This is not just for machine guns, there are plenty of people who bring bolt guns to see how well they can do shooting long range. Targets vary in distance to well over 1000 yards. Subguns can shoot at a few silloutte targets too. No handguns are allowed though. You can see some of the targets on pages 2 and 3 of the photos. Last shoot had 6 or 7 M2HB's and several 50 BMG bolt guns. Last June there was even a quad 50 AA turret.
Nothing short range for the 16's and subguns? looks like it is set up more for the 30 and 50's.
As I said, there are a few silloute targets, posts, small trees, etc for subguns. I didn't have a problem finding targets to shoot at with my M-16/9, M-11/9, and Saiga 12c at the last shoot.
Sounds fun I think I should sign up for this.
