  1. +1 for this. Been looking for this for a while
  2. +1 Been using the A6000 for a while now, but its overkill plus its bottom loading. Sucks need to unplug and remove after every video.
  3. So I was mistaken in my earlier post, here is a great article that clears up a lot of this confusion http://www.havokjournal.com/nation/everything-you-need-to-know-rangers/
  4. I had heard the regiment is harder to get into (the scroll), and that RQ (ranger qualified) is the tab? Since you can be a ranger (tab) and not be in the regiment, but cannot be in the regiment without the tab?
  5. looking at the a5100, that is the camera to have. side loading card, super fast auto focus. Looks like its time for another camera. shit.
  6. Great Camera for tandems. Does not focus as fast as the a6000 but if using the pancake lens that won't matter as the lens does not have auto focus. Focus would be more of a set on infinity and go. However a huge plus is the card is side loaded so no need to remove from the mount to change cards. Shooting on intelligent mode is not ideal. Aperture or Shutter priority is optimal. Will shoot roughly 3fps which is fine for tandems. Personally I would use a Really Right Stuff mount for it. If I was not already using a A6000 I would be using a 5000.
  7. gps is generally not a great idea for 4way. It doesn't add anything helpful to the team and it drains the battery much faster
  8. You can order from the Sony site directly. I use the mount it comes with its pretty solid. I just wear it on either wrist, depending on how much crap I need to wear.
  9. That was my tongue in cheek point. It has to be shake free (as much as possible) from the camera. I do shoot for comp, tandems, fun. I am waiting for this years shootout results to see if I should invest in some new cameras. I am considering the HDR AZ-1 for handcam once the Hero2 bites the bullet. Do you have any experience with that camera specifically the stills??
  10. remote is nearly the same size as the gopro model but with more functionality. here are the 2 models http://www.sony.net/Products/actioncam/en-us/support/LVR/RM-LVR1/ http://www.sony.net/Products/actioncam/en-us/support/LVR/RM-LVR2/
  11. Yeah doubt the USPA judges would be happy with getting edited footage during nationals . Even if it makes their job easier
  12. acutally A and B. If you want you can build your own, and then there is no requirement to register. E. If you have already purchased a handgun in this state, then you no longer need to wait 10 days. I. That is a county problem not a state problem. Other counties in Ca only require "self defense" as the good cause.
  13. *** Oddly enough I have been having more shake with the stabilization ON with the ASV100 while shooting 8way.
  14. this firearms are like cars. Lots to choose from but there will be that "one" that fits you and your needs. If its only used at range and possibly in the backwood country, I would suggest a full size frame. No need to go to a small compact. Smaller frames offer less choice, fits fewer hands, caliber and magazine capacity are an issue. best way to find out what fits your needs it to spend some time at the range and try as many as you can afford to try. Different calibers, different frames. Also try many of the same caliber and frame just because one doesn't work, does not mean another wont work.
  15. Yes, they're nearly always in the US. Europe has a far larger population than the US; we don't have these problems on the frequency/scale of the US. no but you have a much higher rate of violent crime http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1196941/The-violent-country-Europe-Britain-worse-South-Africa-U-S.html
  16. This issue is endemic to all small cameras, global shutter is simply too expensive at this time, to put into a small package. The PolarPro kit for Sony is indeed the best answer, and it should be slowing your shutter down enough that it's below 1/250 (where jellocam mostly dies) only problem is you can't use the housing if you use the Polarpro. Using the mount without the housing causes a LOT of shaking for 4 way, however it does not do that for tandems. I am guessing it has something to do with the dirty burble air above the team I am still considering a set though
  17. I have been having great success with the Sony action cameras. With the IS turned on it has a 120 fov (170 w/o). The 120 is roughly CX with .42ish lens added. While there is not light indicator (hype-eye or turned on), the remote works very well. The remote will not power on the cameras but it will display up to 4 cameras you can scroll through. Also pushing the record button will start recording on all the cameras. After checking the screen and seeing a red dot next to each camera you can switch the display off and still see a red light next to the record button. Battery life will last a full day of training UNLESS you play through the camera to a TV or computer screen. In which case it would pay off to carry a spare battery or plug it in during lunch. One problem that does exist the rolling shudder common on action cameras. If you add a ND gel filter of 2 stops it fixes most of this.
  18. Add the sailor to the list of the dead I believe that at this point..... there needs to be a sidearm incorporated into the uniform of ALL service members. With this latest threat from ISIS to go after them here in the homeland... I think OPEN CARRY by our service members should be mandatory.... They are targets... let all of them be trained and act accordingly... I agree completely. The only problem is qualifying with the sidearm. I few years ago I overheard a friend who is a captain in the reserves talking about how over HALF of the unit failed rifle qualification due to lack of training time/ammo. And this was a unit that has seen combat (were actually seen at the end of Fahrenheit 9/11). I have no clue if training and qualifying for active duty easier to accomplish (more training and ammo readily available) but my only concern (same concern with most LEO) is being a piss poor shot. Then that is a training FAIL especially for combat arms...... if they are motivated sufficiently... I bet they can be trained up... seriously... If you are in uniform... and I do not care if you are a mechanic, a cook or some of the college boys who drove airplanes that I trained.. they need to be qualified... no matter how long it takes..... PERIOD. Think both of you are missing the point. It doesn't need to be mandatory, nor does how good a shot they are matter in this case. It just needs to be allowed so they aren't just known unarmed targets. My point is far more complex... if one is going to be in the military.... the service member needs to be first and foremost a warrior... the Marines know this... EVERY marine is supposed to be a warrior. If one aspires to being a warrior in our military..... I would hope they would wish to learn the craft of war. Technically every marine is a rifleman first
  19. Letting active duty military carry sidearms is not intended to prevent terrorist attacks. Its meant to give them a chance at defending themselves if they are attacked. Again if somebody wants to kill themselves there are a lot of different ways to do it that do not involve a gun. Just ask a drug addict how they score if they have no money. Desperation leads to creativity, if you want something done bad enough you will find a way. Leaving them unarmed will not increase the chances they will not kill themselves.

  21. Sons of Guns had the appropriate FFL at the time to construct that drone
  22. considering isis tweeted claiming responsibility for the attack (yes it was 3 hours after the shooting). So unless isis is just riding the turds coat tails, its not a far stretch.
  23. The shooting was at a recruiting office, not on base.
  24. ATTN WORLD.... no criminals in LONDON.... Manchester.....Liverpool... Glasgow.... etc... lots of victims.. go get them victims... they is unarmed and unafraid of you... Criminals here, and there are just as nasty and mean as everywhere else in the world. I travel extensively in the US and I do not fear the gun toting public while I'm there. It's mostly a peaceful place with nice people. All I'm saying is that you pay a price for having so many guns in so many hands. Like the guy in the theater who gets mad because someone is on their cell phone. Words get said, pushing starts, and maybe there is an assault. But if the angry man happens to be packing heat, boom, a murder charge in the heat of the moment for no good reason. If there are more guns more people will use them. If there are less guns, less people will use them. Most of the western world has decided on giving up the pure pleasure of owning and shooting pistols because they don't want to pay the price. America has largely made the opposite decision. I respect that, but I don't respect those who refuse to acknowledge the cost of an armed society. According to Heinlein an armed society is a polite society. There is quite the difference between the legally armed citizen and a turd with a firearm. Most legally armed citizens hold themselves to a higher standard of social interaction. Knowing the difference between an imminent threat and some asshole kicking the back of your seat in a theater is really not difficult to understand. However a criminal is a criminal, is a criminal. They are not going to be following the law anyway (hence the title of criminal). So adding more laws does not remove the firearms from the dangerous criminals. All it does is disarm the law abiding citizen. Seriously if "laws" work so well to stop crime, how is that war on drugs still around?
  25. Arrogent isn't the right word. I am 1 of 7 billion people. I do not matter, and I am an inexperienced jumper, I know that. My friend don't like it when I do social experiments on them either. -------- Seven firing criteria? I know there is a complex algorithm that probably involves time, speed, pressure, and altitude. But what are the other 5 firing criteria besides altitude and speed? Like I said its closely guarded IP, similar to the recipe of Coke a Cola. Soif you knew all the criteria you would probably be the owner of Cypress
