More target practice
Jan 31st, 2021 at 10:35pm
 
Just wanted to share some more footage of some target slinging. I was slinging at a soda bottle in this one. 11 hits out of 130 throws at 17m (18 yards). It was a pretty decent day.

I edited the footage so all the hits are at the beginning if you don't want to waste 5 minutes watching all the misses.

This is why I love your videos. You always keep it real. The laugh was hilarious too. ". In my mind I could hear you saying "F$&@ this bottle in particular! "

The pocket radar was cool too. 80+ mph with a 170 gram ammo will ring your bell pretty good.

My practice area is currently under 3 foot of snow so I'm super jealous of your set-up Cheesy

Wow IronGoober, there are some great videos on your channel! Of course YouTube hasnt shown it to me, why would they show a channel about slinging to a user with another slinging channel?  Roll Eyes

I like your slo-mo obviously  Grin

Thanks David.  I've been thinking of make a playlist with all of the YouTube channels of slinging content that I've found. There are quite a few out sprinkled around.

And Kick, I am very blessed to have a backyard that is this big in my area.  It was one reason my wife and I liked the house so much.  What is snow? lol

If I put my foot where the camera was placed and sling at the backstop, I can get 20 yards of distance. So, if I pushed the backstop back into the corner, I might have enough to do 20 m, but then the sling hits the corner of the house when I release... so I just try to sling at a smaller target.

That's a great idea.  It helps the algorithm if we all like and subscribe each others' channels and videos also.

  Hitting such a small  target almost ten percent of the time is pretty good shooting.

I might have missed some (or duplicated). One video per channel is in the playlist, there are more on most channels.

You are good at keeping a certain sector close to the target, looking nice!
