Bit of full auto fun!


September 29, 2005, 02:59 PM
Well folks - pretty good day yesterday tho much was ''work''! The whole deal was let's say an organized ''company outing'', so as to give some play time to a bunch of employees. I assisted as a RSO on the turning target range where we had a competition going on, first prize once scoring done to be a Glock 17. On the line we had 14 G17's all NIB and a boatload of mags - loading those was not the most fun job altho several guys helped. Weather was great.

Once that area was pretty much done there was time to go play. I did three courses of fire at that range with one of the Glocks - know what? - I liked it :). It shot very well and I have to say - maybe after all I do need a Glock!

I have edited a few minutes of vid I took to make a short (approx 2 min) compilation of the fun aspect. The SAW was probably star of the show, and even better when dark it was putting down tracer, incendiaries and star bursts! Also we had MP5SP - real quiet that was, and a coupla Mac's too. Add a 50 cal and there was much to enjoy!

The footage near the end was me shooting the SAW but taken by a guy who I reckon was a bit over-enthusiastic with the camera zoom!! So while you can see the pumpkins havin' the dirt kicked up (approx 200 yds) - it ain't too steady!

One pumpkin had an ''insert'' of Tannerite - as you'll see, it disappeared in short order when hit ;)

Very cool, Chris!

And I sat here in my shop and endured our first day of fall weather. The high yesterday was about 55.

So Chris, What does it take to get a job at that "company"? Cause so far all my company outings have been rather boring compared to that!

Hi Dave,

Well - it is a software company primarily, based in that area. I have no direct link to it - just that the club treasurer works for them, and roped me in to the day for RSO duties.

Must admit - as company outings go - that has to be ranked right up there with the best eh! :)

Best, and to Erica.

Man, I thought our company Christmas party sporting clays/pheasant hunt was fun! :eek: It must have been tough duty being RSO, P95carry! ;) The MP5SD brings back some good memories! :evil: The Glock looked fun, too!

Anybody get tagged with the scope on the .50?? Looked real close if not, in some of the clips.

Packer - surprisingly no - I don't think anyone had scope damage - tho as you observed, the eye relief was not over generous.

It was amusing watching different folks on that beast tho - big guys who had shot it before just absorbed the recoil as if it was hardly there and then others just freaked!! :D
