Yup, I'm the poor bastard that got stuck with TacticalAssault and Massivedesign all day.
Fortunately there was pretty much endless gunfire, so I didn't have to listen to them for the most part.
I'm going to forgo the fancy slideshow, and just list out my pics old-school style . . . like we did back in 2013.
Actually, let's start with a video . . . because this one makes me LAUGH MY ASS OFF every time I watch it.
Mind you, I didn't do much better, but the point here is that nobody got video of ME.
SOG had a table, and an area where they gave you a brief into to knife-throwing. SIG556, how do your young daughters compare to Dan, skill-wise? (Click below for video.)
Here's a shot of a Barrett .50, first with the suppressor removed from the rifle (standing on its end on the table near the muzzle), and then attached. They don't allow 50BMG to be shot at the range . . . so we didn't get a chance to try it.
We were waiting in line at the Kriss booth when Colion Noir showed up . . . fanboy Brandon was right there with the iPhone.
Mr. Noir of course headed straight to the front of the class while the little people (um, that was us) waited in line:
But finally it was our turn to shoot the suppressed, full-auto Kriss Vector. It had semi-auto, two-shot burst, and full-auto modes:
Here's Dan and Brandon in all their glory (click for video)
We got a chance to try Tac-Con's 3MR trigger. This is the trigger that has "regular" semi-auto mode, and also a mode where the trigger assists in bump-firing. First watch how the pros do it:http://tacfirecon.com/
Then watch how Brandon and Dan do it (click for video)
No video of me . . . which is good, because I sucked even worse than Dan.
I think it would be fun with some practice, though.
The semi-auto Steyr AUG was pretty cool:
Some of you may recognize this YouTuber, Iraqveteran8888. He was doing some filming today.
We took a crack at the Glock 41 (long-slide .45) and Glock 42 (small .380). Impressions: The Glock 41 was a big .45 . . . and not surprisingly, was easy to shoot well. The Glock 42 was nice and small, and very easy to shoot as well; it wasn't snappy at all, as many little .380 pistols are. I've love to have a chance to compare one side-by-side with other pocket pistols. Here's the Glock booth and some pics of the two guns and mags together:
Here we are shooting the Glock 41:
And the Glock 42:
TargetVision makes a couple of cool systems. One is a remote target-changer (they're on a roll, just roll it up when one target is finished), and the other is a remote target camera that operates up to one mile away:
IWI had a great display of Tavors, in both 5.56x45 and 9mm Luger, and in both LH and RH:
And of course . . . we shot them.
Here's a random pic just to show you how freaking AWESOME this range was:
This was the table as the Redring sight booth. Not shown is the Keltec KSG that they had.
Dan and I took turns shooting clays with that little bitty short-barreled Remington 870....
Check out these cans of Federal ammo. There are thirty rounds of 5.56 in each can on the left, and not nearly enough rounds of .22 in the cans on the right to justify spending $120 at CTD.
This is a pretty badass AR in .300 Win Mag, from Miller Precision Arms:
It was a hell of a day . . . I wish we had another day or two, so we could go back and see and shoot more!
