Yeah it does look a little odd, but what the hell it seemed to work for him. That's me and some of my group next to him shooting my Bushmaster. The one below that with the fridge and bowling pins were some of my groups targets. The fridge was quite completely ventilated by the time we left. Hey SWS, I wish you would have introduced yourself. I would have liked to meet some more folks from AR15.com

For future reference when and where in Ohio is this event? Is it open to anyone? When is the next one? Looks like a lot of fun.

It was held at the Mapleton shooting club just south of East Canton on S.R. 44. It seems to be turning in to an annual event. It's only "advertised" on the net as far as I know. Full autos and sport utility rifles are encouraged. Open to all shooters. No charge, Campy Bob pays the freight(range rental fee) and donations to off set the cost are humbly accepted. Keep your eye on the events forum.

Guncrazy.....you need to put the next "bulletfest" on the must do list. It was without a doubt an absolute BLAST. I kinda liken it to wine tasting event except its rifles instead of wine. Lots of nice folks and lotsa nice weapons. Its also a great way to learn to really concintrate on the mental aspects of shooting....muzzle blast from all sides and my personal favorite of being pelted by the long strings of 762x39 empties boucning off the hat and back.( uncle buck...was that you??) My only advice...bring ammo...lots and lots of ammo [:D]

I would also like to thank Campy for a great time. I was watching my video (especially of the explosions) over and over when I got home. God must have approved, since the rain stayed away while areas just to the north got soaked. Thanks again Campy and all those who came. Slefelar (brat boy)

Wasn't me with the AK but I brought him. Sorry about the brass shower. I knew AK's can throw the brass but that one had to be ejecting over 25 feet.

But as a weapons instructor I should know better too. A lot of experienced shooters have played around with different positions untill they find something that works for them. I was in "train the new shooter mode" when I looked at it.

Striker, I'd have corrected it too. All he would need to do is bring is arm in a little tighter to his ribs and I always have people try setting the delta ring between the first two fingers. Keeps your hands off the guards and provides a perfect balance on an unweighted service rifle. If that doesn't work for the shooter...then go back to your old way.

no problem, striker...you should have seen the poses out there on the line! lol! hmmmm??? what IS the "correct way to hold a 1919 belt fed assault pistol (10" bbl., top front 90° grip, rear pistol grip)??? heheheheh! what weight distribution gives the best bump fire smoothness? can you really control TWO h & k 51's simultaneously...one handing them and holding the buttons down??? offhand shots with the barrett can be problematic, too! lol!

no....they won't allow me near anything that fun! besides...after shooting the pkm (pulemet kalashnikova modernizerei), i can now die having said..."i did it all!". lol! again, i'ld like to thank anti and chuck for assisting with r.o. duties. and what a great bunch of physically fit firefighters we had! i can see all 6'4" of "towman" (ak-47net) scrambling up the berm at full-tilt-boogie to dive into the woods and fight those acidentally set fires! to the firefighters! HOOOHAH!!!

uncle buck....no worries..I kinda got a kick outta the "brass shower"...what was cool was when I'd catch a "rainbow" of empties flying over me outta the corner of my eye. As to the junior smoke jumpers.....Smokey the Bear himself would have been proud of you guys!!!! Smokey says: Do your part...help stamp out tracer/incindiary induced forest fires! Campy...I got some bad news for ya...I don't know if everyone can wait a whole year for this to happen again. HINT HINT [;)]
