The wife and I had a good time at the event! I can check "shooting a full auto Thompson M1A1" off my bucket list! And as a bonus - we got a ride in a Humvee that served in Iraq! We then went to a Civil War living history encampment portrayed by my old outfit, Battery G, 2nd Illinois Light Artillery in Mount Carroll. We watched two 6 pound cannon demonstrations for a total of four shots. So all totaled, it was a very good day!
I also tried the Tommy. Lots of fun yesterday. I put rounds through both types of full-auto FN-FAL rifles at the DS Arms booth (full length rifle with bipod and carbine with vertical front grip).
Started the day with the Barrett .50 cal. Only thing I didn't try and probably should have was the practice grenade through the M4 under-barrel launcher.
