Hey all-

Thought I would share some of the fun from last weekends shoot.

I was there for a very short time but my lovely wife got some good footage of me, and I got some good footage of her.

The opening scene is of her shooting her Mini-14. Maybe I am biased but there is something really hot about a curly headed brunette blasting away at a machine gun shoot and apparently enjoying it!

The next scene is of me on an original WWI (!!DROOL!!) BAR. I shoot ten rounds on the slow gas setting then 10 rounds on the fast setting. I have GOT to find a way to afford a BAR. Anyway, no footage available but...... My wife ran a magazine through the BAR and dang if she didn't have a HUGE grin on her face when finished that 20 rounds off. I also have to add that 20 rounds of full auto .30-06 is a TREMENDOUS amount of firepower. I cannot imagine being on the wrong end of this monster. A very formidable weapon even by today's standards.

Clip 3 is me dumping 30 rounds through my 7.5" M16 and clip 4 is me shooting bursts through my 7.5" M16.

Wow that's cool. Never knew that the BAR had select full auto mode.

Yep. My dad said that in Korea, the guys with the BARs' would sometimes try to fire 'em slow, mimicking a Garand to get the BG's to return fire---and then switch over to full auto when they found where the rounds were coming from!
