.44 Rogers & Spencer revolver

    As can be seen the muzzle flash from a blackpowder gun is really quite impressive, especially so when one sees how close the shooters hand is to it. In spite of appearances, blackpowder is not an especially hazardous substance to use, given that normal safety precautions are observed when handling it. See also the sequence of 16 photographs using this gun to show the effects of recoil. This particular revolver is a modern reproduction, not an original, see also this sequence in motion.
