(sponsored post) It’s not easy setting up a machine gun shoot at a normal gun range. The muzzle of a firearm equipped with a giggle switch tends to rise as you shoot. Rounds can fly over the berm, if you let them. Then there’s the target challenge. While it’s a hoot to shoot at old cars and other solid stuff, the danger of splash-back and shrapnel makes it a lousy idea, especially if you’re machine gunning at a relatively short distance. Shooting paper and other soft targets is certainly safer, but nowhere near as much fun.
Which is why VIP ticket holders at the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival’s Full Auto Friday will be shooting steel targets with Sinterfire lead-free frangible ammo (sold at our cost). As you can see from the video above, Sinterfire ammunition completely eliminates the splash-back issue, even on solid steel. To further ensure safety, every shooting position will have a manufacturer rep by the shooter, under the watchful eye of our Range Safety Officer.
In two days, you can experience the joys of ringing steel with a post-1984 modern machine gun or pistol loaded with Sinterfire lead-free frangible ammo at the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival. We’re running the new-for-2016 event Friday from 4 – 9pm at Best of the West Shooting Sports (just outside of Austin).

If you can’t make it to Full Auto Friday, Sinterfire will be selling their amazing rounds on the weekend. General Admission ticket holders [click here to buy] can ring steel with Sinterfire ammo through Wilson Combat’s handguns and rifles. You can also buy the rounds to take home. But first, come and shoot it!
