Ballistics by the inch

Some subgun fun.

Some of the BBTI crew got together this past weekend, mostly for a bit of fun shooting (though we did get to try out some new guns none of us had ever shot before). And I thought I’d share a little bit of the fun here this week with a couple of blog posts.

Let’s start with what we actually finished the day doing on Saturday: two submachine guns.

We were shooting at a a mobile shooting range (which I have written about previously) in Bettendorf, Iowa. It’s a great little range, but forgive the quality of the lighting and noise from the air filtration system in the following two videos:

First, a simple 1960s-era Walther MPL:

And then a *slightly* newer H&K MP5 with a red-dot sight:

Both in 9mm, of course. Here’s a bad pic of them:

And here’s a somewhat better article with some additional pictures and video about the last time I gave them a go: Full Auto.

Oh, and here’s my target after shooting the MP5:

Yup, fun stuff. Please forgive the hoodie — it was COLD in that range!

More later.
