I have a few outrageously long reverb presets which I have always thought of as just lush sounding equations.
It was nice to find out that there are some actual, accoustically interesting, gigantic spaces in the real world...

This is an old oil storage tank hollowed out from rock and lined with 18" concrete.

For hours of reverb fun, the impulse response is available at freesound, just waiting to be downloaded & popped into a convolving reverb.

The starter pistol will add its own colouration, so the impulse might need tweeked.
