We want something - clean - modern - and well designed.
We tend to refer to pistol-forum.com colloquially as PF and I would not be opposed to that being incorporated into the logo or letter mark.
I think that a logo similar to the one at ar15.com would be ideal. I love the idea of abstract piece of a gun that a expert would understand but would look abstract to a normal consumer.
Try using pieces of the gun - not necessarily the gun as a whole.
Using our name in a creative unique way is a cool idea too. Check out the FT logo.
We would like the logo creative but also easily recognizable.
This logo will not only be used on the website, but will also be something that we incorporate into logo-wear such as t-shirts, hats, polos, etc.
As such, it needs to look reasonably professional while also being "cool".
