Anti Mugging T-shirt.

Introduction: Anti Mugging T-shirt.

This is my entry into the T-shirt hack contest.

This T-shirt will give the impression that you are carrying a powerful handgun and protect you from all but the most determined mugger.*


*Disclaimer.
This is a overly optimistic view; Using this while being mugged is likely to increase your chances of being fatally wounded quite dramatically.

Step 1: Find an Image.

This a very simple process and idea and makes quite a cool looking T-shirt,( if you're a single man with a gun fixation).

First find an image you are happy with.
I used google image search.

Step 2: Print Image.

Print the image onto Transfer-paper,(This is sold in places like P.C. world and is made especially for this purpose.)

I tinkered about with the image on Photoshop first to get the lighting and size to my liking.

I printed two on one sheet so that I could choose the best result.

Step 3: Iron on Image.

Cut around the image with a scalpel and iron onto the T-shirt.

Remove the paper backing.

Step 4: Add Straps.

Either iron on some straps or sew or add tape.

I chose tape for speed.

Step 5: Put on Your Coat.

Put on your coat and stand in front of the mirror repeating,

"Are you talking to me?"

    Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!

    This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

    uh thats not a very safe idea because not only will it stop muggers but you will get stopped by every security guard that sees it but it will attract attention by every person also.

    well, that depends I suppose. unless if you're a cop, it is entirely illegal to bear arms in public. Despite the right to bear arms. the whole thing is a stupid unconstitutional cycle.

    If the 2cd Amendment gives us a right to bare arms, and we have to have a license to carry concealed which cost in the range of $260.00. Why do we not have to be licensed to practice the 1st Amendment. Just wait, it's coming.
