    Must have been a remotely held camera. I can see a round reflected off the inside of the barrel. Be careful placing yourself in front of a barrel, remember the 4 rules.

    Oh, and you need to clean that barrel.

    Dang, you're right!!!

    Be careful with that round in the chamber.

    As far as photo editing software, I'm partial to Photoshop CS, however I suspect you don't want to spend a couple hundred bucks on it (and that's using an education discount). You can try Photoshop LE or Paint Shop Pro--both are good.

    Have fun.

    P.S. I'm kind of a camera geek myself. You can see some pictures of my 229 that I recently posted--they will display by clicking the underlined link in my signature.

    I may take some flak for this, but a weapon will not discharge by itself, so taking a pic in front of it, loaded, is no more dangerous than empty. Most/all AD's were from a gun that was empty, right?
    Now, if someone were holding it when you took that pic, well, I doubt your that naive.
    A weapon must be handled to fire.

    I gotta say, those last two pics where you can see the round in the chamber looking down the barrel... Creepy. I hope I never get that crisp of an image in any other circumstance!

    No disrespect to the original poster, however I disagree with the "no more dangerous" part of the above post. For me, removing the mag should always be followed by checking to make sure the chamber is empty. By removing the mag, even just for a picture, you could easily fall into the trap of thinking the gun is unloaded (or someone else thinking the gun is unloaded). Generally speaking, for me, it is a bad practice.

    Again, I'm not trying to be disrespectful to or judgmental of the original poster.

    Gun safety issues aside, those are nice artistic pics.

    I really like the one where you heavily edited the image for effect.

    (I have owned a digital camera for years but still can't exactly figure out how to use it except in full auto mode. Its the only full auto I'm able to have.)

    Could be wrong, but I don't think he did remove the mag. It looks to me from pic #2 that the magazine beside the pistol is a spare and he still has a mag in. And I agree that removing the mag could actually be more dangerous.... but I don't think rmac was saying that removing the magazine makes it safer; I think he was saying that as long as no one's handling it, it won't go off, loaded or unloaded, and since ND's always occur from handguns that we think are unloaded, it's better to *know* that it's loaded than think otherwise.
