For all the sheeple, this was taken using shutter release on tripod and my finger is OFF the trigger. Enjoy :)

Sheeple! - all the folks who holler - Baaaaa..d form.

I once worked in a convenience store--midnight to 8:00am... on Friday and Saturday nights... One night I was facing a gun from about the same distance away... can't say I like this image, but I recognize the technical expertise to get those details of the barrel. Just not my cup of tea...

Thats the best way to hold it, so that when shooting you reduce amount of muzzle rise and felt recoil, helping stay on target.

Nice stance, I hold mine the same way. And good finger control.

Nice detail. So, is that a Colt Defender?

You mean you don't hold it sideways? :shock: :lol:

Cool shot IMO, I like the illumination down the barrel.

Just set up my tripod, and aimed at different heights until the less was focusing directly on the inside hollowpoint.

Actually a Springfield Armory Champion. Equivolent to Colt Commander length.

Interesting pictures. The pictures aren't quite there yet for me though. Your hand is too bright in both of the shots drawing my attention away from the focal point which is very small in relation to the photo. Your hand is too much in focus in the second picture again very distracting. You being visible and what you are wearing is somewhat distracting. The gun is offcenter and not level (slight, and mainly in the second picture).
