    Outstanding - well I hadn't seen it so far so - many thx. Great quality and some great hardware - full auto Mini too I noticed.

    Love the cannon - that girl who fired it and also fired the ''twins'' was a riot - oh my, did she enjoy! :D

    Best way to turn cash into smiles and pleasant memories. Think THOSE kids'll ever want to ban FA?

    "Swweeet!!" "Luhckyy!"- Napoleon Dynamite.

    All I can say is I am terribly jealous!! :drool:...ma deuce..:drool:...

    Was there a cover charge? It looks like someone was either being extremely charitable or there was a lot of contributing going on! :D I would pay good money just to be able to pay more in ammunition to be able to shoot all those guns on the same day! Looked like a beautiful setting to boot!

    Where was it?

    I wonder if taking the Bradys and Feinstein and everyone that's working against us to one of these would change their views. :confused:

    Wow that was a pretty cool vid, glad to see all thoes kids enjoying it. I did think that one woman did get a little over excited, although I can't blame her, I might do the same :D

    That full auto mini-14 was a pretty unexpected suprise.

    great video!

    me and another C3 dealer were considering hosting a MG shoot but we have to find suitable land to do it at...... :D

    i think alot of people in the Austin area would like something like that.

    Oooh ... yes please! Here's one vote from someone in Austin that'd like something like that (and pay good $ to try a few full-autos ... never tried one before :( )

    But think of the children! The lucky, lucky children. Wish my dad had owned something FA when I was growing up. :(

    What...there wasn't one person who lookeed like a drooling, murder-crazed fanatic in the bunch! I throught the VPC said these weapons will make killers of us all!

    Very fun video thanks...I especially like the fact that one of the few people who exibited any trigger control at all was the lady shooting the belt-fed HK from the hip

    I just watched it again - no sound on last night.


    That, by far, is the best firearms video I've ever seen - calm music (not any heavy stuff, making things seem scary) combined with smiling kids and other happy faces (not a camo-clad mall ninja in sight!) make shooting sports seem just what they are - friendly and fun!


    What a great video. :)

    It wasn't a Mini-14; it was an AC556. They're actually pretty common, and quite cheap ($5-6,000) compared to the alternatives.

    Excellent

    Seeing this makes me eternally thankful that Dad did have FA Thompson for us kids to play with.
    Thanks, Dad. Now pass me another magazine...

    Be safe,
    Dave

    That was by far the coolest short video I have ever seen. Best I have been able to shoot is three round bursts with an AR 15 (at least I think it was an AR 15, it was a while ago)

    That was awesome...

    What is sad is that all I could think about while watching was how much money was being shot up in one burst. I am very jealous. That video is pretty much my wildest gun fantasy.

    *wistful sigh*

    Total cost of all the guns was probably >$100,000.

    Ammo bill was probably right behind it. :evil:

    I just love hearing that chattering of full-auto fire, seeing the brass fly, and the links pour out the side. While private ownership of FA is great, it's the public shooting of machineguns (particularly with women and children behind the trigger) that makes it fun. I can't imagine a more entertaining way to spend a Saturday than with a dozen people (close friends, family, etc.), a few machineguns (and some semi and bolt guns too, of course), a cooler of soda, and a private place to shoot.

    I really liked the "technical" with the M2 mounted on the top. Fun little vehicle.

    I really must move out of California...here, the local ranges either have really small booths, make you fire through tiny slits (so guns don't accidentally go full-auto, kick around, and kill someone like they did to one guy a few years ago), and generally don't allow rapid fire. They most certainly do not permit full-auto fire (such things are verboten here), and definitely do not permit actually MOVING while shooting. We're becoming a state of benchresters, it seems. :scrutiny:

    Anyway, that day sure looked like fun. I wish I could be there for the next time around...
