This is a well-down little 13-minute documentary of shooting humongous guns in northwestern Arizona on the Big Sandy range near Wikieup. It is the largest machine gun shoot in the U.S., and it's all for fun. There are anti-aircraft artillery which shoot 1200-1300 rounds per minute - the shells literally fall on top of each other flying out. Model airplanes fly around as targets, and at night they put glowsticks on them. The founder of this annual event recently passed away, and his wish was to have his ashes blown up, so his ashes are put inside a big neon green paper mache dinosaur with dynamite and blown up. The video is so well put together I could not hit pause.
