That didn't even make since. Obviously you didn't understand that i said "consider me over it" and you have to egg **** on by saying "Typical, you have nothing to say so you change your tune". I think your head is clouded from letting that bulldog mouth overpower that puppy dog ass. But please continue, I already made myself "look like a fool" so what do I have to do but let you make yourself look stupider. Please continue...

Sorry I missed this, but I don't own any guns yet anyways. Thanks for the update, maybe I'll head that way after the hobby shop tomorrow (have to replace my turn signal bulbs) I'm actually just looking for a nice interesting place to finally take some photos of the car.

Well, the snow, even on the grass, is pretty much all melted by now, but the Yorktown waterfront is always good for pictures, especially in cold weather.

Try downtown Norfolk. A few parking garages have a spectacular view.

Well, anyone wanna get some shots tonight downtown or possibly tomorrow?

I have a Canon 30D with 17-35mm and 70-200 Canon L (yes I know I have a big focal gap )

Yeah, but on a 30D it's not a gap I'd worry about. I had a 28-75 Tamron to fill that gap (I shot sports, L telephoto glass is $$$, have to save money on the non tele stuff), thought it would be super useful, but with the 1.6x crop that range just isn't that useful. I'd save the money and leave the gap. Maybe get a 580EX instead (or 50 1.4, it is nice to have one very fast lens)

I can't tell you how much I need a 580EX....well you probably already know. I would like to get a 24-105L though. To tell the truth though I would like to save and get a full frame body. I have too many hobbies though

I know the feeling. Once I stopped doing it for money, I sold everything except my 20D and 17-40 L to pay for car stuff (or was it gun stuff...I can't remember...though speaking of which I'm going back to the range soon lol). Every time I take a photo indoors I miss my flash.
I kinda want a 5D Mk II, but the $2,700 that gets you a camera that will break in 6 years or my next THREE planned firearms purchases which will each last longer than my lifetime. It's hard to justify.

I know what you mean about the indoor stuff. I try to avoid it at this point. I wouldn't mind picking up a used 5D body, but almost might as well buy new. I'm trying to juggle car mods, photo, bills and things for my apartment.

I'm sitting here debating, do I do the half-hour drive to the gun club for the second time today and shoot at the indoor handgun range (clubhouse is heated...to 66F...and the range itself isn't really heated), or do I stay here watching episodes of I Spy on hulu?
