    Well guys,

    Looks like our mega-thread was terminated. I did write to P95Carry to express my displeasure and he stated he was merely acting at the request of other posters. With that said, he stated that is was not a warning or anything. Just a reminder to avoid mega-threads, in general and try to create newer threads to correspond with events.

    Thus, we will have our next shoot this Friday (same time, same place). We should use that time to discuss this month's Magnum Night over dinner. Seems that the 4th Wednesday of November is on the 23rd (day before Thanksgiving). I realize that many folks may be out-of-town (I likely will be) so maybe we should push it back to the week after (Wednesday, Nov 30th)?

    P.S.: I really miss our old thread! :(

    Actually, I'm more in favor of the Wednesday before the normal magnum night (That would be the 16th).

    Why would anybody complain about a long thread? I think someone got jealous! :neener:

    Yea, I think there was some jealousy involved. However, plenty of other long threads (not as long as ours) still going so I wonder if they'll get closed.

    As for having Magnum night on the 16th, that works for me too. We'll see what the others say when they get to chime in.

    The 16th should work for me. It'll give me a final opportunity to sight my gun in before I take it hunting that weekend.

    *Crosses fingers and hopes he's ready to shoot this friday...

    Thanks for getting this one up and running again KONY!


    Not sure about my schedule yet for the rest of the month (I do want to get out the weekend of the 19th and need to site my gun in).

    I also contacted P95Carry and agree that the thread was closed down simply because it was too long and for the purpose of trying to break it up into multiple threads.

    VA back to the top!

    There's always the cheesy, free to my domain message board on bighammer.net ;-) <-- Halloween pics that we briefly talked about in the OLD thread for VA are up. check the message board.



    I've already got shooting scheduled for the 9th... Why not just move Magnum night for Nov. '05 to Friday Nov. 25th ?

    I can certainly see not trying to meet up on the 23rd - the travel day from Hell. On the Plus side, if we hold Magnum night on "Black Friday" spouses, significant others, and life partners will be at the malls nearby, meaning more lanes available to shoot :cool:

    I'm up for Nov. 25th...

    Well, I probably won't make it on the 25th as I'll probably be on my way back home if we decide to head to NY for Turkey Day. But thats still TBA. We can still do the 16th or 30th for Magnum Night though.

    Hey I'm only posing the 25th as an alternative, the 30th could be good...

    Yes, well, your kid is hardly special to us :neener: j/k was good to see a youngin practicing his marksmanship.

    To quote the great philosopher, Eric Cartman, this is, "Weak man. Totally weak." Why couldn't we keep the old thread? :cuss: :(

    I'd like to suggest something like Golden Corral. It's CCW and child friendly. :)

    The nearest one to NRA that I know of is in Manassas, right off I66.

    Yup! I traded my P11 for it yesterday. Guy also threw in a soft case and 100 rounds so I'm good to go. :cool: Its not pristine but should be a good starter rifle. I waited way too long to get one!


    Yeah, this is a Chinese Paratrooper model with a 16.5" barrel. When imported, the bayonets were removed because they were "non-sporting". As far as tactical, it does have an inexpensive scope. Does that get me any tactical points? :confused:
    :p
