    There will be a group shoot at TDSA this Sunday, the 9th. The official start is 10AM, but a small group will be there around 9ish. If you are not a member of TDSA and you want to join us, that will not be a problem, just let me know in advance.

    I look forward to seeing everyone there.

    357ish, 358ish, whatever it takes :evil:


    HighV - Can you bring something in 9mm for me to shoot just so I can say I have tried 9mm? People don't believe me when I tell them I've never shot one, so I need to get it over with.

    ^^I'll bring my 226. I love shooting that thing.
    I'm also going to bring my Bushmaster with my freshfromthesandbox aimpoint that needs to be sighted in.

    I know that shooting the steel with rifles is a no-no but what about a lever action using 38spl or 357mag?

    Can't imagine it would hurt, but I can't imagine what it would hurt shooting steel with XM193 either. M855 maybe, but plain old ball 5.56 shouldn't hurt the steel if it is of any quality at all.

    However, I won't argue that, but I would think 38/357 wouldn't hurt a thing.

    I have some AP in '06 for the BAR if you ever really need to punch a hole in something.

    And I'm telling you, this black powder thing can be a problem. You can sit at your PC and mail order BP handguns all day with no problems, for under 300 in most cases. It's going to be hard to not do that.

    I'll bring the G34, too, if you want a turn with it. I never cared for the whole DA/SA thing.

    I think the big problem with shooting those plates with rifles (aside from the fact that some people don't know what kind of ammo they have) is that the shock from the impact breaks the welds. The plates don't have any holes in them, but they've been broken off and rewelded repeatedly.

    I'll likely go.

    I will bring my chrony to see what some of my reloads are doing, vel-wise. If'n you wanna see how fast yer hawkleg slings lead, youse gotta swear not to shoot my gear. That honor is reserved to me.

    I have destroyed 1 chrono in my life, when I was shooting IPSC. I have taken a vow never to be near one again, but thanks for the offer :D

    See that little clock in the bottom right corner of your screen? If you double click it a calendar will appear. :neener:

    Hey, easy with the smiting and general plagues of genital warts. Just how would I explain something like THAT to my wife?

    If Len is there I'll sign up & I'll expect more Saturday outings (even if just my lonesome), since I don't wanna miss church all the time.

    TDSA is in the middle of nowhere :)

    Head down I-45 south out of Dallas to Malloy Bridge road, then it's off to the east a few miles. It's well before you get to Ennis.

    If you need directions they are on the TDSA website here

    I would guess 30 minutes from downtown Dallas, maybe a bit less.

    thank you

    since I'm a good bit North of Dallas, 30 miles south of Dallas is a decent trek. Maybe next time. Good shooting.

    Well I am on the edge of Ft Worth, and it is a trek. It's also the only range within 100 miles that doesn't have a range nazi, does allow draw and shoot from concealment, and shooting rifles from other than a bench, so we suffer the drive.

    Traffic is really light on Sunday morning. As long as I don't look at the gas gauge I enjoy the drive.

    Yeah, I just went out side and it's pretty soggy here. It looks like it's going to be sunny this afternoon though. Hopefully it's going to be a nice day tomorrow.

    I think most of the rain was over here to the west.

    4 Shooters, lots of dead swinging steel, and 2 poor cardboard boxes that took some massive tissue damage from the 00 Buck.......

    My BAR was banging steel at 200 and Tech was doing the same with his AR. Love that sound!

    I shot some steel at 100 from standing positions. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone I stood up.

    Good weather and empty range with no one watching over you.

    Nice :evil:

    About halfway through the shoot some District Attorney something or other with a badge came over to borrow a target stapler, then came back to ask us what the LOUD thing was. Dunno, maybe the .357 of Jason?


    By the way, what was the model number of that tiny little Glock that Techbrute had?

    I hate Glocks but the more I hang around you people..... :D

    The weather sure was amazing. I could have stayed until the ammo ran out.
    I did learn something today too. You can't place calls on a Glock mag. :neener:
