Nothing Like a Little Wretched Excess

I finally got around to downloading the (few) pictures I took at last week’s shoot at the Casa Grande public range. Here’s the guns I took:

From the top (though you can barely see the pistols):
XP-100, Kimber Classic, AR-15, Enfield No. 5 Mk I Jungle Carbine, Mossberg 590, and my 1917 Enfield.

This is what was on the bench next to me:

In case you don’t recognize it, that’s an 18″ barrelled single-shot .50BMG rifle.

With a suppressor.

Thank Jebus.

It’s actually pretty damned quiet for what it is. It’s maybe as loud as my .45. But it kicks like a freaking mule.

If he’d removed the can and put the muzzle brake on it, all my stuff would have been blown off my bench.

Here’s a shot looking downrange.

The far berm is (by laser rangefinder) 285 yards. The mountain makes a quite effective backstop.

This shot is from about 100 yards downrange back towards the shooting positions.

About 50 people or so showed for this one, but the weather was excellent and we all had a good time. What I didn’t know was that one of the Class III dealers had brought an FN P90 and was letting people shoot it. I missed out. Bummer!

Maybe at the next shoot…

Edited to add: This is a picture taken by another attendee of someone shooting the P90:

(Envy, envy, envy….)
