I can't do that........ my mom might be there.
Jamie .. if we go ahead successfully .. and a contribution would help, please say. You should not have to take any loss thru this.
Actually, come to think of it, my wife will probably be there as well....and although she's married to me and thusly heard it all.....I'm supposed to behave in public for some reason.
I'll see how things go and if I end up filing for bankruptcy I'll let you know.
You guys can all pre-pay the $10 fee to get in (so I can invest it in Enron or Lucent stock and make a little money on the side).
I received this email from Water and Wings this morning:
"Let me know if you want us to have a lunch available. We do this for the cowboy shoots. We put out barbeque, salads, chips drinks and charge 4 dollars to all that want it. You don't pay if they don't eat. But ask them if they want a lunch before we spend the money. Thank you."
How many of you think you will be there for lunch?
thanks for the heads up. i tried to get the time that weekend, and all i was able to get was saturday, so i will be at the show in harrisburg with the FAL guys. look for us at a table against a wall, with a big oval sign in white, bordered by flags of the 90 some countries that have issued or currently issue the FAL.
we are just there to shoot the ????, most of the time, but would welcome any converts that might come by for a little EBR evangelising. people of a technical bent are welcome, but it's really all about having the love of the gun.
i will have a sample of the homebent AMD 65 (AK-47 type), and the unissued kits that centerfire has. anybody wanting to talk about how to build a kit on a roll your own receiver for 160$ or less and still be US legal should stop by. i'm developing an orthodoxy for that, and would be glad to share ideas with like-minded souls.
best of the weather for your shoot.
Hey James, count myself and my wife as lunch eaters.
Lunch for me too. Do we prepay or pay there?
You pay when you get there.
They have coffee and drinks there too.
Man it's such a nice day out this morning....perfect day for shooting wouldn't you say James?
Its too sunny out.
I don't want to hurt my eyes.
(check your PM punk)
Well I never...............
Replied to your PM.
I'm bringing the AR, SKS, .38 Super, P232 and the Buntline Scout.
Unless there's a blizzard or hurricane I'll be there.
As far as gun requests does anyone have a 9mm carbine hi-point, keltec or beretta... Also I'd like to try any gun with a red dot or laser sight.
I think there are about 50 of us that have them.
There will be lunch for everyone.
$4 for an all you can eat.
I'm in for lunch.
My AR has a red dot, and I'll bring the M6 light/laser for my Sig P220ST.
Jrob24 ...... not the carbines you mention but - I have and will bring my Ruger PC9 ... it's red-dotted and is a real sweet shooter.
Jamie ... I'll add my name for foodstuffs if I may.
I hate to say this cause when I say Im coming I always have some last minute crap that diverts me But Im *hoping* to make it.. Weekends are so freaking busy... But im a gona try to !!
I'm more worried about the weather myself. We all have something to be concerned about.
I made up an I.D. tag that I'll wear. I'll bring my Ruger MKII, CZ Varmint and my Bushmaster M4 A3 ( I know it's not a .22 but it does have 22 in it).
At what range distance will we be most likely shooting?
I think it might be a good idea to have name tags.
P95Carry, can you bring those tags you brought to the gun show?
Whatever your little heart desires.
Most people stay at the pistol range and shoot the 15yd-25yd and the rest hang out at the 100yd rifle range. I will be hanging around the 200yd rifle benches most of the time since it is the closest to the pistol range.
Sure, no prob. I'd point out tho - they are far from special!! All they are is a self-adhesive label ... on which you can write name and handle ... anything of that sort would work really .... just stick it on the shirt.
No offense guys, but I am NOT wearing a name tag.
Uncle Sam made me wear one for 12 years.....I'm kinda enjoying this whole anonymous thing now-a-days.
RepublicanMan, I'm a registered Democrat.
Guys!! There will be tons of new shooters and self-described liberals at this shoot. For many of them this will be their first experience on a firing line and It took me several months/years to get them to consider coming.
This is a time of opening eyes and converting people to what the 2nd Ammendment is all about. Its also a great time to explain the asinine laws that we've been dealing with over the Assault Weapons ban. I want to show people how hard it is to shoot a Bushmaster AR15 with a 3-9x40mm scope on it at 30yds (DC SNIPER SKILL LEVEL). Things like this will hopefully change some Liberal thinking minds to vote for 2nd Ammendment politicians. I switched to the Democratic party so I could vote for the more conservative minded Democrats in the Primaries and then vote for whomever I wanted to in the main election.
If more Liberals voted for the Pro-gun candidates we could change the face of the Democratic Party. Pennsylvania is a Battle Ground State this next election.
Think about it!
Its not going to be all white guys either.
EVERYONE is welcome.
I knew there was sumthin' about you I didn't like. lol
I've learned that its not the democratic party that I don't like. its the Democrats who cannot logically defend there positions.
anyways, this is gonna be allot of fun. can't wait to do some shooting.
BTW, thanks for letting me take a couple of shots with that Enfield......that thing is CLEAN. I decided that if I'm ever going to grab a bolt action mil-surp it's going to be an M-38 or an M-44 though, the Enfield didn't kick enough to feel powerful.
RM .... In that case the Enfield you want (must have!) is the MkV Jungle carbine. Shorter barrel, lighter ... nice steel butt plate that will impose itself nicely on your shoulder!!
I will bring it along.
