its just a cheap pistol. some places in this country aren’t terrified of pistols any more than harvest combines or guitars.
For all we know, its a movie prop. Turtleneck dad thought it would make a funny picture, he’s not affecting the toughguy stance, he’s just saying, “look at me with this unusual thing!” not even awkward, really.
Like to see how funny Shwendler Family Photos is
You are right, you are far funnier.
I heard of a shotgun wedding, but an Uzi wedding?
This shouldn’t even be considered funny. Take it down.
I respectfully disagree. This type of picture defines this website. The picture defies logic and begs for an explanation. It just doesn’t get any more awkward than this … well, sure, it could get more awkward, but you get the idea! 😎
It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who visit this website who have NO SENSE OF HUMOR!!!!
Mob hitmen have “take your kid to work day”?
This year I guarentee you Sallyjune will take home the blue ribbon for her peach cobbler or the judges can just talk to my little friend here.
“Hi! We are the new Tithe Committee. Can we count on you to raise your support a bit this year? I thought so. From now on, we will come by so you don’t have to make that long trip into church. God Bless You and SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!”
Tithe Committee thats great! I hope my church does not view awkward family photos!
In this congregation, tithing isn’t just a suggestion.
I never knew James Bond had kids
I believe the weapon is a Mac 10 Ingram.
What the….? (o_0)
I’m getting so used to the gun photos that I’m more disturbed by the pioneer dress/dentist’s bib ensemble.
Why do so many people pose with guns when they’re obviously not hunting? That is just strange.
Maybe he’s hunting for photographers?
Blessings be upon those who lead the flock with a semi-automatic weapon.
LOL this made me laugh. Well done. Perhaps she keeps the Holy Hand Grenade hidden in her skirt.
This is one where I REALLY want to know the background story. How do we know this guy didn’t kidnap these kids and is mocking authorities? It is just so freakin creepy!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you really think that anyone…. anyone… would be smiling or simply straight-faced if they were kidnapped by a nut job with a gun? Er… wait a minute…. I think maybe… HEY AFP I THINK YOU GOT ANOTHER PHOTOSHOP JOB… SHEESH, YOU THINK YOU GUYS WOULD MAYBE JUST START TO GET A LITTLE BETTER AT SPOTTING THESE!!!
Machinegun Wedding photo?
Northern Ireland, IRA family member…..’nuff said…..
I think the boy on the left has a black eye…frightening considering the photo!
Moments before the newest IRA recruits completed their first mission…
Dad’s just gangsta like that. Rollin’ with his Mack 10.
Coming this Fall: He’s a former pastor and weapons expert. She’s a girl from amish country. He’s a street smart high school student. Together they are fighting crime in the country’s heartland in Iowa Blues.
I laughed so hard at that! Thanks for making my day!
Oh, you so need a catch phrase for the Rev. I’m drawing a blank now…something better than:
“The Heartland is not for Heathens.”
I’m from Iowa, and even Iowans wouldn’t watch a show like that.
I’m from L.A. and I would totally watch a show like that! 😉
Hahaha me too!
Kids? C’mon, get on your best Sunday go to shooting clothes!
I think the gun is there to signify “shotgun wedding”.
He’s getting ready for his date with one of the Compound Bow girls.
The girl on the right has Sally Jupiter hair.
“We invite you to join our family for prayer, worship and song. But if you try to so much as lay a finger on my daughter..!”
The von Trapp kids are all grown up.
when mossad puts agents under cover, they go DEEP!
This is one I’d really like to know the back story behind, I’m a “gun head” and this pic is too wierd even for me… :/
Ms. Atwood´s “The Handmaiden´s tale” Live!!
The pastor decided to make sure the this couple would not be part of the highest divorce rate to date….with a new “twist” to pre-marital counseling!
no more mr. nice guy
Don’t ever mess with the Columbians. (By “Columbians”, we mean Columbia, Missouri)
I’ve learned my lesson!
When Pastor Joseph caught Amanda shagging his son Luke, he took the shotgun wedding a little too far…
What kind of gun is that???
Hi Jen, It looks like a Mac 10 or copy with a fake noise suppressor….. and I doubt it’s full auto, just a semi-auto
Its a Mac-10 (or 11) with a silencer. Designed to shoot from the hip and clear a room of all living things but thats about it. No aim whatsoever.
I see prairie, but this guy is no Reverend Alden.
For some reason, the turtleneck and blazer combo makes this work.
About every other late 1960s early 1970s action hero wore that combination of clothing.
I think it was James Coburn who was one of the first he-men in Hollywood to wear a turtle neck and blazer. I remember the style very well.
I think he just shot a part in the girl’s hair. Is she holding the ammo clip?
Why do I get the feeling that they live in a compound rather than simply a neighborhood? And please, somebody tell me that is not a wedding ring I see on that young girl’s hand…
It’s on her index finger, so I don’t think it is
My guess: a shotgun wedding 😉
Maybe it was a shotgun wedding 🙂
it’s a promise ring
I don’t think so…it looks like it’s on the middle finger.
Nope-it’s on her middle finger.
The ring’s on her middle rather than ring finger, so, no, it’s not.
The ring was ‘shopped in. 😉
Is that Bill (or Ted?) on the left? (whichever one is not Keanu Reeves)
He does look like Bill! What I want to know is why does anyone who isn’t in the military own a gun like that? That’s not a hunting weapon, that’s a people killing weapon!
BILL is NOT amused!
They are fun.
Bill S Preston Esquire!
AND WE’RE…….WYLD STALLIONS!
Be excellent to each other and….PARTY ON, DUDES!
Okay. But what POSSESSES people to pose in a field, in their Sunday best, with a firearm?
Not just any firearm – An assault riffle.
Exactly! It’s NOT an assault rifle!!!!!!!!!!
…it’s a crossbow…
The girl is wearing a perfectly normal church dress for “the style of the day”.
I said the boy was wearing the style of the day
Wow, someone from back in the day wears a dress and they are suddenly a mormon? You speak like you have all kinds of knowledge or something, but I really doubt that!
Hey, HK! Chill, buddy. Yeesh. (gun nerd)
You’re right, I was harsh. Sorry. I think I was a bit defensive since I read so many anti-gun comments on this blog, and I hate when people throw out the “assault” weapon label on every gun they see that doesn’t look like hunting rifle.
Sorry, AZSally, I was a jerk in my response to your comment.
The family that preys together stays together.
ha! excellent first comment!!
Yes, they are the assault of the earth.
I trust you’ll be at confession this Sunday, grimey? 😉
I suppose I need all your preyers
