Thanks for sharing. Cools weapons there. Do you have even a guesstimate of how many rnds were fire? I'm just curious.
Glad you enjoyed the photos. Check the link for additional photos and make CERTAIN you watch the videos! Good footage to give you a feel for the action. http://www.vegasshooters.com/forum/video/slowsubs.wmv
The total number of targets were 23. If a shooter's weapon and skill allows them to pull singles, (the gun's selector must be set to full auto), and they defeated each target with a single tap, then the two courses of fire would have required no more than 46 rounds to neutralize. Many shooters spent in excess of 50 rounds going for the sweep. I'd say the high ROF weapons easily burned 100 round each run.
Each shooter had the option of sweeping the bowling pins with a continuous pull of the trigger to earn five seconds off their total time. It's not as easy as it sounds or looks in the videos. I know many people used in excess of fifty rounds on the pins which had to be cleared off the table to be neutralized. Simply knocking them over didn't score the bonus. Each shooter had to base their decision on whether to go for the sweep on their magazine capacity and their skill. You could easily burn up the five second bonus if you had to change mags. Risk versus the reward had to be weighed in a shooter's decision on whether or not to go for the sweep.
That looks like a lot of fun. I could get into that if I could afford the ammo.
It IS fun! Most of us aren't rich, we just drive old beater cars, live in shacks, and eat Top Roman noodles and Vienna sausages. Our kids go barefoot. Full auto must be like crack... you'll sell your soul for ammo.
Those pics give me ideas of where to go on my next vacation.
I'd be happy to take any MS Shooter out for a little trigger time if they make it out to La Vegas. In the mean time, contact SubGunFan locally and I'll bet he'd be more than willing to share his nice collection of subguns.
