Of the two photos I took today (on my LG G2) I managed to see the bullet in flight! Timing it was helped by a long DA pull. I think its pretty cool that you can see the twisting motion of the bullet. Lets see your cool (and likely higher quality) range photos!



And no, there will be no more photos of the girl.

Nice and unique. Be sure and stand your ground. GD is infested with Pervs.

That appears to be the ejected brass flinging through the air. Still a cool picture though.

I thought of this, but I don't think so. My reason is that I took a photo right before this, and when zoomed in you see 4 holes in the previous photo, and 4 in this one, meaning the bullet hasn't gone through yet.

So this is your brass looking bullet tumbling towards key-holing then?

Gun is in recoil so the bullet is long gone. The bullet wouldn't be arcing that close, what you are seeing is the brass arcing out to the right and tumbling. She either missed or double tapped a hole. That's brass, which is still a cool shot.

Damnit guys! I was holding on to having a great photo! The round was brass-jacketed (been using Perfecta 9mm lately), but I suppose you're right.

I hope she didn't miss! That target was about 15' away and she was doing pretty good (especially since she'd never shot before).

What, is it a tranny ?

I've seen worse unfortunately

If the shooter is your girl I'd call it a double then, or else she'd cut you off.

My first and only time at a long range outdoor shot I was completely amazed looking through the spotting scope and watching 308 rounds travel all matrixy down the range. Very cool shit.

Sort bro, it's brass

Photo looks about 1/15 second exposure, which means that 9mm would have gone about 70 feet in that time frame, not the foot or so shown

It's the brass .... no cell phone is fast fast enough to catch a bullet unless the bullet is fired directly at the cell phone!

Wanna catch the bullet in flight ..... get the right equipment, and not a cell phone.

Cell phones really are poor substitutes for real cameras.

But I digress .... the masses are being led like lemmings down the 'cell phone cameras are good enough' path.



EDIT: Next time shoot video ...... if you are lucky and I mean really lucky and do a frame by frame search you might find a glimpse of the bullet. Firing a tracer round might help you spot it.

Ehhh what range was that? RSO needs to freaking get to work on cleaning that shit up.
Link Posted: 8/10/2014 3:26:10 AM EDT
That is clearly brass ejecting.

It landed me a job as CRSO at a local range and I kept the place fucking PRISTINE.


eta- There's no clean range like a range Managed by a Cav scout who's gone high and right, and a guy with Marine induced cleaning and range safety OCD.

local range does not allow cameras.
