Here is a quick post on some of the more broad points of Boomershoot 2011. I was out there Thursday-Sunday, and camped Friday and Saturday night. I must say, from now on I’m camping out there, it greatly simplified things even though I only live about an hour and twenty minutes away.
This post is going to focus on Sunday, I’ll make one that covers Friday and Saturday later.
I got some other pictures of it turning into the mushroom cloud but I was just too close. Hopefully we’ll get the pictures from Rolf some time soon.
At lunch there was the normal anvil shoot as well as a slightly new addition.
These guys were lobbing bowling balls 600 yards easy. They also looked damn impressive when they went off.
The anvil shot was impressive as always.
80 pounds tossed like a pizza. Pictures of guns and shooters at Boomershoot will be randomly posted with comments throughout the year. I’ve got so many pictures I can’t just pack them all in one post. A video though should cover it.
There were some other lessons learned and other comments to make as well, but yet again, for another post.
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
