Anyways I know there are some gun guys here so thought I share a picture of the Marine Corps Brand New SAW Day optic mounted on the SAW.

Not sure what type of photography this is but I like how the picture looked feel free to critique.

not sure where it belongs either but it's a nice pic, some serious firepower
one nit pick would be to do something with the sling, either all in the pic, or out

Great pic (other then the sling distraction) and I would love to be able to rap off a couple hundred rounds off that! Great little weapon.

Yeah I saw the sling as well after, Didnt really set the shot up, we had just got done teaching the very first class on how to use the new Saw Day Optic, and the gun was on the berm and had a ton of heat rolling off the barrell. So I turned saw it and fired before the next student picked it up. Didnt really capture the heat coming off the barrell like I wanted but though the picture turned out good over all.

I like it! Maybe ditch the sling and replace it with a bunch of empty shells. That would be sick! I like it though, nice shot!

I like the pic and the weapon. Boy, has it evolved since I carried a SAW in 87-88!

PS CS5 should remove that sling in like 5 seconds. I would like to see the clouds a bit more ominous to set the fell of the image.

Really like the shot, would love to see one with the heat roiling off the barrel. A whole lot of water under the bridge since '79-'83.

Semper Fi!
