    A Wombat?

    Well you have door #1
    Or door #2

    Door #2 is more a more accurate portrait, but door #1 is closer to the spirit perhaps...

    Wait you forgot door # 3 :) This is a spy photo of Combat-Wombat just before he opened up a can of whoopie. :D


    I'll try and make the shoot. I maybe going to Az for a seminar that weekend, but if I dont and the weather is good, I'll make the trek.

    Well, "wombat" really isn't some special symbol to me or something like that, as many people think. I just came up with it out of the blue, and it seemed cool.

    Would you like for me to bring out the 10/22 "sniper"rifle :)
  7. Combat-wombat

    Combat-wombat New Member

    Yeah, 45R, that would be great. I've been wanting to shoot an upgraded one, so I can evaluate whether it would be worth it to upgrade ours, too.

    And, if you could...
    Bring those sweet Ti Chopsticks!

    We'll be bringing:
    Stock 10/22
    Browning Buckmark
    S&W Model 19
    (It's all we have :( )

    If I can make it out I'll bring out the 10/22. Regardless the upgrades are worth it, esp the trigger work. A VQ target hammer makes a huge difference in the trigger pull. All that for just 40 bucks. Are you shooting irons or scoped?

    I'll bring out the chopsticks also :) I gotta use something to eat my food.

    I'm there. The 10-day for my new (to me) Colt is up Saturday, so I'll bring a bunch of ammo for people to try it out. :)

    Hey Wombat- I may be able to make this one. If so, I'll have my Mini-14 (stainless w/ Hogue stock), Colt .38, Win 12, 10/22 (these 10/22s are pretty ubiquous, aren't they?), and k-31.

    unforturnely I will be memorial park watching little kiddie running around looking for plastic eggs. I anyway want my collection of cans and plastic containters let me know

    More good news; I just received my two cases of Fed M193 .223- Great stuff, Lake City brass of recent vintage and all NATO spec. I highly recommend Wholesale Hunter.com; $3.19 a box of 20 (I just missed the $2.99 sale) and delivered fast.

    So that puts me at around 3k rounds of .223... better bring another AR to the shoot.

    I will be going to Az for a seminar that weekend so I wont be able to make it.

    45R- Well I guess that means we'll just have to have ANOTHER range day later in the season when you can make it.

    What a shame, making us meet up again to shoot guns in the great outdoors like that. You'll probably make us cook and eat some barbecue as well. ;)
