I got myself an Uberti .44 Dragoon the other day and the pyrotechnics are pretty spectacular. :cool:

You captured that moment of firing explosion really well. I'd more likely to get the smoke and no fire.

I do like it a lot, especially shooting it offhand, though my grouping was a lot better from the rest. I need to use a proper bullseye target next time.

I was at Whipperdale last month with a new Club I have just joined.
Bellerby is opposite Whipperdale on the other side of the road.
