    Peter, those stocks are just fantastic, I love artistry in wood. I handle stocks like those and my hands tingle.

    Thanks Tom ----I look at wood like jewels; some are ok to look at and some deserve extra time to bring out the beauty of the material.

    Well, Peter, the problem is space. Too, there is a limitation of the software used to run this site.

    Anyone can download the picture and see it in full size and in all it's glory and people will. But for a post they will always be a thumbnail size.

    If I let every one, and if I did it for you, I *would* have to do it for all, post full size pics this way my space on the server would get eaten up quickly.

    The alternative to posting them this way is to use something like Photobucket or some other on line storage utility. This creates a link that will let your pictures be viewed in full size, to the extent of the width of the forum. The pro to this is that the picture is stored off site and it "called" to be viewed. In other words, doesn't eat up my space on the server.

    I hope this is not to big an inconvenience to you. I apologize for the issue if it is a problem but there are reasons for this type of format and nothing personal to any of our members.

    Personally, I like the pictures and have downloaded them myself for a better look. I too appreciate the share.

    Yup, like I said, I really enjoy your sense of humor, Peter. Never a dull moment . . .

    . . . That is, if not between your ears tongue

    Laughing


    Seruously though, check out photobucket or something like that . . .you'll get to change the size of the pic and all that and your pictures do an Air Gun justice so you'd be doing us all a solid by doing so.

    See you on the rest of the Ranges!

    Good example of a Photobucket storage and call to this site below.

    I was walking back wards, my eyes on the pesky squirrel already gun shy as he jumped from limb to limb. Both of my feet caught a log behind me and the Rainstorm went the way of my left hand smacking it against a small log as it and my backside both hit what stopped us at the same time.

    I came up bruised and I thought okay but seems my old back has a delayed reaction. Regardless, the stock is now damaged. See pics.








    Now, see, those are full size on the site and as called from the Photobucket site. So, I think they are too big. So, I'm going back and resize them and post them again.

    Unfortunately, I took the pictures in a rush for someone to give me some advice on how to fix it and my skill at photography is severely lacking. No hope for the blurry.

    See below for an example of resize.






    Note see code for the second picture here using BBC below:

    Code:
    [img]http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif[/img][/center]

    I resized one of the earlier pictures and it should show up resized even though I've already posted it.

    However, in this post I've just made copies at a smaller size and posted the link for them here.

    Easy enough but gets your pictures out the way you want them.

    There is more complicated ways: You can create a syntax within the link statement that governs the size posted on the web site of the forum. I'm apt to do that more than not because it means I don't end up filling up my Photobucket site with a lot of the same pictures but at different sizes to get them all confused. Too, some sites lets you get away with bigger or smaller. I can give you an example:

    Code:

    <center><A href="http://topgun-airguns.com/stocks.html" target=_blank><IMG title="PETER-BUILT stocks are individually created to meet the needs of the customer. The stocks are carved from a number of exotic woods Click here and find out! " src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif"></A></center>

    The above is your signature in your profile. It appears like so when viewed as a html statement:



    However, lets do the resize concept I mentioned earlier. We'll add to it something.

    Code:

    <center><A href="http://topgun-airguns.com/stocks.html" target=_blank><IMG title="PETER-BUILT stocks are individually created to meet the needs of the customer. The stocks are carved from a number of exotic woods Click here and find out! " src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif"></A></center>




    Now the only thing I changed in that was the last sentence in the statement: See below:

    Code:
    <center><A href="http://topgun-airguns.com/stocks.html" target=_blank><IMG title="PETER-BUILT stocks are individually created to meet the needs of the customer. The stocks are carved from a number of exotic woods Click here and find out! " src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif"width=100 height=50></A></center>

    Notice that all I added was the width= and the height= attributes. (Almot the very last statment in the syntax) You can monkey around with them until you get it where you want using the preview feature.

    So, If I wanted to take my 2nd picture in this post and make it a different size, the curret code for it is this:

    Code:
    [center]<a href="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" target="_blank"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket" width=100 height=100></a>[/center]

    And it shows up as this:

    Photobucket

    But if I add the lsst sizing statement, it becomes this:

    Photobucket

    But too, you will have to notice that there are two types of code there. One is HTML and the other is BBC.

    One is Hyper Text Mark Up Lanquage and the other is Bulitin Board Code.

    In this forum, I have set the permission for all to be able to use both codes. For me, it is easier to use HTML than it is BBC even though BBC was desinged to be more user friendly for Buliten Board users---and that is what almost all forums are: Buliten Boards.

    I don't mind sharing any of what I know about this. I've forgotten more than I'll every learn and my creditials are eons old but I can still pass on a little to anyone interested.

    But the keen thing here is, and the reason for sharing, is that there are a lot of ways you can get your pictures bigger here. I'd like for all that have a real need to be able to do so.

    I'll start a topic on it if anyone wants to know or wants to share any tips and tricks that they know . . .

    There was a guy I once knew that I really respected in computer stuff. He used to say, "You are mouse impaired" meaning that I couldn't do anything unless it was point and click or object oriented. That bugged me for a long time and I eventually learned to do things the "hard" way not depending on other programs that don't always play well with others.

    I like Photobucket for end users because it had a resize feature that is very user friendly. But, like I said, most of the time I just plop the code in myself.

    I think Photobucket is the only point and click thing I've ever used and I didn't start using that one until a few months ago for the storage space. Most sites you even have to resize the embedded Utube links to get the controls in the frame and not even Photobucket will do that for you.

    But not everybody is going to go through all that effort and still more effort yet to keep all that in their head.

    Works for me I guess. And that too, I guess, is what is important.

    But for sure let me know if yo have problems with your current utility or have a need and I'll help you out to get them posted the way you want.

    Got this:

    Pretty simple stuff, really. But I've got the stuff of nightmares to attend this morning before I reply.

    Will get back to you on this . . . soon.

    The following was taken from http://www.ehow.com/how_2036208_youtube-video.html "Ehow: How to make a You Tube Video. There are a host of places out there that will take you to where you need to go to be in the know about this but this one was easy to find on a knee jerk Google Search and I thought it without all the not so smart stuff that would just confuse most people. Instructions


    Things You'll Need


    • A digital camera
    • A You Tube account
    Suggest Edits





      • 1
        Make a movie using a digital camera, web cam, or cell phone. An old VHS will only work if you transfer it to a digital file-you'll need a digital converter to plug an older camcorder into the computer. You can upload a You Tube movie directly from a phone if you set up a Mobile Profile in You Tube. With a high speed connection, it should generally take a few minutes, give or take.
      • 2
        Edit your movie. Programs such as Mac's iMovie or Windows' MovieMaker are both good-add titles, effects, cut out a bad take, etc.
      • 3
        Resize the video so it looks best in You Tube. The site accepts QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files at 340x240 resolution. There's a 100MB size and 10 minute length limit.
      • 4
        Create a You Tube account. Click on Upload Videos in the upper right corner of the home page.
      • 5
        Create a title, description, tags, category, and set language. The more information the better to help people find the video.



    Tips & Warnings




    • You can also use the Quick Capture feature to upload to You Tube straight from a webcam. No uploading needed.



    • Once you've got a video ready, upload it to other sites, like Google Video.



    • Market the video: post it on blogs, message boards, social networking sites, and email it.


    • Don't post anything that's copyrighted or libelous. Check the Terms of Service.

    Not a problem.

    I went back and took out everything that isn't absolutely necessary since you said you copied it.

    Every mindful of the space thing, don't cha know.

    BTW:

    The pellets in the 10 group shots are 21.14 grain and Kodias Tapered Dome. At POI at that FPS it is right at 31 FPE at 35 yards. One can make consistant and acurrate shots all the way out to about 45 yards and still have some knock down power. Couldn't ask for more in a set up like that.

    At the muzzle it's 40.872. Close enough for me to say 41 FPE. But POI, to me, is what counts.

    Makes it a darn good squirrel gun IMHO.

    But I shoot 32.4 Eun Jin out of my .22 Infinity at the same FPS. That's a whole 'nother ball game----a real hog dropper! (I hope, one day!)
