    Great range picture of muzzle flash!

    Took my Springfield Champion out for it's deflowering this morning and my brother got a fantastic picture of a muzzle flash and what appears to be either the primer or the bullet ahead of the flash.

    Nice pic. I would be open to an explaination of how a primer could exit the barrel in front of or behind the muzzle flash.

    I'm gonna go ahead and guess bullet.

    Good catch, I'd guess it's the bullet.

    It was a cheap 50 dollar Kodak digital taken by hand at the right time. Go figure...

    Here is a crop I did in photoshop. I first enlarged the image doubling the dpi, then cropped in 800 x 800 section using the same dpi.
    Still hard to say for sure, but looks like it's possibly the bullet. Not a bad shot by any means, especially with a $50 digital. It took me try after try with my Nikon D90 ($800+ camera) just to get a muzzle flash pic (with no bullet in it), and I'm not exactly an amateur at photography. He got lucky!

    Photoshop? Oh, well, man, that explains everything! Just kidding!

    It's a good photo... My guess is it's the bullet with a visual of trail of the disrupted air mass behind it as it moves through the air at close to the speed of sound. Often times, depending on the air mass and humidity you can get a visual trail behind fast moving objects. You can sometimes see them behind jets as they are launched from a carrier.

    Uh, is it just me or are there several images of demons or ghosts in that blast???
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    That's a great photo and show that timing is very important. It's not much of a flash, but smoke that's lit up by the flash. The flash probably lasts 1/10000sec to 1/20000sec, but the lens is probably open either 1/60sec or 1/125sec. That's not fast enough to freeze the bullet and if the bullet travels 1000fps it would move 8-16feet. The trick is to not miss it completely, and there was probably a little luck involved since there is also a delay from the time you press the shutter and until the picture is taken.

    So it is possible that is actually the bullet?
