**DISCLAIMER. I AM NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER. WAS JUST TRYING TO TAKE SOME DECENT PHOTOS TO SHOW SOMEONE MY GUN. IN NO WAY DO I THINK I AM A PHOTOGRAPHER, PRETEND TO BE ONE OR THINK I KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. THANK YOU FOR THE KIND WORDS THOUGH.**

Its the smallest things that you dont realize until you have edited the last photo and ruin a half an hour photoshoot.

eh, dont worry about it. Look at the Call of Duty games, backwards (or just incorrect) sights are very common and they still manage to sell like hotcakes!

no no no. the WORST things that video games STILL do is that they use left handed model guns. Counter Strike is the best example, and kinda the one that started it all. Their reasoning is that the game started out as a left handed player shooting a right handed gun. But when people switched it to right handed player, it just mirrored it, so it was right handed player shooting left handed gun. And with every version, they never fixed it. Brass flying in your face is cool I guess. And reloading bolt actions like a weirdo.

But anyways, many games followed this pattern and they still do this today:

Hey, at least you don't have the rounds backwards in the magazine a la HK "perfection". :D

The photography looks pretty darn good.

The lighting? ;) The disturbing square shapes on the white fur looking stuff? The lack of fill or catch lights? The use of a wide angle lens to make the butt look twice the size it should be? :D

Am I getting close?!

j/k

Looks great... well minus the backward mbus. ;)

Lol good eye. First AR build. Aka, budget build. Aka, had a baby at the time of building it so my money was sucked into a black hole never to be seen again. So had to pass on the 1:7. How could you tell though?

i skin goats as a side business. The blanket was one of the products from quite a few goats.

I stopped playing that awful game, COD, after they destroyed the franchise with MW2. Never realized they had the sights backwards. Its odd that they would since they model them exactly after weapons in hand. I think they might even do a virtual or 3D scan of them. So whoever they acquired the guns from is/are complete morons!

then again....this thread.... :facepalm:

Man you guys are ruthless on here. Im not a photographer man, I was taking some quick shots for my brother, nothin serious. calm down now. Crappy rifle? Lol. k

Sine when were blocked 10/30 round emags banned?

Can a rule be made that you can not use the term FML on Calguns ?

Why not? Is it popular here? I dont frequent this forum very much. mainly because of the D bags that plague this place...

Ummm...ya they do. I didnt say COD did. But a lot of newer FPS still do this. Including the new Counter Strike thats not even released yet.

COD isnt the only FPS out there you know?

heres a little list for ya of current popular games that follow the trend of having left handed gun models. Obviously, not every gun in the game, but a good majority:

Counter-Strike http://s3-llnw-screenshots.wegame.com/10-8972322314635814/8972322314635814_l.jpg
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. http://www.ggmania.com/pics/02/specials/stalker/stalker01.jpg
Left 4 Dead (german exclusive version basically ported over all the skins from counter strike)
Black
Far Cry 2 (http://www.farcry2-hq.com/images/galerie/screenshots/screenshot_07.jpg)
Halo: Reach
Modern Warfare (though they dont have left handed model guns, they do this: "some guns have NO ejection port at all on their models, usually because they're on the right side of the gun, and even when aiming down the sight you wouldn't see that side of the gun anyway.")

Anyways....

ummmmm read sentences better. He mentioned call of duty and the backwards sights. I said:

"the WORST things that video games STILL do is that they use left handed model guns. Counter Strike is the best example, and kinda the one that started it all"

Meaning, that the mirroring of a left handed model gun, in OTHER games, to save time and money in the developing process of the video game, is a lot worse than what COD did with the backwards sights.

Well, the guy probably doesn't know what he is doing because he is new to real firearms and has only played around with paintball guns. I say this because that case on the bench next to him has all paintball brand stickers on it. I see SmartParts and Airgun Designs, but can't recognize the one on the far right.

So, come on, give the new guy a break. I'm sure he figured it out eventually, much to the photographer's enjoyment. :)
