    It was FREEZING outside. Ok, not literally freezing, but under 40º for the majority of the time we were there, and like 500% humidity. The cold was pretty unpleasant, and the forecast said almost 50º so very few people dressed for the bone chilling cold. Naked Brian didn't shoot because he couldn't find 9mm ammo. He showed up for about 1/7 of the match though. :wavey:

    AB13 also was able to test out his awesome helmet cam! :rofl:

  3. Yeah, at least here it warmed up to almost 40º by the time the match was over.

    I have about 3 layers on and the house is 60º and I'm still trying to get warmed up hours later.
     
  5. Based on the preliminary scores, I came in 19th overall out of 85 shooters, and AB13 came in 11th overall. AB13 won the CDP division, and I was 6th out of 24 shooters.

    duuuuuude, you got some awesome photos Laurel!

    Bad news bears, I lost all my footage from the hat cam from today. I didn't format the new 4gig drive I stuck in it this morning. Flipping through the controls this evening, I accidentally hit "format drive" and erased all my videos.

    Oh well, getting it tweaked, should be good to go for USPSA in a few weeks.

    But those were some awesome shots, especially of that casing leaving the port and you can see the new bullet feed into the chamber, wow.

    fucking rocked out CDP division, 24 shooters of the 85 shooters there, and some noteable shooters like Rick, Tim and Scott J, OG 1911 shooters. Good day, given the field, I'm really happy were I placed. Some of Washington states best shooters, including some USPSA GM's in the building.

    sorry, little sauced...

    I'm glad you liked them. Some of the shots turned out pretty good, but they were all slightly overexposed. I think I'll mess with shutter speed next time instead of leaving it on a preset and see if I can get some clearer shots of some of that stuff. That case leaving the chamber and new round feeding was pure luck, but I'm glad I got it!:hsd:


    Sucks about the video footage, you looked really fast in it!:hs:

    I don't know shit about photo's yet, but they all came out great to me.

    I was showing some of the guys the hat cam video at the match, they asked me if I was holding down the fast forward button.
    The hat cam video makes me look 5 x faster than the hand camera.

    I messed with curves and stuff in photoshop to get the colors closer to where I wanted them. It took a while with the 47 photos I decided to keep. :hs:

    Now we know Yar's secret to looking so fast!

    I got that lamp at Montgomery Wards when I was middle school. That's about right.

    Was it a 1911 only match?
     
  24. No, but AB and I were shooting CDP, which is pretty much all 1911.
