    I've found arinvolvo's recent contributions to be rather amusing diversions, so here's a similar picture featuring my Steyr M9. I dare you to find anything anything out of the ordinary in this picture. :scrutiny:

    I think the magazine is too long on this one too.:D

    Is there a little rusting on the trigger guard?

    There are four issues related to the magazine. Not sure what happened to the trigger guard :uhoh:

    I don't see anything wrong there, Cortland.

    Perhaps the bayonet is the wrong size? Hard to tell from the photo.

    ;) :) :D

    Looks fine to me ;)

    But really, what are those bullets you got there? They look kinda like .444s to me, but it's hard to be sure. 45-70 maybe?

    They're .45-70s Smarty Pants :cuss:

    A blue backdrop would have accentuated the brown leather better.


    Also, the obligatory knife is not tactical enough, despite being a military piece.

    Well, the green backdrop was chosen because it was the closest piece of fabric to me at the time of the photo.

    As to the bayonet (I'll give this one away--it's from a Japanese Type 99 Arisaka), you raise a good point. I've never understood why so many people feel that you've got to lay a pocket knife next to a gun before you can take it's picture. :rolleyes: Oh well...

    Now that's a good guess arinvolvo ;)

    Actually, the M9's metal "sub-frame" has been removed from the polymer housing, then the slide put back on the sub-frame, and then a monogrip from a Hi-Standard Duramatic .22 leaned up against the skeletonized M9.

    Pretty convincing, huh?

    If you actually got a .45-70 to chamber, and fire in that weapon, that's what it would look like! (Minus the top part of the barrel, that is.)

    The bullets

    The bullets pictured are for shooting to the left only. Bullets designed to shoot to the right would be pointing the other way.

    That's correct. The magazine goes to a Ruger P90 .45, is loaded with .380s, and would never fit in the .22 magazine well, which is all wrong for a 9mm Steyr.

    No gun...

    "I don't see a gun in your picture..." (This would be a G-man's answer)


    Also that pocket knife looks like it was pasted in with a 'lil bit of Photoshop shadowing. -er... uh... really bad lighting.

    (Looks like one of those "Dangerous Items" airport signs)

    So who do you know that puts bullets in mags? Could you possibly be referring to putting bullets in a clip?

    Well now cut me a little slack here. First I was told that the green background was all wrong so I made it blue. Then I was told that I needed a tactical folding knife in the picture. I didn't feel like cutting a path around all those serations on the knife, so I put a crappy shadow on it going in the wrong direction to cover up that fact.

    I'm also disappointed that nobody has pointed out that my priming powder flask is perhaps out of place.

    They finally made an auto-pistol that is easy to clean. :D

    I know you say that in jest, but it's really no joke. You field strip a Steyr by pulling down a lever. You can further completely remove the "innards" (what you see in the photo below the slide) from the polymer frame using a paper clip.

    Maybe you'd BOTH better learn to put your CARTRIDGES in a MAGAZINE.


    (Unless you have a Broomhandle Mauser, or some such relic, which actually uses a clip. But there's no clip in that picture. There are some BULLETS, but they are loaded into cases. That, some powder and some primers, gives you CARTRIDGES.)
