  9. I was 1-506th AAINF C Co at Camp Greaves 99-00 There aren't very many who know what Currahee means.
  10. Not on topic but I noticed your alias. Were you in the 1-506th? "Stands Alone"
  11. I really enjoy the whole process of filming and editing. Coming up with unique camera angles is my favorite part. With the 360° camera, it gives me lots of options. Thank you for watching and your kind words.
  12. I have some copper wire used as a stabilizer on the brim of my hat. The brim is too flimsy to hold the camera so it was required.
  13. I am trying to figure out how to make the picture in picture a little more viewable without taking away from the first person.
  14. Call Me the Breeze It wasn't my best outing but the footage is pretty cool. I'm still figuring out the settings on the new Insta360 One RS so a few of the stages are overexposed. This range is notoriously hard to film on due to the cameras being in the shade and the targets in full sun. First Person footage shot on Insta360 GO 2 360 footage shot on Insta360 One RS
  15. Data transfer is a pita but once it is done, it is done. I believe there is a way to export the data to the CAS Scoring app website and then send it to the iPads. In reality though, it is much faster to just enter them manually. Once you do, they are there for good. And then it just requires you to add new shooters at registration and verify the categories before the match. MAKE SURE and use the CAS categories and not the General. Not sure why this causes issues, but it does. If someone changes categories permanently (i.e. ages up) change both the general and CAS categories. If you only change the CAS category, it reverts back the the previous general category for the next match. Generating reports is a trial and error deal for each match. The reason I say this is because each match will have a different amount of shooters and will require different text sizes and orientations to make the reports readable. When in the reports screen, tap on the "circled i" icon on the right and adjust the orientation and font size there and click the "Override default settings" button on the bottom or it won't update them when the report is generated. If your match has the same amount of shooters generally, you can figure out what is best and set this as the default and then just adjust as necessary with the method above. Once you have the settings configured, click on "Done" in the upper right corner of the box, then generate the report to see if it is what you want. If so, export it and it generates the pdf. Let me know if you need any help with it.
  16. Greta Dee is checking the plumbing before the match. Enter at your own risk...
  17. We are now up to 35 registered shooters which means two full posses!!! REGISTRATION CUTOFF IS APRIL 16TH SO IF YOU'D LIKE TO ATTEND, PLEASE GET YOUR APPLICATIONS IN ASAP.

  18. 2022 SASS FLORIDA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP THE IDES OF MARCH HOSTED BY THE LAKE COUNTY PISTOLEROS AT THE EUSTIS GUN CLUB IN TAVARES, FL. Playlist: Special thank yous go out to Stingray for filming; Oakley Rose, Bellemy Belle, Jace the ACE, and Notorious Nealan for helping with the starting gong; Confederate Colt and JP Law for stepping in to run the Shootoff when I was shooting; Jane Deere for doing all of the admin and organization with matchups each round; and to all of the volunteers who helped pick brass and reset the targets. Without all of them, this shootoff would not have run so smoothly. THERE WERE 3 SHOOTOFFS Juniors - 16 & Under - all welcomed Top Ladies - Top 8 Top Gun - Top 32 The matchups were decided by every competitor drawing numbers. They were then matched up by 1 vs 2, 3 vs 4, etc. Odd numbers shot on the left and even numbers on the right. In the Juniors shootoff, we only had 6 shooters, so in the second round, we had 3 shooters. The one who drew # 3 got a bye into the Finals. The tournament was single-elimination, the first one to knock down all 25 targets wins, the center crossover must be shot last. In the case of the juniors, we had a slightly different scenario so as not to require them to reload the rifle for the last shot. They started with pistols on the outside, then moved to their rifle and cleaned up any standing pistol targets with the rifle before engaging the rifle knockdowns. Then cleaned up any rifle and shotgun targets with their shotgun before shooting the crossover. Ladies & Top Gun scenario was: move to the rifle first, then to the pistols, clean up any standing knockdowns with the shotgun (in any order), then move back to the center to reload the rifle to shoot the crossover.

  20. Most match attendees absolutely care about getting called up and receiving an award. I attended a match recently with about 200 shooters, give or take. There were 47 categories and 14 had only 1 shooter in them. This demonstrates that, given the chance, a lot shooters will op to get a buckle by choosing wisely. 14/ 47 = .297 | 29% of categories, or nearly 1 in 3, had only one shooter So, let's say that the categories averaged 3 awards per, 47 X 3 = 141 141/ 200 = .705 This means that from our theoretical calculation, 70% of match attendees got an award. (please note that these numbers are for arguments sake as I cannot remember the exact number of awards given) In my mind, this makes these awards almost like participation trophies. The next logical question is, how do we fix this? I don't think we should be awarding buckles to someone who did not beat any one else in their category. There should be a minimum number required for each category (like EOT does) and if someone really wants to shoot a specific category, then it's up to them to recruit enough shooters to shoot in it. If not, they get collapsed down until there are enough in the category to meet the requirements. Then, there could be some type of honorable mention award that they can go up and receive. Not a buckle, but maybe a poker chip, badge, or concho. Something they can remember the match by. Then everyone get's there name called, and the people who earned them get their buckle. This may make the awards take a bit longer but it sends most participants home happy. Which, in my opinion, is the real win for the match as a whole. We, as MDs, want as many shooters as possible to go home and tell all their friends how fun the match was. This will ultimately help future attendance.
  21. Make no mistake, I am a competitor. I just don't care what others think about me or the sport. I have fun and that is all that counts with me.
  22. My personal opinion is I don't really care what anyone's opinion is. I shot this game becuase I have fun. I am not out at the range trying to prove anything be thought of as anything. I shot to be with my friends and have a good time shooting a match.
