#26, Nice B&W pic...also reminded me of a spot I hunted in one of the few snows we have down here. Mostly we just get ice and slush LOL.

I liked singlesix's antique shade of light with some classics.

But Renny's pic of an old blackpowder pistol takes the cake. Combine that with a perfect background and well supporting props earns my vote.

Sorry guys I tried and tried to get a good photo of my ultimate stainless colt king cobra but after about 50 pictures and narrowing it down to about 5 good ones I could not decide which one in time LOL

It is hard to take a picture of a mirror I found out real fast LOL

I voted for Het because he had a photo almost just like one I made of the colt king cobra but I had a stetson hat and no boot or shirt in the picture.

That's about where I was at...pick a good photo I made then look at the photos entered and find out Het's looks way better than the one I made LOL

Oh well back to the drawing board with that colt for next months contest and I'm already working on some new photos for it today

...a very good photo. Crisp and a good mix of grey tones.

I absolutely love the use of the Dead Man's Hand in that photo. It makes me imagine a Derringer sized pistol being pulled in the middle of a heated card game.

It's a modern take on what Wild Bill Hickok went through in his last moments on earth.

Kudos to the photographer.

Nice work Renny.

G'day. A shotgun and golf clubs. Handicap! what handicap? The one liners are endless. A nice photo with some humor.

I have to admit this month it is TOUGH. Some really excellent photos.

I'm still shocked that last month the photo that was voted in had the subject out of focus

This month we have a lot of serious contenders!! Great work everyone.

I took that photo and that was the point of the pic. The reflection was the main point of the pic.

Sorry, my confusion... I was thinking of the runner up, Benny's photo. The Beretta was totally out of focus (and not in an intentional way).

Sorry if I confused anyone....

Looks like Renny's taking the lead. I wish I could have a copy of that pic to hang in my reloading area. That's how much I like it...
