Man, that's something I'm still trying to perfect myself. Assuming you have Photoshop or similar, just play around with the brush tool using yellow around the outside of the flash and white towards the middle, and use a smaller brush size as you move away from the muzzle. Then perhaps smudge it a little to smooth it out and add a little smoke effect for realism. If you have a look through the photos section, you will find heaps of pictures by various people that should give you some ideas. After all, it's not copying, it's borrowing an idea!

What I did personally was grab a Google image of a muzzle flash and do some work on it to make it a transparent Photoshop image (.PSD file). Now I can just import that file and add blurs/transform it however I need to.

It ends up being pretty versatile...allowing me to do shots like this:

and this as well:

Just a matter of transforming it, and adding the right amount of motion blurs.
