    Looks like fun. How do you shoot? Pay per mag? Are there silencer demos/comparisons?

    Yep, cost to shoot is per mag. It would be nice if a dealer was there with just demo silencers, but the best I've seen was when they limit shooting to suppressed weapons only for an hour.

    Actually, I think a separate event for people to demo cans would be a good idea to repeat as I think it has happened in the past.

    Anyway, it's great event and a really cheap way to get to shoot a variety of FA firearms. And the waiting time is much shorter too.

    I plan on taking my son, that Saturday he turns 13. I think that will be a birthday to remember. Anybody recall how much to shoot a weapon?

    It will really depend on the weapon. My son and his friend shot a Barret .50 cal last year for $10 a round. That's a gun he will remember shooting. Most of the FA guns were $20 to $30 to run a mag thru them. There were some belt fed guns that could end up costing you quite a bit.

    I totally forgot about this until someone mentioned it in a WTS thread. Bumping for others who might have forgot as well.

    Does anyone have normal bolt action rifles people can shoot? I’ve been thinking about a bolt action .308 for a long time, but I’d like to shoot one before I buy.

    Edit: What are the rules on bringing in a small back pack?

    The only bolt action rifle I remember last year was the .50 Barret sniper rifle. There might have been a few others to demo suppressors, but that really isn't the focus of the event.

    Bring it.

    I wish it used to be like the old days and have competition shoots with trophies and bragging rights. Like in the 90's. Now it is just a money grab free for all fun shoot. If that is your thing than cool have fun. I like to be competitive when I shoot unless I am just test firing something I built. It used to be really fun to go througfh all there courses of fire.

    Ok. It was probably a crazy thought on my part to think someone might have a bolt action .308. I have no opportunity to shoot one before I buy, and I won’t buy one unless I get to shoot one first. I want something that isn’t too recoil heavy. I want it to be fun to shoot, so unless I can find one to shoot, I’ll probably end up with a .243 or nothing.

    I figured small day packs were ok, but I wanted to make sure.

    Just wondering for you guys who have been there. Are there any food vendors there?, or is it pack a lunch. Trying to be prepared and not leave to get some grub.

    I went years ago,and at that shoot cameras were kind of frowned upon. I did make sure to ask 1st.
    Has that changed with the advent of cell phone cameras ? I mean,cameras are everywhere these days,and maybe more acceptable ?

    Put another one on the list that wants to know about food and cameras. Being a photographer, I Never go anywhere without my camera.

    I remember there being some sort of food like you would find at a gun show.
    Just don't forget the hearing protection.
    My daughter and I were all set to enter, and then my wife decided at the last minute to join us.
    I had to give up my Peltor ear muffs, and only use foam plugs.
    There was a guy there last year with a full auto .308 rifle that sports a 2-1/2" barrel, and boy does that thing bark.

    People are cool with cameras, but I would stick with taking photos of the person you know shooting, or the firearms themselves. If you don't know the person shooting, courtesy suggests that you ask permission first.

    I took photos/video of my son shooting last year with no issues.
