Woo hoo! Been stockin' up in anticipation ... John, good to see you're still with us! My wife has informed me that she will definitely come this year since I'm not allowed to have more fun than her ... Bob, hope you've been well, and yes, let's celebrate the EBR!

How much shooting is there? Not sure my budget will allow for too much fun considering current ammo prices and availability.

If ya come I can spare 9MM and 45acp ammo. I was thinkin' the same thing but I'm gonna throw caution to the wind and shoot my cotton-pickin' guns by golly.:)

Some folks shoot on Friday afternoon and some don't. Most of the shooting happens Saturday afternoon. That said, there is more to our get-together than just shooting. Make some new friends, sitting around the campfire, the tall tales , the great food, and the camaraderie is what the weekend is all about.

Thanks for the offer! I've got some, just not sure how much I would need to bring.

Very kind of you though. Hope to see you there.

Well, John, you said ...
Sig's rule and ponies drool!
SIGs? We got SIGs!
FourTeeFive, no one's ever complained over the past six years (it has been six, right, Bob? Or longer?) that Bob's been hosting this terrific event that we didn't have enough ammo to shoot ... We're all about sharing our sport ... and food ... and good campfire stories (right, John?) ...

March 17, 2013, 11:14 PM
It's a fun event. I've gone up just for the day before. Good group of folks.

FYI, I'm no longer on TFF.

Those of you interested get me email addresses. I have to set up a new group as Pops pointed out that Multiply isn't for us anymore. You will get an invite from BBBB for a microsoft skydrive group. Anyone from multiply send me your email too since this can't be accessed.

PM your way, Bob ...
John, didn't we do the AR vs. AK battle a couple years back? I b'lieve the ARs won ...
Would be nice to see the combat roll back, too, Wayne ...

There's no battle my friend. I'd take either one in these crazy times.;)

March 22, 2013, 11:13 PM
Sounds awesome! I've lived in WA all my life and never heard of this..I'll definitely be there.

March 23, 2013, 03:09 PM
What are the targets and distance ranges? Need to know what to bring.

March 24, 2013, 03:24 AM
We shoot anything from paper to potatoes, bowling pins to tannerite, range is solid out to 200 and then a metal disc out at just over 300. I sent a sign in to those who have given me emails so check your junk to see if it is there.

March 24, 2013, 07:04 AM

I'm going to try and make it up this weekend to check out things. Hope to see you all up in June.

May 15, 2013, 06:07 PM
Well, my hummingbird keeps asking me when this is and what we're bringing. I think she misses you guys. ;)

May 16, 2013, 01:50 PM
Just over a month out!:D Everyone who has wanted more information should have gotten an invite by now. We need to firm up the guest list and get organized on the food we are going to eat. So far:

Armed and Safe +2 minus 2 +1 minus 3 Who Really Knows
Old Dog +1
Paparo +1
DeanC +1
busy squirrel
Repo +1
Polish +2

Still definite, of course ... On a mission to find some new and interestin' stuff to bring ... Will we need some more .50 BMG rounds, Polish?

May 17, 2013, 03:53 PM
I know a couple guys bringing boxes so we will probably have enough, just maybe float them a couple bucks to offset the cost.

May 22, 2013, 09:49 PM
Missed the earlier question on my guests.

Ty is unknown until he can cement a replacement at work, but working hard to get free.
Cody, Tram and Charlene are confirmed (Ty's brother, dad and mom)


June 5, 2013, 01:52 PM
Food is posted on the group site. I think we are quickly approaching 30 attendees. Should be a great time.

June 18, 2013, 03:37 PM
I'm offline after tonight so if anyone has final questions let me know. Otherwise see you Friday or Saturday.

June 25, 2013, 10:31 PM
Thank you again Polish! We had a blast!

June 26, 2013, 03:08 PM
My pleasure as always! Here's a picture and a big shout out to all who help support what we do and have helped Washington stay more gun friendly than not! Hope to see more of you next year!
