A .22 caliber bullet traveling at 1167 feet per second slices through a Arizona state flag card. A 30,000 volt flash unit and chronometer custom built by Jasper Nance measures the speed of the bullet and calculates how long it will take to reach the target at a preset distance, the high speed flash then fires freezing the bullet. Cameras are setup on tripods, the shutters are opened for 13-seconds and the photographers quickly move to safety behind the firing line. The weapon is fired and Nance’s equipment does the rest. The photos were taken at night.
