    OK, I am going to run a Contest, the winner of which will recieve a Vintovka Obrazets 1891/30 Goda.:eek:

    That is right the Winner gets a Mosin-Nagant 91/30.:D

    Now that I have your attention, the rules are simple but the challenge should be fun.

    The Contest is open to all Supporting Members and Members with a Minimum of 200 posts and be 21 or over, the more participation the better this will be.
    You can enter as many times as you like.

    Minimum of 25 separate individual entries.

    This is going to be a Photo Contest, as everyone enjoys Gun Pron.
    Photos should be taken since the start of the contest,Today 05/17/2010, and include a Date Stamp.

    Pictures of Guns, Guns in action, such as the Shell ejecting, Muzzle flash and, if captured, bullet leaving the barrel and etc. Photos of that sort. You get the picture.:cool: Photos of your own firearms, do not grab from the Interwebz.

    The Pictures will be judged on Clarity, Lighting and everything that goes into having to make it a good photo.

    This should get people out to the range or outside shooting and will get the family involved, as someone needs to take the picture.

    Once the contest ends the pictures will be Judged by myself and RugerShootinGal. All pictures submitted will become public property and no copyrights. The Best Photos of the Bunch will be compiled and made into a 2011 FireArmsTalk Calander. This Calendar will be given free to all who entered.

    This Contest will end on June 30th, 2010 at Midnight EST. Winner to be announced on July 4th, 2010.

    Bump. Time running out.

    You must go and pray before the Doors to the Altar of Tango young grasshopper.

    For there you will find the knowledge that you seek.

    Really cool contest idea Shihan!! *respect* to you and RSG for this one.

    Post the Photos in here and I will save them into a contest folder labeled with the contributors name, so I know whose is whose.(Grammar cops can nick pick if I am wrong there.):D I only know American, no nothing of English.
    I am hoping this gets people out and shooting. You have plenty of time to get that just right Photo.

    I have a few questions.

    Is there a limit on the number of entries from a single user?

    Does the gun have to actually be mine with me shooting or can it be a friend shooting his gun while I am taking the picture?

    Can the image be photoshopped at all? I'm not talking about major stuff just things like making a photo that is colored fade to B&W toward the edges or other effects that don't change the subject directly.
