Boomershoot 2010 Video and Report

Boomershoot 2010 was awesome and a lot of fun. I don’t know exactly why, but I ended up shooting the opening fireball for the shoot. Laurel from Politics Guns and Beer was there along with an entourage of help. I spent some time behind the rifle, but I spent more time educating and making sure others had a blast. And I’m glad to say, it appears they did have a great time.

The high intensity(video) shoots were fun as usual; feeling the boomers go off rattles your soul from head to toe always puts a smile on my face. The dinner though was a great social hour.

Oleg was there along with Laurel, Mike and Abigail.

As well as some friends from my days back in scouts. I told them I was going to put this pic online and I’m a man of my word. For those who don’t know, yes I’m an Eagle Scout and the reason I carry is to “Be Prepared.”

Mike, Andy, and Robert

We had a wonderful dinner which raised $2000 in raffle tickets. Half of which went straight to Soldiers’ Angels. The other half is put into a raffle lottery split into 10%, 10%, and 30%. David won the $600 which he then stated that he was going to make a $1000 donation to Soldiers’ Angels when he got home. Thank you David.

Overall it was yet another awesome year at Boomershoot, with a great reminder of how great the people are who participate. I hope to see you all again next year.

    Dude Barron, you guys gotta get a slow-motion camera for that stuff. Explosions in slo-mo are so much more satisfying to watch afterwards. I’ve got a Casio Exilim EX-F1 that does some excellent shots.

      Neat, I’ve been looking for another HD camera that has a viewfinder on it. That looks like it may fit the bill. Most of the time I’d want standard video, but high speed would be handy for some stuff too.

      You’re also more than welcome to come out. The next Boomershoot will by May 1st 2010.

    I loved the Boomershoot video! Love the Barrett .50! I have a rifle question for you, and have sent 2 emails to your gmail account….are you using that account? Shoot me an email that works. That is really cool that you took pics of the Palouse car show.

    [...] Lastly at the end of the day, Joe and I finished off the last two Boomers. For some reason I was off my game and missed, first time in a LONG time. I must say though, it was much better to happen then instead of during Boomershoot with a TV crew behind me. [...]
