    Is this a photo of an old photo or is this a new photo taken recently?

    New, I think. The gun handle looks like plastic, and not enough grain. Might even say the lighting is 'modern'

    It looks new to me. The softness/glow does not look like it was produced by an old lens.

    Best,

    Ok. You nailed it - I'll have to try a harder one next time.

    It's my stainless-steel Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum. The photo was taken in my house and the date - whenever the exif says it was but definitely last year. Heck i only bought that gun in 2006.

    Yep the gun gives it away. The .357 shells laying next to it also. If they were .38s would make it more difficult to tell.

    if you were a S&W owner I would have expected better results, but not bad for a ruger.

    I id'ed the gun before I even read the post, so that one really gave it away. Good try, though. To pull it off a little better, I would try an older looking model like a Blackhawk or Vaquero, with either .38 or .45LC shells.
