OK, with all the dinner pics that keep getting posted, and the level of competition there seems to be in who can out-do the other, I thought I'd at least take a stab at the requirements for n00bs, and seasoned ARFCOMERS to improve their scores.


Deleted list items as my thread is a DUPE. See below for list items already compiled...

I'm certainly not the dinner pic expert, but take a look and read everyone's comments. That said, typically there's been a magazine such as Guns and Ammo, SOF, NRA Rifleman etc. in the pics that get the high scores... That might get dropped to Bonus Points instead of Required???

Hey - You got your bonus points for "half-a-cow-on-a-plate" the other night! Quit your belly-aching.

Seriously, this topic could use a guide of sorts to help everyone out. There seems to be a general belief that certain things get more points based on comments on each meal so I figured I'd just take a shot at getting the requirements defined. There are certain things that DETRACT as well in every case and I'd like to get them defined too.

-1 for you and your list.

Rusted Ace raised the bar.
All top shelf dinner pics feature active grenades.

I bow to the previous lists of which I was unaware...

As for this thread coming up once a week, I've NEVER seen anyone ask what the requirements are....

I was under the impression:

1. Food with sides.(Better not be vegetarian crap)
2. Rifle(Atleast one)
3. Beverage(To go along with the meal)
4. Knife.
5. Reading material.
6. Tape Measure to depict scale.

All other items(Girls posing, other toys...) are bonuses.
