After literally hundreds of shots, I have the perfect picture! A mid-fire (is that a real word) shot of me shooting my S&W M&P .40! It looks like a lightning bolt coming out of the chamber, You can even see something, which I am assuming is the bullet, streaking on the left side of the screen!

man you guys post fast!!! I had no idea the picture came out this cool, my GF was uploading them from her camera about an hour ago, and asked if she wanted me to get this one printed out. My jaw must have hit the ground when I saw the slide 3/4" back and lightning coming from the end!

One of those Kodak Easy share 200 dollar cameras. Nothing special.

I doubt it, she would probably sit me and say something like this, "Andrew, you know you have some crazy xgirlfriend, and........"
never mind

It'll even be cooler if you get one of your crazy girlfriends to hold and shoot the gun while you take the picture. During the sweaty summer months will be good with just a wife beater shirt on.:):D

I often wonder if the reason my local Wal Mart is always out of ammo, is because of me. ;)

Here is one where you can actually see the bullet. The casing is barely clear of the chamber.That shiny dot is not in any of the other pictures taken during that stage.:p

Was this yesterday? I was there on Saturday, man was it packed.

I want to try to get a shot like this, I don't think it will be to hard with a SLR set to burst. I have a D90 and think I can do it.

Nice, the brass is probably still in the magazine at the chamber at this point.

Actually, it looks like the brass is just about cleared of the ejection port. I totally believe this picture, as the mention of "stage" means USPSA/IDPA/IPSC, and a lot of guys there shoot bunny fart loads...koff...Chessratz...koff. :p

Nice pic, Andrew. :thumbsup:

you know you can get the same effect out of ur M&P by sprinkling a hint of powder in a primed case and striking it , no bullet required

I would get burned at the stake from the armchair commandos if I posted that pic here.

Kevin would get a list of 100 pointers on how to better correct his stance, shooting, and trigger control from just a picture. :D

I probably have pretty close to that down the pipe. Would have been more but its such a pain to find the ammo. All around great gun though.
