ETA:

I want to thank the members from Calguns that joined us for our 6th Annual Turkey Shoot! We had a host of subguns, light machineguns, heavy machineguns and even a registered mortar. This video only has HDI machineguns but does include the mortar dropping rounds down range!

Hi Folks,

There is going to be a large gathering of shooters from the NVHTF of Arfcom, LasVegasShooters and NevadaShooters on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. If any of you guys or gals will be in Vegas that weekend please feel free to join us. There will be host of MG's and other cool guns out there and MOST people will let you get some trigger time. In fact, some will INSIST that you do and their generousity is amazing. Also, there will be a grille out there and some members are already bringing hot dogs, burgers and drinks for everybody to enjoy.

Let me know if there is any interest and I will provide a map and more information.

thanks,
Ron

I'll be there if I can get the day off.......highly unlikely, but TAG!

If I go, I will have to bring some toy's, so that they can be un-restricted. :)
Thank you for the invite.

I have TRIED various times to get through to Keystryll. Email and PM's have not been returned. One of the mods told me that he is very busy but another member gave me his email. Hopefully we will get squared away.

thanks,
Ron

That is really cool, wish I could go. Vegas is only 10 hours away or so for me, will anyone in Vegas be willing to let a semi-broke shooter stay with them for a night? Thanks for offering to include us Cal Gunners in this shoot :D

I'll be in Vegas, but since I'm there for a wedding my time won't really be my own.... Sounds like fun though!

Gio, you can stay in my penthouse suite at the Wynn. When you get there, tell the manager retired sent you and they will treat you accordingly.:D

Hi Folks,

The shoot will probably start around 10:00am or so. We will have designated "cease fire" times and a one-hour cease fire at 1:00pm for lunch. We will have several BBQ's going with table and chairs. It's a real pain to try and eat with muffs/ear plugs so we figured it would be a great time for "meet-n-greet" for folks.

thanks,
Ron

Crud. I'm in Vegas this weekend for work, but they'll be 16-hour workdays. No time to go play. Shame.

We will probably be bringing out a M35A2 "Deuce and a half" and HMMWV so you can find us. I'm thinking about bringing out some ammo and mags for a "after Black Friday sale" :)

thanks,
Ron

I wish I could make it. My finger is itching to run a couple full belts through my 1919 without dealing with a 1 shot/second rule and my poor 50s are just collecting dust. Oh well, maybe next year.

We try to do this three times a year if possible. We aim for 4th of July, Turkey Shoot and Christmas Weekend.

Also.. for the rest of the folks. At 4:52 in the video Lee starts dropping rounds with the mortar. That's how we roll in Vegas ;)

thanks,
Ron

I had the good fortune of being out there during the weekend and stopped by to shoot off a couple of rounds. I thought it was going to be only a few people, but the turnout was fantastic. Everybody had great guns and I got to shoot a lot of the MGs provided by Henderson Defense. That was the most fun I have ever had, I recommend all Calgunners to go out there every time they have this event. Thanks again Ron!

Regards,
Sonny

Nice! Love the Full autos and the mortar. But NO Tannerite? I just don't understand....
Let me know in advance next time and I'll bring 50 lbs or so.

Hi Ron,

This is Andrew who stopped by your shop for those PMAGs this weekend. Im pretty bummed I couldn't make it out there this weekend but please let us know when the next shoot it is. It would definitely be worth the drive from SoCal. I wouldn't doubt if I could get a convoy of calgunners to make the trip too.

Sonny,

I am glad you had a good time. I was so glad that you took advantage of the trigger time.

Maybe we can organize a Calguns shoot here in Vegas just like Andrew stated in the previous post. Vegas hotel and motel rooms are probably the cheapest they have ever been. I know it sounds weird with a CALguns shoot in LAS VEGAS but you guys (and gals) would have a good time if we planned this right.

thanks,
Ron

I would make it to a CalGuns shoot in Vegas! I say if your in Nor Cal and want to make a thing of it I get great deals on rental vans so we could make the trip super cheap! Although 6 or so guys in a van towing a trailer through CA loaded with firearms might not be such a smart Idea!

I was there and it was as good if not better than the video makes it out to be. THANK YOU RON for inviting us out and sharing the fun guns with us. I will definitely be traveling to Vegas more often now, and not for the strip:gunsmilie:

It was also great to fire a full 30-rounds from my ar. The ar behaved wonderfully unneutered.

Ron that sounds like an awesome idea. I know a lot of Calgunners who would love to have the chance to shoot some of your guns, and I'm sure a lot of people here on these forums would love to do the same. I'll help spread the word at how great this shoot was to everyone I know and on Calguns, maybe we could get a caravan of people to take the trip together and meet up at the shooting spot in the future :)

To everyone who needs a reason to go out to Vegas other than to gamble, you can't go wrong with the meets that Vegasshooters.com organizes along with Ron from Henderson Defense. I walked away wishing I had a Class 3 FFL and was living in NV already. Screw going to the Gun Store and renting out automatic weapons for a stupid high price, all you need to do is come out here and enjoy the guns Ron brings. He was also VERY generous in bring out some(kind of an understatement) extra ammo for people to shoot, but bring out some of your ammo, even if it's Wolf and you can load it into his magazines and fire away till your heart's content. Unless it's the M240, that gun didn't like Wolf ammo :D

Thanks again Ron,
Sonny
