I was going through some videos I took at the range and ran a couple of segments frame by frame. This is a picture of my fal pistol, if you look closely you can see a jet of flame coming from the gas vent hole on top behind the front sight, you can also see the flaming exhaust inside the handguard from the gas piston. I was wondering why my hand got so hot shooting it!!

That's something else!
With the gas vent hole on the top, that's logical but I'd of thought the gas tube was tighter than that.
Which brings to mind one of those what if's -- load with a faster burning pistol powder for the short barreled ones. I only know enough to be dangerous -- would this work?

Winn, the fireball is half the fun of shooting this thing!!
this was barnaul ammo, it is great for flames and concussion.

Must have been why you could smell hair burning and knuckles are now bald :biggrin:
Very cool photos
