Big Sandy Spring Shooters
Big Sandy Shoot-Range report
Just came back from working on the range and all roads in to the site are in great shape. The gun show area is also looking good. We cut a new road on the west end of the impact area to better serve the cannon shooters as it will enable targets to be set up on the ridges directly in front of their positions. This road will also enable us to set more targets for the machine guns in that area.
All the reactive products have been ordered plus we have Star targets donating a ton of their reactives. This will defiantly be a target rich environment. The big Sandy RC air force will be there with 33 aircraft.
We are just about sold out of good shooting positions as we only have 2 spots available so please get your registrations in ASAP. If anyone needs good 50 cal ammo just let me know, we will have some extra at the shoot.
The matches are good to go with the exception of shotgun match being canceled due to low signup. We will have a combat pistol match substituted for that match so leave your shotguns at home and bring your pistol.

It’s that time again! With Spring rapidly approaching it’s time to start preparing for the Big Sandy Spring Shoot to be held on April 4th, 5th and 6th, 2014.
Please send in your applications with your friends to try to provide for optimal line placement. Tell our extended machine gun family, in the event their name did not get on our e-mailing list, about the shoot and have them print an application off our website. We request all applications be submitted by March 10th so that we have time to set up the firing line and get your line assignment back to you. Applications after that date will be assigned first come first serve.
We will again have the Big Sandy Gun Show. The gun show will be held in the lower area spectator parking lot under a huge Tent. Cost for a table is $50 which will include a table and chairs. Each additional table is $50. Please see our web site and download the gun show registration form and mail it in. If you have any questions on the gun show call Katie at 928-782-7966. Those of you that are vendors on the shooting line can still be a vendor on your firing position for the $100 fee.
We will again be offering 30 minute classes by our instructors for $25 each.
· Combat carbine
These classes will be scheduled as to not conflict with matches and major shooting. Additionally, we are offering one-on-one hour long instructor led training for $50. The instructors will have canned lessons such as combat carbine, submachine gun, sniping, combat pistol or you can dictate the shooting/training session you wish to be trained in. These will fill up fast, please call and schedule your times. If you have any questions please feel free to call.
Star targets will again be donating a large amount of reactives that will be added to what we normally provide at the event. Big thanks go to
We are going to hold a suppressor demo at this event so we encourage everyone to bring their suppressors and join the fun. There will also be suppressor vendors which will also participate in the demo and you are encouraged to sample what they have.
Matches are being planned for the shoot and there will be a $5.00 match fee added to cover prizes for the matches. This fee is only being paid by shooters that are participating in the matches. If you’re not in any matches you don’t have to pay the fee. The $5.00 fee covers as many matches as you wish to be in. if you’re a spectator and wish to be in the matches please contact us and we will make arrangements.
Food will again be provided by the 4H club. Concession hours will be from Friday breakfast through Sunday breakfast.
Before heading to the shoot check our website for current road conditions. Make a note of site contact phone numbers encase you find yourself in need of assistance or etc.
We pride ourselves in our efforts to provide everyone with a safe place to shoot and thank you for your continued support. We look forward to hearing back from you and hope to have you join our MG Shooter’s family for another “REALLY BIG SHOW.”
