Combat Garden Gnomes

A new twist on the old played out garden gnome:

I’m all for updating that boring tacky looking gnome.  It would be funny to go around swapping out peoples old style gnomes for these.

Shawn Thorrson sells them on his Etsy Page – HERE (Looks like he’s currently out of stock)

They seem to be sold out?

All I get with that link is this:

“Thank you everyone for the recent flood of interest in my Combat Garden Gnomes.

They’re flying off the shelf as fast as I can make them. I’m making more and listing them as they come out of the molds, so please check back often if I’m out of stock.

At this point I’ve got the mold for the prone gnome rifleman almost done and I’m roughing out the sculpt for the grenade-throwing gnome. Both of those will be available soon.

Stay tuned!”

If you were talking about protecting the house from “Antis” then it was very pun-ny.

Now it is super played out, because it is holding in AR15 too.

They’re the first line of defense for the upcoming zombie gnome outbreak.

The only thing missing so far is one with a grenade or mortar. Think army men:
