OK, You've got me drooling now. Presumably it's a K frame in .357 with what looks like a 3" barrel, all wrapped in Smith bluing.

So, what model izzit?

Tam said...

That's Marko's faithful 3" Model 13.

My poster isn't as pretty but that's because I made it at work where saying the word "gun" can get you fired.

B&N said...

Thanks, Tam.

I know better than to offer Marko cash, as I'm sure he will not part with it. Guess I'll have to be on the lookout for one.

Right click, save picture as, open email, forward to friends list. Done. That one is great!

Robb,

Great rendition. I tried to make that poster before but didn't do a very good job. May I use yours as a guide for my re-make?

Robb Allen said...

Of course, please do.

I just screen capped Google maps and used "Snag it" for the arrows and text, hence the crappy look. Normally, I'd use Photoshop, making a nice border and glossy arrows, but alas my company frowns on self protection.

Depending on how well I do sorting and prepping the 800 pictures from the wedding I shot this weekend tonight, I might give it another go.

However, yours above has a gun in it which makes it so much sexier!

Oleg (and everyone else)

Your comment spurred me to do it over, and better.

Hope you like this one better!

Oleg Volk said...

I made a variant also.

Oleg Volk said...

Yours, by the way, is awesome!

Thanks Tam, I have a new background for my desktop now.

Ok, I am new here, but so far everything I've seen and read has been really good stuff. You're now officially on my "Places to Lurk List."

Question,
Why the Spanish on the frame? Do all S&W's have it?

Jonathan said...

nice.

"Why the Spanish on the frame? Do all S&W's have it?"

Between 1948 and about 2004, yes.

Although we have conference rooms named Pistolaro, Remington, and Winchester it appears that wallpaper is NSFW. :)
