    Default Where to shoot 50 BMG?

    My friend recently splurged and got himself an m82a1. Problem is, there's not too many places available to the public that allow you to shoot it...anyone know a place in SEPA with 400 yards or so where we could shoot it?

    Its funny how the now where to shoot it thought always comes up after the .50 cal purchase.

    My cousin has one and hes down in Bucks. I will shoot him a text and see if he shoots it anywhere good locally. I know hes taken it to Texas and a few other places for training courses.

    Mine has been in storage for ten years, not worth shooting at 100yrds.
    Hard to find a place that lets you shoot anything but ball ammo, (the most expensive).

    Good luck. If you find one that lets you shoot .50 BMG, report it back here. I was looking at SHTF .50 BMG upper several years back, but there's no place locally to shoot it. New Holland has a 700 yd range, but .50 cal is not permitted. Same for Atglen's 500 meter range.
    A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kickboxing.

    Yeah I just recently became a member at new Holland, which is awesome, but was a little bummed that 50 bmg is restricted. Might have my buddy try for university if they allow it.

    Glad it was a friend and not me that bought it! Coincidentally, hes also the friend with the pool. Good guy to know.
