I stumbled upon another mystery of the digital age. The mystery prompted the following note to YouTube:
You rock. But, oh my goodness, you move at a snail's pace! How is it possible that I can download a song from Itunes in 3 seconds, but it takes five minutes to upload an 11 second video to YouTube? Please advise.
I finally uploaded all of the Knob Creek video to the Pretty Pistolera YouTube Channel. There is lots of gunny goodness for your viewing pleasure. There are even videos of my mother-in-law shooting machine guns. It was fun for all ages!
Here are a couple new videos of our Knob Creek field trip. Check out the Knob Creek Playlist on the Pretty Pistolera YouTube Channel to see the videos. There is a new video of the lower range and one of me shooting a Thompson.
John was so excited about the Thompson. He gave me the full history lesson. He explained its nickname is the "Chicago Typewriter" and it came out in 1928. He also told me it was the gun that Bonnie and Clyde used. I shot it, shrugged, and handed it back to him.
John: Great, huh?
Me: I didn't really care for it.
John: Are you kidding? You didn't like THE THOMPSON?
Me: Not so much.
John: Hmph, it was good enough for Bonnie.
Still to come... videos of me shooting a Browning 1919, HK MP5 PDW, M4 Carbine, M60, and an M249 SAW. Also to come, videos of our nephew Luke at Knob Creek. He was one happy kid last weekend. Stay tuned...
I uploaded a couple of videos to the Pretty Pistolera YouTube Channel. Since it takes me a while to add each of the videos, I uploaded my favorite first. This is me shooting a Sterling, although it is not the best video of the field trip, I truly enjoyed the Sterling experience. It handled very well... easy to shoot!
I am so happy to be home... I've been to The Big Apple and a machine gun fest all in the same week (hilarious, huh?). John has been on the road for almost two weeks... Philly for the IDPA nationals then he left again on Thursday for Knob Creek. He should be home in a couple of hours and Winston will be back tomorrow afternoon... then we should be back to normal for a few weeks.
The Machine Gun Shoot at Knob Creek was an interesting experience. I've never seen anything quite like it. I was told about 13,000 people visit the three day event. I have lots of video to share! John bought me a nifty new Flip camcorder to make shooting video and uploading much easier. This is the perfect camcorder for a range bag. The camera plugs into the USB port of the computer and voila... super-easy uploaded videos. I will put them on YouTube this week.
Here is a pic I snapped Saturday morning at the range. Shooting on the upper range had just started and the sun just came up over the hills. It didn't take long for gunpowder to fill the air.
John is home from the IDPA nationals. He's a happy camper... he did really well. At least we'll be home together tonight. I am headed out tomorrow morning for the Big Apple. I'll be gone all week, and then I'm headed to Louisville on Friday afternoon.
The big machine gun shoot at the Knob Creek Gun Range is this Friday through Sunday. John works on the lower range with the Huey Brothers as a safety officer. I'm on my own... so, I recruited my mother-in-law and one of my favorite nephews to come along. How cool of a mother-in-law do I have??? John's been briefing me on what to expect. I am sure it is nothing like I've ever seen before.
