    Since we have not had a MN meet in a while, fellow THR member dandean316 and I are offering to host 4 guests for a visit to the Dakota County Gun Club in Rosemount, MN, at a date agreeable to all interested. dandean316 and I work regular hours, so we will only be able to meet in the afternoon (say, after 4:30 p.m.) during the week.

    The club features a rifle range with stops at 25, 50, 100, 200 and 300 yards, a pistol range and a bowling pin range.

    If you are interested, please send a private message to either myself or dandean316, indicating a date and time that will work for you.

    Thanks!

    It turns out the fellow THR member P0832177 is also a DCGC member, and he is willing to host 2 members for this gathering. That means we can now host a total of 6 guests for this "Mini MN Get-Together."

    The date and time of the gathering will be decided once we have enough people signed up.

    Okay, then. It's set: Friday, June 11, 2004. Let's meet at the carpark of the McDonald's in Rosemount at 4:45 p.m. (the restaurant is located on the south side of County Rd. 42, about a quarter mile west of the intersection with County Rd. 3) and then proceed to the range.

    THR members dandean316, P0832177 and I can host a total of 6 guests. Please respond in the thread if you are interested.

    Man, I wish I could go. P0832177 (John) has been kind enough to take me out shooting a few times as a guest, but lately I have been too dang busy remodeling my cabin to get much of anything else in my schedule, and this weekend is window installation. I did finish ripping out the plumbing and replacing it, replacing all the electrical, installing several more lights and outlets, remodelling the bathroom and some painting/staining, so the end is in sight.

    John, we do have to go out again, shooting your .308 makes me feel young again, like 20 or so. :D I hope you got my e-mail. If I don't respond for a few days, I am up at the lake.

    Maybe this would be a good time to figure out what gear everyone is bringing? Any rifle shooting? If so, I will bring my ugly but accurate .22 rifle. Anyone interested in something in particular? I have a Detonics Combatmaster if anyone is interested - tiny .45 grip. Also, I have a Kel Tec .380 people were interested in last time.

    I like simple things; any 1911's or any .45's.:)

    If any of you are 300-yard rifle shooters, this is your opportunity to "go the distance!"

    I shall be bringing a few CZ pistols and one of my AR-15s. I can also bring along a Yugo M48 Mauser and/or a Chinese SKS, if anyone is interested.

    We shall bring my Marlin .30-30, hopefully with new WWG ghost-ring sights to zero. I expect my son will want to bring his .22 pump as well.

    Sidearms will include my 1911 and S&W 442. Might also bring the Kahr P40 along to see if anyone wants to buy it. ;)

    I won't be there, as I will be working on my cabin, but I vote for P0832177 to bring his .308. It shot a tad over a quarter inch off the bench at 100 for me, I am interested to see what his loads do out a little further. If you want to know if you have good trigger control, shoot that rifle from the bench. :)

    I like it when other people who are supposed to be working on their cabins have time to volunteer ideas! Hey are you the boss? Oh I know you are on a union mandated break!

    I could bring my HK USP's and the 625 to plink with. I can bring a varmint ar that shoots pretty good!

    I'd like to see what my FAL can do out to 300 yards. I can also bring my 16" AR.

    Handguns, probably my 1911's and my Stoeger .22 target pistol for sure.

    Anyone interested in anything else? I have and AMT Automag II .22 mag, Taurus M85 .38 spl, High Standard Sentinel Mk II (Dan Wesson 14/15) in .357, Ruger Single Six. I can also bring my Mini-14 if anyone wants to shoot that.

    dandean316 -

    I'd like to try your Kel-Tec. Been thinking about one for a month or more.

    High Possibility of Rain-Out

    I just checked weather.com for Friday's weather.

    Not good: strong storms and wind, with a 60% chance of precipitation.

    How do you guys want to handle this? Should we postpone?

    I guess postpone if it's raining. I'll probably go back to work in that case.

    Do you have directions to the McDonald we're meeting at coming from the north metro? Looks like 35E south to east 46 over to 3 and north to 42 is easiest. Or should I get on 3 up by 55 and 494?

    That route would be the most expedient, since you'd be avoiding the gridlock of 42.

    If you don't mind a few more traffic lights, a slightly shorter route would be I-35E south to Cedar Ave. (77), then south on Cedar to 42, then east on 42 to the McDonald's just before the intersection with 3.

    Meteorologists are professional liars, so perhaps we should wait till about noon to decide whether or not to go ahead with the meet. What say everyone else?
