All Nikon. Some combination of a D700, D7100 and various lenses. I don't remember which I used for which. I have no idea what I'm doing and basically just take a metric shit-ton of photos trying different things and eventually some come out nice ;-)

Also, I do it so infrequently I forget what worked before. Those P7 photos were taken in 2010 or something like that. I tried to take some similar photos recently and failed miserably.

That's pretty much what I do.
Never taken a photography class, bought a Nikon D-40 and every once in a while come out with a nice pic. Hahaha

Like the Derringer and early revolver pics - but love the Garand close ups.

Still the greatest battle rifle ever produced.

If so, why aren't they made anymore or any modern country still use them?

Because well over 7 million rifles, and bazillions of spare parts were turned out for the rifle.

Why build more when several million of the originals are still active ?

Phillipines, and US military drill teams still use them.

A Phillipino office when asked why use Garands instead of AR's said " Because we don't want to injure or wound the enemy - we want to kill him. "

Charlie, thank you for sharing these as well as the pics you posted in other threads. :cheers2:

That first photo with the HK . . . my first thought was, "the rounds are backwards in the mag." :ROFLMAO:

Can you tell me more about the derringer and the cap-and-ball revolver?

Dear God, is this going to turn into yet-another "Garand's vs AR" debate thread? I pray not.

WOW. :pray:

Okay, I've got one more for you. What's the silver-color suppressor on the Ruger .22 Lite?

You have good taste in cameras. I have the D7000, my 5th Nikon since going all digital in 2001.

I really like my prime lens (85mmf/2.8) but I do shots like these with a 50mm f/1.5. These are a few of my favorites.
