    resurvations have been made with Armored fire gun range in circle pines for feb 29th (sun.) 2:00 pm on. I estimated for 12 people but more is o.k. It will be $18 for the first person and $9 for each person sharing with up to 4 people per lane. Any rifle or pistol is o.k. but no steel core ammo.

    I am in.

    By the way, we need a seperate meet up forum section section for meeting threads. One area could cover the whole world. It would be nice to get them out of general, and to where they would not sink so quickly.

    I'm there. I was bummed I had to miss the THR shoot at BPR. Sundays at Armored Fire is perfect.

    I forgot to tell you all! If you want to rent any machineguns at armored fire let me know asap. I can call the guy incharge of that and see what I can do.

    It kinda depends on what the deal is. If they wanna charge $50 to everyone that touches it, then thats probably not something I'd be interested in. But if it could be set up so all the shooters split one rental fee plus pay for the ammo (theirs only?) that would be cool. If you can find out how much they'd charge for multiple shooters on one gun, and wether we can bring our own ammo or not, that'd be cool.

    I got snowed out last time. I will try to make this one. I will be bringing lots of .45s. Kimbers, a colt, springfield, and S&W if anyone wants to try them out.

    Ah... um... that's a bit on the steep side. I might have to pass on this one.

    one more time, if anyone wants to shoot for nothing when the weather warms up, contact me.......at least in the 40's..........we can shoot at the Oakdale Gun Club range where I am a member and can bring 3 extra people besides myself to shoot...........25,50,100,200 yard ranges.....

    Yeah, um, I just realized, at the last shoot I put Clyde on my little name-tag. FWIW, I go by Clyde on a goalie BB. So, anyhow, maybe this time I will actually tell people who I really am. :D

    dleong: That is $11.25 each for four people, $12 each for three, and $13.5 for two. It is not too much more than BPR.

    I may be interested in splitting a machine gun if we can each chip in a little bit. If we each have to pay $50 I will defiantly pass.

    I like Jem357's idea but do we really have enough Oakdale members for twenty people?

    Hmm, when it is warmer I may have to take you up on that morning afternoon during the week offer. I work nights usually, and usually I take off at least one weekday every week.

    I'll see if I can twist Jeff's arm on MG prices. I think you can split the fee, I'll check.

    Count me in for the Armored Fire shoot, I couldn't make it to BPR.

    Jem375, I'd be interested in going shooting sometime. Like goalie, I work nights too, well 3pm to whenever actually, more 2nd shift.
    Need to find a place to shoot my .22-250 anyways.

    Let me know, sounds like it'd be good time. :)

    See you all at the range :D

    If you guys go with Jem375 could you send me a PM? I may be able to go, usually any time after noon mon-thu is fine, or anytime fri-sun should be ok.

    This Friday should be in the thirties, practically a heat wave. :D

    I was out at the range Sunday when it was 17 degrees, after awhile I could not feel the ammo to feed my magazines, my fingers were so cold.
    We should wait until it gets up into the 40's at least, so we can enjoy shooting................goalie, wintermute76, and dustind, when it warms up, I will take you 3 out to shoot.........ok?

    Been there Jem, me and my old man when out a few weeks ago when it was about 10 below, wasn't to hard to load the FAL mags, but my .22 mags didn't load very good, it's always a plus to be able to feel your fingers :D

    I'm a "maybe" for the AF shoot. I'll know better next week.

    There were a couple cameras used at the BPR shoot. Anyone going to post the pictures?

    Yeah, I have a 375 H&H I will bring. Nothing like shooting a shoulder-cannon in the cold hehe.
