Once again the Commonwealth will be hosting a military style full auto shoot at OK D-Day.
The shoot will be held on Wednesday, June 9 and is open to everyone at D-Day 2010. It will start at about 9:30 AM and will end at about 2:30 PM. The convoy to the range will leave the Commonwealth compound at 9:00 AM, so don't be late. Please bring your own vehicle or make arrangements to ride with someone. You may also want to bring something to drink or eat. The rain date will be Thursday June 10.
This shoot is open to anyone 12 years old and older. Minors under 18 years old MUST be accompanied by a LEGAL parent or guardian. No Exceptions. Please don't ask if 11 years and 11 months is close enough, because it isn't. Have proof of age, just in case the question comes up. A legal guardian must be authorized by law and documented by the court to represent the minor in all decisions pertaining to the minor. The father of a friend or older sibling is not good enough. The father of a friend or older sibling holding a legal guardianship document from a court of law is perfect.
For 2010, the cost to register is a non-refundable $85 and you have to buy the rounds on site. The owner of the Class III weapons insists there be at least 30 shooters, before he will commit to coming. Hence, the non-refundable $85. The registration fee allows you to shoot any of the weapons offered. If you know youíre going to be there, go ahead and register. If we donít hit 30 shooters by May 1, the shoot will be called off and I will refund all monies. Once we hit the magic number, we will take all walk-on shooters at $85 each, cash only. Please try to bring exact cash. The cost of the rounds is extremely reasonable and offsets the initial registration fee. Rounds are cash only. You may not bring your own real steel or bullets, but you can show up and take all the pics and video you want, at no charge. We had 48 shooters in 2009. This year, we are trying to offer an M2 .50 Cal. HB. We do feature various household appliances and cars for the shooters to blow up. Yes, I said BLOW UP.
If you wish to do any kneeling, squatting or prone shooting, bring some sort of pad.
There will be no off-hand or Rambo style shooting. Anyone found to be acting in an irresponsible manner will have their shooting day terminated, their rounds confiscated and they will be escorted off of the range, without a refund of any kind.
These are last years prices, but they shouldn't be too much different for this year. I will post up the current prices on belt fed rounds and loose rounds, as soon as I know them. Please donít comment on whether you could buy the rounds cheaper than anyone else or that you were/are in the military and you had enough of shooting. This is the manís living. If you have a Class III license, a couple of machine guns and 10,000 rounds at $.001 each, then lucky you.
