Absolutley not, it just means about five or six of the regulars won't be there.

stang and others, Hate to say this 'cause FDCC is great and I'm thankful it exists, and it's another bummer that it conflicts with the camping trip...

But you seriously need to be at Hernando this Sunday. The firepower that will be on display is incredible. Been playing with gunz for 35+ years and the first time I went it damn near scared me.
Quad 50's, miniguns (EVERYONE stops to listen when that thing cranks up), 30 or 40 machine guns being fired at once, tannerite exploding, cars being dismantled.... IT'S F'KN AWESOME.

These shoots are done 3, maybe 4 times a year and this is generally considered to be the BIG ONE. Name any machine gun & it's likely to be there. Bring ammo and ask nice, and you can probably shoot it.

Matter o' fact, here's an open invite to anyone that's never shot one before... 1st mag is on me from a m16 with a LRM 9mm suppressed upper on it. While supplies last. (Ammo contributions will be accepted. )

btw, there's at least 4+ CASES of tannerite to dispose of as well.
See what happens when you light THAT up in the forest.

Had I known this back on JANUARY 3RD when this was planned, I would not have done so. That's why I planned the camp nearly 8-WEEKS IN ADVANCE. Then when I saw this shoot pop up on the forum, I figured that Hernando has how many MG Shoots a year, and how many camping trips for the whole state per year will there be? So the dates remained. Sorry. Hope yall enjoy the MG Shoot cuz I know it's a lot of fun from the one I went to on the 4th of July.

You can look at the bright side, the Forum will have TONS of pics come the following week.

1. Build Party Pics
2. MG Shoot Pics
3. Sleep & Shoot Pics

The Florida Board will be bumping in March.

Sprained my damn ankle and can't make it this time.

which event can't you make cause of that ankle ?

Tom no big deal the Hernando shoot was on their web page calender for about last 4 months, it just did not give the date till you looked ahead on the calender to the month of Feb, It was Tonk K 's that gave me the idea ( thanks Tony ) to host the build party the day before the MG shoot cause I am about 30 min from the range....I think about 10 or more guys would liked to attend the camp out, I was definately in, and hoped the date would be changed due to all the conflicts, but...oh well, I know it will be a hit, please plan another before it gets too damn hot........Mark

Get a ton of pics of your Build Party! I always liked looking those.

It was always Tom's and my idea not to change dates once they are set. As unfortunate as it is, there is always something going on, soebody can't get off from work, etc. Believe it or not, Tom's wife is about 81/2 months pregnant(as soon as we find out who the father is, we'll post) so rescheduling is always difficult. So I go the the next Hernando! Some folks can go to the next campout....or schedule their own!


It's all good!

Sitting in the chair for 30 minutes and my foot swells almost twice the size. Having to drive 3+ hours then walk around and drive 3+ hours back is a tad too much. There is too much to see to just go there and sit.

Will there be any dealers there selling RRA lowers at a decent price?

I would like about 4.

IM me if you have such items.

Just got home from the shoot and didn't take the first picture but, I had my usual GREAT time. I set-up next to tony_k and Lee, the owner of LRM Firearms and his crew, so I had the opportunity to shoot (pun intended) the shit with them all day.

After the weather broke it was pretty nice out, and what could be better than spending a day shooting MG's with like-minded people.

Good Stuff!!

Dang that's nowhere near as crowded as it was last July 4th, now I wish I had shown up.

The crowd is what kept me away from this one but that doesn't look bad at all.

Of all the guns there I like the way those water-cooled .50's sound, nice deep 'thump..thump..thump'.

She has a few MGs of her own M11, Colt M16 with a M169 upper and just bought a HK51
she is looking at getting a 1919 but real likes a M60E4


I had a great time at Hernando and sharing the firing line with osprey and Tony K

I knew it !!

I figured it wasn't her first time behind the trigger when she stepped up to the line, from the stance she took, to the way she leaned into it.

She is Married to Bo she also owns a 77/22 VIDAR + hunts hogs with dogs (no gun used they do not kill them)
She grabed a hold of a HK51 for the 3nd MG she ever shot and handle it like a MP5
But to see the smile on her face after she shot Mac's M60E4 and then turn around and told Bo thats the gun she like the most we all then told Bo you better get on that M60 asap
