For the time being, I'm only here to evaluate the practicality of one project.

Background: There are machine gun shoots where ordinary people can shoot full autos, from 22 RF to 50 BMG.Think :gun:, but with a smiling shooter. Typically, there are a few really cool targets. I've seen junk cars set to drive in a circle 600 yards out with explosives in the trunk. Their end is spectacular. I haven't seen it yet, but some have a guy flying model airplanes. In Wyoming last year, they shot down 24 of them, taking anywhere from 3 to 20 passes to do so. However, most of the time the targets aren't very interesting. I'm trying to change that.

A safely buried bubble machine can be a lot of fun until the wind blows towards the firing line. The guns must be 1986 models or older. Many are WWII era. Getting other people's expensive irreplaceable machines wet will not be nice.

My laser question is here: http://laserpointerforums.com/f44/ever-blast-zubble-70687.html

If those bubbles can be popped, the laser will be treated like a gun, and I won't be allowed to use it unless the organizers are convinced it's safe. The laser would be swivel mounted with travel stops so that it can't point anywhere except downrange and below the horizon. The target zone would have to be free of reflectors. During a ceasefire, the range officers will need to see that the laser is safe. A blaze orange lens cap and a disconnected power cord with a lock would be my proposal.

Well, this seems pretty spiffy. If I had a powerful non-blue laser, I'd be willing to give it a shot, as a fellow Colorado laserist, but I haven't had the funds to get one quite yet.

Anyways, welcome to the forums, Hope you can find someone to help you out, and STAY OUT of the Buy Sell Trade area, or you'll start wanting everything you see. :D
