Picture(s) A Day – Nevada Shooters Desert Shoot – 21 February 2010
Sunday was nearly as good as I’d hoped it would be – about 99%
Uli and I got on the road a bit later than we’d planned, but we still got out there plenty early. I’d say there were a couple of hundred people in attendance who brought all sorts of stuff – regular rifles and pistols, suppressors, machineguns, and even a mortar Yes, this is all completely legal here in Nevada as it is in a large portion of the United States and I’m here to tell you that you’ve got to try it sometime
This was the table full of guns brought by Infinite Arms No, they’re not all NFA items, but quite a few are After all, Infinite Arms is a licensed NFA manufacturer They don’t have to do it, but I know it’s a good time for Infinite Arms and their customers
The Yugo M70 I shot is second from the left and I also got to shoot the Sterling you see to it’s right I’ll have to bring some .223 and some .30 Carbine ammo next time – I’m all for paying for the ammo if someone’s nice enough to let me shoot their gun
The reason you see a picture above instead of video is user error with relation to my camera Yes, those are all machineguns and yes, it was incredibly LOUD That’s my kind of fun!!!
Oh yeah, there’s video, too This is the video Uli and I shot to give you some idea of what was going on out there Uly and I both shot the full auto 10/22 and the AK-47 and I apologize for not having more video, but we were having more fun than we’ve had in a very long time Also, I thought the video would be better from my camera – I’ll be sure to use the real camcorder next time
OK, now THAT’S my kind of fun This video was posted on YouTube and Nevada Shooters by Pachinko Pistola and shows a lot more than mine did There’s even a bit of yours truly with the suppressed AK-47 in this one
I can’t thank Infinite Arms and the owner of that 10/22 enough
I’ll also remember to get some pics and video of the suppressors we got to shoot next time and not get quite so caught up in shooting them Those suppressors were really cool and I’m thinking I may just have to get one for my .22 rifle… Mr. Stoner, you’re a class act and I can’t wait to see you at another one of these shoots – you and Infinite Arms both made the day even better than my normal day shooting which is pretty good to begin with
Remember how I said the day was 99% good? Well, this was part of the 1% that wasn’t quite so good. Infinite Arms brought these targets out and they were supposed to be for rimfire (like .22 LR) only. Someone or several someones shot at it with full power rifle rounds and put those holes in it. Not only that, but they pinned the left stake in with a couple of rounds through the steel support tube. To make matters worse, a bolt and carrier assembly from one of his AR-15s went missing somehow. The great majority of people were great, but these losers need some retraining. I’m thinking they get to run to the 1,000 meter targets on foot all day as part of their penance if they’re ever caught.
At the end of the day everyone was pretty darn tired out and I can’t say that I blame ’em or that I think anyone would change much We had some great fun with great people and some awesome scenery to go with it. It don’t get much better than that
Have fun out there, everyone
