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 2 -

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

Thank you...

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.

Well done. Thanks for the videos.

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.

Looking forward to seeing the rapid fire video.

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.
