Big Sandy Machine Gun Shoot
Largest Machine Gun Shoot in the U.S.
A twice a year, three day weekend of friends, weapons, targets and gear in Arizona’s high, western desert. With a quarter mile long firing range, populated by hundreds of shooters, The Big Sandy is the largest machine-gun shoot in the United States. Held in Northwestern Arizona, approximately 10 miles northeast of the town Wikieup. Some targets fly the length of the range at high speeds, some explode.
Spectator Basic Info
Students will enjoy a Spectators Pass to the Big Sandy Machine Gun Shoot. A spectator is one that does not own, or chose to bring, a machine gun- yet is interested in coming to see the event or in shooting various machine guns rented from MG shooters.
Their machine gun shooters are not only collectors, but are also into the history. You will see things from the very old (Gatling gun) to the very newest (minigun). They can tell you not only the guns capacities, but in which wars and battles they were used. Fortunately for us, most enjoy talking about them.
There is a Daily Schedule List and the time of the subgun matches that you are encouraged to watch and a schedule letting you know when the line will be hot. The announcement of special events, such as the firing of a cannon, will be announced in plenty of time for you to make your way to where it will be taking place. Unfortunately, the announcements cannot be heard in the camping and parking area. (Class will take these events into consideration, and we will break to enjoy the main events.)
Full Auto Rental
The SPECTATOR entrance fee (included) plus the price of the rental/ammo is all you need to rock and roll.
MG Shooter’s LLC will be the only unit renting weapons, in the rental position of the line.
No user supplied ammo is permitted. All ammo will be provided by MG Shooter’s LLC.
