Finally got my Colt M-4 out of jail and to my friend's back yard. I like it. I may keep her.

More importantly, are you a pro photographer? Great lighting and composition on that table top shot. Canon or Nikon?

I like that secon picture. The way the light hits it makes it look like it was sent from heaven.

Thanks! I take the action shots and the studio work is done by the amazing Hiro Soga. Canon camera and lens (ID mark II, I believe)
This is what I get when I try to do what he does, in my kitchen studio:

Dude, you are not Hiro but your shot is still good, nothing to be ashamed of. Nice work. Photographing guns is not easy.

It would be easier with the kind of "tilt shift" lens the gun photos use which keeps the whole gun in focus.

BTW, boxed up that Colt today. Going back to the factory, sweet, excellent feeling M-4 -- in many ways my dream AR, but just too many bills and too many OTHER guns I am lusting after...

I had made a featureless LMT with the MOE stocks I like --
