Machine gun shoot


Recommended Posts

Mike Dresner (Lawenforcement Sales) and myself will be hosting a machine gun shoot in Sparta, TN at Flashpoint Tactical Solutions brand new range September 17th.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. 

I have a HK G36, UMP45 and 1919A4 I recently purchased that will be there, along with other guns I've recently built and added to my collection like my Saiga 12 full auto shotgun. Talked to a guy about a M134 Minigun today as well and made an offer. No promises it'll be there, but I'm trying to get one for people to shoot! Should know in a couple days when he said he'd call me back if he accepts the offer.

For those that have never been, this is an amazing shoot. I'd be there if I had the money to blow but it is an experience that everyone should splurge on at least once.

This is a rental/spectator only event. Primarily because of insurance reasons, we don't want anything on the line we didn't bring. Mark, the range owner I'm sure wouldn't care at all if you used his range for shooting your full autos, but the 17th we just can't allow it that day.

Yeah right, anyone can say that. What we need is Proof of Life! You know, like a little video showing that the minigun exists and is actually working!  :D

When I get home I'm taking it to get checked out, then I'll head to the range if everything's good to go and it's ready to be fired. Not gunna jump the gun on this thing incase somethings missing and I blow the rotor because of a missing spring or something stupid like that ($7,000 part and the heart of the gun). Once it's good to go, game on!

I have to ask where would one take a minigun to get it checked out definitely not you average gun smith

I looked the thread over but didn't see anything on ammo pricing. Will it be similar to the Strategic Edge shoot?

And since the admission price is lower, I assume food and drink is a for sale item there?

I'm lucky enough to be friends with guys that use them daily at work. They know a bunch about them and have armorers dedicated to them.

Ammo prices will be slightly higher to accommodate the lower entry fee. It's most likely going to be .50 cents a round for anything not belted and $1 a round for anything belted. .22lr is going to be maybe .15 cents or .20 cents. Nothing's set in stone yet. Minigun ammo will probably be $1.20 a round to accommodate the maintance cost of the gun. 

 

Food will be for sale there, correct. I have a cater coming in grilling BBQ for us all day.

A real store. Just getting their range finished up and this is the big way celebrate that.

What he said. 

 

The owner Mark is a good buddy of mine and we figured this would be an epic way to celebrate the range opening. Marks got some awesome plans for his place, so lots of changes in the future. Hopefully this shoot does well and we head back a couple times a year to make it a tradition.

      The next 2 weekends... how are they compared to Murfreesboro/Franklin/Lebanon?
    • By Grunt67
      Made the trek to the show this am. The crowd was unbelievable. By far the largest I've seen there.
      Prices? As expected, thru the roof. Saw one box of hunting ammo, box of 20, $80.00. Other ammo ran pretty much in the same track. One dealer had numerous cases of assort. ammo, priced on the roof, people lined up to buy, apparently at any price.
      Folks, it's going to be a long time before this changes.  There was still long lines waiting to get in.

      I’m guessing that I’m not alone when I say that I have learned a lot in 2020! I’ve learned that the grocery store won’t always have what my family needs, guns and ammunition have become something of a commodity and the Government sure isn’t going to take care of my family better than I can!
      So, yes; I’ve made some changes this year. I never owned a gun before and now there are four in my household. Although I’ve received the most training, my wife and our 19 year old son have also received training and shoot as often as we can at our local range, as well as to have added a MantisX and dry fire routine. 

      We had “enough” supplies to get through this year’s COVID quarantine, but I’m concerned that more hard times could be just around the corner and I know I could use some input, encouragement and direction from local, likeminded people. 
       
      So, my first question is, “What part of TN do you live in”?
      And secondly, “Do you have a group of like minded, local folks that help you prepare for difficult times?” and if you don’t have anyone, do you have any interest or desire to do so?
      As a response to my own questions, I live in Franklin, TN and would very much like to connect with people who want to build community, help share prepping ideas and be a “friend close by”, which is better than a brother far away...
      Thanks,
      Ray
