    Maybe we could make it this weekend or some time next week? That would give me a chance to pick up a load of 223. I've got a line on some decent brass-cased stuff.

    I checked their website, and the Family Shooter's Corral is not too far, though they do charge an hourly rate. The Pit might be good for some unstructured fun, but the drive is a bit further. Still, not having shot anywhere but the local DNR range, I think I'll leave the choice to the folks who can make an informed decision.

    I'll be happy to bring a trunkload of goodies to wherever you guys decide.

    Saturdays are good for me too. I might be camping on the 16th but any other weekend is fine.

    Saturday would be great for me as well. Maybe we could congregate mid-day or early afternoon?

    Though I usually have an opinionon everything, I think I'll leave the range selection to the long time residents of Michigan. That would work fine, but Family Shooters Corral would be a little closer.

    We've got to generate more interest in this thing--we're getting our butts kicked by the California rallying point!

    I'm cool with family shooters corral.

    Thats the problem with the Michigan crew. Whenever someone tries to get a shoot together people will say there in and not show up. I will post this over on GlockTalks Michigan board.

    Maybe we should push the shoot back a week or two and see if more people will come?

    Jeff, there is a match scheduled for that location on Saturday. You might want to call ahead to see if the range will be available.

    If you guys want to shoot with just 3 of us thats cool by me. I'll be there a bit later than planned though. I have to stop by BWSA and put in my app. and watch the 3 gun shoot.

    I won't be able to be there till 3pm or so. O do we want to delay it a week or 2? Either way I can be there tomarrow, only a little later than planned.

    Once I become a member of BWSA it is time to cut back on the pit, its to far and to much of a safety concern.

    No problem. I can understand how the needs of a fiance might be a slightly higher priority than those of a bunch of folks from a message board who you never met. ;)

    My schedule is pretty flexible, so I am game for pretty much any shooting within reasonable driving distance.

    I am 99.9% reliable even to a person I never met. But getting nagged can rattle my head. Like I said if your up for Sunday I can be there early like 10am. I have to be in Alagon around noon-1pm that day. They open at 8am until dark, I can come later after the event if it works better.

    Later in the afternoon (start at 1-2PM or so) would be best for me.

    The pit is in Lapeer. Go to www.familyshooterscorral.com for information on the range.

    I will be there at 2 pm.

    Great! I'll meet you at the Family Shooter's Corral at 2PM. With me will be a large supply of goodies.

    Edited to add: Maybe if a group of us shows up, we can get the "family shoot" discounted rate (?)

    This just in: the shoot is set for the Family Shooters Corral, tomorrow at 3PM.

    The cool part is that if we get at least five people to show up, the "family" rate of $20/hour applies. That would be a maximum of four bucks per person, per hour. Not DNR cheap, but you'll be able to put more than six rounds in your gun!

    Ready for another?
    How about the pit or Island Lake this time?

    Jackson was a bit far for me on short notice. Sorry I couldn't make it to the last one.

    I'm in need of some recoil therapy and group therapy is always more fun. :p
