Yes, we should have at least one Barret M82 there, plus several other new (and old) cool things....like a civil war black powder cannon and crew doing demonstrations!  :o  :D

Honestly I think an attack helicopter with mounted M134 is necessary.

Come shoot the Tavor 7 at Bullpup Shoot 2018 on Sept. 15th!
 
Open to the public, shoot demo guns for only the cost of ammo!
 
(No, we don't know when the Tavor 7 is shipping, but you can ask the IWI reps that will be there!  ;)

What I would like to know is if they will have the Tavor12 there  :drool:

 

I have a slight issue that seems to draw me to oddball 12ga semi-autos like a moth to a light. 


When you're betting for stones in an archery contest, you shoot with skill.
When you're betting for fancy belt buckles, you worry about your aim. And when you're betting for real gold, you're a nervous wreck. Your skill is the same in all three cases - but because one prize means more to you than another, you let outside concerns weigh on your mind. He who looks too hard at the outside gets clumsy on the inside. -Chuang Tzu

They said they couldn't commit to bringing the Tavor TS12 shotgun, at least not as of yet.  If they commit I will certainly post up here.

 

We do plan to have an MKA 1923 semiauto bullpup shotgun there to at least see and handle, aka "the not Tavor shotgun that looks more like a Tavor than the TS12"  ;)

It is! Dont miss it! You'll have a ball!!!

I always have a hard time deciding what to bring... I've been a rolling arsenal when heading to this event..LOL!!

My advice? Bring ammo BY THE POUND!! Hehehehehe

 

I've gone twice...Missed it last year and have no intention of missing it this year....

 

Made a couple of giggle vids from previous years... :)

(If I get some good cam stuff I image I'll do up one for this year...)

In case you are not familiar with the location of The Site Training (which is a bit "out in the boonies") here is a map we put together to help you find your way!

Almost time!! :frantics:

 

I did some supplementary ammo shopping this weekend to add to the poundage that I want to bring... :)

I'm nearing an estimate of nearly 1000 rounds in variety...

Tho I dont recall much..if any .22 shooters in the past...I'll have a brick I want to bring as well(Not counting that in the round estimate)... GO AHEAD AND LAUGH... I love .22!...its a hoot! :)

 

One thing I wanna try...I picked up about 100 rounds of tulammo STEEL .223.  I'm curious if any of my gear can run it.  (Could never do this at my normal ranges of course)....

 

Also did a bunch of cleaning... Had one BCG that was nasty...glad I got that done... :geek:

 

Weather forecast looks good!

 

Looking forward to it all...the vendors...the outdoor shooting..and hopefully seeing some fellow ICer's!!!ly

 

I regrettably missed this last year... Not happinin' this year. :no:

So....

Who else showed up?

I had a blast!!

But...daaaang..it was HOT.  Wearing all black didnt help either.  I spent way too much time looking for shade...LOL!!!

 

I brought along 'a bunch'...shot 'a bunch'...

We had a 'Mad minute'..well..more like a few mag dumps..but it was definitely cool :)

I managed to get some video and I'm working on it.  I should have something to post in a few days.(Kinna busy right now..)

 

One discovery that was nice...the 'evil looking' MSR's were able to eat steel cased .223 with no problem! 

So next year I'll bring more than just 100 rounds of that stuff. :)

 

Thank you "The Site" and Manticore Arms for an OUTSTANDING day!

I missed it. :Crying. =-(:

 

I ended up getting hand surgery on Friday and no driving for 24 hours. No shooting for at least 6 to 8 weeks either  :cry:

Gee, thanks...

Maybe I'll come and heckle you while you run the course. ;)

I can't shoot but maybe I can smell the powder...

I was there and shot 8 out of the 9 full auto guns available and the 50 cal and it was fun. Disappointed that the rate of fire for the AK-47, AK-74 and the UZI were slowed down and not really full auto as advertised.
