    It's time to start planning the October range day. The Bill Goodman's Gun Show is at the fairgrounds the second weekend of the month, so I was thinking this would be a good weekend for the shoot. If we do it Sunday afternoon, we'll have Saturday and then Sunday morning to hit the show and stock up on ammo and / or new toys.

    So, how does 1 pm (1300 hours) on Sunday, the 14th of October, at the Cheatham range sound to ya'll?


    P.S. I heard there is a Rabid Jack 'o Lantern / Pumpkin revolt planned to take place out there that day, and there needs to be someone there to quell this evil rebellion.:D (Just thought I'd drop a hint as to what I might be bringing for a target.)

    Possibility I may be out of town that weekend.

    If not, I'll be there.

    I might be able to make it out there, if someone can provide directions.

    Go West young man, go west. :D

    I am sure somebody can give you the rundown.

    I will let you guys know as we get closer to the date. If it makes any difference I would prefer a Saturday range event.


    If you do happen to come up this way would you mind bringing the P232 along. I would like to shoot it and I think Sheslinger would also.

    Actually the Goodman's show is the 4th-5th.

    I'm free for any weekend except the 25th.

    My schedule is so out there these days I make no promises other than "Pick a day and I'll try to be there."

    I know I will be out of town the weekend of the 25th.

    Well I was hopeing not this coming weekend....Ive got a "friend" coming down and im going to show her a good time. Luckly that involves going to the gunshow then up to the range. so if anyone is up there either after the show or sunday ill likely be up there. but i wasnt wanting a huge crowd so i could teach her a little. shes never shot before but super enthused.

    I know Darrin is wide open :D. But crap just remembered...have a wedding like the 18th i think....not sure. Dont let me be the hold up tho. This coming weekend isnt great for me but i could manage, a little embarrased with my friend ;) but ya know... Think the 18th i cant, no one can do the 25th. .... i dont have a problem sitting one out. unless the wedding is before like on a saturday and shoot is on a sunday ill be golden :D

    Won't mind one bit. It's my summer carry gun anyway, so it'd be hard not to bring it. But be warned...it's a sweet little gun, and you'll end up wanting one.

    Unfortunately, I may be going to a fraternity regionals conference in AZ. Is there plans for a November shoot, or will everyone be staying indoors b/c of the cold?

    You are absolutely right, the 14th IS a Tuesday. I meant to type the 12th, but after a long morning at work, my mind sometimes doesn't work as well as I'd like it to.

    I was hoping to do it prior to the 17th (Friday), as Abominable will be leaving for school that weekend, and after that he'll be heading back to Iraq. I figured that if we could accomodate his schedule a bit, he'd be able to have a good bit of fun before he heads back overseas.

    I understand not everyone can make each weekend though, so we'll work something out. If all else fails, we can have two or three get-togethers this month. Ain't like there's a law 'ginst that. :D

    12th works for me, I'll be back from Knob Creek machinegun shoot. I'm going up Fri afternoon or evening and coming back to Nash Sat afternoon. don't think the wife & kids are gonna make this one because of a bunch of prior commitments. Anybody need a ride?

    It is now hunting season. Darrin and I found that out today after driving all the way up there. So the range is open 10am-2pm ONLY. So we will have to get up there early to get some decent shooting time. So we may need to start thinking of other places like Owl Hollow again, or maybe the new place out at the lake, or maybe ASP.... During hunting season the range is only open 4 hours to keep from scaring all the animals off I guess.

    Guess its good we were GOING to go today....oh well we went down to ASP instead

    There's another range that I use, for your consideration.

    Pros: 5-stand sporting clays.
    Four separate, parallel ranges.
    1.Rifle range with 100 & 200
    yard berms.
    2.Rimfire silhouette range.
    3.25-yard handgun range
    4.Rifle range with 50 & 100 yard berms.
    Reasonable fee ($5.00).
    Friendly owner.
    On-site restroom.

    Cons: It's in Warren County, 60+ miles from Nashville.
    Rapid fire is discouraged.
    There are postings barring "military rifles" on one range, but I've shot or seen ARs, AKs, M1s, and M1As out there so it may not be an issue.

    Viola Valley Shooting Range, Viola, TN.

    I'm cool with making it at 10, if that's cool with others. A 60 mile drive is a bit far for me, unless we car pool or something. I intend to do some large caliber rifle shooting as always, and ASP doesn't allow it, so that's contrary to my plans.

    not saying this time but other times we might want to consider a different range. i wouldnt mind trying that place atleast once. i know rod would want to try his 7mm mag at 200 yards for the first time. but as it is we will be there at 10sharp id say. If we decided to go to viola id say we make a FULL day out of it type thing. Scout out places to eat/picnic if warm enough. Car pool with everyone that has vans/suv's and just plan to leave at the butt crack of dawn and get back as late as we want.

    but hope to see as many as can make it sunday
