waste of space


May 20, 2003, 09:29 PM
I just got done browsing my typical nightly run of forums and just cannot figure something out. Why is it that so many people seem to have the need to post 1) pictures of common, ordinary, standard production run firearms? :rolleyes: 2) Post pictures that are of so poor quality they don't show any "special" features? :banghead: or lastly 3) post poor quality pictures of common, ordinary, standard production firearms? :cuss:
Most of these people seem to take all the time to place thier "tactical" items out and toss a few cartridges nearby before snapping the picture. If you're going to take the time effort to do that, make the focus of the photo worth it.

Sorry, partner...we all bow to both your superior technical expertise and more refined firearms taste.

Are you so bandwidth poor that you have to waste everyone else's time?

Some folks enjoy their Makarov's and SKS's...kwitchercryin'.

What's really bothering you?:rolleyes: If that is the worst thing you have to deal with in your little world, consider yourself very lucky.:scrutiny:

I like pics! I would rather see a pic of a Makarov or a CZ-52 that a $2000 Kimber but I am a strange guy I guess.:p

and I just wish I had a digital camera so I could take out of focus pictures.
1 of these days I'm going to learn how all you guys post them cool pictures.

damn, i was all set to post some pictures of the .22 rimfire my grandfather gave me (which was my first rifle, his first rifle, and the first rifle my nephew ever fired) before he passed, but i can't for fear of offending the allmighty blkhawk73's sensibilities (it being a run of the mill remington 514T).

i guess i can't post pictures of my enfield number4mk1, which was the first rifle i bought when i turned 18, or the mossberg 500 that i was given as a graduation present, or the smith and wesson five screw that has been fired by five generations of the wyatt family because blkhawk73 doesn't want to see them. oh gosh. whatever am i to do?!

Folks are proud of their guns. I'm thankful that they take the time to share pictures of them with me.

A little constuctive advice on how to take clearer pics may help increase the number of clearer pics getting posted.

Fortunately, there is a professional photographer at the top of our masthead. Other than that, there are very few of them on this board. Even so, I feel the ratio of good photos to bad is very high. Since this is not a photography BB, the overall subject of photographic quality is OT, although comments on quality in the various threads certainly aren't.

This thread started off on the downhill slope and I don't see it going anywhere other than further downhill, so I'll close it.
