Opinions needed for book cover!

Hi Guys,

I'm wrapping up my book on Vietnam bring back weapons and have been trying to come up with a cool cover. I would greatly appreciate everyone's opinions on what I have so far. They still need some tweaking. A bring back Luger from an advisor is also in the book so I was thinking of placing it on a Vietnam red beret as another option. Thanks!

The busy one with all of the rifles. Makes it more interesting than just a thing or two.

the 2nd to last would be my first vote, or last pic of the field-made pistol in 2nd place.
You don't want it too "busy".

LOL two 180 degree-out opinions (I didn't see aray's before posting mine)

The first one but the title on the wooden placard. It’s too hard to see the title on all of them.

Like the pics, and congrats on the pending book!!

Here's some quick input:

For the front cover, I'd suggest slightly modified versions of what you have, to improve readability and give more visual impact.

#1 (with shield)
Move title to green space in upper left corner
Move photo below title, in left upper middle
Move shield to bottom right corner

or

#3 (stacked rifles)
Reformat pic so that there's some empty space in the middle, for the title to sit alone, against the green.* (Something like three rifles, then enough green space so that the title can be superimposed, then the remaining five rifles)

Also, #4 (pistol and photo) would be a great back cover image

Look at Ed Tinker's "Veteran Bring Backs" series for ideas, he uses a lot of accessories to accent the cover.
