On Wednesday, maternity photographer Anna Elizabeth Malpass posted a series of somewhat unconventional gender reveal photos. If you're not familiar with the concept, gender reveals are a way to let everyone know your baby's gender without just posting one of those blurry sonogram photos on Facebook. This couple decided to do their gender reveal with rifles, explosives, and colorful chalk powder filling the air.

You're welcome, America.

It's not everyday you get clients THIS COOL. This was the most epic gender reveal I've gotten to photograph. Keith is in...

According to the post, hubby and special forces officer Keith discovered the gender of his and his wife Jamie's unborn kid by shooting a rifle at a box that exploded with colorful powder.

'Tis epic-looking indeed.

You wouldn't expect this box to be filled with explosives.

Locked and loaded with excitement.

The baby is... A BOY!

A majority of folks in the Facebook comments think these gender reveal photos are among the coolest they've seen. Other users aren't too fond of the idea, though, like this woman named Vicki:

Nice idea, but is this really necessary? What ever happened to get the results together and love each other for it? All of this extreme is showing in our young adults trying to outdo each other. Just sayin'. Not trying to be downer, just my opinion. Not looking to open up a discussion about this. Enjoy whatever you see fit!

The couple aren't the only ones to shoot at colorful explosives for a gender reveal. See one in action, below.

Do leave the gun-wielding to the professionals. Like special forces type professionals.
