Combat Garden Gnomes

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)

    All I get with that link is this:

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

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

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

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

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