They may have been firing at a balloon for a long time because
they were used to it. Please see the following about training
for a WWII antiarcraft artillery unit, the 443rd bn, at the
beach in SC:


On 15 September 1942, the 443rd moved in convoy through
Blacksburg, Virginia to Fort Fisher, North Carolina. It was
headed for a week's practice firing of the new weapons at both
air and ground targets. The T-28-E1s were lined up shoulder to
shoulder along Fort Fisher's Atlantic Coast Firing Range for
firing at gas filled balloons"

Clear skies,
