I remember you at your first one, all giddy to shoot the uzi....

We Usely have a great turn out for these things. Lots of full auto to play with. Just bring ammo, factory and brass cases.

I've seen some vids on YouTube of other Full Auto shoots here in AZ in the past couple of years. Is this sort of thing open to pretty much anyone? I dont have any full auto firearms, but would be really cool to attend a day or so, to meet some people too, and be immersed in the experience. Not to mention see some classic firearms from WWI and WWII would pretty much make my day.

Any info on Where? Price to attend? Camp out overnight? Any official details?

Come one come all (that know range rules). It's at the gun range out there. Actuall address to me is unknown. Bring your guns. Just cuz you don't have a full auto doesn't mean you can't shoot. Get there early to get a good spot. Only so many benches there. After that your going to need a table. I'm hoping to have my 50BMG by then. If not I hope the AR50 is there again.

Offical details? HAHA!

Ok here is the plan, we get there at 7am when they open the gate set up. Shoot till we are tired. Im the one setting up the shoot and i dont have any full auto. Most guys that attend will let you shot there stuff.

Link to the google map: http://maps.google.com/maps?rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS435US435&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=city+of+casa+grande+rifle+range&fb=1&gl=us&hq=rifle+range&hnear=0x872a567f774a2d69:0x60c32efe69f161a7,Casa+Grande,+AZ&ei=_VbgTrLXJ6W3sQKFsbS_Bg&sa=X&oi=local_group&ct=image&ved=0CAYQtgM&iwloc=cids:12072312297821233468

for me it's pin letter "B".

IDK if there is camping.

Can some one stop by and see if the city still does a port a potty? Or are we going to have to rent one again?

OH "Price", Bring a ice chest full of sodas and share?

Is anybody bringing out a 50BMG again? I just got 10 rounds of ammo that a friend got from a store and was not able to shoot them. I was trying to pick up a BA50 before the shoot but I ran out of time.

Is this going to be at the CG range off I-8 & Trekkel road? I can't see the map on my phone.
If so they do have a port a potty, but it smells like complete shit and you will probably get some kind of jungle fever if you dare go in.

Yes you can reserve it or parts of it. It isn't cheap and more importantly you need to have a sizeable insurance policy which is what becomes cost prohibitive. A few years back we looked into it and when it was all said and done it was going to be around 1K to rent the main bay.

There generally is a port-o-potty there, time of year dictates if I would go within 10 feet of it. It is cold now so it shouldn't be bad. I am unsure of the cycle which they use to clean it out. I run into the guy sometimes who locks it up and such with the city on days I try to squeeze in range time after work and before sunset which can't happen this time of year, but if I catch him in the next few weeks I will see about getting the P-O-P cleaned out.

If you aren't familar with the range, there is a large main bay roughly 300-325 yards deep, it has a double berm. It has maybe 10 concrete benches and is covered, the other half of the main bay is a concrete slab but great for pop-ups and is fairly large. There are several side bays that range in depth from 50 to 150 yards. Most group shoots I have done we try to take over the main large bay.

I have never shot a 50BMG but would love too. I have had the privledge to play with many full-autos but never the luck of a 50BMG, maybe I can get lucky. If someone is bringing one and would allow me to shoot it and buy the ammo from them to do it, that would be awesome.

thanks for the work put in to this!

I will just get there at 7am, im not doing a 1M ins policy.

300yds has always seemed debatable to me. Also, be sure to bring your own targets/stands.
Link Posted: 12/9/2011 2:00:26 PM EDT
I will put it on my calender to be there, but if a job pops up, I have to take the work when I can get it. Work has been pretty scarce lately. I am a General Contractor, by the way, but I will take any smaller job I can get. Also, I am directly on the other side of the mountain from the range in CG, so I agree with mjrowley, keep the shots down and not over the mountain.

I have a .50BMG, but, alas, it is "only" a single shot Model 99. If you are still wanting to shoot it, you can buy the ammo from me or bring your own.

Please bring it! I got some Hornaday Vmax that needs to be shot.
I'm trying to get my Desert Eagle .50AE before the shoot but it will be close. We shall see

Hey, I don't care if it is a single shot, I would just like to shoot it. I would love to some day be able to own a Barret 50bmg. I will definitely buy some ammo a take a few pops with it, thanks for the offer.

Call someone with a SAW too. I have a bunch of M856 also.

This was at a Michigan HTF shoot a couple of Memorial Days Ago.

I know dealer that has a SAW, I am trying to get him to come out. Last one of these I went to in CG there was a browning 1919 and some big ass tri-pod mounted beast, but it was a BLAST to shoot. That was 3-4 years ago though. He also had a transferable full auto Ruger 10/22 it was mad fun too.

Link Posted: 12/11/2011 9:47:22 AM EDT
I will be there and bring my M-16 that shoots 5.45x39 so bring some if you want to shoot it. I will try and get my full auto glock done by then. I will bring my 300 blackout with a can some of my sbr 10/22's and my 10" 20ga sxs shotgun. Just bring ammo if you want to shoot my stuff
Link Posted: 12/11/2011 1:37:11 PM EDT

I have a manhole cover that I have moved three times. I would like to set it out at 300 and try some of my .50 API on it. I just need to fabricate some sort of stand that will hold it up with a forward cant and figure out how to get that heavy POS out there!

If you want it at 300 yards why does cant matter? I understand if it was close but hell 300 yards? As far as getting it out there, got a dolly? If you have a pickup and a dolly build your stand at home, set it up and then wheel it out there. Just a thought.

that does not include my wife, 2 dogs and a kitten which I am allergic too, weekend should be great!

Thanks to all who showed up.

Major bummer about the lack of the Full Auto Stuff.

The guy with the most stuff is being aduited by the ATF and he has a "meeting" monday morning.

We will plan another one, maybe to celebrate the 100 year centennial in feb?
