The cross hairs theme is interesting and should be explored perhaps but I would rather not have overt references or pictures of guns
I also do not want trite references to magic like rabbits or typical tophats.
Stylized wands doubling as weapons might also be a possibility
This is as far from balloon doggies and kiddie magic as you can get

#21 looks better
I think we are getting dangerously close here.
The problem is this.
I like very much the way the cross hairs look #15.
Can we combine that look with #21 and still keep the two color Text?

Also what would it look like if we put a trigger on the wand?
Just a thought.
