    A Wombat?

    Well you have door #1

    Or door #2

    Door #2 is more a more accurate portrait, but door #1 is closer to the spirit perhaps...

    Well, "wombat" really isn't some special symbol to me or something like that, as many people think. I just came up with it out of the blue, and it seemed cool.

    Yeah, 45R, that would be great. I've been wanting to shoot an upgraded one, so I can evaluate whether it would be worth it to upgrade ours, too.

    And, if you could...
    Bring those sweet Ti Chopsticks!

    We'll be bringing:
    Stock 10/22
    Browning Buckmark
    S&W Model 19
    (It's all we have :( )

    If I can make it out I'll bring out the 10/22. Regardless the upgrades are worth it, esp the trigger work. A VQ target hammer makes a huge difference in the trigger pull. All that for just 40 bucks. Are you shooting irons or scoped?

    I'll bring out the chopsticks also :) I gotta use something to eat my food.

    I'm there. The 10-day for my new (to me) Colt is up Saturday, so I'll bring a bunch of ammo for people to try it out. :)

    Hey Wombat- I may be able to make this one. If so, I'll have my Mini-14 (stainless w/ Hogue stock), Colt .38, Win 12, 10/22 (these 10/22s are pretty ubiquous, aren't they?), and k-31.

    More good news; I just received my two cases of Fed M193 .223- Great stuff, Lake City brass of recent vintage and all NATO spec. I highly recommend Wholesale Hunter.com; $3.19 a box of 20 (I just missed the $2.99 sale) and delivered fast.

    So that puts me at around 3k rounds of .223... better bring another AR to the shoot.

    45R- Well I guess that means we'll just have to have ANOTHER range day later in the season when you can make it.

    What a shame, making us meet up again to shoot guns in the great outdoors like that. You'll probably make us cook and eat some barbecue as well. ;)

    One of these days you guys should consider a Laguna Seca Shoot and gathering in Monterey CA. Nice range and nice people running it!

    I'll be bringing my 'fred's aqt's' will Los Altos let us shoot them is a better question. Generally ranges poo-poo rapid fire at 25m with military-pattern rifles :)

    On a similar note, what kinda "gun games" do you all think would be fun to bring? Fudge, forgot they don't allow holster use at los altos, thats lame. Anyone have a steel target say, a 5" steel plate, we could put at 100 yds, and shoot on the tin can line. One shot per person, offhand, you miss, you drop out, until one person remains?
    Sounds fun to me.

    PS assuming I can find wheels, I'm totally coming.

    atek3- no joy on the steel targets. They won't allow it. I've got a fat garbage bag full of .5 liter plastic water bottles though.

    Hey Sven? Do you have any more of that tempra paint for the water bottles? If not I'll pick some up in the city this weekend.
