  6. Really cool, thanks for sharing. They have shotgun and single action revolver competitions in the US. Cowboy Fast Draw is nice to watch.

  9. "So, what do you do for a living?"

    "I shoot things, really fast."

    "Ah......"

    :biggrin:

    That is a neat way to photograph his skills - I wonder how badly the weight of the camera attached to the barrel affects his aim.

    I doubt really any, ive used a helmet cam on my shotgun before. Just think theres 9 shells in the gun also so it get lighter as hes go's

    This is an actual hunting vid from last year, I used the barrel cam: http://www.ramseyleonard.com/gallery/9253912_iXByH#618000375_SirUG

    Incredible shooting skills indeed. I suppose you have seen the behind the scenes video too. The photographers equipment took some beating. I quote: "My gear was covered in clay target powder, melons, and I had a few casualties to my gear, as a 14-24 and 24-70 had to be medevaced out." Medevaced, isnt that a bit out of place in this context? Or am I mistaken? May be it looked and smelled like a battlefield. :biggrin: I suppose the lenses were not beyond repair. Oh, by the way, not bad bringing 6 camera bodies to do this assignment!

  12. Nice tricks.But why is the expert holding his finger on the trigger all time???,and is he waving it around like a broom while it's still loaded??
