PA Shootout: New Pics and Vids 11/25

Unread postAuthor: sgort87 » Fri Nov 24, 2006 9:12 pm

So I'm here in Pennsylvania at JSpellman's house with him and Darth Tater. We have been having some fun and I figured I'd show you some pictures. We will try to get a lot more tomorrow.

Here's the album of pictures from today: http://www.putfile.com/sgort87/images/54144
Here's a video of Spelly with Darth Tater's gun: http://media.putfile.com/JesseAndEleanor

So funny story... My car started to smell weird and we thought it maybe was the spuds. I didn't think it was because they were new. It ended up being a mouse that died in the Mauler chamber. That's what I get for leaving the chamber in the shed I suppose.

Here's a video of the last shot of today which I am not extremely proud of but... meh... http://media.putfile.com/LastShot

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

I love how you were shooting at a cat's pride cat litter box.
And no, everyone should move to Texas.

Okay, well I'm home. It took me 10 hours to get back but it was definately worth it.

Thanks again to Jesse for having me over and thanks to his parents for being really cool about it. Your place is perfect for shooting. The gravel pit it just amazing and the other people there was the best crowd possible.

I will definately try to do this again over the summer. It would be awesome to get a whole lot more people there and have a campout in the gravel pit.

Oh yeah, and Aaron was cool too I guess. :P

As for the rest of the forum members, there are many many more pictures and videos up. I have it all on my putfile account for everyone to see. Please check it all out.

Yes, they are. They will eventually be put on YouTube as well.

Do you have a slow connection or something?

I got dial up also Jrrdw. Ive noticed that it seems that videos on Putfile take a longer time to load then that of YouTube. But it should be understood that YouTube progressively loads there videos, while Putfile will just show you the vid once it completly downloaded. I use a FireFox extension now named 'VideoDownloader'. You instead of loading it on Putfile you can download it, using the percentage in the download box to be aware of how much of it has been loaded. Not to mention the video is now on your computer HD so no need to ever download it again or even go on the net to view it!

I have a fast broadband connection and putfile took me up to 45minutes to load a video once(it was short) I wouldnt mind it if I knew how long it would take(e.g percentage)
