Muzzle Flash 10mm be damned!
Something I was experimenting with, I was shooting in low/artificial light the other day, I won't use my Desert Eagle or any other 44 or 357 magnum, in low light, as a matter of fact, the .40 my brother has was as bad as the 357 magnum in muzzle flash, I shot 38 spl, 9mm, 40, 45acp, 3 44 magnums, 357 magnum, and a 21 inch barreled 12 gauge.
in reverse order worse to least.. 44 magnum, 71/2 barreled super blackhawk, 44 magnum, 6 inch barreled redhawk, 44 magnum desert eagle, Sig .40, 357 magnum, 4 inch barrel GP100, Para Ordnance BigHawg, 45 acp, 38 spl +P, GP100, 9mm ruger P85, 12 gauge open choke #6 game loads, (also most damage to target at 15 yards.
The muzzle flash of the first 5 pistols will keep you from getting a quick second AIMED shot. It gives you a flare that kills your vision for 2-3 seconds minimum.
I'm sold, shotgun..... quick second shot out of the second barrel was very easy. sorta like a blue puff out of the muzzle.
I'm actually gonna re do it on video and make a short Youtube type short movie on why I choose what I choose for home defense.
