    This photo is so well framed and set up.

    Maybe a print, a frame and a spot on the mantle? Mom and dad need some company up there.

    In my experience, the pow performance of the GPO is mount dependent. On the dimple, it dives. -1 it floats well. No one here seems to complain about the pow performance of the BC.
