  1. If I remember right, the geography of the land prevents it from being a suitable area to aim at closer targets. Shooters in the ghetto are left to shoot at targets farther away on a hill. That being said, as a visitor last year, the ghetto is one amazing place if you have a guy with the right hardware taking out targets in the distance. Every couple of shots you’d see an explosion in the far distance, and every miss was visible to the naked eye with a small puff of sand. I don’t know what distance it was, but it was far enough. I loved it.

  2. It’s called a ghetto because it is separate from the other shooters. The muzzle blast from the .50’s causes those shooters to be shunned by others.

  3. Don’t blame you on that. Shooting a 50 isn’t all that bad when you’re behind the stock, but man being beside the break id a downright unpleasant place to be!

  4. We were shooting a 50 in a gravel pit once, and the blast from the muzzle break was kicking up gravel– back and to the sides. You experience it once, from the side, and you don’t stand there again. A 7 mm magnum or 300 magnum with a muzzle break, like Joe’s, isn’t much more comfortable for someone off to one side, unless you consider being whacked up side the head with a 2 x 4 as “comfortable”. As for whether or not to install a break; I’m not sure which is worse– recoil that pulls off your glasses and dislocates your earmuffs, or the muzzle blast. I was out with a guy yesterday who lost a contact lens from firing his 7 mm Mag. It’s all part of the fun of course ; )

    If you’re on the fence about going, just do it. After it’s over you’ll be saying to yourself; “When can we do this again?” and; “Why is there only one Boomershoot per year?”
