If you live close to or are in central Indiana, let's go shooting this Sunday the 19th of June. Yep, that's right, Fathers day. What a better way to spend the day firing full auto weapons! Fire off a email to me and let me know if you want to attend. It's at a farm just East of Indianapolis. We can fire anything, but no cannons AMAFRANK. But you can bring that PKM or RPD to play with. Along with the Thompson's you have and the MG 42's biggrin.gif

Mike,


What a great idea !!!

I'm off that day so it looks like a go for me as well. Seldom do special events and my days off occur together so I'm thinking this is a sign. I can bring a couple or so of my C&R's. Do you have a time in mind and how far east of Indy is it?

Thanks !

Chuck

What about the .50 cal boys rifles Mike???? Putch and his buddies are shooting .54's and .68's. The boys aren't cannons....

Bring it on. I want to shoot that little toy. I think my broken down shoulders could handle it. See you Sunday. And don't worry about that fancy Euro-boy's racing going on Sunday, it's not real racing. laugh.gif
Now that 25mm might be a little too much.

Well it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Indiana. Clear skies, weather in the mid 70's, just great. Those who were able to make it there, had a blast! Met new people, met old people. Lot's of new guns and a couple of Thompson's to play with. And Santa met his match. Sorry kiddies, you won't be getting a visit this year from the little fat bastard. We will do another one in the fall or late summer. Until then, well you'll just have to watch the videos!
Frank, how 'bout that race? Good-bye to F1 in the USA

Mike,

Had a great time !! Thanks to you, our host and everone who attended. It was a beautiful day for sure and we all put many rounds downrange; mostly on full auto of course. No idea how many rounds were fired since everyone was generous with their ammo and guns, it was impossible to track. Seemed like we were all old friends by the end of the day.......can't wait for the next one !

Thanks again !!

Chuck

Mike:
Kudos for putting together a great shoot! I met some really nice people and had a great time. Can't wait for the next opportunity. Much better than that silly Grand something or other...

Thanks again!

Mike, thanks for inviting me and putting together a great shoot. a special thanks for letting me and Amy do our first drum dumps, and for letting me star in a genuine Mikesmachineguns video.
splagt, & first sergeant, thanks for letting Amy and me shoot all of your toys. Whenever I get the 1921, I will pay you back.
