Topics I've Started
22 September 2009 - 07:19 AMCurrently my school is canceled, I was kinda wondering why until I decided to go to the marta station to go down to Georgia State. Everything is literally underwater. It's a straight up flood. The highway outside my school is a river now, complete with waterfall so our commuters are screwed as well as our professors. I really hope the cafeteria workers are still here...
The roads that I have to take to go back home are all rivers... oh well lol i think my parents can survive a few more weeks.
06 July 2009 - 09:22 PMOk so I live in Atlanta. No one goes hunting if you have a gun it's for self defense or the opposite, lol.
Well I have a friend that moved here from new jersey who promised to take me shooting two years ago cause he couldn't believe I never had. Anyway, to keep the promise before he goes to basic (next week) I went to an indoor range with him and his dad.
They own a lot of stuff but we could only use the pistols here so we took their 9mm smith&wesson and a .22 Beretta target pistol (i believe)
We also rented a little somethin' somethin' to spice things up.
HaHa we put about 150 rounds through it which went really really fast
I started off with the .22 since it was my first time it was really fun since it literally had no kick you could just fire as fast as you can (which was really satisfying lol) I kinda sucked with the 9mm it was really fun though. It was loud and had way more kick that the .22 lol. I kept shooting low and to the right never really hit a bullseye we had the human shaped paper targets and i never hit the head and only put some near the chest
Anyway when I finally got to shoot the thompson I put about 5 or 6 rounds down in single and was pretty damn impressed with myself lol every single shot was a bullseye at a little over 25 feet (not much but hey it's my first time) Then I put it on full auto you're only supposed to let off bursts with it but it got stuck. Seriously it was scary. It kinda ran up the target knocked it off the hanger and then concrete started puffing on the ceiling but seriously it wasn't my fault the range master/officer/ whoever the hell you wanna call it took it back into the shop and fixed it for us and TOLD me it wasn't my fault lol. Anyway they were nice enough to get my target for me cause they knew it was my first time and would wanna keep it. I'll put up pictures of the little metal clip i demolished lol.
At the end of the day I actually took my time and put 10 rounds down at a little past 75 feet (the maximum range) and got a 7 inch grouping with one little flyer, i'm proud of that for my first time.
Anyway, sorry if that was boring but i am extremely excited and no one was awake when I got home so I gotta tell someone pics ups later tonight.
05 June 2009 - 05:39 PMFor the record I didn't put this in the photography section because it has nothing to do with paintball. I have no intention of ever photographing paintball.
So anyway, I went on a camping trip with a bunch of friends. The first day we went kayaking and I felt confident enough in my abilities to take pictures while in my kayak and to walk out into the rapids to take pictures of the group members coming down. I was right, I didn't drop it at all, I didn't tip I didn't slip, my camera stayed dry. Then when we were camping we decided to swim out to an island in the lake. I was the strongest swimmer and since this island was a good ways out we figured we'd need some stuff so naturally I was the pack mule and stuck my camera in a waterproof bag with all of the rest of our stuff. I get to the shore first unpack the camera and take pictures of other people swimming, after a while me and another friend had to jump back in to help someone else cross (he wasn't drowning but it looked like he was having trouble so better safe then sorry.) Anyway, somewhere between from where I put my camera down and jumped in again and when I got back to shore it got wet. It survived all this stupid stuff and then died by someone splashing to much or something.
Anyway, I like to take pictures so I need a new one, but I don't fancy myself a photographer so all I need is a point and shoot although I do want a relatively nice one.
My old one was a Sony Cybershot DSC-W80.
It was perfect for me and I can get one for $100 bucks now but I figure i'd step it up a little and try to fix some of my minor complaints. So here is what I didn't like about it
-It couldn't zoom in video mode
-The shot to shot time was kinda slow
-I would like a higher zoom
-Better picture quality is always awesome
Here is what I did like and would like to have in whatever camera i get now
-no brainer to take pictures (I figure this is a given with point and shoots but figured i'd add it anyway.)
-rechargeable batteries, I don't like the double a's. Although I would like to be able to not have to worry about recharging, maybe one that has the option of using both without having to buy rechargeable batteries.
-big lcd screen
-editing modes build it (this is a necessity I LOVED this feature, the more editing functions built in the better)
-I also liked the picture quality, but if I can get better I want it.
I checked consumer reports and cnet but all the technical stuff meant nothing to me I couldn't actually tell which one was better.
So basically, can I get a better camera then what I had for relatively cheap?
I'm going to go ahead and set a budget of $200 but if something goes a little over it should be fine.
