Saturday (3/28) we went to the Big Sandy Machine Gun Shoot in Wikieup, AZ. It was great fun! I got to shoot a M1919 heavy .30 caliber machine gun, Gary shot a .50 caliber BMG heavy machine gun. The weather was fine, we got to meet other shooters including R. Lee Ermey a.k.a “Gunny”. There are lots more photos on my Flickr account. Here’s Gary’s blog post on this event.
On the negative side, I saw some gun handling that would have resulted in the person being sent home if it occurred where I was a range safety officer.

Why waltz when you can rock and roll? So what were the targets? With R. Lee there, probably watermelons. Heh Heh

Jim – The targets included remote controlled aircraft, plastic barrels, armor plates, flares.
Looks like Gary is really diggin’ the 50. Reminds me of a child at Xmas time!
