Nice. I like these shots. Clean and uncluttered.

What sort of setup were you using for the backdrop etc. or was this a tabletop shoot?

will,
real nice. i see we are alike(barrel length), we like to hit what we are shooting at. ever tried a thomson contender? yeah, i know it's single shot but you can definately hit what you aim at.

Extremely nice shots, and yes, I like the subject matter as well. You did a great job adding visual interest but keeping the focus on the main subject. The Vaquero is so reflective you can see your ceiling fan and windows in it. May I second Darren's request for more details on how you took the shots? I have been thinking about how to do something similar, only my examples lean more towards tired old relics.

Thanks,

Tim

Very nice shots! Here is my quick version with only the dining room light so the color is a bit strange.

Ruger Super Single Six, Sterling Silver Grip Inlay, Nickel back strap and ejector housing, gold plated trigger.

Hog Rider, on these as well as others that you have posted in the past, how do you achieve such clean and clear images???? Great composition on the series! Jay

These are outstanding! Love the detail, the props used and everything. Since I've never had any luck setting up still-life photos, I'm REALLY impressed!

Here is mine with better lighting, but it still doesn't have the crisp, sharpness of HogRiders, so what is the secret?
