I really like angus lincoln's model 19-7 image...>

The shot is well lit, with the revolver and accessories posed well and set off against the simple blue background. The image has good impact overall.

There was something about the Jungle Carbine that did it for me. It must be the beautiful minty wood, and the difficulty of taking a full frame shot of it.

Had to vote for MrClean...that old Mossy 410 was my 1st shotty, and brought back a lot of great memories. Good to see she's still taking bushies down.

Texas Armadillo certainly submitted a great picture of a fine looking revolver. Looks to be an Uberti?

Although tempting to vote for myself, I had to give the nod to saulfields because I think that is just an excellent view of a .45 1911. It really accentuates that big ol' hole on the business end

There were many good pics but the one that made me say, "Wow", unconsciously was TexasArmadillo's. So, it got my vote. But, I say it every month, it's very hard to pick just one.
