What happens when you visit a gun range with a .40 caliber Sig Sauer SP2022 pistol and a Vision Research Phantom v611 slow-mo video camera? Bullets moving like molasses. See a variety of angles on the shots we made for The Oregonian/OregonLive’s series, Toxic Armories, which revealed how poor maintenance allowed dangerous lead dust to accumulate at National Guard firing ranges. These images were made outdoors, and our shooter wore gloves. Turn up the sound for the soothing strains of classical Pachelbel’s Canon.
