    If you have the gun legally and it's not posted as a threat or to incite the breaking of a law then I don't think it is.

    Nope, post pictures of all guns I shoot at the gun club, and ones I own, currently got a bunch of Marlin/Winchester underlevers on there, a Sniper used by the SAS, my two .44 Revolvers and my collectin of air guns, amongst many others.

    Even if you had it illegally posting a picture of it wouldn't be a crime in itself...

    This is probably true. Although you'd have to be silly to do this as it could be used as evidence against you, especially if you put certain comments with it.

    I know someone who posted a picture of him posing with a fake toy plastic AK-47 1:1 scale on facebook as a joke with his boxer shorts on wearing a helmet and elbow/knee pads etc,

    Someone must have reported it or something because he had the police on his door about it! Haha

    No, i have quite a few pics of me and my Remington also have friends who have similar pics up. As long as the gun is legal and you aren't doing anything stupid with it don't think there is an issue.

    True but I doubt posting a picture of it would be the best way to hide your other crime(s)
