Not gun related I'm affraid, but a photo I got recently which I thought I would put up. Not great quality, had to use the digi camera as you cant take the photo out of the frame to put througha scanner.

You can't fail to find me, with my infamous skin colouring I look like a friggin ghost! Hence the nicknames Bloodless, and Von Flinthoffen. :lol:

re

lol, believe me, I have got used to people taking the piss!
I have been to Turkey, Portugal and the likes and still come back white, I am as close as you can get to albino without actually being it; doesn't bother me though.

You actually have a point about night ops; I have to use **** loads of cam paint and/or a scrim face net.

Aye feel for you, and am in the same boat. I'm about as white as they come. I'm either white, or red (from sun burn), I don't think its physically possible for me to tan....

Camo paint is always a problem... I have gone to strickly tube instead of the "compac" setups. Always wear gloves because its easy....

Better not let Mel and Sub out at the same time, we might blind people. Heaven forbid we goto the range together with yimmy bad things might happen.

I'm from Texas, born and raised and live, I burn, burn, burn, burn- TAN. A little. I have ceased caring about my complection.

Yeah, that picture above is exactly what CA looked like when I was down there for the holidays! Man it rained a lot then, and it hasn't stopped. Which reminds me that I need to call my parents and be sure they still have a home.

Yeah, its odd for a Californian to not tan... must be why I like it so much better up here in Montana... I fit in better :D My snow camo is fantastic!

Funny thing is, it can be just as easy to see a black African as it is to see an extra white European in the dark.
The black skin actually reflects light well.

Hey, we might be on to something here. I am also a very light skinned guy, grew up surfing in Florida (burn, burn, burn...peel), and quit worrying about my complection after I got the first skin cancer cut out. Sun can't get ya with your ghillie on :)
