Conflicts with the Georgetown car and airshow. Now I am torn which to attend. The really noisy one or the really quiet one. Hmmmm. Times clash as well.

I guess the wife and I could show up at the Quiet one as Bonnie and Clyde if someone would let me borrow a BAR.
No - but I've got a coupla 1911's an' a Model '97 you can borrow.....I'll just show up to provide some color....

Nothing like the mighty flathead V8 though! All 83 hp. When I stomp on it it just jumps off the line (slowly).
I love the look of the old Nailheads - and almost pulled the trigger on a street rod w/one....but then I remembered the joy of adjusting valves, sobered up an' went with an engine w/hydraulic lifters....lol

I went 2 years ago which I believe was the first time they hosted it. Stood in line for 45 minutes to shoot a free mag out of a Scorpion. There weren’t really any vendors there but I heard last year was better organized. I didn’t stay for the machine gun part so can’t comment on how that was run.

I'm a bit late to the thread...but... My wife and I went to the event in 2019. It was not overly crowded and the lines to shoot moved at a reasonable pace. If my memory is correct we shot 4 or 5 times within a span of an hour. I couple vendors were there but not many. I was at Capitol Armory right before the 2020 event and the guy I talked to said it was going to be bigger and better than 2019. I had already booked a ride on the B-17 "Ye Olde Pub" @ the Georgetown Air/Car show the same weekend so I was unable to attend (sad I know :laughing:) .
