Might be a bit OTT to issue a warning, but, plecolover, you're not making a great impression by mocking the spirit of this thread.

I will have to remain pictureless. I have never been comfortable having my picture taken. Even as a kid I hated it. BTW - nice fish!

I have been using Picasa for the past coupla years and I find it quite user friendly. The only issue I have right now is that they have linked it to Google+.

Why not attach it to the post? Alternatively, if you want a quick and easy gallery to link to, use dropbox. I'll send you a link or you can use this. Note: I don't think this allows hotlinking images - that's becoming something of an internet no-no.

You guys have been busy here, still missing a few hundred pics...fish people must be camera-shy. At least two of you don't look at all like I imagined, You look much younger, I guess your experience makes you seem older and wiser. :YMAPPLAUSE:

nope, we went to a shooting range to celebrate a friend getting married.

unloading the big bores and killing things like clay pigeons and random furniture seemed like a good way to send him off to lifelong imprisonment :D

as far as I remember it was a regular shotgun; but since I'm extremely lefthanded I can use righthanded guns "the wrong way".

I got a couple of friends with this hobby, so a few times a year I keep my gun skills up ;)
the biggest drawback is that occasionally I hit myself in the face with an empty shell; cause those pop out the wrong side.

for example; when using a friends AK47 I now wear goggles.
damn shells are hot! first time I scorched my eyebrow off .....
:lol:

left handed guns are rare, at the gun club too.

There is an increasing trend for topless males in this thread. It's very tempting, but I shall avoid following suit! :-) Great thread.

it's kinda creepy, and no, I won't join that trend either.

you need to catch me unawares in Thailand or some other tropical snorkeling/diving place to catch me topless anywhere outside the bathroom or the bed.
