    Found this picture whilst surfing around and thought I'd share. Pretty impressive!

    Let's see some muzzle blast or muzzle flash pictures!

    And the only one of my own I have for now:

    No it's not edited; the camera was set for a long exposure with a flash to light up the gun, that's why the hammer's still back.

    Every time a 'muzzle blast' topic comes up, the Mosin is always included.

    i do not have any photos, but my son tells me my [​IMG] .499LWR revolver shoots a flame about three feet in front of the muzzle in daytime and the cylinder/barrel gap has about an 18" flash.., i wonder what it would be like in total darkness.

    oooooh !! BTW we all know that BFR really means something different.., like.., "Big F***ing Revolver" :eek: ;)

    This one is actually me shooting the rifle. The camera was on a remote radio trigger. The rifle is a full auto 7.62 Para FAL.

    I wonder how much of a disadvantage the Mosin-NAgant's muzzle flash was in combat. It sure gave the Germans a nice target.

    How do you like that Beretta PX4?
    I love mine personally, and if Wisconsin ever gets some CCW law passed, I'm planning on using that for my carry piece.

    NMGonzo, I think you have confused muzzle blast with tannerite being blasted with a rifle.

    I will never get tired of M60's photos. Especially of that SBR .308. It's just downright cartoony. :)

    Speaking of cartoony:

    Really sorry I can't credit these photos to their owners. They were stumbled upon here on THR.

    Ain't got no pics, but...

    We were floating around in the Indian Ocean just outside the Arabian Gulf on the night of July Fourth, 1994. Every ship in the battle group was trying to "one up" each other, from tracers and small rockets to the five inch guns.

    Unbeknownst to anyone but the captains (and probably an admiral or two) an honest to goodness Battleship (NOT a destroyer or cruiser) was blacked out and sneaking up on our fantails.

    The sky turned this hellish red, much brighter than a sunset and it flashed like a camera strobe. The sound was deafening. I was standing on the flight deck and felt concussion, even as far away as the battleship was.

    These aren't guns. They're flamethrowers. And I thought blackpowder guns had a monopoly on big balls o' fire.

    Those guns get you two for the price of one. Not only can you shoot your dinner with them, you can then start the campfire to cook it....
