How To Properly Photograph Your Gun


Before you begin:

 

  1. Make sure your firearm is unloaded, pointed in a safe direction and keep your finger off the trigger. 
  2. Locate a plain and clean background if available. You can't go wrong with a table top or kitchen counter.
  3. You can use a cell phone and either submit your gun via your phone or email the photos to yourself to upload via desktop or tablet.
  4. Make sure you are in a lighted area. 

 

What photos are needed?

 

  1. RIGHT SIDE: Lay your firearm on the surface on its left side (your left) to photograph the right side.
  2. LEFT SIDE: Lay your firearm on the surface on its right side (your right) to photograph the left side.
  3. DETAILS/ACCESSORIES: If you have a detail you want to highlight, accessories or any damage on the firearm, you can use the 3rd photo spot to highlight these features.

How to Submit a Selfie
 

Submitting a selfie or photo is easy! You can either submit a new photo of yourself or one you already have. 

 

Here are some helpful steps:

 

  1. Make sure you are the only person in the photo.
  2. Headshots work best, or torso and up.
  3. Ensure the photo has good lighting.
  4. Plain backgrounds work best, or an image like the below is also acceptable.
