I went to my 1st ever MG shoot/BBQ/Karaoke party yesterday. laugh.gif Man what a time, no big oddball MG's there. Were two 1919 beltfeds, many AK variants, couple of HK's, couple of Uzi's , a few Mac 10/11's, a silenced M3 Greasegun, a Sterling, a Mk2 Sten, a Reising, a Swedish K, and a Madsden M50. Only one other than myself had a Thompson there, an older gentleman with a nice green parked Bridgeport M1. He also had a C&R MP40 but it was put up when I got there. I took my WH 28 and it was pretty well looked over.. it fired flawlessly except when I loaded the drum incorrectly. I got to see fondle and shoot all my tranfers. The Wilson MP40 was awesome.. fired everytime with every mag and was requested by two of the other shooters to play with, the WH M1 is in excellent near new condition, I had a problem with it taking GI mags but there was a guy there with AO mags and two out of three of them worked great. The Sterling was fun to shoot had no trouble with it using any of the DSA mags I just got in. The only problems I had were with the Reising. It was a jammamatic. didn't like any ammo I used but I only tried out one mag and the gun felt like it needed cleaning and possibly a new set of Wolff Springs. The other Reising had a problem too.

I talked to a lot of the guys down there , it was kinda like being at a big party with a bunch of friends you hadn't met yet.. the older gentleman with the Bridgeport is thinking of selling it.. Hmm.. I'll have to think about that , I had a couple of guys talk to me about buying my M1, they both shot it and liked it a lot. We pulverised a Bass boat, there was some of that Tannerite there and the host made up some plastic bag gas bombs out of ox/acete too that boat never had a chance laugh.gif . I'll post some pics when I download them. One lil AK that he had made was a short stocked 8 " barreled version with a compensator. Had a Krinkov forestock, Man that thing was LOUD! blink.gif There was another Krinkov version there with no stock that I thought the handguard was gonna catch fire it got so hot... blink.gif

Was a great time and nobody got drunk or got hurt, range rules were followed and everyone had a good time...there were some dang fine lookin' ladies there too.. and the kids loved shooting the beltfeds and the Uzi's I can't wait til my next one..

Glad you had fun. That was my 2nd time out there. At the end of the day me, Mike (the guy with one of the Sterling's, Sten, Reising, and the Mac's), and 2 other guys were picking up some brass to relaod and we estimated we shot around 30,000 rounds. That bass boat never stood a chance biggrin.gif

Glad you had a good time and I hope it is the first shoot of many to come!

I have never really been to a shoot that wasn't fun, nor do I know anyone else who has. I suppose the noise gets to some, but not me!!! wink.gif

Maybe see you sometime in the spring at Knob Creek (or, if you haven't yet joined the TCA, maybe now is the time and I'll see you at their next shoot!!! laugh.gif
