My buddy was taking alot of video of us shooting our black powder revolvers and I was able to copy this frame from one of them. The revolver is a Uberti Remington 1858 with 5.5 inch barrel. I could'nt believe it when I was slowing down the video and saw that flame! Amazing. :D

I guess we'll have to take your word for what kind of gun it is (because it is enveloped in FLAME). :rolleyes:

Why would I lie?? Oh, ok, I miss understood. Im sorry.

He's being sarcastic. :)

As the late Johnny Storm would have said, "FLAME ON!" :D

Great photo!

That would really light up a room at midnight.
If you didn't hit the guy he would die from fright, from the muzzle blast.

Looks like H110 powder... mine looks that way everytime I shoot my 460 or 500

By any chance, have you checked the hairs on your fingers.....if you have any left, that is?

Actually, when I saw this frame for the first time, I thought the same thing. I never felt anything out of the ordinary or anything different than my other revolvers. Wierd.

They sure do put out a lot of fire. This is just 17 grs in a 32 caliber.

Elmer Keith grew up around some of the old time gunfighters, it was said in a saloon gun fight..the first shots would blow out the lamps! Must of been a hot time in the old town that night!

I went back and played around with the other videos and was able to find this frame as well.

ASM 2nd Model Dragoon loaded with ONLY 30gr 3f Goex!!! If the ball doesn't hit the bad guy, he'll have second degree burns at least at close range.

kwhi43.......how do you post those pictures in sucession like that. Thats really impressive. Is it a few frames of a video back to back? Or is it too complicated to explain via typing?

I've seen flames before, the first thing I thought: Where's your eye protection?!?! :eek:

January 29, 2011, 12:23 PM
It is video frames put together as a picture.

January 29, 2011, 01:00 PM
Ok, thank you. I'll play around with it.

By the way, I knew Elmer well. He was borned about 50 miles east of me
here in Kansas City. I stayed at his house for a week in Salmon Idaho back
in 1964. Great guy, he lived it. He was a little different from most folks tho.

The shotgun is with 80grs FFg, the Remington only 20grs BP

Great photos! Now I know why I don't hit the bull . . . . there's too much smoke and flame to see it! :D

Really some fantastic photos fellas . . . thanks for sharing with us all! :)
