    I think I'm just going to bring my Ruger Single Six.

    I never get much shooting time at these gatherings since I'm always walking around. I pretty much just bring stuff that people ask me to bring.




    Who is going to clean all the guns at the end of the day?

    My dad has a single six. It's the old 3-lug style, so we don't shoot it much.

    Lots of Ammo and some guns for sale.

    Mapquest claims that my trip from Delaware is:
    Total Est. Time: 3 hours, 13 minutes Total Est. Distance: 171.38 miles

    I will have a LOT of ammo for sale if anyone wants some, a lot of Russian and some other stuff. I'll figure it out just before I leave here.

    I will also have a dozen or so guns for sale; not sure which ones yet...

    No bargains really, just some various guns you can shoot, try and buy if you want. Just give me the money and Soda or someone will make sure there is a gun dealer nearby that will be willing to transfer them to you hopefully....

    Do you have a dealer that will transfer them Soda? Or is there a dealer at the range that will do that? We'll figure it out. It has to be done legally. The only advantage is shoot and decide -- instead of buy and pray... :)

    Ammo is easy of course; just pay and go on that! Some rare stuff most likely like some Russian Olympic Target .22 and some Norinco original green box Makarov ammo. Some case lots of some things.

    Jody, the only shop I know that might be open in the area is about 25 minutes from the range and I'm not sure what his price is for transfers. You can look him up in the Super Pages, Seneca Arms is the name of the shop and I believe the name of the town is either Green Lane or Sumneytown PA.

    John from Seneca, like all God-fearing men, does not do business on Sundays! ;)
    That is a great gun shop though and worth a visit. It's the way gun shops used to be, musty, dusty and filled with lots of old junk (and treasure).
    Mrs. 9mmMike and I went there instead of the VF show one Saturday. We looked at every gun in the store. It was like a mini-show. Of course we've spent a little money (M1A's, 870's, 1100's) there and he knows us pretty well.
    I used to work with a guy who bought dozens upon dozens (not kidding) of Mausers from/through Seneca.
    John is an A1, class-act.

    Yep, his name is John....I've only been in there a couple of times but he does have some NICE stuff in there. He really struck me as a stand up guy too....I'd gladly send him business that can't be filled at the shop I work at part time.

    Flint......I found an AR-180b for sale today at a local shop, unfired trade in, price is $550.

    Another thing.........


    Any of you that are travelling from out of State are invited to bring your State flag. I will be flying the Pennsylvania State flag and the Culpeper Minuteman flag. I will also be flying a 48 State American flag that has been in the family for years (minus California and New Jersey).

    If the weather is nice, based on the last couple of weekends....I'd highly suggest getting there fairly early as it's been crowded enough that people were having to wait for a bench to open up on the Rifle and the Pistol ranges. I'll be there around 8ish to make sure target stands are up and to help people get set up.

    Any suggestions for a cheap DIY flagpole, or can I just bring my VA flag as-is?

    If you can't come up early you can still come up in the afternoon. I have several tables reserved and if things keep going the way they are......... I may have to reserve half the range. EVERYONE will be able to shoot. We may have 30-40 people there the way things are going.

    I have a pretty good relationship with the owners and we will be able to pull the tables and create a new firing line if we have to. They let me do that before. Everyone please keep all of your firearms organized and mark all of your bags and cases. Several of us will have similiar firearms and we don't want to mix things up.

    It'll almost certainly well on in the morning before I get there but .. a question . I usually ask this with ranges i don't know.

    How far away is parking?. I have an other than well behaved back and carrying is never easy.. so I like to get as close as I can ... and usually bring a small dolly too. Just useful to know in advance so as to plan better.

    Oh and ... if it should be wet ... how much cover is there to keep guns dry etc?

    The parking area is about 25 - 50 feet max from the covered rifle range positions. Worst case, you can get close, unload, then park if it's too crowded when you get there.

    There are at least 10 completely covered rifle benches you can put stuff on/under in case of wetness.

    You can pull up to the rifle and pistol ranges and its about a 20yd walk. There is plenty of parking there and most of us is within 50yds of the rifle and pistol range. Several of us will be available to help carry stuff up to the range if need be. You aren't the only one with a bad back.

    I volunteer Jody Hudson to carry all of the heavy artillery.:p

    The rifle range benches are all covered.

    The pistol range is not.

    If we are going to have really bad weather I'll cancel this since I'll most likely be putting up money to reserve the range.

    I've left W&W after seeing my targets get constantly blown down. You try setting up a target at 200yds, and then get into firing position, only to find out your target got blown down. Now do that 3 times and tell me you wouldn't get sick of it. Do I have to duel you or something?
