OK, I decided to make this one easier to try to encourage more participation.

The March, 2015 photo contest theme is "GUNS."

Post any photo with a firearm, multiple firearms, or shooting firearms as the subject or part of the subject of the photo. As long as it meets that simple criteria, pretty much anything goes.

Please keep in mind both when posting and voting on a photo that THE OBJECT OF THE CONTEST IS NOT WHO HAS THE COOLEST OR NICEST GUN(S), BUT INSTEAD, WHO CAN COMPOSE THE BEST PHOTO WITH SOMETHING RELATED TO GUN(S) AS THE SUBJECT. This is a photo contest, not a "best gun" contest. That being said, by all means, good gun porn is highly encouraged; just make sure composing a great photo is the main goal, not showing off your toys.

Remember to read the Photo Contest Rules: 
http://www.opticstalk.com/photo-contest-rules_topic39547.html

Specifically, the photo must be taken by you and must be taken sometime during the month of March, 2015.

I have an idea for this, but I'm not sure if I can pull it off, but I'm going to try.

Oldie, but a goodie.

This was my grandfather's Ithaca Mod. 37 20 gauge Pump Action Shotgun.
My dad taught me how to shoot clays with it growing up and then when I was able to purchase my own, well...I bought a Remington. but this was one of my favorites.

Sorry Ted But Skylar's shot brings up hunts from the old days. Along with stories that need to be told. All shades of brown except the green call in the center.

Thanks! That's the Galco braided "Cobra" sling I recommended when you were asking for sling suggestions for your Champlin.

Yes, Sky, it's a Dakota Model 10 in .260.

That is the sling I got for my Winchester 1885 when I was looking at it for the Champlin.  Just did not seem to go with the Champlin as well. 

It looks great on the Dakota...

I also love those Dakota 10's. Unfortunately, they are out of my comfort zone price-wise. Guess I'm relegated to #1's and 1885's. LOL. Great pics so far.

Well since I've still got today, I hope to finally have a photo in by this evening. May not be a winner, but I think it will be interesting.

There is one story that landed my Grandpa in the papers. He and a friend were out duck hunting on the Arkansas River in Ozark Arkansas and while in a boat early one morning waiting on the birds to fly in, they preparing.
 
Later that morning as the ducks and geese made their decent from all directions, my grandpa pulled up to shoot and then his buddy did the same, however in this case, barrels were crossed and his friend shot and hit the side of the barrel. Now there small dent in the side of the barrel from that successful cold foggy morning in Arkansas while two men were duck hunting.
 
I can't tell you why, but that is a story that I heard from my step-dad and aunt made the local news. They both have explained to me, that this story was shar3ed in the Ozark Spectator. I guess they possibly have a hunting or sports column where stories are shared with others in the community, but that was a different era in time. Some of you guys remember the big steel American classics that used to be on the road and being able to leave your keys in the car, back when you didn't have to worry about laying in bed recalling whether you locked your front door or not...a simpler time.
 
When Ted started the new contest, this is exactly what I wanted to use as my subject. I toyed with another idea, but I felt that reflecting on times past made a much better subject matter.
 
I hope you guys like it as much as I enjoyed it.
