Our modest camp


Lars (MiamiARfan) Looking over the equipment


The arsenal (3 AR's, several 9mm and 45 pistols, a M1 carbine and a Mossberg 590)


Also featuring Joey's Mauser


Set up for some long range shooting.




Joey (JoeyA) Blasts the targets


Lars and Dan (danpass) Hit a full Pepsi can (notice the mist downrange)


Another installment of the Pepsi challenge


More blasting




We even did some penetration tests on the steel target frames. To quote Old Painless, "Pistol rounds are pistol rounds, and rifle rounds are rifle rounds." The 9mm and .45 penetrated the same (not at all) and the .223 and 8mm went through like the frame wasn't there.

Looks like you fellas had a lot of fun today. Hopefully, I can be in on the action the next go round!

We had a great time. Lars took a bunch of pics too, so I assume he'll have them posted up here soon.

Very nice shots. I wish I could have been there.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 4:12:13 PM EDT
Glad you guys were able to get some trigger time on such a fine day.

I sure wish I had the day off.

JoeyA, when the SHTF don't forget to drop that rear elbow. You don't wanna get winged!

Nap, the bayo on the shottie is the shiz-nit!
Definately a liberal bedwetters nightmare.

I know! Unfortunately I can't say no to OT on the weekend. Work is the root of all evil....toys that is!

I'm surprised how open the land is out there. Having a range with 200 yards is a rarity in SFL.

I'll try my damnest to make the next shoot!

I found out too late last night, already had plans. If you guys decide to do this again, post it and let us now.

Checked the faces pretty close, no one I know. We'll work on that.

The weather couldn't have been better.

Where was the shoot - i must have missed the announcement :(

Judging by the ground it looks like others aren't cleaning up their mess. That's gonna end things eventually.

well, its been like that since long before I got there, and that was laround 2001. Genrally the only trash left behind is brass, and then once in awhile who ever skeet shoots(a rarity) leaves what you see on the floor.

Yeah, the skeet-shooting elitist snob crowd sure is the yellow armpit stain in the world of white t-shirt wearing gun owning America.

We leave steel or brass. They leave plastic.

I'm all for cleaning up the public land we use for our shooting ventures.

nice pics and post..that was'nt a range, where did ya'll go shooting? Tell the guy with his elbow out, tuck it in or he's gonna hurt himself if he ever decides to shoot FA that way.

Edited to add, looks like a couple of you need to tuck those elbows/shoulders in ,unless your shooting a shotgun...if he ever decide to go FA, you're gonna wish you changed your stance and shoulder discipline.

You're also gonna have hard time keeping it on target too...you'd be amazed at the power of a FA AR going through a 30 rounder. The MP5 is a little better but you still need the discipline and stance...once you get used to it, it will become second nature.

So True NGman. I'm guilty of the elbow thing as well. (not to mention having to remember to keep m gut sucked in too) It's really hell getting old [%| This is my first AR and I can use all of the constructive comments I can get. You're welcome to come out and shoot/coach whenever we go out next.

A couple of other locals have indicated that they would be interested in the next one and I think that based on Sunday, that will be sooner rather than later.

Anybody who wants to can send me an email with their name, and email address and I'll put together a mailing list so that I can email the South (and North) Daders for the next time we go in addition to posting it in the Florida Hometown Forum.

I would love to go shooting with you south florida guys..I live in Northwest Fl (Destin) and do get to go south from time to time. As far as shooting, I spend 1 day a week with our local SWAT team, I just learned/trained on how to do quite a number of gunplay/handling methods the past couple of months. They are teaching me how to clear rooms and basic CQB protocol right now. A wealth of infromation even after owning AR's and AK's for a number of years now. You'd be amazed at how you can acquire targets and keep your balance with a weapon just by the way you hold the weapon and stand. The "un-natural" way of shooting will become the natural after training.

I am supposed to be going down the first of April...so we'll see.

Just a short post here about our shoot.

Participants:
1. Napoleon_Tanerite
2. JoeyA
3. MiamiARFan
4. danpass

Weapons:
1. AR15 with ACOG, Mossberg 12ga pump (with bayonet ), Beretta 92, Kel-Tec
2. AR15, 8mm Mauser (BOOM ), Beretta 92
3. AR15, 1911, Taurus Millenium, S&W Model 659 9mm and Walther P22
4. M1 Carbine with subsequently broken mag catch , Beretta 92
any others?


Lessons Learned:
A. Its fun shooting without any specific range rules

B. Its fun shooting with laid-back people who understand firearm safety (hence not needing any cast-iron range rules )

C. Its fun shooting as fast or as slow as you want, and its not any dangerous to fire fast. HA!

D. Crosswinds really affect bullet travel

E. Headwinds affect bullet travel

F. Tailwinds affect bullet travel

G. There was a lot of wind

H. It is still possible to hit the small gong about 250yds out using an AR15 with an ACOG (good work N_T)

I. It is surprisingly easy to put rounds on target while walking, changing mags and shooting rapidly while using a Beretta 92

J. Sealed, shaken-up, Pespi cans do make a nice cloud but not like one-gallon water jugs (we didn't have any jugs, see Box-of-Truth)

K. It IS possible to shoot an AR15 one-handed, ghetto style for multiple rounds.

J. It is NOT possible to shoot a 12ga one-handed, ghetto style for multiple rounds (what I mean is that it falls out of your hand on the first shot)

L. Even at close range, pistol rounds (45 or 9mm) will NOT penetrate 1/4" thick steel, neither will buckshot.

M. Rifle rounds will pretty much penetrate anything and multiple rounds will chip away at concrete pretty well

N. Bayonets penetrate paper and carboard very easily (accurate too )

O. It was a good thing we brought water and Gatorade to drink

P. Its good to have more ammo than you need

Q. It is surprisingly easy to put rounds on target while walking, changing mags and shooting rapidly while using a rifle

R. You can eat a food bar, chew and still put rounds on target, one-handed, using a Beretta 92

S. A plastic bottle shoved onto the end of a vertical stick is surprisingly durable. Multiple pistol, rifle and shotgun rounds fired at it, all at the same time (think the Predator movie), at less than 10feet, do not knock it down (lots of holes, but it stays put )

T. The legend about ricochets is way over-rated . Blowing up concrete blocks is a different matter .

U. Tracer rounds are still visible during the day

V. Bump-firing is cool

W. Rounds go fast when bump-firing

X. An assistant was required to keep mags loaded

Y. Having a canopy, large table, and some chairs made life A LOT easier (thanks MiamiARfan).

Z. It was a beautiful sunny day and shooting was fun . Major thanks go to JoeyA

I read the list & it seems like you guys were missing the most important thing: a BBQ!!!!

I have a small portable grill that I can bring if I can ever find time to get away from my domestic duties.

Keep me on the list for updates on the next meet.

Anyone who wants to be notified by email as well of the next shoot (which I'm sure will be sooner rather than later) drop me an email and I'll add your email to my SDade shooters distribution list and send out the next invite via email as well as by posting on the forum.

BTW Danpass: I also had a S&W Model 659 9mm and Walther P22

Then you need to know about my spot just south of Kendall Dr. off Krome ave.

Shoot to your hearts content. At times, 4x4 is a necessity. During the dry months ie now,
it's no problem.

IM me and i'll try my damnest to explain where it is.
