Weekend at the river

Met some of my old buds down at the river this weekend for some July 4th celebration and shooting.

We went down Friday, and planned on staying until Sunday afternoon, but the friggin heat got to me. Even drinking water and Gatorade en masse, I still got dehydrated and had a hell of a headache.

We still go to shoot about 400 clay pigeons with 20 and 12 gauge, ARs, AK, .45 ACP, .44 Rem Magnum, .357 Magnum, .22 LR Sig Mosquito, etc.......

Patrick tagged along and CJ and Adolfo showed up Saturday.

It was still a good time, even if the landowner didn't bring the Ramo .50 BMG "Ma Duece".

Yeah we didnt start the party till 8:30 last night. I put 200 thru my new Bersa Thunder and I must say I am impressed. For a cheaper gun it never showed any issues. Now my buddies PF9 on the other hand. LOL We then went thru about 200 mortar rounds and a Goblet of Fire. I am lucky I can hear this morning.

Whos your Daddy

Oh and FYI Gatorade will fuck you up if you are not working out. Sweat or not there is so much sodium in it any drinking it over a period of hours will give you a massive headache. When I was younger my dad brought me three cases from a GM at Gator. Me and my bestfriend were drinking it the first day all day and got these massive headaches. Told my dad about it, he called the GM and he said hell no dont drink that stuff all day.

I'd never take my $3k camera down there, and I just didn't break out the Fuji Film point and shoot.

I didn't even take a cell phone pic.

Eyes and ears are a must. I've got some hearing loss from small arms fire from Desert Storm. I don't want it to get any worse.

I was drinking a 12oz G2 to every 2 16oz bottles of water. I'm not sure why I felt like shit. It might have been a lack of caffeine. I didn't take any sodas.

I would have brought a few 50s down had I been invited.

Instead we used them for table legs.

The other .50 owner didn't even come this year.

We have a guy that likes to buy 5tons or Duece and a halfs and restore them. He usually drives one down each year, but he didn't come down either.

Not sure the reason for the light turnout, but it was.

The river was a great time except for the ungodly heat. Bunch of great guys and gals out there. If I get a invite to return no camping will be involved next time, I cant rember the last time I have sweat like that at night. I only took one pic out there with the intentions of turning it into a new sig, my damn phone was eating batteries like crazy. Thanks again for having me out there man, I couldnt think of a better way to spend a 4th.

Anyonee is welcome, it's the last minute planning that's killler. We're usually to busy that most planning is done at last moment.

This 4th of July we went out to an old rock quarry on a gentlemans property and shot at a car and some refrigerators. We didnt particularly like the surrounding areas to shoot the 50s in; so like I said they maybe saw 100 rnds and then had a sheet of plywood placed over them for a table.

I think at one point there was $1mil in guns in the bed of teh truck.

It gave me momentary blindness so I must have missed it, hehehe. But seriously though, it was manageable because of it's size. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting, but it was certainly the biggest bang I've ever felt in my hand. The snub nose 500 mag's must be absolutely ludicrous though.

To explain for everyone else, my friend, the land owner has one of these:

http://www.smith-wesson.com/webapp/w...07&isFirearm=Y

and he hand loads rounds at the high end of the loading tables.

I asked him if he would let CJ shoot it because CJ is a large fellow and I know what that gun did to me (it rocked me at 220 lbs). He happily obliged and CJ fired off 5 rounds (all the cylinder will hold). On the 4th round, it bump fired and set off round number 5. I think CJ will remember shooting that gun for a while :0

I can only imagine what would have happened if I had tried to fire that thing. I figure that I would have been thrown into the camp with vigor.

I didn't think I was a complete noob around guns, but maybe I am. What causes a revolver to do that??

Not really sure, but some think that you have to have a VERY solid grip on the gun, and there is so much recoil that it actually backs off the trigger. Since you still have a tight grip, you don't realize that you pull the trigger back again actuating the cylinder to rotate and the hammer to fall.

If I was gripping that thing any tighter i think I would have damaged it, haha. I think it was too tight, probably should have let it climb more. I think that's really the best way to shoot it.

Matt, I can see what you're talking about now.

The closest thing to it I have fired is my father's 44mag, which has the long barrell like that. I grip it firmly but allow it to kick up when I fire.. Though that's what it looks like the guy in that video did too and still had the problem.

I usually keep my trigger finger pretty light though, and do the whole suprised when it fires thing, so I don't think I would put enough pressure on the trigger after it fired to pull it back as double action.

Yeah, and Jim (I believe that was his name) the owner of the .500 mag, said pulling the trigger too lightly causes it to double fire, and I had a very light pull on that gun when I was firing it.
