Our group of .50 shooters will be at Angeles Range this Sunday (19th) if anyone wants to come out. You don't need a .50 to show up and if you want to try one out just ask. We'll be at the far end of the rifle range, can't miss us.

Don't worry about the earthquakes we've been having because you won't feel them while the .50's are rockin'. :D :neener:

Hi there,

what time are you guys gonna be there?

I think it'd be cool if we could gather a buncha THR's out to Angeles Range.

The range opens at 9 am, some of us get there around 8 am to save some benches for some of the others. You can drive up to the benches and drop your stuff off and then park your car, makes it easier if you plan to bring alot of stuff.

Just ask for Shawn, any of the regulars will point you in my direction. Don't forget to bring along all your evil black rifles.

50 Shooter
November 13, 2005, 03:44 PM
Out of our group I'm always the first person there, range opens at 9 am but I usually show up around 8 am. This ensures that we have X amount of benches saved for everyone.

You can drive your car up to the benches to drop off your guns and gear. Tell the office people that you're with us and only pay $5 to shoot all day. One last thing, NO steel core ammo. They frown heavily on it, they will take it away and keep it until you leave. I don't like it any more then anyone else but it's their range and their rules. Plus we have to deal with the Kali fire season being 24/7/365.:rolleyes:

One of the guys will have some range friendly (.50 BMG) ammo for sale if you need some. BTW, you don't need a .50 to shoot with us, if you want to try one just ask.

Does the South African ball have a steel core?

Beetle Bailey
November 15, 2005, 01:22 AM
sigstroker If you've already got the ammo, you can check it yourself with a magnet ;) . If it sticks, it won't be allowed. If you are shopping for ammo, I don't know about the South African (I assume you mean the .308 win?) but both the Austrialian and the Argentinian .308 win surplus are okay.

50 Shooter Okay, this time I'm gonna make it to one of your shoots, but my biggest bore rifle is only a puny 8mm Mauser :o . How long do you guys stay? I usually don't make it out to a range until noon. . .

50 Shooter
November 15, 2005, 02:12 AM
BB has it, use a magnet.

Just to let you know, ALL surplus .50 BMG has a steel core. One of the guys will have some loaded ammo for sale if you need it. The ammo is turned brass solids in the profile of an M33 bullet.

BB,
Most of the guys stay until about 2-3 pm, a few stay until they close. Like I said, you don't need a .50 to come out and shoot.

Black Majik
November 16, 2005, 02:30 AM
Beetle has convinced me to come out this sunday, so I'll see you guys there.

Plus it'll give me a good chance to finally meet you .50 shooters.

Ken,
Your 8mm is still louder than my puny .308! :D

Ken,
Your 8mm is still louder than my puny .308!

When you hear the sound of a .50 BMG, oh heck, when you feel the sound of a .50 BMG, my 8mm is gonna seem like a little chihuahua barking.

No, I meant .50 BMG. I have a stash of it but it's buried at the back of a storage locker, and not easy to get to. I didn't want to dig it out for nothing if 50 shooter already knew if it was steel core.

Yep, better to leave it at home as they frown on ALL steel core ammo in any caliber.

Was good seeing Black Majik and iGSR96 again, too. (Thanks for bringing the Baer, Rich.) Don't forget, we're gonna hit up the practice at Prado the first Sunday of December. Go here for directions: www.shootprado.com. See you guys there, eh? ;)

Shawn,

Thanks a bunch for your hospitality today at the range. I cant tell you how much fun I had today shooting your .50 (and ben's Serbu .50). I just love plinking at 600 yards :D

I think I'm partially deaf, my right ear I cant really hear much, and my left ear is still ringing... but at least I hear it. :D

Mike,

It was fun shooting with you guys again. I take it tomorrow you're gonna be at Rettings ay? Good luck with it! :D

Let me know when you guys are gonna go to the Prado matches. I'm interested. Does that mean I'm gonna have to buy more gear?! I'll sit on the sidelines and cheer you guys on. My scores sucked when we were getting timed. But it was fun!

Ken,

Thanks buddy. I spent 2 hrs after I got home looking thru rimfirecentral. I still cant believe how smooth that action is. And especially how accurate that damn thing is. DIE RECTANGULAR STEEL! :D

Benny,

As always, pleasure shootin' with ya. Finally wore that shirt, I think you knew we were all gonna meet up, thats why you wore that shirt today. A conspiracy I say!

Overall today was fun, we had multiple steel targets to shoot at instead of one we're all trying to hog and shoot before the person next to us hit it (SGV GC). :D

Til' next time!

iGSR96

As I will be going shooting on Xmas though(long story) and hitting the indoor range before that week I may just have to make the January shoot. And when is someone going to organize another SGVGC shoot, maybe after the holidays?:D

Damn, I really wanted to attend the next shoot y'all did, but I am going up to Duarte on that day to shoot with my dad.

With the city of Azusa managing to bribe the ACoE and get SGVGC's lease pulled, he wants to shoot at Duarte as much as possible before June 10.:(

I can see the both of us going to AC after June, though.

Hope y'all have fun.

Okay guys, no need hi-jack the Angeles thread ;) . I'll organize a SGVGC shoot for January :D . Details TBD (when I get a 2006 calender :o ).

As far as Dec. 18, it sounds good to me. I'll see if I can drag along a few others :) . I can shoot my .45 Auto one last time before I re-barrel it. And a .45 is almost as good as a .50, right :p ?

Hey Paul,

Angeles is about 20 or 30 minutes from the 605 & 91. 605N, 210W, exit Osborne. Right on Osborne, left at next light. Go up the hill, Angeles Range is on your left hand side. :)

Oooh... looks like we're starting a monthly shoot!

Ken, if we shoot at SGVGC.... is Mike gonna bring his steel out again? Is there a way to rig the rifle steel to handle more abuse...? I dont think it liked getting pounded by 8mm and .308's all too much last time :D

I think we can think of something to make that rifle steel more durable. But dang that things fun to shoot at. :evil:

If you guys are going out to meet up with Shawn and the rest of the .50 cal guys, I'll meet you guys there.

50 Shooter
December 7, 2005, 01:34 PM
Hey BB,
I'll bring my .45(4) and you can tell me if it's as fun as a .50. See if I can get a couple of the guys to bring out the 500 Magnums. Those are almost as much fun, especially when they're loaded with 700gr bullets.:what:

Beetle Bailey
December 8, 2005, 01:04 AM
Just found out from Mike that he'll be out of town on Dec. 18, but I can make it, so why not? ;)

Richard, you can shoot my CZ452 again as well :) . I'm gonna keep bringing that little .22 until you break down and get one for yourself :D . Also, I still need to try out my new-to-me Spanish FR-8 rifle :cool: .

Shawn, 500 magnum, huh? Sheeesh! I've only got peashooters compared to you guys :o . Thanks for your generosity.

Hope to see everyone there!

Ken,

saweet! I was so gonna get a 452, but I found another deal that I had to sell my Colt Gov. .380 for. Hey, the gun I found was unfired supposedly, and I'm the 3rd owner :D

Shawn,

.500 S&W mag huh? I remember coming back to look at my .308's and Ken looking at his 8mm and thinking, dang ,this looks tiny.

And then the .500 compared to anything... wow.

Ever shot the .460 SW mag yet?

btw, where's Ben... surprised he hasn't peeked into this thread yet. :evil:

December 8, 2005, 03:44 AM
CZ's got waaay too many cool pistols not on The List. :fire:

Yeah, I'm in Vegas that Dec. weekend. Gonna bring my Mom to go see a Sam Hui concert.

We definitely gotta do the Fish Canyon shoot again. Will I bring out my steel plates again? FO' SHO'!! The armor plate can handle the 8mm's, '06's, .308's, and any other caliber not in 50 Shooter's collection, as long as it doesn't have steel in it (core or jacket). The crossbars and legs, however, are not armor....:( If you hit what you're aiming at, it shouldn't be a problem.

Rich, you and Benny missed out on Prado, man. Ken and I pretty much embraced the suck pretty hard. First time shooting rapid fire, timed, in a match-like environment. Wasn't pretty, but it was definitely a challenge and learning experience. We've decided to go every first Sunday of each month for the practice sessions. It's a good change from just plinking at the range. If you decide to try it, don't do .45 like I did. Way too much recoil in rapid fire for newbies like me to handle. Go 9mm, and get a Blade-Tech or Fobus holster. Then prepare to get schooled by Grand Masters posing as old fogies. :D

Yeah, I really would like to have a Stainless CZ75 to go with a Hard Chrome CZ52, but I can't get the former, and most Cali FFLs don't wanna touch the latter. (Gonna have to get a C&R for that one, I guess.) Hopefully the Stainless CZ75B makes it on the list soon.


Oh and what time do y'all meet at Angeles Crest? I told my dad about this, and he said he might be willing to cut our day at Duarte a little short in order to go up there.

December 10, 2005, 12:24 PM
The range officially opens at 9 am, myself and a couple other of the .50 shooters get there about 8 am. We do this to save some benches so that our group will be together and to keep an eye on each others toys.

Some guys leave around 2 pm and others stay until the range closes. Come on out and bring your dad.

*** UPDATE ***

I forgot to add this, you do not need to sign up in the office if you've shot at ASR before. Come over and sign our roster sheet of shooters and sign in/pay there. This will save you time and money as it only costs $5 to shoot all day if you sign in with our group.

If you want a target stand you'll need to go to the office and get one, if they ask tell them you're with us. This is on the HONOR system so please return the target stand. If you shoot it up please pay for it as they charge you for it, if the stand is shot free just place it back in the holders.:)

Starting off the new year with a double dose of shooting. The regular monthly shoot is on the 15th at Angeles Range. For those of you that have signed up to try their hand at a 1000 yard match, it's on the 29th (*tentatively) at Desert Marksman Range. The match is being put on by Tom Miller, some of you have met him at the local gun shows selling EDM .50's.

Space is limited for the match and if you want to join in you'll need to contact Tom, I'll pass along info if you need it. If you want to come out and watch you can go to www.dmrpc.org for directions. Lastly, dress WARM if you come out. January up in the mountains can be very cold and the wind races through that area.

* Added that as weather could disrupt the shoot, i.e. rain or snow.

I wanted to go to the shoot on the 8th but work and having not yet started loading for the match is ruining things for me.:uhoh:

Well, on the bright side, I didn't have to try to endure the long car ride with the Garand and the AR in the back seat :uhoh: . I don't think they get along and I'm pretty sure they would have gotten into an argument somewhere on the 210 freeway ;) .

On a more serious side, it was cool when I was getting both those rifles packed up last night because I had never had both out at the same time before. Other than the sights and two stage triggers, they seem like opposites, but I really do like both a lot. I really wanted to shoot both on the same day :( . I guess "Sproing" vs. "Ping" will have to wait until next time. . .

I was in AZ for the weekend (perfect weather there...) for a Light Sport Aircraft presentation/seminar and as it happened they had a number of WWII warbirds on display as well. (Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ)

Most of the old bombers still had their guns in place and there were some unsual features I've never seen before:

This backplate grip/trigger assembly added to this M3 uses trigger actuators for each forefinger, rather than the typical butterfly/thumb assembly:

Yeah, if you haul ass, you can still make it to ASR after Dim Sum. It gets dark around 5:30pm, so if you get there before 2:00pm, you should still have a few hours to shoot. Our quasi-routine is to shoot rifles first, then pistols later in the day (need more sunlight for rifles), so maybe just join up with us on the pistol side.

silverlance, ASR has two pistol dueling trees with two targets each, IIRC.

Hey All, I'm planning to go on Sunday along with my wife. This will be my first THR shoot as I've been in China for the last two years. My wife is a recent immigrant and was taught to shoot handguns just a week or so ago by IGSR96 himself :D She's eager to get out to the range again (good catch by me eh? :D ). She'll be shooting .22lr through a handgun (Kimber TLEII with a .22 conversion kit). I'll likely bring my SIGpro in .40 and my SU16b in .223. Be great to meet you guys in person!

I'll wear my Molon Labe polo shirt for easier ID. Wife will likely be wearing her 5.11 shirt and sport a SIGARMS baseball cap :D

Sorry I didn't get there until just before 1 o'clock (but I did warn you all).

LeoC Great meeting you and Penny; too bad we couldn't spend more time together on the "handgun" side. There's always next time.

silverlance Sorry we missed you, but somehow I think we'll run into each other eventually. . . ;)

50 Shooter Don't worry, Ben took great care of us. I got to shoot one of his .50 BMG's, and then a .50 DTC back to back I couldn't tell the difference.

iGSR96 Even though they were only mouse-guns, I hope you enjoyed the .223 rem and the .22lr rifles. They are great practice guns and also good for introducing new shooters!

Silliest moment: Me shooting the tripod mounted belt-fed semi-auto 1919 slow-fire without even using the sights! :rolleyes: I kept hearing "It's not a sniper rifle; it's not meant to be a precision weapon!" in the background when I was shooting, but old habits die hard and I was weened on bolt-action rifles :o .

My only regret (other than not cutting loose on the 1919) was that I didn't spend enough time getting to know more of the people there. . .

Beetle Bailey
December 16, 2006, 02:49 AM
California has banned the sale of .50 BMG rifles, but if you already had one from before the ban and registered it, you get to keep it. If you must have a rifle in .50 cal (besides the muzzle-loaders) you can try a .50 DTC, which uses a shorter case and the same projectiles as .50 BMG. You're gonna have to handload for it, but it's an option.

50 Shooter
December 16, 2006, 10:54 PM
There are many options besides .50 BMG but you'll have to do your own work (see pic).

Next .50 shoot is on 01/21/07 at ASR (angelesranges.com) Tell the office you're shooting with the Fifty Club to get a discount on the range fee. We set up on the far left side of the rifle range.

If you bring out your M2HB, just be aware that ASR doesn't allow steel core ammo!

There are a few Boys 50BMG conversions around. I've seen some over in AZ, but not yet in SoCal.

The Fat Mac is a Gale McMillan design that didn't really go anywhere. Though accurate, it eroded barrels way too fast!

Just to add about the Fat Mac, it was a 20mm case that was highly wildcatted down to 50 BMG. Like Ben said it ate barrels way to fast for anyone to want one.

You'd be suprised at all the different ways that MGs were mounted in Aircraft, a lot of it was simply "figured out" as they were mounting it at the aircrafts base during the war.. for several years it was really a hodge podge of differing ways to get the extra firepower into the aircraft, especially the slower more vunerable twin engine bombers. THe extra 50 mounts were used on the B-25s as well as the B/A 26 Douglas invader (most noteably during Korea), The A 20 Havoc, the B 26 Maurader.. etcetcetcetc...

My old partner from the mid 80's was the grandson of Hap Arnold, and even though I knew a lot of aviation people for years before this, I met a LOT of people through my partner.. including many US pilots/aces, German (yes I knew Dolfo Galland and Gunter Rau.. etc).. and Brits.

Actually the most facinating were the Germans, closely followed by the Americans, because they always had great stories of Americans being Americans!! And sorting all the stuff out on the fly.. getting it mounted etc etc

Anyway, got a ton of old books and mags on this stuff, aside from what I know... yep, I"ve pulled M3s out of the wings of "retired" WWII aircrfaft from South of the border... especially P47s... Built my favorite M2 from an old rusted M3...

Loved the fact that I didn't have to pay for the ammo!!

Never a big fan of Angeles, I used to shoot over at DM for many many years.. I haven't shot at Angeles in 25-30 years.. last range I was at, was the "new" Thompson range over by Piru... what a collosal PITA to get to!

Or maybe they were smelling to much gunpowder/smoke and got little high on the fumes and hallucinated me there.:uhoh:

We're usually on the far end of the pistol side (right side) near the shotgun bay from noon til' closing.

Beetle Bailey
September 16, 2007, 12:36 AM
Well, the .50 cal shooters usually set up on the far left side of the rifles area. If you get there early enough you shouldn't have trouble finding them. Since I love to sleep in and since I also don't have a .50 cal, I'm gonna get there some time after noon and set up on the handgun/blackpowder side after paying a little visit to old friends.

BamBam-31
September 16, 2007, 01:40 AM
Actually, I think Beetle Bailey meant that the .50 cal guys shoot at the far LEFT side of the rifle range (if you're facing downrange). We tend to set up at the far right side of the pistol/shotgun/rifle side near the clay machine. We shouldn't be too hard to find--we're the crazy guys shooting the 100 yd. steel gongs w/ our pistols. :p

This thing is cool; like some sort of space gun!


It's a Ruger 22/45 with a red dot. The previous owner cut out the finger groves from a Hogue wraparound grip and glued it to the frontstrap. It makes the pistol a lot easier to hold.

Thanks for the nice pictures and I also had a lot of fun. In addition to the cool stuff pictured, I got to shoot a .50 cal and a 7mm Mauser! And the best part was seeing you guys again.

Slinky and all,
Just look for the .50's at the far end of the rifle range by the clay throwers. Oh and if you want to shoot your .50 BMG rounds just ask. The range opens officially at 9 am but we usually get there early to set up and save some benches.

You can ask for 50 Shooter or Shawn, either way everyone in our group knows who you're asking for.;)
