    I recieved a new camera for Christmas, and it's quality is amazing. Here are some pics of my rifles.
    The picture of the Mosin is blurred by my mistake, not the camera's, I only took this picture of the mosin so far.

    That, Sir, is one of Switzerland's finest. It's a K31 straight-pull bolt action rifle chambered in 7.5x55 GP11.

    It is when I can afford to buy ammo! lol.

    Also, what do you think of the custom cheek piece I made for my Savage M110 in the top pic? I used a piece of an old t-shirt, duct tape, and electrical tape, then covered with the shell holder.

    I would not have known it was homemade from the pic, but now that you said it I can see a little reflection from the tape. Still looks good, another question is how well does it work :)

    Is that a turkish mauser? Is the bent bolt your handy work or did you recieve it like that? I have 3 Turk mausers model of 1938 and it looks exactly like that one but none of mine have a bent bolt handle. To my knowledge, no mod 38's ever did have a bent bolt handle.

    As for bolting down the safe:

    Living arrangements are temporary, will bolt down when something a little more permanent comes into play. It's sitting on a couple pieces of 2x4 because my bedroom floods when it rains heavily. Poorly constructed.

    Cheek Piece:

    Works wonders. I bought the one inch risers when I bought the scope because I had a feeling the scope wouldn't clear without them, and sure enough they won't. So for a while I had to deal with literally no cheek-weld.

    I was sitting around one day thinking about how some people made their own cheek pieces, with little bits of money, which I don't have, and decided to get intuitive. I found an old shirt and cut a couple good-sized peices from it, put them where I wanted them making sure I had room to operate the bolt, then duct-taped it to the stock, then covered it with the shell holder, and covered the exposed duct tape with electrical vinyl tape. And done. Even though it's not exactly perfect as far as aligning my eyes with the scope with a perfect cheek-weld, I get more of a chin-cheek-weld, a position that does better for me anyhow.

    Turkish Mauser:

    Yes, that's a Turk, Made in Ankara, it's a "K-Kale" made in 1940. No, the bolt butchering is not of my doing. Someone here in Council Bluffs had no idea what he was doing to this fine, accurate rifle. So, paying for his mistake, I have an otherwise nice piece of military hardware.

    haha, I knew it. I can spot a turk from a mile away, they are my favorite mauser.

    Lol it's my first. I want an actual German K98k. Specifically an original bnz. Not a crappy Mitchell's Mauser wannabe. They are wayyyy too clean.
    However, the amount of accuracy I get out of this gun, I can't complain. I can't tell you actual group size, but I guess it's just under 2" at 100 yards.

    Photography is the capture of light or better described as the capture of reflected light. Light is your friend, good light equals good photography. Good light is not strong sunlight or fluorescent light. If you will take the time to understand how light produces bright and shadows, then you will become a good photographer.
    The last photo you posted, see how much better it was? The light or lighting is better.

    Yes, I understand the concept of photography, and it is not one of my strong suites. I take much better pictures outside than I do inside, but there's a foot and a half of snow that I don't feel like trudging through to take a few pictures, so... lol.
