MATCH .308

Win 3131 and I'll let you try the LWRC M6A2 (FA!).

Hot factory pistol ammo and you can check out the: Uzi, MAX-11(both 9mm) and M-10 .45

3131 is Winchester .223 and I'm just messing with you...PMC .223 is okay. We'll be running through a case+ of PMC.223 that day.

.308 Match HPBT is all we run...

9mm, we have SMG's so HP's are OUT (the deform on the feed ramps/cause probs). PMC doesn't seem to function 100% so we run hotter/better 9mm.

.45 PMC is okay as the M-10 will eat anything.

Here's the drill: Stop by, say hi, shoot a mag or two and meet more folks. I've seen that if you linger around a particular table you start to make the folks there wary..as they'll want to walk out on the range between shoots and don't want 'new friends' around a zillion in firearms...if you know what I mean. We actually had to ask some 'interesting' character to MOVE ALONG last Feb...otherwise the rest of the crew/crowd was a bunch on very good people. But that 'lingering weirdo' really made for a f'd up scene...especially when he wouldn't stop talking to my boys (a near death experience for him).

I was stoked to catch this thread. I missed the fourth of July shoot. But it looks like I'm going to miss this one too, I'm going to be out of town that weekend. Damn!
Maybe next time.
I really want to get into a full-auto gun at some point in time.

My mistake, not a 30mm - but a French 25mm SAL Puteaux.

It's ok, What did it do to the cars

What do you expect? It's a french gun. The rounds surrendered a few feet before reaching the cars and laid down in the dirt.

Arfcom attendance on the firing line varies, I've seen a real "meetup" there, although various members will be there.

I'm not going to make it this time.

I saw that- so we'll have to get together elsewhere; hopefully I'll get to meet some of the others there. I'll see if I can't bring and fly a BFL flag so I can finally meet some of you FL ARFCOMmers.


You're always welcome to join the Southwest Florida crew for shooting and camping at Babcock-Webb Public Shooting Range. We'll probably have the first camp out in November.

I'll be working as RSO on the firing line that day. I can hold a nice spot on the line for you if you would like Just look for the RO with a SA TRP 1911 on that will be me or ask for George B.

George- save me a spot behind a quad-fifty or even a mini-gun.

I'm attending just to go watch and meet some folks, but I'd like to get the GF to fire some cool toys, so if you know anyone that might be able to make that happen, let me know. I'll definitely look you up.

Anyone know if there's food there? I'm willing to bring some grub and cook it up if people are interested... we can set up an ARFCOM hospitality tent.



Most of the ARFCOMers are just right of the gate

I'l have my M16 with me , BETA MAG and 1000 rnds of ammo Your welcome to give it a run

Hot Dogs and hamburgers in the Cub House. Bring a cooler for drinks

Good idea Mr. A!

A lot of arfcomers go...isn't Tony K a regular at Hernando? I met him there (finally) in Feb. We'll (me and my two sons, Benny 14 and Nick 12) be right around the gate (center). We got there just about first last Feb and had a great half day of shooting as we ran through $2000 in ammo before noon!
I'm bringing the arsenal and any arfcomer's are welcome to run 'em (especially (perhaps only) if you bring ammo unless you OWN arfcom or something cool like that) except for the M-10 .45 as it runs wild...its no 'first machine gun' experience.

Big fun had by all last time and we look forward to meeting more arfcomers.
