My friend and I have just returned from a "Machine Gun Adventure", conducted by Scottsdale Gun Club (a.k.a The Armory).
It was EXCELLENT!!
We had alot fun and I highly recommend that all of you AZ folks (and anybody else for that matter) get out there and sign up for one!
Here are some video's for you...
IMI Uzi Pistol
H&K UMP 40
FN M-249 SAW
We had so much fun, and the SGC made it a great day. A big thank you and kudo's !!
What do you all think of the video.......?
Please, share your comments.
Good collection of NFA guns.
It just makes be pissed at the gun laws in this country that make it so expensive to own full autos.
awesome, good video too, i would especially love to get to shoot a glock 18!
223-Buckaroo: That M240 looked the smoothest firing of them all. What was the best auto you shot in terms of controlability and feel, etc.?
That UMP .40 and G36 looked harder to control. The Steyr Aug was looking fairly good until the guy decided to hose the rounds out with one pull of the trigger
The only machineguns I've shot have been the Uzi and MP5. The Uzi was an ?InterArms? import POS, while the MP5A3 was very sweet despite being from the 1970s and having a lot of rounds put through it. Didn't hiccup up once, even with the 40 round mag the dealer had for it. The Uzi would jam unless you would hold down and pull the trigger, even after we bitched at the range guy to clean the damn thing out.
The M240 was definitely smooth, mostly because it's such a big gun. The M249 was easy to control too. (just not when you're going apeshit with a 100-round belt ! )
The MP5 was extremely easy to shoot, and it seemed to be the most accurate when firing bursts. The UMP seemed to jump around alot and was pretty hard to control.
The Glock 18 was fun to shoot, but really hard to control. The first shot would be on target and then the rest would miss. Best tactic would be to aim at the enemy's feet and let the gun walk up.
The M4 was probably the easiest rifle to shoot, but the G36 and AUG were both pretty accurate as well.
I highly recommend going out for one of the adventures..... money well spent !
Is it just me or do they seem REALLY quiet?
It looks like some of them aren't even wearing hearing protection!
How come they are so quiet? Espically the M4!
Damn Buckaroo! Looks like a party!
The only bad thing about playing that much with F/As is going back to your semis! Kinda anti-climatic!
How much does a day of shooting like that cost?
I can assure you they are loud. The camera just can't pick it up, so all it records is a *pop*. Nothing we shot was suppressed.
BTW, we were wearing foam ear plugs.
Most guns rent for about $55. The 10 gun package we took was advertised at $250 per person, but we were only charged $185 each (there were 2 of us). That includes your choice of 10 different guns (of 14) and 300 rnds of ammo per person, 30 per gun.
You can get all the details at www.scottsdalegunclub.com
We bought additional ammo too, which was average priced.
