Swap image on Shur Fire Guns with Backwards Firing Guns: Reliably Unreliable Guns get usage counts

The image on on Shur Fine Guns is a gun modified to fire backwards, and the image on Backwards-Firing Gun is a gun going off in someone's face. They each illustrate the other trope better, so swapping them around would be a good idea.

We had a similar discussion a while back; IIRC the pic on Backwards-Firing Gun was changed to the Spy vs. Spy pic. The Shur Fine Guns pic doesn't work at all for that trope and needs to be removed.

EDIT: Old thread

EDIT #2: In fact...

Motion to pull

Pic doesn't remotely demonstrate the trope and, as the OP shows, can cause confusion with Backwards-Firing Gun.

I don't think it demonstrates either trope, and it causes confusion as to what those are.

Pull.

Still a funny pic.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.
Hmm, the old thread for Backwards-Firing Gun seemed to lock in on having a Spy vs Spy pretty quickly, and even though an actual Backwards-Firing Gun pick was suggested, it wasn't included on the crowner. I think there may be some Fan Myopia at work on that. It ought to be reopened, since just a gun going off in someone's face when they fired doesn't really demonstrate the firing backwards aspect.

It seems the trope was renamed, so I fixed the tagging.

I have to agree this image should be pulled. It's actively misleading. How many votes to pull do we need to pull it?
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

We've got three votes with the OP dissenting. I'd say one or two more votes to pull and we can run with it.

Pull the image.

Pulled. Here it is.

Could we perhaps get screenshots from the infamous episode of the Simpsons mentioned in the examples?

Edit: Is that image here: Juggling Loaded Guns

Clock's up; locking for inactivity/lack of consensus. No further action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
