PLEASE tell me that someone got video of the guy in the last pic in action with that thing!
September 21, 2008, 04:49 PM
The third pic looks like an HK MP7.

I can't believe no one on here has said anything about some of the gorgeous women in the pics.
I'm a bit worried.

It's great to see some gorgeous women shooters, oh yeah lmao at the last pic.

Silencer Shoot?! I love it! I could see the slogans now:
"The best time you could hardly hear about!"
September 21, 2008, 06:54 PM
What in the w-haaa.....
I hope no one calls his name and causes him to turn around while shooting.

Hot girls and suppressors:D
Wish I lived in America:banghead:

Wow, looks like a lot of fun.
That last pic kind of troubles me a bit too. Funny and ingenious, but seems rather risky, beginning with the fact that the guy has to be ultra attentive to *not* pivot his head at all (kind of hard to do with all those gun toting girls frolicking around) and compounded by the fact that the helmet he is using doesn't look too stable. It looks like it just might tilt back with the recoil... anyway, it would be interesting to try out.

Forgive my ignorance, but what machine gun is that in picture 6 and the 2nd to last?
September 21, 2008, 07:29 PM
A KAC chain-saw gun (based on Stoner LMG). It is for fun, not a real product.

I'm disappointed that the m-79 isn't suppressed :evil:

Where did this shoot take place? I ask because I was raised in the same town where AA formerly was out of, and those 3 ladies do look vaguely familiar. I would guess that they're younger than I (32). But I swear they look familiar.

I had even more fun this year than last.
The cars caught fire a few times--tannerite packed trunks, and all that.
Major Malfunction (the guy with the SAW, Minigun, and CheyTac M-200 on his table) was a blast. I've been saving up to buy a can from him (AAC M4-1000) for a few weeks now, and I can't think of a nicer guy to give the money to.
The Kel-Tec guy on the other hand... I can't think of anything nice to say about him, so I'm just going to let it go.
The KAC guys were pretty cool, and the guys from SWR were a blast, just like last year.
The women were kind of distracting. There are some seriously lucky guys at AAC :)
JWF: The shoot was in Carnesville, GA at the Red Hill Skirmish range.
HB: The M-79 didn't need a can, and some of the guys were tagging a steel target with paint rounds mid-day.

Yeah, Major Malfunction is da man. http://www.major-malfunction.com/
That looks like more fun than should be legal, and the most fun you can have with your pants on. :p :)
I want that AAC poster with the skull and crossed AR's. That's just awesome.

We filmed the Silencer Shoot for SHOOTING GALLERY's 2009 season. My friend Eric Katzenberg from the Military Channel was also there shooting b-roll. Eric and I are very strong believers that if we "demystify" suppressors it's good for all of us...I personally would love to see suppressors moved from the $200 tax category to the AOW $5 tax.

I'll try to post my pics when I get home.
Both the Outdoors Channel and the Military Channel were on site and filming during a demo I helped with for Innovative Arms. Yep, they got me on camera looking like a complete idiot not knowing how to operate basic firearms :banghead: What can I say, standing in front of two camera crews and several thousand people made me nervous :o The .22 pistol malfunction was NOT my fault though. Damn greasy Wolf Match Target :fire:
There were dozens of seriously hot women there. The weather was MUCH nicer this year than last. Again I didn't win anything in the raffles, but such is my luck. Can't really complain though, the $55 I spent on tickets and tshirts was well worth it. Heck, I'd have paid that just to get in the door! I definitely had more fun this year than last. Got more sunburned, too...
Robert, thanks a lot to you and everyone else at AAC for doing this every year. I know it's not cheap, but it is appreciated!

Mike- Agree completely.
Getting them on television in front of a viewing audience does all sorts of good for shooters.
The fact that it's your job is just icing on the cake, eh? ;)
September 23, 2008, 12:41 PM
Not really my job. I was helping out a buddy of mine (Phil Woodell, owner of Innovative Arms). He couldn't talk and demo at the same time, so I volunteered.
My job doesn't usually involve cameras. We do our warrant teams in the middle of the night :)

Good to see some smiling faces amidst so much eye candy! I hope the segments are released on the internet later.
I can't help but wonder just how quiet the line was. . .
September 23, 2008, 12:59 PM
There are some clips on youtube already.
The line was quiet enough that I didn't wear hearing protection all day. The loudest thing I can remember was a short AK, maybe a Krink.
