    Fun Event and very well run and organized, great job SIG!!!

    The headline is a little misleading though, admission was $79.00 and included 10 stages, which means it was $8 for every gun you shot. Not a big deal, be not “Free” either. If you wanted to shoot more stages, you were allowed to pay for more,

    The good thing about the $79.00 price of admission was that the lines were short. I only had to wait maybe 15 minutes in one line and the wait time for the rest, on a Saturday, were less. I’d rather pay than have to waste my time,

    To shoot the two new Army Machine Guns was an additional $50, limited to 50 people per day max, so all three days were sold out. SIG said that they only had a limited supply of 6.8×51 and that was the reason. Hopefully they do it again next year and bring enough ammo. “Fingers Crossed”.

    The only other two criticisms I had was that the vendors are should have been behind the firing line, so they received more traffic. The food trucks and tables were close to the firing line, so the vendors should have been closer too.

    The second criticism is they should have brought some of their existing line up in Full-Auto, frankly, people want to shoot machine guns and a 9mm MPX or their 5.56 guns in full auto would have been nice to shoot as well, even though our Overlords say we can’t buy machine guns made after 1986, it would still add to the fun.
