    I wish I knew how to take pics like that. I have a great camera, I just suck with it. It's a Nikon D50...

    Is that fiber optic sight for daytime use only? It works by light entering the plastic shell, right?

    adjust the shutter speed..those were taken at 1/15 with moderate daylight coming through the window and no other light source (flash, overhead lights, etc)...also, make sure you use teh right metering..try spot metering so that other parts of the image dont darken your subject matter.

    this is what i used, nikon 5700:

    It would probably be a fullsize since compacts and sub compacts are illegal in canada. GAY

    I'd probably get a 9 or a 40, but Im not going to lie the new 45acp looks tempting. Im hoping to try a 40 out tomorrow at the range if my friend shows up with it.

    I wouldn't call that block polished... id call it brushed, it looks good though. But if you want it polished go with a higher sand paper like 2000 to get it polished.

    I know a lil something about polishing metal.....

    mine's not quite a dslr..its about as close as you get without jumping to that level. its considered a 'prosumer' cam.
