Is it a video capture or a still picture?

I'm watching the front sight not move against the background throughout the firing sequence. Nice trigger control.

I turn green every time I see a good pic like this that someone has captured. I had a digital still of my brother blasting off my Remmie in twilight. The muzzle blast illuminated the side of the barn, onto which his shooting stance silhouette was superimposed. Lost it in an HD crash

At the Texas Muzzleloading Rifle Association shoots in Brady TX, we shoot ml trap at night. You really ought to see the fire that comes out of a shotgun barrel at night.

Interesting. Be sure to clean that pistol well after the BP experiment.

Yea Fastforty, she does hold pertty good. She was shooting a 50 yd target
and that shot was a "9" on the standard NRA pistol target. The pistol is
balanced and holds well.

Did she find her abilities were a "gift" and/or has she trained into it, and to what degree?

Was she "always" a champion shot, or did it come with time?
