    The Ambassador of OC

    Every Saturday, Grapeshot goes to some event or the other to promote OC. I tagged along yesterday when he went to the Farmers market in Richmond.

    As usual, not much in the way of antis although a Veteran who now works for the V.A.....in food services, did stop and thank us for what we were doing, but carrying was useless because he could kill us with his bare hands before we could draw.

    I saw things us hicks shouldn't see and we did get to educate a few people.

    Grapeshot is the Ambassador of OC!

    A Glock .45 looks like a Smith and Wesson 1911?

    Great choice of music for the video. Especially in light of the fact that Richmond hit 105 degrees yesterday - as reported up here. Nice job. The lady who told about going shooting and having a blast needs to grow her hair out because she has a very pretty smile and countenance. Might as well take advantage of what God gave her.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    She has an interesting little business set up. It isn't quite a Charity but seems to be beneficial.

    I used 3 of them:

    Canon 7D
    Sony HDR FX550V
    Cool dude spy sunglasses (Realtree hunting glasses)

    I just convert it all to 720P before editing the thing.

    If you're wondering about the light flares, I added them with Red giant knoll.

    I was testing a new steadyrest I built with a flying handle made from a surgical universal joint. Worked pretty well. Now to make a mount for my field monitor on it and it's ready to roll with either DSLR video or The Sony's.

    Any semi-automatic looks like any other to someone who's only been shooting once. I'm surprised Grapeshot didn't invite her to a range day.
