Title: Picture of Ball In Flight
Post by: Frizzen on March 26, 2012, 05:42:53 AM
Went to the range today. Wife was shooting her 32 pistol at 50 yds. I had my new I-pad with
me and I wanted to try and get a shot of the ball in flight. I shot a little video and went frame
by frame and found it!! I have never been able to capture this before.

Now that you have it localized, need to stand out there and get a closeup ???
(LOL...just kidding of course)

Sounds like that IPAD has some good capabilities...

I've seen this before, .32 cal pencil hole. Most of the guys I shoot HP matches with use the .30 cal size pencils.   ;D

All joking aside that pic is pretty cool. I'd like to see one right when the ball/patch is leaving the barrel.

Here is one taken of me last year at one of our local shoots. You can see the patch and ball leaving the muzzle
