    On May 23rd, there will be two Highroader events in the DFW area.

    From 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM, there will be a handgun class taught by TJ Pillings from Tiger Valley. The cost is $35. If you are interested in attending, please contact me via email or PM.

    At 1:00 PM, we'll have our monthly shoot at DFW Gun Range. DFW allows shotguns, so bring your pistols and social guns, too.

    I think I can speak for most when I say that the events we've had have been a real success. There have been new friends made, guns shared, and a good time had by all. We are looking forward to seeing some more new faces at the next shoot.

    This is by no means an exclusive club. Please bring friends, family, co-workers, etc., to show them the positive aspects of gun ownership.

    Yes, the past two shoot's have been great. I have met some great people and tried on a few guns myself. I expect the May shoot to be the same. Come one, come all! :D

    Hopefully alduro can take a break from saving the world and join us too! :evil:

    Hey Techbrute,

    Sorry I missed the rifle shoot yesterday.

    Should already have me confirmed for Tiger Valley.

    Noticed a couple of different options regarding payment of the $35.00.
    Do we want to bank roll it in advance as GeeGee 'volunteered' or pay the day of?
    Personally, have no preference either way.

    Do we know what the training focus will consist of?
    Ammo requirement?
    Holster, mag carrier, etc?

    You missed a heck of a day. It was gorgeous weather and the targets were practically jumping in front of the bullets... :D

    Ok, there's been some back and forth on this, but we've decided to have GeeGee bankroll the event. Please contact him ASAP for the address to send the payment. We'd like to have all the payments in by Monday, 05.03.04.

    Handguns in defense scenarios.

    I think 250 rounds would be a minimum. Remember, this is going to be 2 hours of intensive training. Last Sunday I burned 200 rounds of .45ACP and 50 rounds of .40S&W in 40 minutes, so I think any less than 250 rounds would not let you take advantage of the entire training.

    Definately need a holster and a mag carrier. Here's what I'm bringing, use your best judgement:

    • [*]Pistol
      [*]Holster
      [*]9 Mags
      [*]Mag carriers for 3 mags
      [*]Ammo
      [*]Water

    I'm sorry I didn't get to socialize much with y'all. I had invited two folks comlpetely new to firearms and the pre-range training & socialization ran over a bit. I didn't want them to feel pressured and the guy's wife hit it off with my wife. Also, I wanted to be sure I kept an eye on them.

    Anyway, they did fine: all the holes were in the targets, not themselves or any bystanders and they were shooting minute-of-squirrel by the time we left. Common sense on their part made it easier on me.

    I was able to zero the cheesy scout scope on my M48 Mauser at 50 yards with the Turkish milsurp ammo. I, too, had a bruise when all was said & done. Those Turks load thier 8x57 HOT. A slip-on recoil pad is recommended, if not pretty.

    Sylvilagus Aquaticus made it to my briefing and even brought Krispy Creme doghnuts to complement his STG58 and M44 M-N. Mmmm, Krispy Creme.

    I may have company coming down 23MAY. Can't tell, really, until they arrive. Retired people are like that.

    I, also would be open to some Saturday shoots, just to mix it up a bit. Or, maybe we can schedule an alternate shoot for some Saturday to supplement the monthly Sunday outing.

    I have to be back that weekend for an Exercise.

    If it was on the weekend of the 15th then I would still be in that area.

    I will be in Dallas on Sunday the 9th of May and then up to Wichita Falls for the next 12 days.

    IMPORTANT!

    Here's the email I received from TJ Pilling today:
    This will be a great day! I'll collect the $35.00 fee. Send me an email and I'll provide my address for payment.

    Well guys...I am seriously in a funk! I brought my own vehicle in for service to my companies service department yesterday. My SigPro in a zipper case under the drivers seat as I was without a suit jacket to conceal. At the end of the day when I got my car back (service department already closed), the gun is gone! Apparently the technician needed the gun more than I do. I of course filed a police report and the gun is now registered in the national NCIC system to protect me in case it is ever recovered or used in a crime. This really sucks. My service department takes no responsibility for it, so I will be talking to my General Manager shortly. NRA provides for $1000.00 in free firearm coverage, so I contacted them. They are sending me a claim packet to complete and return. Hopefully I can recover some of the money this way. This really sucks! :cuss: :banghead:

    Sorry to hear the bad news. I've never had one stolen (knock on wood) so I have no advice on the insurance claim....at leat you have other pistols to use in the mean time. Since you have to remove your pistol at times, have you thought about installing a safe/lockbox in your car somewhere?

    Hey Steve, would you like me to stop by for a casual social call? ;)

    I'd be glad to do it.

    Secondly, you may use one of my Sig Pro's since I have an extra. No problem, just let me know.

    A) Have you asked the tech for your gun back?
    B) Have you spoken with your store's management?
    C) Take Al up on his offer to drop by. I hear he has a bright shiny badge to flash around. :D

    Alduro...give me a call on my cell phone if you would please.

    Techbrute:

    I had the appropriate manager speak with the technician. His first response was "I dont know anything, did not see it"

    After I made him talk to him again, he got "I saw the gun, but dont know where it went"

    Per the owner of the company, we will be giving the dirt bag a chance to provide the gun today or matters will proceed. The owner has already agreed to replace the gun, which is appropriate and appreciated.

    NEWSFLASH

    Well, I came to work today, of course armed with a different weapon then my beloved Sig. My service manager saw me walking in and quickly got my attention. It seems that my Sig was placed in the service department refridgerator for somebody to discover.

    Weapon Recovered. :D :D :D :D

    That's great!! I hope the service manager has enough smarts to keep an eye on the tech and possibly the detailer that were in your car.

    Well, it was never detailed. The car was repaired by the quick lube guys. There are two of the, which are brothers. The one that has been here the longer time is not the suspect. He did however, tell his brother about it being in the car. His brother along with only 2 other service employees were in the shop this morning when it turned up. From what the service manager has told be, the newer brother has a real bad attitude and is already getting close to being on the way out for that. I have told the service manager that I do not intend any retaliation as long as I received my gun. I will not proceed to have him fired, however, if they choose to do so for other reasons, that is their business. Anyway, its nice to have my gun back and to know that its not on the street anymore. A quick call to the Irving Police was all it took to have my gun removed from the NCIC national database by providing them the officers report number.

    By the way...Thanks Alduro!!!
