Default How To: Target Pulling In The Pits, Short Video Tutorial

I was at the range yesterday and was in the pits pulling for my friend on the long line, so I said "What the Hell" and recorded a video on target pulling. Unfortunately, I was woefully unprepared and only had a Canon 7D with a single 8gig CF card. Luckily I brought my tripod.

Anyway, it's split across three individual videos due to youtube filesize restrictions (2gig uploads; the videos are 1080p 24fps).

Part 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dXA9A5jY1E

Part 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSU2oa5Rs1I

Part 3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AF9qENgrevU

or

Playlist - http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...8F7FE5E77137D4

Since it was an impromptu thing, the videos are quite unrefined.

Excellent presentation and the Video quality is quite adequate. I was impressed with the evolution of the pits ans spotting techniques. Last time I pulled targets, 55 years ago at P.I., the location of the spotting disc placed in the bullet hole was flagged by holding a large metal disk on a pole over the spotting disc. The color of the the large disc indicated the score. More than once I had another bullet go through the large disc. And more than once I had more than one bullet hole in the target when someone fired on the wrong target. Thanks for posting this.

Thanks... A group of us are shooting a match Sunday and I am the only one on the team who has worked the pits. Only once.

I'm probably going to re-record a new video. I also need to create one to demonstrate pulling for rapid fire stages. I plan on shooting at a match in a couple weeks. I can probably record some footage at that time.

Good job ocabj! I've never been to Camp Perry and this was the one thing I was most worried about. Hopefully I'll be ready this fall.
