    Wow first you want to put a USFA SAA to tease now you put P7's, you are cruel. I got to wipe the drool off my keyboard. If you own all those I am jealous.

    The P7M8 was the best shooting 9mm I have ever shot and would love to own another one but I also want to buy a SAA 45LC like the one you had pictured in 4 3/4 barrel.

    Why do you say no flash?

    Absolutely no flash. Not under direct sun light either.

    Avoid any reflections from light source if possible, in this case, you can see reflections from my white plantation shutters on the spare magazine.

    BTW, this is a P7M8, not P7.

    Those P7's remind me of when the New Jersey State Police adopted
    them in the early 80's. Several trooper's shot them selves, usually
    while re-holstering. One of their instructors shot himself in the
    hand while instructing recruits. They were nick-named "staple guns"
    after the noise made when safety was squeezed. They have now moved
    on to another brand.

    Out door, sunny day in the shade, low pix.

    It's hard to avoid reflections on Royal blue finish, but managed to show details on this unfired piece.

    On my desk, old cellphone camera, out of focus, but light was good from half closed plantation shutter window.

    As for showing fine details, "Loanman" on this site did some great jobs using his close up lens.

    Usually we see picture like his on watch collector sites.
