    Interesting...I at least hope the camera is sitting on a shelf, not being held by bubba.

    I hope.

    all I can say is I hope he's using a tripod and there's a concrete wall behind it.:rolleyes:

    Almost dead cameraperson?

    1) Finger on trigger
    2) Pointing at something not willing to destroy
    3) Gun is loaded with JHP.
    4) Shooter is a moron that needs to see a Eddie Eagle video
    5) No Eye Protection
    6) No Ear protection

    I do hope that was a re-load with no power or primer...

    Still... I don't like looking at it

    Expendable (cheap) camera on a tripod, most likely.

    THIS ONLY APPLIES

    If anyone is holding the camera:

    I've done some pretty stupid things, but... wow...

    I see nothing wrong with the photo at all.
    The caption could be better though.

    This is EXACTLY what every burglar should expect to see EVERY time they break into someones home.

    When someone invades your home you don't have time to toss on eyes & ears.
    And if I confront a badguy in my home, my finger WILL be on the trigger and there will be a hollow point (or a Glaser) in the chamber.


    As to the pointing of a loaded gun at a camera. :rolleyes: That's just one of the reasons they invented tripods, timers and cable releases as well as mirrors.

    From a technical point of view, I'm impressed. I could never get the lighting and focus on my Digicam just right to see the actual JHP.

    Beyond the technical details, there aren't enough facts know to make a judgement.

    Not 100% sure if he's sitting or standing and leaning way forward, but it looks like if someone were to get behind him and give him a little shove, he'd be sent sprawling.

    I agree. This was shot at 9:15 at night, with flash, and a shutter speed of 1\60 :)eek: seems kind of fast...) with an apature of 3.2. I guess settings make sence - with a flash anyway.

    I've taken a pic of a JHP down the barrel of my Glock, but I first removed the striker, which isnt hard at all to do.

    Properly done, nothing wrong at all.
    Improperly done, dangerous.

    Easy. I read the EXIF data.

    Most modern mainstream digital camera's record information about the settings and the camera in the header of the image file. Sometimes this gets destroyed in the editing process, but this one wasn't. Various programs can read and interpret the data... I use this one . EXIF data can reveal some interesting things, once you know it exists.

    The debate is that this may or may not have been dangerous, depending on the set up which we can't obviously see.

    One fact still remains:

    The bore looks squeeky clean! :neener:

    As long as there was no person on the other side of the camera I see nothing at all wrong with this pic. In fact it is one of the more interesting photos I have seen in a long time.

    My dear old Dad taught me to aim at the COM, NOT THE HEAD (or specifically the target's left eye) since they're smaller and more prone to movement... but it's quite an effective photo, no red pupil, clear focus of all items within range, details, etc.
    I agree with BluesBear on the caption, but that's just me being a nitpicker. Foul language (implied) is just soo tacky, doncha think? :rolleyes:
    It does tend to look like about a .75 caliber when looking down the bore in that fashion, don't it? Makes me wonder if it's a 9, .40 or .45...

    Really? Looks like a pretty vanilla "thumbs down" two-handed hold, although to be honest I've never looked at my hands from this angle. Isosceles guy, too, I see.
    This might be the most useful little nugget in this thread. Thanks!
