    Ok, I'm going to try to come out there for this. It turns out I live a block from jfruser and I've offered to take a couple of toys over for his little impromptu class Sunday morning. I'm going to tempt fate and nerve damage and bring my M44, the Rotowhackulous (my STG58) and maybe my ancient Walther Sportmodell V to show you pups what old age and treachery can accomplish.

    See y'all there. First round of prednisone and vicodin are on me.

    Bring your own Tiger Balm.


    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    Oh, nice CETME, Nik.

    I've never fired a Savage 99 lever action in any caliber, but have been itching to. I'd be more than willing to trade off some time with any of my boomsticks in return.

    I don't suppose that anyone has a Marlin or Winchester lever action in 357/38?

    No, but I am bringing my Winchester Trapper in .44RM. Same gun - more bullet. Its the 100 year anniversary model (1894-1994) with the “John Wayne†big loop lever and I just put a Williams peep sight on that needs to be sighted in. Hopefully the front won't be too low, but I won’t know until I try it. You will certainly be welcome to give it a try.

    Well, I'm curious to get my hands on an STG FAL, and I'll be bringing some .308 hunting rounds. I'll also be bring a tasteful selection of bolt-actions, with a little ammo for each.

    Does anybody have a boresighter? I've got a varminter which I think I may have swapped a scope onto before I parked it.

    I'm happy to share some ammo for my rifles - no need to go purchase - but if anybody has odd factory rounds of 22-250, 300win, 375HH or 458 you'd like to shoot up, bring them along!

    I'm also going to be active on the pistol range.

    And did we ever decide on venue for afterwards? I propose Gingerman for geographical convenience (and wonderful beer), but it doesn't have a full bar -

    Looking forward,

    Hey guys, I have a buddy in Iraq who needs some help. He lost a flashlight (a stinger) during a bunker raid recently. I have been able to replace the flashlight but he and his fellow squad members are having a shortage of 3volt lithium batteries. They are the photo battery size CR123A. If anyone is able to, please help donate some batteries for these guys. They are available pretty much everywhere but tend to be expensive. I have found a place called GST Uniform in Grand Prarie that has them for $3.00 each. Anyone williing to provide some email me at [email protected]

    I thought it might be nice to help some of our troops.

    there's also a guy on candlepowerforums.com that sells them for $1 apiece (I think he still does, I might need to look). but if anyone else is in, I'll chip in for a dozen.

    Unfortunately, I won't be making it this Sunday-got to meet with a nice lady in Colorado City about a new deer lease. Tried to put it off but it looks like some competition is trying to move in on me. Nice place tho-$500 a year and BIG deer, Turkey, and quail too. Deer stands already set up and the feeders are in place. Hope you guys have a great shoot!

    Ok, whoever's familiar with Gibson's, is the firing line covered, or will we be hip deep in mud?

    All stations at Gibson's, rifle and pistol are covered. However, down range tends to get very muddy after a good rain so boots are recommended. If it rains hard tonight or Saturday, they might close the 200 yard lane(s).

    Heads up for newcomers, you will have to buy a one year membership for about $10 plus your range fee of another $8-10.

    Billmanweh, an SKS is 7.62 x 39. Origin is usually Russian, Chinese or Yugoslavian. Ammo runs about $2 for a box of 20. I'll bring mine, you are welcome to shoot a few rounds.

    What time is everyone getting there?
