Greetings em six zero

love the moniker. with a name like that are we gonna expect your posts in controlled burst, single shot or do you let the whole belt go at one long roar? :D

It's good to have friends to shoot with, neh?

Enjoy your stay.

Baba, how do you get controlled bursts from a revolver?:D

Welcome M60!
How did it come to be known as "the pig"?

Guess I was thinking of another M60, maybe that would be "M-60" em dash six zero.

If in fact I was wruoung, I hereby offer full and apologetic sounds. I never thunk of a smallish revolver. Thinking "Guns Up".

Anyway, M60 (uh, which are you, belt fed or holster kept?):D


February 8, 2003, 11:43 PM
And yes, I know why its called the "pig"and every time I go to a fun show and see one I say to myself, "Damn I cant belive I hummped that damn thing around!!" Although, Most of my shooting was done with a Delta model '60 from a "hawk".

U.S. Army. '88-'92 1st AD Most of the time.

..........we are still waiting for him to bring a 60 to the dump

February 9, 2003, 12:15 AM
Ah, there you are.

Great shoot today in the beautiful state of Oregon. Look forward to the next shootout.

I'm good for a rifle shoot every weekend, so do keep in touch.

You'll have to come down to the indoor range on Wednesdays with the boys as well.

PM me, and I'll give you directions to the place. We meet up at 7:45 pm and shoot til 9:30 or 10:00.

Chow M60.


February 9, 2003, 12:20 AM
Dude, looks like you didn't hit the snow on the way back. Good.

Perhaps we'll see you on Wednesday. Need to get the 550 busy before Wednesday.

February 9, 2003, 12:25 AM snow, lots of ice............but it was that closed gate 7 miles before Timothy Lake that really (really) slowed me down!! I went BACK by the dump about an hour later.

oh well

I missed the 1/2 pipe finals up at Mt Batchalor

oh well

A stunning view of the sunset over the Cascades though

off to chase natives downtown at the pub(s)

be well

February 9, 2003, 12:32 AM
Doh, you had to take the scenic route.

This one has to bed down, so he can go to work tomorrow. :(

It's good seeing ya here.:D

February 11, 2003, 07:36 PM
I'd like to shoot this weekend. Let's keep in touch and go. Looks like the weather is good Saturday. BTW, I really like those Targets stands, Lars. Oh, and the dump has been remodeled a bit. :)

I'll probably go tomorrow to JCGC.

February 11, 2003, 09:01 PM
You guys ( you know who you are) should go to that site and check out the thread I started on the "you know what"!

What a hijack!!

they don't know when to quit.

Welcome to the boards.

February 11, 2003, 09:27 PM
Tell me about it sometime. I'm really trying to resist the temptation to view it, especially since I don't go there anymore.

This board is much more civilized.

Based upon the past, it seems that threats against people's health, outright libel and slander, and outrageous lies are OK with the management over you know where. What a bunch of morons. Those clowns don't have the balls to show up at one of our shoots again. If one or more of them does, you'll see PURE ACTION from me. I can't stand snake-in-the-grass people like that. That's our turf, plain and simple, and I'm the Enforcer. :)

Anyway, you up for a shoot tomorrow evening, and this weekend?

I'm going to make it SKS day this time. Going to shoot the old M44 too.


February 11, 2003, 11:43 PM
Where At? I'm over here on the west side so I probably can't make it in the evenings if its on the East side. Weekends are a Absolute maybe!

February 12, 2003, 12:06 AM

One of the gang comes from the west side (Hillsboro) to my place on the northeast side in about 20-30 minutes - if the I5 Gods are willing. It's 8-12 minutes up Banfield/I205 from here.

The indoor range is in the pre-Clackamas area, right off I205. You could come the back way. Shouldn't be much of a hassle around 7:00 p.m. We usually meet up around 7:45. The cardlock locks the building down at 8:00 p.m. and we usually keep an eye out if we know someone is coming. You're allowed to shoot until 10:00 p.m., and we usually end up owning the place from 8-10. Most times, I'm good for about an hour of shooting, before it gets to be my bedtime. 5:45 comes early.

I think Saturday is going to be the best weather. Let's get some guys together and go to The Dump. I'm aching to get up to the hills again.

February 12, 2003, 12:08 AM
I witnessed the hi-jack carnage.....along with the lies, slander and the usual out of context refrences. I started to get slightly POed........... realized it was not worth it and deleted any and all contacts/links with the place.

M60- you should PM swhebo and link him over here to get away from that riff-raff

weekend sounds good, perhaps y'all can make it here out east

February 12, 2003, 12:16 AM
I'd like to get out East, but I have to do a little work at the office, again.

Bossman is a pain in the *** - you know, the logistically challenged one? Wow, the guy never ceases to amaze me. :(

I'll be good for the dump this weekend, but would really like to get over the mountain again to visit, longer than just a shoot. I'm talking BBQ baby. :) ... sleeping out on back deck in 28 deg weather again, etc., watching a war movie or something, then heading home in the a.m.

CA out.

March 2, 2003, 12:06 AM
Dude what ever happend to the shoot weekend you were going to setup in your neck of the woods?

March 2, 2003, 12:10 AM
Talked with Dude tonight on phone. We should drive on up there soonest. He'd be game for a good shoot, I imagine.

March 5, 2003, 05:14 PM
M-60 - Glad you migrated over.

March 6, 2003, 12:49 AM
Its good to be here
