So back in 2016, Bloke filmed the Murtenschiessen in early-BotR quality, with the history of the Battle of Murten 1476: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUev2ZCmqQ4
This year, both Bloke and Chap were invited to shoot by the Société de Tir de la Ville de Fribourg, one of the oldest shooting clubs in Switzerland, founded in 1493, so only a few years after the Battle of Murten itself. Have a look at their website here: http://www.tir-fribourg.ch/
Having filmed it once already, they decided to show the event from the shooter’s perspective, with headcams. A bit FPS game style, but ending up looking down on the rifles rather more!
And since we’re on a back-to-the-roots primitive shooting roll at the moment, we shot with unmodified K31’s. Well, Bloke “cheated” with a fine elevation corrector with a guesstimated setting between 200m and 300m cos his front sight is too sizes too long…
Thanks to Thierry for inviting us, and to Anna for operating the handheld camera while we shot!
Come to our competition on 2 November 2019! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nO33aP77ZjI
Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
