Damn that Razor - I HATE him.

I don't have a digital camera, or I would enter.

shane45-

If you have a regular 35mm camera (or any camera for that matter), I will personally be happy to SCAN, HOST, and POST your entry for you. The deadline is a ways off, so you have plenty of time to develop your pics.

Email me at: [email protected]

Note: for anyone else in Shane's situation, I can do the same for a limited number of entries!

If they were mine, I'd post No. 1, 5, and 6.

All I can add is that your work is pretty awesome! Please post these to Razor's right away!

Good luck,

Ron (guncollector)

I think Ichiro Nagata means "Scorpio" when translated!


Ron, thanks for your most generous offer - I may take you up on it, but it already appears I have very little chance!

I wish, LOL! Then I can actually buy a decent digital camera than borrowing my bosses, LOL.

The rules doesn't say anything about airsoft guns, LOL. "A. One and only one HANDGUN in the actual photo
This may be a favorite pistol, revolver, matchlock, etc. It must be a handgun." But I still have the H&K P9S and Kimber Custom if they decide to change the rules, hehehe.

Thanks for the compliment, guys. I took 50+ pictures and the only ones I deemed "worthy" of submitting are the above.

Ah, you are most correct. A true-to-form replica will photograph just as well as the real thing!

BTW, is that a REAL Steyr UMP in the photo background, or an Airsoft replica? I ask because I actually own the Steyr SPP (semi-auto version) and have never met anyone who owns the full-auto version.

Shane45:

Hey, don't give up yet! Don't forget there a prize for Second Pl. and we're working on one for Third.

Plus, it gives you a chance to show off your hardware if you know what I a mean.

Sorry to disappoint you bro, but that's another one of my airsoft replicas. It's "TMP" btw. But it IS full auto, if that's any consolation, check it out: http://www.airsoftextreme.com/videos/tmpdemo.avi (They also make an airsoft SPP BTW).

Scorp-

TMP is the correct moniker. Sorry about the typo.

Deaf-

I didn't quite understand your post until I went back and looked at my entry. The "camo"-effect in my photo is just digital hijinks. My KCCT has actually just the factory matte blue finish.

Take that pic with a knife, and requisite wording, and submit it!

ScorpioVI,

Where do you get "nonFMJ" ammo for the SJ action shoot? I don't want to blow $125 buying enough golden sabre JHP for the evening. Is there somewhere affordable & local you can recommend?

Thanks,

/TCP

What caliber? If you don't mind shooting lead there's gentleman at the local gunshows who sells .45 reloads, lead only, for $15/100. I've shot almost 200 rounds of his stuff already without a single malfunction. I keep forgetting to get his card though! There's another vendor who sells 9mm JHPs for $7.50/50. Highly reliable stuff too. That's why I'm going to the Cow Palace tomorrow, to replenish my stock.

Edited: I forgot to add. If you can't make it to the show tomorrow I'll be happy to pick up some extra ammo for you. You can reimburse me at the Action Pistol shoot.

Tell ya what,

I'm still not positive I can make it although I'm gonna try real hard. If you have enough ammo, I'll buy some from you tomorrow night at the shoot.

Is that OK?
