My plans are to take still-life photos of firearms, so I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for the right cameras and lens.

Tilt/shift lenses. Either a Canon TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro or a Nikon PC-E Micro-NIKKOR 45mm f/2.8D ED depending on which system you choose. I think Canon gets this more right than Nikon because Nikon has the functions offset from one another whereas it appears to me the Canon allows those adjustments to be made independent of one another.*

*  The Nikon PC NIKKOR 19mm f/4E ED can make the adjustments independently, but it costs more and is a less than ideal focal length for what you want to do.
