Cannons at fall Big Sandy 2017 Oct 20-22

Post by dwing » Fri Apr 21, 2017 3:36 pm

We are working to have a large group of cannons this upcoming fall Big Sandy Machine Gun Shoot October 20-22. We have a very good start on commitments from people coming. If you are a cannon shooter please consider coming out this fall There should be many unique and interesting pieces there. The shoot organizers have added a good number of cannon targets. We are working to have more than 18 cannons there plus the normal complete line of machine guns. If you haven't been before it's a great shoot. Probably the best in the country for shooters. http://mgshooters.com
If your gun doesn't leak oil, it's time for a bigger gun.

We should have a very strong turn out for this event. There is still time register. We have many cannons that have committed to be there. If you are a cannon shooter, register, bring your gun and come on out.

If you "wait till June" to come out to the 2018 Cheyenne Wells Machine Gun Shoot you'll probably be alone....its in May.

There were over 20 artillery pieces there as well as a very full line of machine guns. Great event. Two live fire recoilless rifles M27 and M20, a d20 152MM gun, T124 76MM high velocity gun, a PAK 35/36, M5 3 inch anti tank gun, 57MM US anti tank gun, 25MM peautux, 7 37MM bofor guns, M3 US anti tank gun, mortars, solothurn and others. Hundreds of large caliber rounds shot. Thanks to Ed and Kenton for another great event. If you haven't ever been to the Big Sandy Machine Gun shoot you should consider it. They have it twice a year, in the spring and in the fall.

Hmmmm?! as the excuse for no assistance I was told the sign up was down by half from last year and they were going to lose money....guess that wasn't quite the truth. But after a bunch of prep work on the cuff and lots of advance notice to BS (an appropriate initial) that was the excuse given. SO BS KMA
