Default That sucked!

I took my cheapie digital cam out and had it on the tripod a few feet away from my target and loaded 3 speed loaders, took my shots and only got one shot on film! My first shot was the shot that blew my entire group! My second and 3shots were touching! Memory card ran out of space due to some other movies i had on it. Man that sucked butt! It would have been awesome to have caught those other 2 shots on camera.

Its shooting about 2 - 2 1/2" low @ 75 so im not sure if my sights got knocked off a little but hopefully tomorrow i can shoot 100 yards instead and see how it does. This time with an empty memory card

Was shooting the CVA .54cal Mountain Rifle.

Found all of my patches too. I shoot Two .015 patches, one serves as a buffer and allows me to shoot tight groups and the buffers were shredded but the main ball patch was perfect.

I wanted to do the same thing but my brother would not loan me his digital camera... oh yea of little faith!

Usually when I want to use my camera outside, I find the battery goes dead..

lol i hear ya. I made sure i had these batteries charged up before i went out. I took 3 more shots on camera and an uploading the video. No where near as sweet as the first 3 shots but this one i usually get my best accuracy with the first 3 shots and then i have to swab it clean. Fouling starts up pretty quick on this .54

Once this video uploads i will post it here. Nothing special but still fun. Shot #2 hangfired on me but that was my fault, i didnt slap the side of the stock to shift the powder over.

This camera takes good pics but the video quality just isnt there. I actually went and bought a very good quality video camera a couple days ago on ebay. Supposed to have some good features to it so we will see how that one looks. Damn sure aint going to set that one up a few feet away from the target!

I worry about my Chrony everytime I put it up by the target.
