Magpul Calendar Shoot 2014

From our friends at Magpul.

For this year´s calendar, we opened up the armory and hired the best in the fashion industry to push the boundaries a bit of what is expected for a Magpul Calendar.

To be honest we weren’t too sure how it was going to turn out, but as the photo shoot progressed we started to realize that this calendar was something special.

The guns looked good and the girls looked great, but there was a sophistication to the photography that had broad appeal beyond the regular “girls with guns” calendars we had done in the past.

From a gritty warehouse shot in a shady part of town with the Ronin Motorcycle to an ultra modern house with backlit plastic walls, all the photographs were shot on location. No studio shots with added backgrounds were used in this Calendar.

Even the cover photo, our model wearing a designer dress while holding a vintage 1921 Colt Thompson sub machine gun, actually walked down a closed off downtown Dallas street to get the shot.

The result is a calendar with some unexpected visual and artistic elements exhibiting the Magpul touch, presented in a package with broad appeal with timeless iconic photography.

Part Art, Part Calendar, All Magpul.

2014 Magpul (12 Month) Calendar preorders will start shipping Nov 14, 2013

This year a portion of the proceeds from the calendar will go to the USMC Reconnaissance Foundation. The foundation provides assistance to wounded Reconnaissance Marines and Marine Reconnaissance families. Last year´s calendar raised over $20,000 for charity. Magpul hopes to far exceed that amount this year.

    Did Magpul ever move? I never heard an official announcement from them about leaving Colorado.

      Ok, I’ll bite. How long do you think it takes for a company to move?

      • MiamiC70 says:

        It takes a long time if they never start.
        MagPul in the time since their announcement have done nothing and until they do it is all idle talk and marketing on their part.

        • Magpul says:

          We have stated two things from the very outset. 1. We are moving out of Colorado. 2. We are not discussing details until location(s) are finalized. Talking about details just puts us as a company in a weak position with potential State governments. That said we are much closer to a final plan that can be announced. It would be safe to expect something before the end of the year on this subject.

            Ladies and Gentlemen,

            That statement came right from the horse’s mouth.

            “It would be safe to expect something before the end of the year on this subject.”…

            …Even if that something is only an announcement that an announcement will be announced sometime in the following year.

            Sorry, couldn’t resist. Yes, I appreciate my Magpul schwag, and I’ve gotten used to the “hurry up and wait”-style updates that have accompanied some of their products in the past =}

              Just because we haven’t broadcast the play by play doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy.

    I enjoyed seeing the gal behind the camera as much, if not more, than the gals in front of the camera.
