    Were do you bump into forum members?

    I was at the local range over the weekend. I took a new shooter out with me to introduce him to the world of handguns. He is stationed in Korea currently and only gets to play with the M4.

    He did fairly well with the Sig 226.

    While at the range I was talking to another shooter and well it turned out that he is also a fine member of our cult.....thehighroad.org :)

    He was even kind enough to let me shoot a few rounds through his DE.


    Thanks VR

    On occasion. Usually at gun shows or the range (imagine that). It was funny, though, when I ran into three forumites at a LFI-2 class in Richmond.

    I'm more likely to bump into Bigfoot than any THR member way out in this neck of the woods. :uhoh:

    I get recognized a lot. "Hey, are you Larry Correia?" But I tend to stick out in the crowd a bit. :)

    Plus this is one reason why you wear Molon Labe hats! (shamless self promotion)

    Yep. Ran into Monkeyleg at a gun show. Cool to put a face with a screen name. :cool:

    ** Forgot to add Dolomite (Craig). First met at Matt Burkett's class, then at the WI State IDPA match. :D

    A few times, but usually previously arranged. I bumped into Dan Flory and Chis Rhines one fine evening, but I quickly apologized, because no one bumps into Chris with impugnity!
    Molon Labe clothing is an indication, but not a sure thing. "TheFiringLine.com Alumni" shirts are even more telling.

    This was during the TFL era. I shot the Croc Dundee Banzai Ballistic last year in Dundee Or. It's a very high round count IPSC match. After the match I posted on TFL asking if anyone else was there. AlleyCat (I think) responded and it turns out he was on my squad (AKA Steve Alley). Memorable because he was shooting a revolver.

    Others who have seen my face wouldn't describe the experience as "cool." ;)

    I started talking to a guy who worked at the gun counter in WalMart and he ended up being a fellow THRer.

    Wow DigMe - we got us a WallyWorld employee. Can he get us discounts on ammo or do you think his boss will look kinda funny when the semi pulls in and he tells the guy just to empty in front of the pick-up trucks in the corner of the lot. One pallet, two pallet, three pallet, four. :D

    Thus far - not knowingly. Often wonder if at gun shows we wore some subtle ID to show 'THR' .. maybe we'd find more ..... and more easily.

    I hope very much to make aquaintance of just a few at the South PA fall shoot end of next month - 26th (another shameless plug!!):)

    Never ran into any when I lived in Kansas, but then I moved to Colorado.

    You can't swing a dead cat around here without hitting a THR/TFL member :neener:

    Hrmmm...

    Saw Bainx and 19112XS at the last gun show.

    Chatted with my downstairs neighbour (rennaissancemann) when I got home from work today.

    Saw pward on my front porch yesterday when he came by to visit the neighbors.

    Gave my rent check to my landlord, hso, last week.

    Oleg and Preacherman spent the weekend a couple weeks ago.

    Had brunch at my favorite local eatery with Marko Kloos yesterday.

    buzz_knox may be avoiding me. (Hey! I'm working out at Randy's these days; don't come say "Hi" or nothin'! ;) :D )

    Mebbe some I'm forgetting...

    While shopping at Federal Way discount guns I started talking to a guy who was trying to decide between various models of cz pistols, I say blah blah go to the high road.org and there are a lot of good opinions on these guns. He smiles and says he is a high roader already, tis a small world indeed!....tom
