Machine gun shoot day
Hit the machine gun shoot this morning. As per usual, it was freakin awesome. They had the usual boats and cars spread out with explosives (just to add a little extra bang) in the pit. I shot some video of the canon with my camera, but I am having trouble getting it to upload properly. Have to get a video camera one of these days so I can get some quality videos out there. Usually don't have trouble uploading pictures, but, blogger seems to be giving me grief today. Have to try again later with other pictures. I saw a lot of interesting guns and toys, but resisted temptation. Not sure if that is good or not. No garrand ammo this time out. They had bulk 30-06 Korean, which runs a bit hotter than the lake or the Greek, but is good. Only problem was, there was quite a bit of corrosion on the lots they had out there. So, I took a pass this time around. I still have a good stock pile and will see about ordering more from CMP. I did see something I never found before. They actually had canisters of Lake City M1 carbine ammo in clips, in cardboard, in the bandoleers. I can usually find the garrand packed like this, but this is the first time I found carbine ammo like this.
Next weekend is the Indy 1500, the weekend after, is the Kentucky Expo gun show in Louisville. I went to a military show there that was outstanding. Hopefully, my brother and Og are able to attend next weeks Indy show. It is always nice to catch up with them. Hopefully, I am not working that weekend. I am hoping on getting a timney trigger for my AR. Didn't have any luck at the machine gun shoot in finding one.
