Hi Guys and Gals,

Bryan asked me to share some of my gear pics here, so I thought I'd start with my favorite, the centerpiece of my humble collection, my Webley WG. But first, let me thank my lovely sweetheart for being my awesome photograher and greatest supporter.

This was our first Indy photoshoot together and she amazed me with her ability to match these screen shots. These photos remain my favorite of all my Indy shots.

This is the actual revolver that is pictured on the IMFDB "guns in movies" site. The "profile photo" shown there was taken from the picture of this revolver as it appeared on the Collector's Firearms site.

Though my WG fits the bill perfectly for me, I have to say that my model is not 100% Screen Accurate. My WG was not manufactured with the metal piece in front of the cylinder like the movie version weapon.

I hope you enjoy these comparison pics alongside the screenshots from Last Crusade.

Thanks for looking, and my final thanks go to Collectors Firearms. They have excellent customer service and awesome guns.

Those are some great shots, Michael. ;)

You're really lucky that you've got a gal that likes you dressing as Indy, dresses and Marion, and loves your gun collection, as well as supporting your hobby. ;D

Of course with me and Mike (Chewie), he could buy as many hats and Indygear as he likes, and he'll have no complaints from me! :D
