Congratulations, los.

This really comes as a complete surprise. I'm stoked.

All the entries were superb . Malamute's photo tells a thousand stories. Not really sure why I took it, but CONGRATS to all the participants.

The featured Model 40 is my every day carry. The factory stocks have been recently replaced with a rare Sambar set. I took a photo and entered it in the June contest.

BTW, here's the photo I originally wanted to enter in the May contest but my daughter picked the other one.

Oh my! I just got an email from Doogle that I had posted the wrong pic for May's Winner.

Sheesh!

Good for you, los. I apologize for the mistake.

Congrats, los. It's a good setup...>

I think your 2nd version of the setup has a better angle on the revolver itself, but of course it lacks the aspect that attracted me to your winning version - the reflection of the rounds that tied the ammo to the weapon via colour.

Thanks.

Well, that's interesting and I had not noticed it, Doogle.
