2fast4u, leaning is ok, the plastic it sits in has a bit of excess tolerance and sometimes it does in fact lean. However, bent is something I'd ask Ruger for a replacement for and swap it yourself if Ruger'd let you.
TnR, I didn't use a flash on those pics, used a D50 or D80 with a macro lens and had a lamp setup over the 'scene'. Just happened to be a little harsh and at the wrong spot at the right time. Never noticed how blatant it was until now
.....then again, my father took the pics....my mother OTOH, is a photographer full time
