    I am giving up taking pictures...

    The wife came with me to our local IDPA match and snapped some pictures. I take about 200 every match and if I get a couple halfway decent, I am happy. She took few pics for 10 minutes and put me to shame.











    And this is the camera she used:



    I guess I will have to buy her a good camera

    Nice.

    Was she shooting as well, or just taking pics? I've found that if I'm shooting as well as taking pics and/or filming, the end results aren't so hot. I think it's because I'm so rushed, and in the back of my mind, I'm wondering if I'm on deck next, whether I need to paste or not, etc.

    I think she is doing just fine with the one you have. I would buy a new gun.

    She does not shoot IDPA. I've been trying to convince her for a long time but she says she is not into the whole competition thing and I rather not "force" her and get me in trouble and she hating it.

    That would be our Club's president. He did mention during walk-through that penalties for shooting his SUV could include long walk/swims/crawls from the middle of the everglades sans the benefit of shoes, water and firearms.

    PS:

    A video of that particular CoF was just posted
