DFW Group Shoot 06.27.04


June 12, 2004, 09:59 AM
It's that time again. Our montly shoot has been planned for the last Sunday in June. The venue is Winchester Shooting Gallery, the site of our first shoot.

During the shoot, we're having a holster show and swap. Everyone has "that box" of holsters that just didn't work out for them. Bring that, and we'll trade around. Also, bring your favorites and show them off. It's an opportunity to see what works for people, and to see what you can get for that holster that didn't work for you. One man's trash and all...

There is a poll posted on our Yahoo group to determine the starting time. Please vote:

Sorry, I have to head to Georgia to pick up a Marriage license and finish planning a wedding. Next time perhaps. ;)

June 12, 2004, 04:52 PM
Good luck with that... :D

June 13, 2004, 09:05 PM
I'll be there :D

June 13, 2004, 10:54 PM
I ought to be there, but I have some AM obligations. If it is too early, I will have to forego the smell of burnt powder.

I will bring holsters: good, bad, & fugly.

June 14, 2004, 11:28 AM
I am going to make this one come hell or high water.

June 14, 2004, 09:36 PM
Shooting on Sunday.....you bunch of pagans. GO TO CHURCH....and shoot on Saturday:D

June 14, 2004, 11:47 PM
I'm up for a saturday also :D but not working saturday or sunday is always nice :neener:

June 15, 2004, 08:29 PM
Shooting on Sunday.....you bunch of pagans. GO TO CHURCH....and shoot on Saturday Don got this whole thing started....It kinda stinks he keeps getting left out we really should do some on Saturdays.

June 15, 2004, 08:43 PM
We took a poll and decided that 2 per month would be good. One Saturday and one Sunday. Steve took point on this particular shoot, and he only shoots on Sundays. Anyone is welcome (and encouraged) to step forward and plan a Saturday shoot, but so far no one has.

I plan on going to every shoot that is possible, both Saturdays and Sundays. My suggestion is that someone who has an interest in shooting on Saturdays step forward and set up a shoot. I, for one, will be there.

After all, I look forward to any chance to laugh at Alduro's shooting. ;) :D :evil:

June 15, 2004, 08:46 PM
Anyone up for some range time this saturday? My plans for this weekend got cancelled because of the storms last week. I know Father's day is Sunday and some of you dads might have plans but I figured I'd ask :D

June 15, 2004, 08:49 PM
I'll have to wait until later this week to commit, but I'll try. I have tenative plans on Saturday, but they might fall through. I also had planned on going to the gun show this weekend. I need to buy some cases of ammo and a few mags for my new (to me) 22/45.

June 15, 2004, 08:56 PM
hmm where is there a gun show? I always enjoy a good laugh at most of the prices lol. I wouldn't mind picking up a case of this oh so cheap 9mm too :evil:

June 15, 2004, 08:59 PM
It's the Big Town show in Mesquite. I'm in the market for a gen3 G17, myself.

June 15, 2004, 09:36 PM
I wouldn't mind going with ya'll to the gun show.

tiberius.........you da' man. Somebody here feels my pain. Okay, I'm setting up a shoot soon Techbrute.

Calendar tools are wonderful things

June 16, 2004, 05:20 PM
Fort Worth looks good to me.

June 16, 2004, 05:43 PM
I haven't heard good things about the FW shows, but I can't speak from experience. I probably ought to get over there and check it out for myself.

June 16, 2004, 05:45 PM
They're okay......lots and lots of cops around there though. I know what you think about that.:D

June 16, 2004, 05:56 PM
Forget it then. :neener:

Hey guys...with all fairness to the Sunday shoots. We all agreed that we would be best served with two monthly shoots. I took the reigns and planned the Sunday shoot since I can't make it on Saturdays. I was hoping somebody else would handle getting the Saturday shoot planned. I will continue to help plan the Sunday shoot and will make it a point for it to be the last Sunday of the month. This way, somebody else can plan the Saturday and make it something like the first or second Saturday of the month. This way it breaks it up and hopefully everyone can make it as much as possible and hopefully most people can make it to both shoots. I know Alduro and Thumbtack have a hard time with Sunday, so hopefully they can take charge and get Saturday's up and running. For the die hard guys like Techbrute...see ya at the range!

Thumbtack, wanna carpool to the Sunday shoot this weekend...neighbor? If so, PM or email me...you know where to find me.

June 21, 2004, 12:58 PM
If you visit our Yahoo Groups Page, click on Database...from there, you will see that I have added the Gun Show dates that JFRUSER has offered to the group.

Take a look!

June 21, 2004, 01:21 PM
One might consider a calendar as helpful for tracking dates... :neener: I'll enter them later today.

June 21, 2004, 02:36 PM
Well, I agree with you techbrute!

I just listed them in a quick fashion....that way people can look into the future at all of them without any work


Why didnt I think of that? :banghead:

June 21, 2004, 07:55 PM
I'm going to close the time poll on the Yahoo group on Wednesday so we can nail it down in time to make plans. Everyone get their vote in.

June 22, 2004, 05:28 AM
I'll be there for sure...

June 23, 2004, 10:47 AM
10AM is the official start time.

June 23, 2004, 10:09 PM
Alduro, you brining the donuts? :D

June 24, 2004, 10:20 AM
Ok, so the shoot starts at 10. Is there any interest in going to lunch afterwards, like around 1?

June 24, 2004, 10:45 AM
I wish I could come.

June 24, 2004, 11:16 AM
I'm moving to Dallas in August, I'll have to come out to one of these shoots.

Where are the good places to shoot in DFW? I'll be living on the north side of Dallas.

June 24, 2004, 01:40 PM
Lunch...there's a thought. I just may count myself in on that.

June 24, 2004, 03:40 PM
"Alduro, you brining the donuts?"

Thats food of the gods....don't forget it.

June 24, 2004, 07:31 PM
Can we show up and still be 'square'?

See ya Sunday.

June 24, 2004, 08:06 PM
I'd be there if we met every week - Cmon Saturdayers, pick a date and place.

I don't vote on date because I'll come regardless.

And I've been flirting with a new pimp gun - won't have it by this weekend, but might before long - it's the pimpiest dang thing you have EVER seen!

June 24, 2004, 08:13 PM
I'm up for lunch afterwards, I think I heard Alduro say he's buying for everyone :evil:

June 24, 2004, 10:35 PM
You got that right RRTX.....Just show up at the Bennigans in Bedford off Airport Freeway at 1:00PM. If I'm late, just wait for me. I'll show. Go ahead and order all the drinks you want....I'll be there just in time to pay for them.:evil:

June 24, 2004, 10:58 PM
Can we show up and still be 'square'?
Normally I'd say no, but we'll make an exception. :D

I plan on doing a bunch of .22 shooting this time around. I've got a new (to me) 22/45 to try out, as well as a new gizmo to load the mags in a fraction of the time. We'll see how it works.

June 25, 2004, 07:35 AM
Patent...is it chrome?

Does it have "da switch"

June 25, 2004, 08:01 AM
Patent...is it chrome?

In the Master Handbook of Pimpitude, this piece is 300 pages past chrome!

But I don't have it yet, so maybe I won't get to show it off...

June 25, 2004, 09:58 AM
Dude, if you got one of those gold-plated Desert Eagles I'm going to kick your butt.

...unless it has da switch...

June 25, 2004, 10:08 AM
I predict:

A triple Chrome plated with Gold accents Desert Eagle .50


"da switch"

I need to run some rounds through the new Buckmark I just got, so it looks like I'll be there. I'm prone to travelling heavy, so I'll probably bring my BHP and maybe the Blackhawk, just for shock value.

Anyone planning to bring a rifle, just in case? Smite is getting lonely to be fired.


June 26, 2004, 05:03 AM
Looks like I won't be the only plinker there. :D

I'm considering bringing my LTR so I can sight it in a little.

June 26, 2004, 08:01 AM
Yeah...I will be bringing my .22 for kicks. It hasnt seen daylight in quite some time.

June 27, 2004, 04:18 PM
Sorry, didn't make it. Somthing came up. I need to get a .22. Ammo cost is killing me.

June 27, 2004, 04:25 PM
Plus, you might actually be able to hit something with a .22... or not. :D

Seriously, we heard about your little problem in the bathroom (it sounds funny when you say it like that.) Nothing like a group of High-Roaders coming to the rescue of our local lovable jack-booted thug. We kicked it around a little at the shoot, and you just name the time and place and we'll be there to pitch in some labor. I'm sure we can contribute some tools, too. I, of course, would be glad to supervise.

June 27, 2004, 05:16 PM
Total Blast today...again! Alduro, I told Techbrute about your second story flooring problem. We agree to help if you need it, but you have to promise not to treat us like bad sheeple if we come over.

Hope all is well.

June 27, 2004, 05:23 PM
By the way, I will get things set up for the July Sunday shoot for the last Sunday of the month. I think somebody else will get the July Saturday shoot planned for the second Saturday of the month.

Hopefully with 2 shoots, we can get and sustain more people at the shoots.

I appreciate the offered help guys....They finally have everything in my house fixed except for:

1.) 2nd floor bathroom air duct leaking water. Moisture barrier is torn and its starting to get into the sheet rock. UGLY!!! I need to get to it before MOLD begins.:uhoh:

2.) Painting....WILL THE MADNESS NEVER END.....my wife picked the colors.:what:

3.) Get my toilet on the 2nd floor Re-installed. You guessed it, the floor guys took it off, fixed the floor, layed the tile and left it off. I have to run downstairs every time I have to pee....does wonders for my weight problem.:D

4.) Re-insulate the attic, I believe this will have to wait until fall.:fire: due to heat

5.) Wood floors installed, this will be on Tuesday.

6.) Backyard....it's a jungle not fit for my dog to ???? in....so he ????s on the porch.


7.) Hotwater heater adjusted......not hard, just time consuming....Its in a crawl space.

8.) I have to cut doors to fit on 2nd floor, the jackass who owned the house before me, used after market doors, that dont fit, so they wont shut. YEAH!!!:scrutiny:
