I came across this photo and thought it very interesting.
I think the gun is a Desert Eagle, if anyone knows different speak up.
I just thought it was a very well timed photo.

Bud, thats 1 flaming gun. An AR? Muzzle break I would guess? My AR doesn't flash that much!

Actually it's a bad handload. If all of that powder and gas is burning outside the barrel it is doing nothing for bullet performance.

In revolvers (which need no gas to re-cycle any action), slower powders have some benefit. Again, they must be matched to the firearm. I get good performance in my 629-5 with a six inch barrel if I load A/A#5 or A/A#7. Any load made with A/A#9 faces the same issues. Blue-Dot is good for revolvers, as well.

I'd load a few rounds made from A/A#2 and A/A#5 and have the guy try them. The flash would disappear, but the FPS would increase and the bullet would fly flatter.

Here are a couple of other "Interesting" Photos.

The 50BMG "Experience".

I enjoyed firing these rifles, but it's not something I want to do often.

The muzzle blast is horrible. Even ear muffs with plugs don't dampen the blast much. And the over-pressure will blow your hat off your head.

But WOW!!

Remember in basic training when they fired the .50 over your head while you were crawling on your belly in the mud under a ceiling of barbed wire? It's a wonder they didn't set recruits on fire :biggrin:

Wow , my friends .50 didn't throw flames like that. What kind of ammo was being shot?

Yes, that's true Bumper, but I always liked it when I was in Vietnam to hear that 50 on the perimeter. Having that kind of firepower on your side was comforting.

God bless the MA-Duece and John Moses Browning

Yup, they do sound cool (and distinct) from a distance. I have fired thousands of rounds through one from the turret of an M60 and never got tired of it. Nobody was shooting back at me on the tank range, luckily. :pilot:

Holy [email protected]^%$ ....I've really had the urge to someday get a Barrett, but I've never fired or seen one fired. Your comments and the pics just popped that balloon for me. However, it looks like it might be a good "one-shot" effect to clear out an overcrowded shooting range, LOL. Damn.....ya sure wouldn't want to shoot that thing around anything flammable, and I certainly wouldn't want to wear any darn nylon garments either !

When the Duece opens up, the AK fire stops...

The first pic is cool but I am calling foul. I think it's been photoshopped.

Where is the shell? And the slide hasn't moved. And look at the hands. No tension, in fact, his wrist looks like it's being pulled down from the weight of the gun.

Just my 2 pennies and I owe someone change.
