I hadn’t planned on shooting a submachine gun during the Media Day event held prior to the SHOT Show. Will, Tony and I were there to gather info on the latest new hunting products and guns. But, when I heard the machine gun fire in the distance, I just couldn’t resist. I followed the sound to the Kriss booth where I had the opportunity to give it a try myself. I’d never shot a machine gun before, as is evident by the occasional girly shrieks that escaped my mouth, but I had a blast. I was a little shocked by the amount of recoil, but the gun was no doubt easy to shoot and a lot of fun.
