I keep hearing about Bulletfest what is it? Where is it?  Can I come?

Check the meeting and events forum. Yes, you can come. It's a one day open shoot mainly for SUR's and full autos. Admission is free, Campy Bob pays the freight but donations are accepted. Once the shooting starts the line is hot for about an hour at a time. 15 mins. to reset targets and the line is hot again. The line runs about 200 yards long (maybe a little longer) only about 80-90 yards deep. Still it's a great time and any target is welcome as long as you can remove it when your done shooting for the day. Lots of web shooters from several states show up. Party at a local camp ground the night before and "socialize" after the range shuts down for the day.

I hope this helps.  But I don't know for sure if any of the information that I am giving you is correct.  I'm just pretty sure that it is.  I believe it is in North Canton, Ohio in a little town called Lewisville, Ohio.  I believe it's the last week of June and as far as I know, it's just a bunch of good old boys getting together with all their machine guns and having one hell of a big shoot.  I heard something about they take cars, refrigerators, tv's, anything they can shoot at and put it out at the range.  Russ at Alexander Arms was talking a lot about it at the BRC.  Sounds like if you're into the military type stuff and machine guns, this is the place to go.  Like I said, I hope this helps if this is the one I am thinking of.  I know two good friends from Ohio that are hopefully going to be there.  It sounds like a heck of a machine gun shoot.

Hell, I wish I could make it there. It's only 20 min. from my old house in Green Township. But now that I live in Arizona, it's just a little far to drive. Guess I'll have to wait for the Arizona shoot

Actually it's in East Canton I know it's a little confusing. Around here we have Canton(the "big" city), North Canton (North of Canton) and East Canton (East of Canton). The range is at the Mapleton gun club (primarily a trap range) Off of SR 44 south of East Canton.
