I don't see what Nikon has to do with it. He was using a Canon.

For me, bullets instantly neutralize any differences between camera brands.

Beaver fur?!?! I dunno about that one LOL! But I would go for an 82mm lens cap with chrome spinners. That would be sick!!!  8)

Why you guys wouldn't be "profiling" would you?! ;D

I have a concealed carry permit and a Beretta always within reach, but unless they are there just to mess with me, they can always have the camera. I figure when they pull up, the camera becomes State Farms! ;D

I wouldn't do anything. 1) I wouldn't be shooting with one anyway, and 2) the punk can have it!

Canon 5D2, 7Dv2.03, 50D, 40D, T1i, XTi...XT (& lenses, flahses), various powershots... You get the idea... I have a problem. :)

Wife shoots Nikon, D7000, D7100, (lenses and flashes)... we constantly tease each other that our cameras are better than each others!
