Very close on the guess.

It's an AR-15 carbine. A citizens version of the M4 (no full auto).

ETA: Actually, more a clone of an M16 - the primary predecessor to the M4.

Bushmaster?

My colleague now officially freaks me out as well.. For someone in England where guns are illegal he has a stupid amount of knowledge on them!

Again, very close. It's actually a DPMS, but they were bought by Bushmaster last year (the rifle is older than that though).

1) Interesting viewpoint on the DPMS but I would have liked directly looking down the site, or a tad more turned so the front of the barrel isnt cut off. Like the lighting. What are all the little white spots from?
2) Love this one. I would bring up the exposure in a few places so the gun doesnt disappear into the background such as the mag in the bottom right and just to the right of the hammer. 1911 I assume?
3) Cool shot. Would have liked to not have the trigger guard cut off but doesn't bother me that much. What is the round thing with the screw in it above the hammer?
4) Impossible to make that gun look bad.
5) On the top of my list for my next gun purchase. Bring down the highlights at the end of the barrel to avoid the blending into the background seen right below the front sight. Other than that love it.
6) Interesting. Maybe try getting a little more of the gun in the shot. I think that would give it a tad more visual impact.

I really need to stop being lazy and get my guns out for some photo sessions sometime soon. Maybe while the weather is crappy.

Very nice shots,very clean guns. I am a semi-auto man, but that S&W looks mighty fine.

I don't understand the attitude of non US people and guns. No gun has ever gone off by itself, walked into a store and held up a clerk, or shot it's owner by mistake. They are just dead iron, wood and plastic and can't do anything on their own.

It's the nut jobs holding them that is the problem. We do have our fair share of nut jobs though.

First off - thanks for the compliments guys. I try.

F-117HWK - Thanks very much for the critique. That sort of commentary does nothing but help me move forward and it's much appreciated.

Now - let's try to not make this thread a 2nd amendment rights soap box. Trust me cannonloader - I do understand where that comes from. Heck - I'm a mod on an AR-15 forum. But nobody has been casting insults or said anything derogatory here. We should all be able to play nice ... right? :)

PS - Which Smith? The 625 or the 627? ;)

PPS - F-117HWK ... Bzzzt. Wrong. Cool - I stumped someone. #2 is a CZ P-01 9mm. No shame in missing that - odd angle to be sorting out what it is and with the hammer and all ...

No it was a joke that has been going around for years... I agree with you completely. Johnny, just like society, is trying to blame the pen when, in fact, it was his fault, not the pens (aka the gun)...

My guns are going with me to the grave.

Thank you.

I can see how it would be an easy mistake to make at first flush. Still guessing you were led astray by the cocked single action hammer.

Oh - the fiddly bit on the 625 with the screw in it near the hammer is the rear sight. The screw is the windage adjustment. Kinda got lost in the black background (relates to several of your other observations).

As for the blurred out highlights in the background on the first shot - just too much steam from one of the lights falling on something with texture on the background (one of the 'Backgrounds in a Bag' velour backdrops).

As for the angle not showing the muzzle on the AR15 - would have been a TOTALLY different shot to show it. To borrow a term from Bushmanster - that's a custom "Dissipator" upper. It's a (turned down) 16" barrel with a 20" gas system & forearm. There's only about 2" of muzzle sticking out the front, including the flash suppressor. :)

This shows that a bit. Sorry about the soapbox text - only copy I have handy from here. Did this for another forum, another purpose -

Actually, that one's fairly tame. Big S&W N frame .357 magnum. Pretty heavy wheel gun for that load.

The real wrist breaker is #6. Doesn't show but that's a lightweight 5.5" barrel .45 Colt. I use that one with full house loads as a backup sidearm when deer hunting in bear country. That unit will rock you back on your heels.

Gotcha. Interesting on the sight, I truthfully had no idea. Yea Ive got a completely stock Charles Daly AR with the 22" barrel so it sticks out quite a ways, still gotta pick up a small one. Id like to get a permit for a 14" but that probably wont happen any time soon. Great hobby, but expensive as hell... Kinda like photography haha.

Depends on how bad your addiction is. It can be pretty costly.

Especially when you start putting optics on precision rifles - worst of both worlds. :)

Except for maybe the addictive part, don't forget to add automobiles as they do all the same things that have been mentioned - an awful lot of people are killed by them every year. Oh, and blame the bullets for the direct exposure health thing, people aren't generally beaten to death by guns - it's usually the bullets! :rolleyes: :cool:

I'm addicted to lots of things so it's been a while since I went liberal. I guess it doesn't help my dad wore a gun to work and had to use it a few times. Bullets make handy high speed billy clubs. I've shot a few guns to know the rush.

Yes, lead, the gift that keeps on killing (http://www.wkbt.com/Global/story.asp?S=11870530).

Forget all the lead that has been sprayed all over the world, what about those depleted uranium sausages used on battlefields we didn't take and hold? Well, I got to ask a Warthog pilot about that once at an airshow and was told whenever the gattling gun is fired, it records the Lat/Long, and later, when they can, a cleanup team is sent in to find all the radioactive bullets sprayed all over the place. And I told him about my Bridge for sale.

I took a quick picture to show the relative size of the 30mm round used by the A-10. From right to left: .22LR, .45 ACP, .223, .50 caliber, 20mm round, 30mm round. Probably a good idea not to be on the receiving end of one of these rounds...

I remember reading a real story of a desert storm tank operator who mistakenly forgot to switch guns and fired the largest round (50mm??) at an Iraqi soldier who was simply split in half. The soldier talked explicitly about the psychological toll of that moment and the effects that committing murder had on the troops. Of course the government keeps a tight lid on statistics. No need to frighten the revenue stream whom continuously fund the very profitable war machine.
