    AAAuuuggghhh....

    I already had a heck of a time shoe-horning an IDPA match in for that day and that was a snug fit!(Moving into the new abode that weekend:D )

    To all have a great time! Shoot safe, shoot well!

    I didn't ....

    .... go hunt turkeys, I asked about a 'turkey shoot' that someone else had made a statement about. Sheesh(feathers slightly ruffled) !

    The offer for moving, if genuine, wouldn't do anyway, as I stated previously that an IDPA match is already in the planner for that weekend. That match is at Easton Fis & Game Club, starting at 12 noon. With the associated drive(Reading), match time and the usaual what-not, the bulk of the day is pretty well shot(no pun). Take that with the move event and spouse-to-spouse relations are the next(actaully first) thing to put in order.

    That means.... no-go on the shoot this time.

    Priorities differ from person to person. Mine are God, Family, Country and all other things/items follow in some order behind those. In any event, as before, I hope everyone has a GREAT time. Shoot safe, shoot well!

    Amen! Hope you can make the next one Nvrquit. We need more 10mm people. :) When`s the next IDPA match at EFG? I`ve been meaning to get to one over there for a couple years. Marcus

    Sounds like you've got your priorities strait. :)

    nvrquit, people have specifically asked me if you were coming again.

    Next time......


    Good luck with the house!

    THR PA Gatherings & other sorts...

    Thanks to all for the wishes and kudo's, very appreciated.


    Marcus,

    Here are some links to the three clubs that I attend for IDPA matches:

    http://www.eastontacticalops.com/
    http://www.ontelaunee.org/
    http://www.lprgc.com/pistol/idpa/

    The first is for Easton Tactical Ops, Tactical Ted Murphy's site. A link to Easton Fish & Game is on the page, AWA a slew of stuff from previous matches at E, F&G and a few other sites. The second is for Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club's site, with the club again hosting the PA IDPA State match. The third is for Lower Providence Rod & Gun Club. LPRGC is actually the closest to my current residence, but the club I manage to get to the least(Strange how that seems to work out).

    On the 10mm, the 10 mil community is strong & growing. The 10 mil Phoenix is definitely out from the ashes many nay-sayers attempted to bury it in and starting a climb in the caliber ranks. I'll let it go at that. Welcome to the 10mm club!


    SodaPop,

    I always try to schedule events fairly far in advance for the year. Everything/event goes in the planner. Helps to keep my otherwise cluttered mind clearer for the more important things. I'll keep an eye on the posts for the next gathering....


    To all, Shoot Safe, Shoot Well!

    Will there be any 10 mm shooting?

    I am very interested in getting a full size Glock 10mm.

    I would love the chance to shoot one.

    Also, I will need to buy some ammo so if someone is going to bring one to shoot, I'll need to know what kind of ammo it likes so I can get some ahead of time. OR, I can purchase some from the gun owner if that person will allow me to buy ammo and shoot the gun.

    Will any of the 10 shooters be attending?

    A very dear friend of mine has a 10mm (22?) Glock. In fact, it was the first Glock I ever shot. I could borrow it but he is in Bagdad right now.
    I did not find that it shot all that differently than the full size (21?) in .45.
    I will make a call to his Mrs. but chances are slim at best that I can get my hands on the 10mm by next weekend.

    10mm at the PA THR Gathering....

    .... since I'll be campaigning the G20 this year in IDPA and if the match runs fast that Sunday, I might be able to make the gathering. However, it would only be after 4 PM at the earliest, so I'm not sure if that would work out, in any event.

    SodaPop, would that be too late in the day? Sorry but it's the best that I can do, what with attending the match and all. If it's a possibility, I'll try to let the match director know that I would like to go through the match as #1 on the first relay/squad, though at Easton that doesn't make that much difference.

    Should the time not be a critical factor for the gathering, I'll make sure that I bring not only the Glock(G20) but also the S&W 1066 and the Tanfoglio Witness Compact(Wonder finish). Those three should wet the appetite of anyone wanting to try out a 10mm pistol. Sorry, no carbines, Delta's, Dan Wesson's, Double Eagles, Bren's, etc....., as with the new house I can only afford so much.


    9mmMike,

    Glock's 10's are the G20(same full size frame as the G21, but heavier slide) and the G29(again, same frame size as the G30). I wish they made a compact 10mm along the lines of the G19 though; 4 1/8" barrel with a 12 round capacity(goodbye AWB:neener: ) and one in the chamber or the same top end with a single stack, a-la the G36. Hey, tactical tupperware anyone:p ! Oops, I almost forgot the G20C, the ported version of the G20. For more on the Glock 10's, scoot on over to the Glock Talk forum and drop in on The 10 Ring and browse a little.


    Sorry, I didn't mean to OT hijack the thread!:D

    Thanks. I knew it was one up or down from the 21. I am actually an avid Glock shooter but, you guessed it, all 9mm!
    I don't hit GT very often except for the PA club and HighPower club there. It became dominated by folks who thought it was a chat line or something. Many of them are quite nice but I swear that there are a few who just like to here themselves type. Ha!
    I've no idea how the old TFL and THR do it but the caliber of folks and the threads here are always top notch.
    Mike

    My favorite Glock is the Glock 20.

    First time I fired one was at Woody's shoot a few years ago. I thought it was on par with the 45acp as far as recoil. Its a very controllable firearm.


    It might be but I'll give you my phone number and you can call me if you are on your way.

    Check your PM!

    If you guys want an Arsenal AK to play with, you better find me a FFL that will do transfers on a new gun ASAP. My normal guy won't do transfers on a new gun. He insist's i buy new guns from him. Normally i wouldn't have a problem with that because i'm willing to pay a bit more to support a local business, but he can't even get the gun i want! Help a local guy out!

    Jamie ...... now we've reached the point where numbers look extremely good .... makes me start to wonder just what to bring. I doubt each individual shooter is gonna get a huge amount of time on the firing point and so .. maybe not worth bring dozens!!:p

    IIRC from the start ... you mentioned a heavy bias on .22 ... so that covers a few. Over and above that .. well, hard to know what. I have several items of interest which I'd be happy to put in for others to try .. but again not sure what!

    I forget whether I made a list earlier ... but can if it seems useful .. and then just put in extra's ''by request''. Open to suggestions (trouble is - I like shooting every damn one of em!).:)

    I will have to see how many people actually show up and then adjust the firing line to accomadate.

    I may pull some of the tables off of the firing line and some of us will have to shoot off the bench. Nothing wrong with that is there???? ;)

    BUT!! I have gotten requests for some 22LR bench shooting at the 50yd pistol range, I might set up some 50yd targets at the 100yd rifle range instead.


    I am also thinking about putting stickers on everyone that is a NEW shooter and getting some of you Vets to train them in groups.

    If we do have a heavy turnout please speak up if you want to do something specific. There is also the 5 stand that some of you can wander over to. There are shotgun rentals there.

    Anyone with a table and chairs PLEASE BRING THEM! There is a lounge you can sit in but you can set up chairs on the grass behind the range.

    I can probably make it.

    If I do I'll bring...

    Carbon15 - AR15 Pistol
    Dan Wesson .445 Supermag
    AR15 with .50 Beowulf upper

    and possibly many other oddballs.

    How could I forget a couple .22lr's as well.

    I'll have to get out the reloading supplies and get busy, to have enough ammo for anyone/everyone to try a couple shots with the .445 and the .50 Beowolf. Good thing I picked up the .50 Beowulf dies yesterday.

    Clubsoda, call Tanners at 215-343-3103, I am fairly certain that Ray will do a transfer for you on a new gun. They're in Jamison on York rd so you'll have to drive a bit.

    A&G - Archery and Gun Outfitters is a bit closer than Tanners and they will most likely do any transfers. They are on 309.

    .

    I've always been more of a lurker than a poster but I'll be making the trip.

    Also if anyone is interested in those Starlight cases that's making the rounds, a friend of mine is picking me up a few at a store local to him and I could get a few more to bring to the shoot for those who want one. They aren't as cheap as those down in TX but at around $95 or so with tax it sure beats the $250 retail.

    I did some checking around for transfers. Defcon 1 will be open until 4pm. They do transfers for $34 (ouch). Nice guys though and they have cool stuff (lots of black guns,Class3 etc.). It`s in Coopersburg about 15-20mins. from the shoot. Better yet, Noxamixon Sporting goods in Quakertown (10mins. from the shoot) will also be open and does transfers for $20. :) Very easy to find too,but no cool stuff.

    I`ll have my 10mm 1006 there for sure. Guess I`ll have to pick up some 180gr.Corbon hotties for it so folks can get the full 10mm experience. ;)

    Nvrquit,thanks for the links. I gotta try some IDPA this year,it looks like big fun! :D

    Btw,I`m probably bringing my Dad along also which is pretty cool since he`s not really a shooter. He`ll be bringing his Buckmark,Kel Tec .32, Browning T-bolt straightpull .22 rifle and the antique Stevens .22 Favorite/ Sharpshooter I bought him for his birthday. :) Marcus

    That's why I missed one of your shoots before. Just don't schedule a shoot in turkey season.:neener: There's only two seasons a year. Its that simple.:D

    It sounds like there's gonna be a 'cast of thousands' for this event. We might need Cecill B. DeMille to organize who's shooting what at any one time.

    Oh yeah....I picked up a bunch of carbine ammo last week.:)

    I was going to un-invite you if you didn't.:neener:



    Guys..... I'm waiting for a few more people to respond to this before I make a final decision, but I may request the entire range for us.

    Please don't hog the pistol range. I think the fast majority of you are pistol shooters, but please take advantage of the fact that this is one of the biggest RIFLE and SHOTGUN clubs in Pennsylvania.

    Also...........I would appreciate it if we could plan on a group photo around 2pm.

    I assume you're taking into account that 25-50% of the people who say they're coming will be no-shows. :eek: ;)

    I just realized I have a bunch of FAL mags that need to be function tested (once I clean the gunk out of them), including two 30-rounders. The same is true for ALL of my AR mags, except for the neutered mag that came with the carbine. If you don't reserve the range, I'll just set up to the immediate left of one of the non-THR benchrest guys and start "testing". :D
