Some of you may remember me from my thread about helping an elderly collector getting his collection ready for sale. The collection is almost ready and we are looking to get some video of his machine guns running properly. Are there any ranges around the Watertown or Southbury areas that allow machine guns?

Private land or Metacon?

ETA: I know of a guy in Watertown that may let you shoot them on his farm. But I'd like to be invited

If you can't find a spot, let me know. I'm in New Milford and on private land.

Correct on Metacon, but you'll likely never get a chance to grab a membership.  The wait list is LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG and we'll probably all be dead before it ever clears.

Thanks for the private land offers. I might have to take one of you up on your offers. The main reason that I am looking for an indoor range is because of the weather. Because I only get up there once a month and they are hitting the market towards the end of the month, an indoor range is what I am mostly looking for. I don't want to get covered in rain if the weather doesn't cooperate.

The range in Norwalk and the range in Torrington both allow machine guns.

Delta only allows up to 7.62x39. I need a range that will allow 7.62x51 from a HK51, G3 and Valmet 78.

The range in Norwalk allows those calibers.

I talked with them earlier today. It looks like that's where I'll be heading.

If you want an outdoor range, send me a pm over the summer. I have a range at a club I am a member of

We ended up going to Fairfield County Firearms & Archery in Norwalk. It was pretty funny to hear everything go quiet every time I let a burst rip from the HK51 or Mac 10. I don't think most of the guys in there had ever seen a machine gun fired. Thanks for the suggestions.
