My Desert Eagle was matte black.

(Of course I couldn't hold the thing still enough to shoot straight, and my dad didn't want it anymore, so we sold it.)

That figure on the far right is old school. I really need to dig out some of my figures at some point, I don't think they're up to the level of some of the ones posted in this thread but I was a bit of a perfectionist when I was collecting. I couldn't play for shit (also couldn't roll dice for shit) so I tried to make up for it by painting models painstakingly.

I think I've still a box full of unpainted miniatures somewhere...

Unless you are a very large woman (stature and muscles, not so much fat), a Desert Eagle is WAY too much gun for you. They are freakin' huge, and they kick like a mule.

The kick wasn't too bad due to the gas action.  the weight was horrible though.  Like six and a half pounds at the end of my scrawny arms.  Hitting the broad side of a barn was actually a questionable feat.  I could fire my dad's super redhawk with no problem.  I was more active then, so even that might be a stretch now.

That's what rifles and rests are for. smiley

You don't know fun until you play with firearms!

Seriously.  I grew up in the country as well, and my step dad's familiy had a pretty big ranch up in the hills.  Every few weekends the family and what ever invited friends would come along and we would haul our small arsonal (several sizes of hunting rifles, 6 .22's with banana clips, a couple shot guns, and a few pistols of various sizes) up there with all the ammo we could, and have a good weekend camping and blasting apart the country side.  It actually became my traditional birthday party activity growing up.  Tons of friends always came for that  awesome, for real

It's not like I didn't grow up around guns. When I was 13 I loaded trap at a range for a summer. I've shot .22s at targets. I have cousins that run the local skeet range.

I still get freaked out by a country of 300 million people who think it's normal to sleep with a .44 under thier pillow though.

a .44 under the pillow IS a bit odd.  Mine is a 9mm, and stays in the top drawer of my computer desk.

Schild -- If I'm not bringing the guns, that means ya'll have them there, right?  I was told that we'd be heading down to the border for some "target practice", and I want to make sure I'm prepared.  I already have my burrito scent, my sombrero, and learned how to say "We are your friends, would you like a taco?" in spanish, but it's all worthless if we aint got no shootin sticks!

I love the way her right boob, swinging away from under her armpit, puts a sense of movement into that picture.
The two oblivious girls on the bottom left and the way the protagonist casually has his left arm resting onto the empty seat next to him, accepting his fate with a cool, usually reserved for the braindead, offset the howling despair from the kid behind the bat quite nicely which gives the entire picture something of a Rubens-esque group portrait feel.

I love that pic. The little ginger kid at the bottom center cracks me up. She's probly thinking about My Little Pony while some shmuck is getting bonked by a two pound bat.

That is one of the most awesome pictures. So many little stories happening in an instant.

The guy in black calmly watching the scene unfold. Mr. Cool.
The kid in blue with the white towel has the best expression on his face.
Popcorn lady who seems totally oblivious despite her friend getting a lapful of nachos.
The lady in light green using the power of Jesus to compel the bat.
The guy in light blue who is trying to catch the bat (the headless guy).
The guy in the shades totally not protecting his amazingly cherubic child.
The woman in red watching the cherubic child in horror.
The cherubic child, imo the centerpiece of the art.
Granny ready to take one for the team.
The guy just below her ducking, great move. Probably a vet.
The guy in black with white stripes excitedly watching the scene unfold. Probably saying "damn!" right then.
The My Little Pony daydreamer, and her friend with a clue.
And of course the poor mick taking one on the chin.

From his shirt, looks like it struck him in the chest and the bat is torquing around to smack him in the jaw.

Had the picture slid to one side, forgot the awesome face on the kid with the rangers cup. Him and the towel kid bookend it well. Such a great picture.

Le Mans 24 Hour Race, Sarthe, France 1999. Not 'shopped. This is the second of three such flips, the first two being experienced by current Aussie F1 star Mark Webber. The astonishingly fast Mercedes CLR was so aerodynamically efficient that when enough air got under the nose of the car, it turned into a wing and generated lift. There's a bump in the middle of the Mulsanne straight, and at 200+ MPH, the car's nose was lifted enough by the bump to cause the unwanted aero effect. I missed this one which was in practice, but later in the race proper, the second of the three CLRs, driven by Scottish driver Peter Dumbreck took off near where I was standing and went some thirty feet into the air, before coming down in some trees on the other side of the track from me. I thought for certain that Dumbreck was going to be in critical condition - he wasn't hurt. Fortunately the car landed the right way up and the tyres of all things acted as the deformable structure. Mercedes wisely retired the third, surviving car.

Indeed, interesting to observe that nearly everyone in the left side if the picture have the same "omg, lean away" response.
I also like:
- the dude in white at the far right of the row, who looks like he is bolting out of his seat, or diving into the aisle.
- the person mostly obscured by "black shirt with white stripes" who has assumed the fetal position with one arm protecting his head.

Dude leaning away from his kid is due for some serious ribbing, and if mom sees it I suspect he sleeps on the couch for a week or so, followed by a regular regimen of child-protecting exercises.
