    YEAH!!!...shottys rule!!!

    I know Techbrute is dying to get his $10,000.00 shotgun into the light of day and I have a Remi 870 Police that hasn't been fired yet. I would love to do both skeet shooting and some tactical shotty stuff. Maybe there is a rifle/shotgun friendly range I can find for next month.

    That would be great. I would love to learn some tactical stuff also. Maybe I will keep my Pistol Grip Defender and put a short stock on it and use it for that purpose. That sounds like more fun than trading or selling it!

    A round of sporting clays is always fun.....kind of like golf with guns :) Not very tactical, and I'm not very good.....but it IS very fun.

    I'd love to do a shotty day - I've got an 870 which I can't hit the ground with, and a long-barrelled 10 gauge double. I've shot skeet before and liked it, but would love to get introduced to clays.

    Also I'd love it if somebody can tell me what the $%$*^$%^ I'm doing wrong with the 870!

    And if we've got multiple 12 gauge 870s out together, we could always swap barrels around - see how your defender works for trap with a 28" full!

    I'm in for a rifle day - most of mine are in dire need of getting sighted in.

    I'll bring the .416 Rigby again. There's a Sendero in 7MM RUM that wants to come along too.

    It was great meeting everybody. Sorry about getting turned around on the way to the bar. FWIW, I toasted everyone several times at the Benegin's I wound up at (Euless, I think).

    I'd be glad to pitch in on a website - sounds like a great idea.

    Cheers.

    Hey Guys,

    You can count me in for what little help I may be able to provide regarding the web site idea.
    Ditto on the family/time commitment issues.
    Need to loop someone in w/ the land :D

    alduro, you thoughts on cross-training amongst us is a very good idea.
    I know, I for one could use as much input as possible.
    Always believe the only way to get better at something is to participate w/ others that are better than you.

    I'm game for clays sometime.
    Have access to an 870 to use. Used to go out to Alpine in high-school to shoot trap; been awhile though :rolleyes:

    Billmanweh,

    I shot at the range in Carrollton once when I first moved to Texas. Mostly nice folks, but somewhat limited in what you can shoot. You can shoot any rifle you want, as long as it's .22. I think they have IPSC or IDPA matches there along with some others. Since I like to get around to other ranges and such, I am hesitant to pay good money to "join" a range/club. Maybe that will be the nice thing about our group. We can basically be transient shooters with no home gun club and feel free to roam around.

    As far as the web page goes, I have another idea "IF" we do this...

    We can put a link page up. It will have links to the web pages of the various ranges we shoot at IF they give us a slight group discount on the range fee's. Maybe it will only save a few bucks, but I bet it will pay for the cost of the webpage hosting etc...

    Hawk, thanks for the .416 shot, it was great! My bruise is "nice"

    Announcer: "in this corner weighing in at 150 lbs. Techbrute!"

    :D


    Techbrute...J/K

    anyways, the shooting gallery where we were at said we can get a group discount of 10.00 a head next time by buying a 120.00 10 visit card and everybody get's a punch. OR we can join the range and go anytime for no charge. I think that is a hair over 300.00 bucks though. But for exclusive use of a pistol range and lounge in the adjacent building it might be worth a shot ESPECIALLY IF they allow us to draw from the holster and use shotties on that range....which they allow police to do. I am willing to bet that if the 12 of us got our cumlative $350.00 and waved a hair over $4,000.00 a year at the owner, he would swoon and let us do it.

    I know it's a drive but think of it. Air conditioned, good ventalation, private lounge, go any time you want, shoot defensive shotties....could be a thought....of course there might be a better deal out there too. I would be willing to drive a little extra to be able to switch off from shotgun to pistol in one course...of course they let me do that anyway:D

    As far as clays go, I'm in on that. It's been a while since I've done it, and I'm not any good, but I sure enjoy it!

    Wife is back from San Diego, catch y'all tomorrow...

    If you ask nice, I might let you try the 458 WITH the recoil pad on it -
    but real tough guys won't need it!

    Me, I use two...

    I have had a run at a .458 a few years ago with the same result, lol. I don't mind the pain if all the "cool people" are doing it, lol.

    Alduro,

    You know where I work. If you want to, drop those pics off on your way to work tomorrow and I will scan them and email em to you. I won't be in till around 10:00-11:00, but you can leave them with my receptionist if you want.

    The .416 didn't bother me so much, the derringer with the .44mags in them was the crazy gun. There was a BIG difference between the .44spl and the .44 mag!

    Steve, when we do rifles next month, I'll show you how to shoot the big stuff without giving yourself hickeys. :D At least you have something to remember the $6 per shot rifle by.

    Techbrute:

    Sometimes you just don't learn...When I shot the .458, I was told (after the first round) to keep the butt of the gun pressed very firmly againt my shoulder...thats what I "think" I failed to remember when I shot the .416 this time.

    Oh well...

    But please, any tips are great. I think thats whats going to make our group great, learning from each others experiences.

    Hickeys my eye-more like a vampire bite:what:

    What a great time-I am most interested in a rifle shoot. Will bring:

    10/22 Ruger
    Rem 700 vs 308
    Rem 700 270 Win
    Winchester 94 30/30

    Guess I have to start saving those wrappers for the AR's and M1A's:evil:
    Certainly need a closet full of those evil black almostassault rifles:neener:

    Damn I missed a lot this evening with my internet not working lol. I'm willing to chip in for a website later on, and I agree with everything everyone else has mentioned :D That was easy enough...... By the way, my hand is still sore from that derringer lol, maybe after the rifles this next time I'll have to call in sick to work because I won't be able to use my shoulder. I'm up for some shooting pretty much anytime, even if it isn't one of the formal get togethers. Give me a day or two notice and I should be game. One other thing, I saw someone mention not being able to get away because they are not single, was there anyone there that was actually single lol. At least of all the guys that came to bennigans, we all appeared to be married or engaged

    Yeah, one single guy in attendance. We have to work for a living so you married guys can run off to the bar and discuss your plight:D

    If you shoot where it IS, you hit where it WAS. :D

    Sorry I missed the good times. It looks like a bunch of 16U baseballers will keep me pretty occupied for the next few months, but maybe I'll catch a day "off" to meet some of you guys one of these days.

    patentnonsense....I am not much of a skeet shooter at all....but if you want a tip or two doing defensive shotgun...I might be your man. To be honest, I forgot most of the shotgun training because practice HURTS.:D

    Steve, I will try to remember to drop those pics off tomorrow.

    BTW guys...I bought my first REAL rifle today......a Saiga 7.62*39. Not a .308....I'm gonna try and VEPR the thing out....I love a challenge.


    Oh yeah....hey Steve...LOVE THE THIRD NIPPLE!!!

    Shotty's

    Ok, here is what I have got:

    My basic Mossberg 500 dressed in black, 28" barrell

    My Winchester Defender, dressed in black, 18" barrell, pistol grip. I think I am going to remove the pistol grip and get a pistol grip/regular butt stock and add some other goodies to make it my tactical toy. Alduro, I will be looking to you for some tactical shotty training...you in? Also, I will be at work till 8:00 tomorrow, so if not on your way to work, stop on your way home.
