We need some of the gun owners from the OT board to look at it.
I think it is a hot spot from the muzzle flash...

I figured I'd post it here too... It was posted in the watch thread, but I'm sure most of you don't visit that one.

I am a gun owner. Without arguing this to the fraction of a millimeter, my opinion is that if you draw a line from where the rear sight is to the head of the target, assuming that this was a head shot, the white light is way above the trajectory. Drawing a line from where the muzzle is on the picture does not give you a proper trajectory, as the pistol wasn't fired with the muzzle in that position. I think that it's just a light on the range. Also, a muzzle flash would be yellow or orange, not white, and much larger.

No argument from me. I'm far from an expert on pistols. The only reason I thought the light might be from the gun at all is that it appears to be in the center of the powder cloud. My first thought about the bright spot was also that it's just a light somewhere on the far wall.

Did you use a flash?

By the time the case is ejected to that point, the bullet would be downrange about midway. I have watched after firing a bullet do its arc toward the target moving at ~1400 fps. You catch sight of it after about 25 yds.

^^^Wow. First look at that shot and I could feel my eyes react. Like they weren't sure where to focus first. Very cool shot.

Cool camera! You should pick up an adapter for that lens to use on your Nikon. The Helios has a pretty strong following in the Canon world.

thanks, ive looking around for an adapter but it seems there is a problem with the nikon F mount, you can either get an adapter without a glass but it wont focus to infinity or an adapter with glass and is a hit or miss on quality..
i will take some pictures with this see how it performs, if i like it, i will order one of both to compare..
