    Perhaps the shutter was opened and a flash, which was aimed at the area forward of the muzzle, was fired at the sound of the shot, and the camera's exposure was set for the flash. You would get the original condition of the gun (cocked hammer) burned in with available light, and the bullet stopped by the flash. There is some recoil shown in the pic (look at the frame, just behind the cylinder).

    Folks have noted the ghosting of the hand, the ghosting of the revolver, and the bullet, separately, but no one seems to have put it together. The ghosting of the hand is in a different direction and to a different degree than the ghosting of the revolver. The hand and revolver are ghosted, but the bullet is not. If the shutter was fast enough to capture the bullet, why the ghosting of the hand and revolver? Wouldn't that mean the hand and revolver were moving faster than the bullet?

    I think the ghosting of the revolver/hand happened before the strobe kicked in to freeze the motion of the bullet.
    It's some interesting and complex photography. I don't exactly pretend to understand it. Neat photo though.

    The shutter wasn't fast enough to capture the bullet; the shutter was open for several seconds. The bullet was stopped by the flash (triggered by either the sound of the shot or some kind of electronic sensor that registered the passage of the bullet - perhaps one sky screen from a chronograph).
