Default BANG! .45 Photography Fun!

Hey everyone! Was out at the backyard range shooting my .45 the other day and my fiance (who could have been a pro photographer as good if not better than me if she'd wanted) came out with my camera. I was shooting my Colt Commander .45.

I found a couple of big plastic jugs that pretzels come in from the "big box" retail stores that were in the trash, and I was in a recycling mood. So I filled one with about 4-5 gallons of water and took it about 10 yards down into the range to see how my Commander loaded with basic Blazer Brass would handle something other than paper. The results were nothing less than fun and awesome, I hope you agree. Much thanks to Jennifer for the awesome series of photos that I spent a little time in Photoshop animating into a .GIF file.

Just a little something to brighten everyone's day and perhaps convince one of those "why should I buy a .45?" types to take a second look.

Thats allways fun,....but it's more fun if you try out some of the exotic self deffense ammo on water jugs, like Glaser safety slugs, Magsafe swat or Extreme shock AFR, they'll make those jugs explode!
Of course it's not cheap,.........

Cool beans.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
