    Board policy mandates I state that I shoot for BCM. I have also done work for 200 or so manufacturers within the firearm community. I am prior service, a full time LEO, firearm instructor, armorer, TL, martial arts instructor, and all around good guy.

    I also shoot and write for various publications. Let me know if you know cool secrets or have toys worthy of an article...

    Thanks. It was a spur of the moment thing. It was taken with an iPhone 6(?)

    A high key shot of my new KAC and T2. Maybe too tight a crop.

    I agree the shot is a tad on the tight side. The offset mount is killing the linear look and feel to the pic, expanding the pic out a bit further should help with that.

    I like this picture from a recent M5 build for a few reasons. It shows a lot of details on the gun without being too busy looking. I also like the way that the natural lighting highlights the contours adds some depth to the picture. Lastly, the the angle of the shot is a little more artsy than squaring it up with the frame.

    Same crappy potato device, trying for a "Gunshop Counter as Natural Habitat" thing with some help from a preferred FFL. Hopefully I've improved a little...


    Need to figure out where I put the C8's logbook flash drive so I can mount it...
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.
