For some reason I don't see the videos. What do I need to do? I sure would like to see them.

If you are trying to view them from your phone, there is a possibility of issues between your phone and youtube.

Lloyd, I am on my PC. It has to be something I have done or not done to the pc for them to not show up. I will get my Son to look and see what I have done to it. Thanks

I had a blast Dez kept me busy, highlite for me was Jim Gaskas kid, wow he can shoot and I think he is only 10 but for sure was extremely mature when handling a gun and very polite, When I would ask him which paintball he never said far right or left he always said 5th from right beside the broken tee, no doubts you would know exactly what he was shooting at.  He put several old timers out and his pops.  David


You're right about the Gaska kid.  He shot nonstop from my bench for a good while, but I didn't say a word about all of the table shaking he was doing because I could tell he was having a blast with the Flex and I was having more fun watching him than shooting...Not that I could get a shot in anyways Lol.  I finally convinced him that he could hit the 139 yard plate Lloyd/Marty had setup.  He was hesitant for a good while.  I kept telling him with a six mil dot holdover he could hit it.  He finally gave it a shot and did hit it after just a few tries.

Yes, I agree!  Another thing that happened prior that is I noticed Eli was shooting the 25 yard targets as fast as he could get the gun cocked again.  I told him about a 50 yard resettable target I had put out.  I told him if he hit the four smaller targets at the bottom of it they would stay up and then he could hit the top target to reset them.  I forgot about that for a time, but then looked at it later and he had all four bottom targets flipped up.  I remember saying to him you did it.  He smiled with a big grin and told me I could hit the reset which I did.  He really is an impressive young man and can shoot really well too.


Eli wasn't the only one receiving encouragement and having a blast though.  I will always remember the warm welcome from you and also when you gave up your table so Marty could teach me about the 100 yard club plus others he moderates on the forum.  Marty setup 100 yard targets and taught me a lot about how the scoring is done.  I did get one 1x on the 100 yard, but my .25 cal wasn't really up for the task that day and is currently the reason it is on my bench in pieces being worked on.  I have printed out the 30 yard targets and can't wait to have the time to post my results on the forum.  Whether it's the best or not doesn't really matter, it's what I learned from Marty is what I look forward to.  Meeting you two fellas really sticks out in my memory bank.  Really nice folks to be around!

Well for the few hours I was able to be there it was fun.  I may have not have shot my own rifles while I was there or even pull them out well not until I was about to leave.  LOL  In the end I meet a few GTA members and they did offer to let me shot theirs rifles that I have never shot before (THANKS).   I hope next year the stars align and I am able to make a few day trip out of it and not just a few hours. 

Is there a video posted?

We hired an official videographer one year. We should do that again. It does cost though. If anyone wants to take on the task, we would be glad to talk!!!
