That first photo is pretty amazing. Very weird plateau fireball that seems to be lighting up the area behind it. That's gotta have something to do with the camera.

Thanks! That was taken at my super-secret BLM shooting spot! That particular Draco I bought from Glock Holiday when I detected the GB going South... Then when I finally tracked down my Draco from the GB (long story) I just traded it for a Springfield Loaded 1911. Draco's are fun, but I didn't need two of 'em!

I have to catch the flame from my Drake & the Lancaster. Maybe you want to share that secret BLM spot so we can shoot the perfect fireball LOL.

I don't remember if I was using it for this shoot, but I might have been using my fixed 50mm that goes down to 1.4 - that thing takes some amazing low-light shots! ...but more importantly is just using the "auto-shoot" function - hold down the button and take a series of 40 or so shots while my friend goes to town on the trigger - one of them is bound to turn out!

Wow, this is so cool I am betting it is photoshopped. Seeing a spiral rifling pattern in the fire is insane.

You may have to try night shots as the flame are more prominent @ night. The pics that I've taken on my Krink are from my Iphone only with no extra bells & whisles as a regular camera. PM me for night shot location. Vet

Why are some folks in the pictures shooting assault rifles like you'd shoot a blackpowder musket?

If its anyone on here, I'm not being a *****, but whoever they are should take this advice:

1. Square up your feet shoulder-width apart
2. Stand front-facing target
3. Bend at knees
4. Bend lower back, lean forward into weapon... take an aggressive stance.

If you're gonna carry assault weapons, shoot tactically... its more accurate and controllable, especially under rapid fire. Plus, it allows you to move easier.

Shiat, you ain't huntin' deer in the early 1900 Ozark mountains!

BTW: Nice fireballs.
