"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
$2K worth of Belgian plasticky goodness?
Actually, I'm more a-drool over the ~$2k-ish handful of American steel. :)
Those are nice pics! Lighting is the hardest thing.
Yeah, with my no-control-over-lighting snapshots, I wind up going for the "Fill a memory card and hopefully get four keepers" approach. Bleh. Someday I'll get some proper lighting gear, and maybe a tripod.
I just left CCA and blasted the 9mm on the range. Played with the FS2000 too.You guys are aware of the recall, right?http://www.saysuncle.com/archives/2006/08/04/gunnie_psa/-SayUncleBTW, today's kaptcha is:pukudqy
Tam, just how far are you from Deal's Gap?
"You guys are aware of the recall, right?"All those currently shipping already have the fix.
" Tam, just how far are you from Deal's Gap?"About 30-45 minutes, depending on the vehicle and the urgency. :)
You know what would be better than AR mags on that puppy? A nice HK mag! Got to fondle one of the 2000s at Top Gun on Tuesday. Wasn't a shooter, unfortunately, but nice to touch.
Those are really great shots! What camera do you use?The limb from last night's storm looked pretty good as a prop!
A Nikon Coolpix 990.It takes really good gun pics all by itself because it used to be Oleg's, and is therefore still dripping with Magic Gun Pr0n Juju.
Well I know this ain't go'na sound good, but I may have to use my gun money stash for a new camera soon. However, I'll start saving for another weapon soon after!Thanks for answering.
Get two tripods and a thin gauzy sheet of some kind to kill the highlight glare. Outdoor lighting looks best on an overcast day, it richens the colors - fake the effect by using open-shade or making it. Basically you're trying to compress the widest range of lighting variables, and squeeze 'em down to something the camera can handle. :-)
That rounded back of the grip looks nice, one of these days I may have to get an estimate for that on my Kimber.
I don't much care for the AR-15 type action - apparently Stoner liked direct impingement so much he only developed a gas cylinder design for Mk23 because Colt ended up with all his patents from Armalite.But anything in 5.56 that uses a gas piston gets my attention. And that P2000 is one sexy piece of steel and polymer. Since I can't spring two grand right now (and if I could, I probably already would have bought something from Robinson Arms) all I can do is gaze wistfully.Hey Tam, why don't you post a photo of you with the P2000? That'd be a twofer!
