    A Glock doin' what Glocks do

    A buddy snapped this yesterday using my SLR camera. One of the coolest real (aka no Photoshopping) gun pictures I have ever seen. Everything is as it happened, from the sand flying off the gun (which was not planned - I had sent it down in the sand so I could give him the camera), to the smoking shell. It's a G19. Figured I'd share...

    Thumbs up

    Cool picture but you need to down size it just a little.

    I do that on most pictures I post, here or otherwise. I've had people 'steal' my photos and use them on their personal websites or advertisements without my permission.

    No, I am a righty - regardless of the watch. That's just what's comfortable for me.

    I could barely see it because some gangbanger put a "Spartan" graffiti on it. Nice.

    Your photo? Didn't you "steal" it from your buddy?

    Great shot, only thing missing is the bullet coming out of the barrel.

    Sorry, not a 40 only a 9 mil. That would make for a pretty awesome picture.

    I guess if the camera can catch the empty, and stop the action with that kind of clarity, it could catch the bullet too. Have you ever caught the bullet in a pic?

    What kind?

    What kind of camera did you use? I'm just curious because I'm an amateur photographer who shoots weddings and some other things every now and then. I'm currently using a Nikon D90, but I think a D700 is coming down the pike as I have about 6 weddings lined up come May and June. Anyway, I think it would be darn near impossible to catch a bullet exiting the barrel. Most cameras can go to 1/4000 or 1/8000 of a second, but it would be an incredible strike of luck to catch the actual bullet. Just a thought...I'm sure someone has. I'd love to see!!!!

    i think on youtube they have some videos of super super slow mo for a lot of stuff. like a bullet hitting a water balloon and the rubber snaps away instantly..but the water is still in the shape of the balloon.

    edit: (if you wanted to check that out)
