    Earlier I posted that you needed to be a member of the NRA to shoot at Manatee. I was wrong. It seems that I misread the info brochure.

    You only have to be a member of the NRA "If you wish to join the club"

    Again my apologies. Thanks P5 Guy.

    I'm in- if ya'll don't mind a beginner taggin' along! :) All I have is my .38- buncha wad cutters and a handful of hydra shok. It'll be my first time at a gun club. :uhoh: Had the basics class and got my CWP. Don't know many places around here that I can go, yet. Don't often get time to go either so please, bear with me. I'm taking a personal day off and I NEVER do that! Time for a break :neener: Boss man can't say no! Sounds like a great way to spend a Friday- can hardly wait!!! :D

    I'll be there if at all possible, about the only thing I can think of that would prevent me this time would be the closing on the deal.

    I'm hoping the rain blows out for Friday. The field needs to dry out a day or two.
    Does anybody have a digital camera they want to bring to document the frukus?

    Loadin' up. I may be there a bit after 0900 though. It's 252 miles from here as mapquest and the website instructions figger. With a short stop for gas ice for the water and soft drinks, and breakfast at a Cracker Barrell.

    I made it to the Fruckus and returned home in one piece.

    The thunderstorm in Orlando slowed me down considerably.

    After action report.

    A good time was had by all.

    The official drink of the fruckus was reduced suger Coca-cola.

    Casulties, Jeff Timm, attempted to clear a double feed failure,
    staple got me right in the finger tips. :cuss:

    Fortunately, I had a backup staplegun.

    Manatee is a great facility.

    I'd like one with a little more looseness (the antithisis of safety)

    It's a very good range, but perhaps we need to spread out a little.

    Of course I don't have a range nearly as nice as Manatee in the immediate area.
