My New Hobby

30 Jun

A few weeks ago I got a Gopro Hero 3+ camera for my birthday. Since then I have been playing with it in a bunch of different ways. I put a mount on the dashboard of my truck and filmed my drive to work and I put another on the windshield of my motorcycle for capturing some rides. Then I took the big leap and took the camera under water. For me this was a big deal because I am especially paranoid about electronics in water. But with the confidence from a little internet research and the assurance that the GoPro came with a waterproof case good to well past where I was using it I did it.

Underwater filming may be my new favorite use for this camera. My first videos were just at a local lake with me putting the camera on the end of a 5ft telescopic monopod and catching great glimpses of weeds and such. But this past weekend we took a little road trip out to the small town of Poulsbo, WA and there before me I saw a big dock with tons of empty slips. I waltzed down to the dock and put my camera on the end of the same monopod to see what I could catch on the camera. When I reviewed the footage I was surprised to see I saw a bunch of fish right underneath the dock.

So below are a few short videos I put together, frankly at this point I suck at video editing but I am learning. Most of my experience with video editing was in a video edit lab in HS 10yrs ago so editing on my iPad is a whole new world (but a heck of a lot quicker).

The gun community and my faith in it.

21 May

It’s no secret that the only real damage to our cause has been done by members of our own community especially recently.

The pro gun groups win in court, we win in most demographic groups and our progress is only slowed by idiots jumping the shark and thinking a low ready rifle should be treated the same as a holstered handgun when out in public.

Frankly this week my faith in our cause was damaged. Until today when I went to the range. A guy about my age brought his mom to the range. Sadly the cheap bulk pack .22lr he had wouldn’t cycle his 10/22. I offered to trade him about 50rounds of CCI mini mags for about 100 rounds of his bulk pack (armscorp). He agreed. So I shot the 100rounds out of my .22 revolver and all was happy.

Then another shooter completely randomly offered to let me shoot his Ruger redhawk in .45lc because he said “it hurts my hand but I love the sound”.

All together it reaffirmed my faith in the gun community after all the junk this week with idiots at chipotle ruining it all for us.

At the range today there was a broad spectrum of ages, cultures and people in general. It reminded me of what we fight for.

On Easter my mom went to the range with my us. It’s the first time she has ever gone with me. She hasn’t touched a gun since before I was born when she took a basic handgun course under the idea that if Dad was going to have guns in the house she should know how to handle and use them.

By the end of the afternoon she was shooting my AR like a pro and shot everything from my .22lr revolver to my M&P pistol. It was a special day for my brother and I to share the hobby that my Dad got us into.

Also it was really pretty amazing to get to shoot with my Dad since we hadn’t been to the range together in years.

My last two range days have really been some of my best for no other reason and they reminded me that gun rights protects really important but sometimes abstract things like freedom and civil society but they also are a great way for families to rally together and spend an afternoon doing something fun. My only regret is that I didn’t get any video of my wife and my Mom shooting side by side. Because that moment was full of so much win I couldn’t contain myself.

Now if only I could replace all the .22lr ammo I’ve shot up recently.

Bushmaster Carbon 15 Follow up Review.

18 Feb

I bought my Carbon-15 on Halloween of 2012. Its no surprise that when I bought it I wasn’t the only person buying an AR at the time. But I didn’t know anybody else with one of these. In fact until about a week prior to buying it I didn’t even know that anybody made a rifle with a carbon/polymer receiver.

 

All the review that I read on line were terrible for the “1st generation” and pretty solid for the second gen rifles. Well I have now had the rifle for about a year and a half and although I have only put about 12oornds through it. So far it is perfect. One of the debates that happens with this rifle as well as many AR-15 style rifles is that you aren’t supposed to run steel cased ammo through it. Well I am here to say that at least 500 of the 1200 I have but through the gun have been steel. While I understand that it is harder on the gun it has yet to choke and if I experience a FTE I will certainly post about it.

The rifle came with a pretty cheap reddot scope that actually worked really well BUT its still a 1x reddot so I want to put a better scope on it for some longer range shooting because frankly I suck without a little magnification. The rifle also came with a hard sized rifle case that is virtually useless because it doesn’t actually hold the rifle with the scope that they provided mounted. Also although the rifle came with 2 steel 20rnd mags I run pretty much exclusively Pmag-30′s.

So a 16months later the rifle is performing great and as soon as I put a better optic on it should be set up as a nice predator gun. Of course my long term plan is to get a nice .300blk upper and use it as my deer gun but that may take a few more days of overtime to accomplish.

Compact Movie Review “Lone Survivor”

28 Jan

A few months back I started seeing trailers and advertisements for “Lone Survivor” from those trailers it looked like a really good military action movie. I expected to see this decades “Black Hawk Down” and I was in for that. Then the weekend it came out my twitter feed and Facebook timeline exploded with positive and stunning reviews from everybody all of my friends that have either served in the military or have kids in the military. This changed my entire perspective, now I knew I needed to see this movie but I also knew that it wasn’t going to be a throw away thriller. Instead it was an experience. I actually saw this movie by myself and I am kind of glad I did because it got mighty dusty in that theater at the end. As somebody who has never served in the military this movie reminded me of what is going on in a far off land on a far more often basis than I think I would like to acknowledge. The fact that its been so well received by my friends and family that have been deployed tells me that the produces of this movie got a lot of things right. While I am sure there was some artistic license taken at some point this movie still falls into the category that I would expect it to be shown in High Schools in the next few years.

Compact Movie Review “Gravity”

20 Jan

Spectacular is the only way to describe what Sandra Bullock does in this movie.

And just in case you didn’t think that the creators could find a way to get her mostly naked in a movie that takes place in space rest assured they find a way. Frankly I could expound on this movie more but if I start telling you about just about anything it will give something away. All I can say is that yes I have listened to the arguments that Neil Degrasse Tyson brings up on why its all fake but no shit, its George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in space. Also I have a deep hatred for 3D movies weather its realD, Digital3D or mega super extra awesome 3D, it all gives me a headache. However I took the advice of so many people and saw this in 3D Imax and I was very glad that I did.

Compact Movie Review “Captain Phillips”

12 Jan

This movie was frekin spectacular. I’m a nut for any sort of political or military movies and frankly my wife isn’t.

However Captain Phillips crosses that bridge amazingly well. Oh sure it had action and adventure but it was also immensely sad and incredibly suspenseful in sections.

Tom Hanks performed like only he can reminiscent of his stunning job in Cast away.

This isn’t the Forrest Gump Hanks it’s more like be Apollo 13 Tom Hanks. Being a master of the screen regardless of who he shares it with.

Compact Movie Review “American Hustle”

07 Jan

Let me begin by saying that I see a very good number of movies. Probably 25 a year. And I have only ever walked out of three. Those 3 were 1. The Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie. 2. Nights in Rodanthe 3. American Hustle . This movie was pitched as an homage to Goodfellas , the godfather , casino and all the other great gangster movies. Turns out what it should have been pitched as is an episode of Sopranos with more foul language but where nobody dies. The only thing this movie had going for it was the gratuitous use of Amy Adams side boob.

Well they made this easy

01 Nov

Just got this in my inbox. It is an Official video from President Obama’s PAC encouraging us all to preach tea importance of health insurance to our friends and family.

But the best part is when they equate health insurance with joining a cult or the circus. No really go watch for yourself.

Oddly enough they fail to mention the federal fine for NOT enrolling.

Trust me it’s worth a listen

18 Oct

As many of my readers know I am an avid listener and frequent caller on the squirrel report . Well last night JayG officially announced his new job. I won’t blow it here since I don’t think he has announced it on his blog yet but all I can say is its awesome.

He’s a good guy who has been the driving inspiration for a lot of us to get into blogging.

Also in the same episode we discussed unusual sandwiches and I promised a video of making my personal odd sandwich.

Look forward to that soon as given how excited Breda was about me making the video I think I have to do it now.

The government shutdown and my outlook on it.

04 Oct

Here are my quickly scribbled thoughts on what is now day 3 of this shutdown.

1. It’s virtually inevitable they the employees that have been furloughed will receive backpay just like they did in 1995 so the proper term is really paid vacation. Basically it looks to me like this has about as much effect as the week between Christmas and New Years where it seems like just about everybody is out of their office.

2. Yes I’m tired of both sides whining. The republicans are still bitter that they couldn’t put together a coherent argument to beat Obamacare and the Democrats are doing everything they can to try and prove the importance of their role by making it hurt more, such as shutting WWII veterans out of the national WWII memorial.

3. I hope that we all remember this come election time but I fear that yet again we will have a country that simply votes for the politicians that promise the most free stuff to the most people.

4. I encourage all of you regardless of if you have employer sponsored healthcare to visit the websites for the health care exchanges and look at the prices. At least for my wife and I we realized that the individual mandate to buy a private service was absolutely unreasonable and the prices were bloated due to the red tape included in all of the plans.
