    The Colorado contingent of the High Road met today at Larry's ranch in Pueblo. Here's about a third or half the group.

    Larry was a little less than sure which part of the shootin' iron to look through, but...

    'Twas a family affair from start to finish. This lad—name already forgotten: sorry!—kept his index finger well away from the trigger except when he was ready to shoot. Many an adult could learn from him.

    Nearly everyone wanted to shoot the fully automatic .22 rim fire rifle.

    The left side of the range featured moving and clanging targets.

    The ladies were well—and ably—represented.

    I'll post more pictures tomorrow; I won't, however, post any pictures of the pot luck part of the festivities, since I don't have a wide-angle lens. Suffice it to say fears there wouldn't be enough proved unfounded, and it was de-glorious-licious.

    Yeah, the .357MAX and that handrifle you see Larry shooting where both real cool ... makes my little Mak seem so puny :p (also since it took Justin and I a couple of mags of rapid fire to knock down those darn poppers with 9x18).

    It was nice to put some faces with the names here.

    Thanks to Larry & the Mrs. for being such good hosts! Long drive from the flatlands but well worth it.
    Only one problem; Thanks to Dr. Rob, now I just gotta have a .357 max.!

    Larry,

    Thanks for everything. It was great to finally have a Colorado THR/TFL gathering come together. Sasha and I both enjoyed your hospitality - and your shooting range.

    After shooting eerw's 9x23's, I'm hooked. I've got to get a 1911 chambered in it now. Same power as .357SIG but as tame as a 9x19; faster on target than .45.

    Labgrade's .309JDJ will not soon be forgotten, either.

    thanks!

    Zak

    Recoil of the .309jdj is barely noticeable.

    A great day!. Sandy and I stayed up late last night talking about it. Total number of people there was Fourty-Two!

    Let's make this an annual deal! I'll be offline until tomorrow morning, hope to see more pictures then.

    Oooo, lookes like a good time. Regrets and apologies we didn't make it ya'll. The phone started screaming no heat at me, so I had to stay and work. Nature of the beast in this trade. I did put two off until monday hoping to go but it just didn't stop. And the sun shines again today...(crap)



    Izzat Labgrade in full recoil with the 309JDJ?

    No no no...I was there as a reperesentative of the evil media, doing an undercover story on those super fun...er...um...I mean super eeeeeeeeviiiiiiil assaultdeathkillweapons. :neener:

    .22 LR UZI...Just the thing to rock and roll with after your parents have told you to TURN THAT NOISE DOWN! :D

    I certainly had a good time yesterday. The only thing more impressive than the spread of food was the number and variety of firearms. It ranged from single action cowboy guns to the aforementioned UZI, to some very cool Open Class IPSC race guns, to target pistols, and stuff of practically every nationality, operating system, and design.

    It was really cool to be able to put names with faces and just generally hang out with others who share a similar passion.

    The only downside to the whole thing was the weather, which started out kind of chilly and overcast, and got downright cold and wet a few hours later. But no worries- we still had plenty of time to shoot, eat, and hang out.

    Kudos to the Ashcrafts for offering a place to hold the party, as well as providing a lot of the food.

    :)

    There was much to see and admire and ask questions about—and envy, too, at moments.

    The hand cannon's negligible recoil made it one of the more popular guns to shoot.

    The dogs helped reset targets and pick up brass.
