***** Post-Challenge Update *****
Well, I intentionally made this image a bit dark. Purpose being to highlight the metal edges and pull out the shine. The title almost ended up being 'Glints'. I really liked the end results on my monitor. Seeing how this is my Grandfathers pistol I'll probably frame the print.

I like the way the light hits the gun but I still feel that this image is a bit too underexposed...didn't want to say 'dark' since that could be misconstrued as a commentary on your subject matter. I think a brighter image could have been more effective.

Focus and DOF very good. Find it a bit too dark

The subdued lighting adds drama to this image. Clarity is excellent as is the composition. Rate: 7

A bit grainy, but the layout and perspective is nice.

Picture shows darker than I would like...I lose the detail in the gun and the bullets. I adjusted my monitor, just in case, but it still shows dark.

Too dark. Otherwise, I think the composition is done well. This has potential.
