    My friend came over tonight to watch the UFC fight and I asked him to bring over his camera to get some high-res shots of my
    newest guns. All firearms are unloaded. Here are the cuts:

    Here are some shots of me (My Finger is not directly on the trigger, it is rested on the inside/front of the trigger guard and it is unloaded with the hammer down!):

    This is the only action my bed has gotten lately:

    Nice... in the first pic, your finger apopears to be ON THE FLIPPIN' TRIGGER... a definite violation of rule 3...

    I'd like to see you fire that 12 Ga shotgun with the arm fully extended... should be good for a laugh...

    and the line "all the guns are unloaded"... umm... rule 1 anybody?

    Technically my finger is inside the trigger guard with my fingernail resting forward on the guard inside the frame- my finger was not rested on the trigger (plus the hammer wasn't cocked and its not loaded :neener: ). So technically its not actually ON the trigger, although its inside the trigger guard, Ill bite. Eitherway for this photo i dont care. its unloaded and double checked, yep still unloaded. I posed for the picture :p

    Great pictures! Very nice weapons! And way to go on the finger thing I think the whole 3 (or is it 4) rule picture Nazi thing is stupid! and I am glad to see others are with me :neener:

    Is that last pic your daily carry or just a sweet pic?

    You can't get shot from a gun photo on your computer I think ... Here's one that annoyed my wife to no end , she was not amused to see our daughter learning about AK'S. Even though she is an archer and not bad with the .22 :

    I've posed for these kind of pics myself but one has to wonder if you were involved in a shooting, no matter how justified, if one of these self portraits wold somehow find its way into the hands of the media or the prosecuter and be used to portray one as some kind of psycho killer gun nut.
    Not saying anyone here is a potential assassin but probably one of the most well known photos of Lee Harvey Oswald is the one of him holding his rifle. Just food for thought.

    Just a quick question about the rules: how do you all dry-fire at home without violating them?? Or do you have some sort of safe backstop you always point the gun at?

    I'm a firm believer in the rules, but after double or triple checking the weapon, and pulling the trigger the first time while pointing it at something safe, I guess I don't worry about it again during that particular session.

    Just me, YMMV

    Thanks guys, some other forums are flaming me for the trigger thing, but whatever, I know the rules and my buddy who is a marine insisted on me doing so. Hes a nut. Good thoughts on the whole picture thing to, but its cool.

    Moondance, you can get dummy rounds for your gun so that you can dry fire. they act to cushion the firing pin. I have a set of these for every gun I own, also its great to have for when you are showing someone how to load and use a weapon. They are made my A-ZOOM. Here is their website: http://www.lymanproducts.com/azoom/index.htm

    ripcurlingsarcasm (or whatever the abbreviation is :) ), is the second from the left cartridge a 45-70? It looks a little long, maybe you shoot a .45-90:what:

    And the third from the left, it has very sharp shoulders. What cartridge is that one?

    Hey those are all .45 ACP Federal HydraShocks. If it looks off it may be from the quilt making them uneven. They are all 45 for sure.

    I had a photo holding/aiming a shotgun with one hand...I took it down as its silly and not really appropriate gun handling. ;)

    There are a few types of post that need not be submited as they contibute nothing and only make the poster come off as a pompus ***. The main negative post comes from the spelling nazis, and then in a close second are the finger police. Anybody who tells you they have never put their finger on the trigger before being ready to fire is very likely a liar. A gun is loaded till it is checked in a proper manner, after that is is safe to consider unloaded ( but I still wouldnt point it at anyone). When I handle a gun I always double check the chamber both visually and with my finger then dry fire in a safe direction. After that its ok to consider unloaded.........and touch the trigger all you want.

    DING! DING! DING! We have a winner! Also, the firearms were never directly pointed at the photographer, the lens has a slight zoom on it and it is a little misleading. :fire:

    How old is your daughter? I can assume your wife doesn't have a problem(or not as much) with her daughter shooting a .22, but just with shooting AK's?

    To me a gun is a gun, although I have agrued with other gunowers about this before. Myself I can't see why your wife wouldn't have problem with a .22, but freaks out seeing her daughter with an EBR.
