Clint wearing unused Tightrope Logo design T-shirt

I recently came across this image of the original sheet music for the T.G. Sheppard / Clint Eastwood single Make My Day. The novelty single was released to tie in with the media frenzy that came with the Fourth Dirty Harry movie, Sudden Impact back in 1984. However, what makes this photo rather special is the T-shirt Clint is wearing. 
Clint’s next film was Tightrope, which must have been in pre-production stages when this photo was taken. Look closely at the Tightrope design logo and you will spot that the ‘r’ in Tightrope is in fact a gun. As far as I am aware this rare logo never made it to any of the later finished poster designs, making it a T-shirt I wouldn’t mind having at all…
