Action shot - caught the bullet

#1

Post by AndyC » Sun Oct 21, 2018 4:43 pm

Took my GF to shoot a few guns and I saw a twinkle when replaying the video - sure enough, it caught her bullet mid-flight from her .357 S&W just before slamming the plate down:

That is pretty cool.

Excellent! And the shot was good, too.

Not on film... an indoor range I used to shoot in was dimly lit and the targets were lit up from the shooting benches and walls... so with a 45acp it was like watching tracers fly through the night!

Impressive photo, but check out all the holes in the beam above the plates.
Every range I go to I look at the barriers above and to the sides of the range and just wonder how in the world people shoot them.

To OP. Little muzzle flip as well! I bet she can shoot better than myself! I hope the date went well!

My brother reloads his 45 for competition. He was shooting a course and the judge said “I can see your bullet going down rang”. My brother smiled and said “I know.” He carries different ammo for self defense.

Riding the recoil of the M109 155mm self-propelled howitzer was great fun. Standing outside of the cab and watching the bullet go down range was great, too. And, yes, it is much more violent than it looks.

Good shot by the shooter and photographer. I like watching Hickok45's videos when he is shooting the gong with a large caliber pistol. Many times you can see the bullet approach the gong if you watch in HD.

Poor muzzle discipline and poor trigger discipline mainly.
