Images are a little too dark but I was feeling all artsy and drunk a couple nights ago. I am looking for a better camera.

Lighting is tough to do right for gun porn, but I give it a good empty mag (wanders off to smoke a cigarette). :shock:

The soft candle light makes it kinda romantic. My wife would like it, but I agree with 97cr250. I like mine down and dirty :D :twisted: :D


All kidding aside, nice collection.

I was looking at it as more of a shrine to my autos.

I've got the bbl on the V10 in the upper left polished and it looks wild through the port slots of the slide. I was considering jeweling that whole bbl, but I may have to leave it like it is. When I get better pics, I'll post up more on the v10.

Crack open a bottle of wine and put on some Kenny G (or Metallica) and you've got yourself quite a little evening there. Dinner and a movie and you're gonna get some for sure.

I like the way you arranged the guns and the angle of the shot in the first picture but it seems out of focus.

yah, the first pic is a bit out of focus, in fact all of them are slightly out because I took them w/ the only digital camera I have... my video camera, and like I said, I was a little tipsy so was probably swaying back and forth a bit trying to take the shots.

Nikon, The p2k is my carry gun and I got it for 650 used out of a private collection and when i got it, it was still apparently unfired. They sell new for 750 and up. I've seen them go used recently as cheap as 550, but usually around 600. Yes they went to the industry std. rail on the p2000 us models and they just recently started selling them w/ a DA/SA config instead of the LEM trigger like I have.

The 1911 is a gun I built. It is a comp'd full chambered 38 super i was building for fun. single stack but still a great gun. Currently needs new recoil and firing pin springs.

I did it with a White Crayola crayon....You gotta rub the crayon..whip off a few times to make sure all the letters are filled in pretty good. I got the idea from Pistol-gear.com's Forum.

Sweet! as luck would have it, I have Crayons coming out the wazoo! Now I have white lettering on my slide too! (The "Springfield Armory, produkt Karlovac, Crotia" stamp on the top of the slide looks particularly good!)

Of course all this wax is going to melt next time I go shooting, but it sure looks good at the moment!
