I was going through a few piles (folders, rather) of digital photos and I found this one.

We were up at the ranch with a bunch of friends - gun nuts, all - and decided it would
be fun to see if we could capture a broad-daylight S&W 500 fireball on (digital) 'film.'

I believe we got this on the second or third try.

It's always amazing to see your hands disappear in a fireball ... a nanosecond before the
pressure wave, then heat wave hits you in the face! Each shot is ... memorable!

If you are addicted to that kind of thing - and I'm afraid it's very addictive - go with the
4" barrel - maxi-horsepower reloads help, too!



:eek: :shock: :eek: :shock: :eek: :shock: :-B-:

My son's taking the M44 and the Marlin Guide out this weekend with explicit
orders to light up the valleys up in the mountains!

I wish I had some pictures of my M1 belching flames. It will throw a good 1-2 foot flame out of the barrel with the cheap Olympic ammo I have. I'll be sure to get pics next time I take it out. ;)

One evening - probably down in the desert - I'd like to compare some fireballs of different calibers with a little Sony Handicam I have somewhere around here.

I have noticed that the little Glock 357 sig spits out quite a fireball and gets a lot of attention at the indoor range. Lots of powder behind that little 9 mm bullet I guess!

Nothing like to big boys in the pictures above though.
