    Castpic of the Month Topic Suggestions

    I thoroughly enjoy the castpic of the month thread. We have some good photographers out there and I also enjoy seeing other people's perspective of this hobby. I'd like to see if there are any suggestions for castpic of the month topics. Personally, I'd suggest the following:

    Antique Firearms - Showcase your rifles/pistols/shotguns that are pre 1900's. My antiques are fed an exclusive diet of lead.

    Gun Cabinets - there are lots of ornate and fine gun cabinets and gun racks out there. Lets see some photos of how you display or store your prized lead slingers.

    Anyone else have suggestions for something they'd like to see?

    I second it for flinters. (I don't own one, but I like lookin' at them.)
    Colt 1860, it just feels right.

    Hehe, I only have one recovered cast bullet. That's why the category would be so neat. A recovered cast bullet after its been shot into game is like a unicorn or some mythical creature!

    On seeker's suggestion. Ranges seems to me to be a decent choice.
