    My Sharkhunter and a Vintage Colt

    Here is my Sharkhunter and a 1890's vintage Colt Peacemaker I inherited from my Grandpa.

    I am trying to get my miniature "studio" set up to take some watch pictures, and this is one of my first efforts.

    Tell me what you think...

    Sorry guys, I didnt know pictures of guns were verboten. I removed it.

    The following link contains a picture of a vintage American firearm. Anyone who is offended by this should NOT CLICK THIS LINK!

    ....Sigh..... as much as it pains me to say it (GREAT old historic Colt there BTW!!!!!!) you need to read the rules. Number 5 is it? Any weapons (hand held at least) are forbidden in pictures on WUS.

    Not that there aren't many of us who appreciate a nice shot of watches and firearms together (have many myself). There are law enforcement, private security (the kind that goes into war zones ), military, gun collectors (like myself), machinegun shooters, competetive shooters... But it seems we also have a number of folks who are offended by pictures of weapons (it is after all, a very worldly Forum, and there are a great many nations, opinions, and sensibilities represented herein).

    Our Gracious host, Ernie Roamers has deemed this to be the rule for this subject. He goes to great lengths to provide this place for us to enjoy, and it is the least we can do to respect his wishes (seems I recall once posting a link to such a pic with a disclaimer stating there would be a pic of a firearm, and that anyone who would be offended by such should not click the link....). If you can, perhaps deleting the pic yourself would be in order.

    And welcome to the Forum!


    Sigh......
    Regards, T Bone.

    Nice shot. One tip. Shooting a dial face on is very difficult unless you have a black sheet and poke the camera through it. I shoot the watch slightly oblique and use a black card to reflect off the dial and bezel. Just hold it up and move it until you get the best position. Lots of trial and error but thats part of the fun. happy "shooting"

    VTailFlyer: That's a wonderful old First Generation Colt Single Action Army! You should definitely contact Colt and have the gun "lettered." They have all the shipping records for the old revolvers like yours. They can tell you how it left the factory and where it went. The letter just adds to the gun's value. It's a beauty!

    I sure don't get offended by that old cowboy gun! This pic is much more intimidating:

    Off topic Re: My Sharkhunter and a Vintage Colt

    Well guys, I guess one more link won't spoil the day. Hey, mine aren't even real Colts (that's on the list though....), but the Itallians do make some fairly decent copies.

    No watches in this link, just firearms of 1873 design....

    You wouldn't happen to own a Beech Bonanza Model 35 would you? Great rides that got a nasty reputation (and nickname) for their unforgiving natures toward newbie pilots (who usually bought them as status symbols). Created quite the Doctor shortage prior to 1982.
