You have no idea how hard it is buying even a toy handgun in London nowadays...

Lit using spare lamp from front, ambient light from ceiling bulb. Cloned out some distracting glints around "victory" and played with the saturation and levels a little bit to get the gun a bit more metallic. Couldn't get a good blur on the trigger and keep tight focus, so emphasised the motion blur on the trigger finger with blur tool. Neatimage worked well, emphasising the metal and making this look less like a toy, so kept that in. Bit of dodge and burn to improve light on "victory". Crop, resize, USM.
