    Yup!

    Oh yeah, can you post a map to the particular mining hole you are aiming for so I can plan my route? Don't want to get lost! :D

    Hey denfoote, why don't you rent a Civic? After rental and gas (2 gallons? :D) to refill it back up, I think the fun you could have would easily out weight the costs!

    denfoote, think you can make it? Where in the "vast Sonoran Desert" do you live?

    I know there's other AZ members out there. I really think it would be more fun if we could get half a dozen or so of us together. I'll see if I can figure out a few more potentials and PM them to point them to this thread.

    Here is a little map I made of the Old Vail mining hole.

    Treasure hunt anyone??

    You can find plenty more here, although the drive is a bit farther.

    Thanks for the map, looks easy enough, almost freaked when I saw 7 mile hike! :what:

    Did we pick the 20th or the 21st though? I looked back and it seems like we never said a date for certain. It would probably help our gathering if we put a post in "General" to go check out the Rally Point for an Arizona shoot too.

    Either day is ok for me, although Sunday I wouldn't be able to go out until after noon due to morning church...

    I've been PMing the link to this thread to Tucsonans I see around posting.

    :D

    Im in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just let me know what day. Either is ok for me.

    I know WhoknowsWho works 12s on Friday so I think Sunday works best for him.

    Either way, I will pick up boo-koo ammo at the gunshow tomorrow.

    Now, if we can get the Phoenix folks to join us. ;)

    I drove up there in December.

    Lennyjoe, great to you're coming too! Either day works for me, though as Colin said, it would have to be after noon if on Sunday due to church. WkW what say you? Sounds like with your work you are the one with the most restrictive schedule.

    Let's make it the 21st then, early afternoon, 1 o'clock? 2 o'clock?

    I'll get there early and set up some marking tape on the bushes to make the turn off a little easier to find.

    As for now, my paycheck is screaming "Take me to Jensen's!!" :D

    Sounds good to me. Let's just say we'll be there from 1-6PM and people can come and go as they need to.

    Sunday sounds good.

    I will mark it on the calander.

    Now I gotta buy more ammo at the gunshow tomorrow.

    :D

    Sunday sounds perfect to me! Hopefully it's not too hot, or raining or something. (I can't believe it's raining right now!)

    My wife will also most likely be there with me, though her schedule is in a state of flux, so I am not 100% sure, either way, her .41 Magnum Desert Eagle will be there! (but I only have about 100 rounds for it :( )

    What else are you all going to bring? I really don't think I have space to bring everything, but I will definately bring the Mosin Nagant, AR-15, 1911s, SIG Pro, Desert Eagle, and a few .22s

    What do you normally do for targets? We used to take jugs and stuff, I'll try and save mine for the week.

    Wish I could go - my days off are Monday/Tuesday. Really would like to try a mosin, since I found them for $50 recently! Long hike from up here in marana, too, but thanks anyway!

    Guess I'll bring the Kimber Pro Carry II, S&W 1006 10MM, Browning Hi-Power and Glock 19.

    Also, those of you that are man enough, a Mossberg 835 with 3 1/2" mag turkey loads.:D

    I'll bring Miss Kaysa (my Swedish Mauser), plus my Ruger P944, and Winchester 190 (.22lr). If WkW or somebody else brings some 8x57 ammo I'll also bring my T38. That covers my entire collection. I only have 120 rounds for Miss Kaysa, but I do have about 400 rounds of .40S&W, plus 1000 .22lr.

    I'd certainly like to try that 10mm, see how it compares to my .40.

    I'll keep an eye out for that too.

    I do want to try that 10 mm too, I'll keep an eye out for that when I go to the show tomorrow too.

    Make sure we save that for near the end! I don't want to shoot all day with a hurt shoulder! :D

    You gents are more than welcome to try out the 10MM.

    I forgot to get some 10MM ammo at the gunshow today.

    Did by .45 ammo though.

    Buddy of mine purchased a Walther P22. I'll make sure he brings it. Cute little bugger.

    Did he get the long 5" barrel or short barrel? My wife has the 5" barrel one which we will bring also.

    I hope miwall has some ammo left.

    Gee, that was the most worthless stuff I have seen at a gun show yet... alas... I did get 2 boxes of Olympic 8x57, 8MM Mauser ammo, and a box of 10 MM New loads from Miwall, and some Aguila Mini 12g Shells, always wanted to try some. And I also picked up a Beretta Storm CX4 in 9mm, just couldn't say no to it, so anyone who was interested in the space gun, I will have it available!

    $4.95 + tax, cheaper than I expected.

    Not bad. It is non-corrosive, right?

    I'll chip in for one of those boxes, or we can trade trigger time to even it out.

    Anyone else going to bring some non-corrosive 8mm? I have a guy who's going to load some up for me, but they won't be ready for probably at least another month (he's ordering the dies, and brass and bullets now).

    Well, it's the Olympic Greek stuff. I looked at the box, is a Sinoxide primer corrosive? I looked at the box when I got it, but didn't see either yes or no, and I can't imagine new production ammo to be made corrosive. And Midway USA lists it as being non-corrosive so I am quite sure it is safe.

    We can trade trigger time, well, as long as you have something I don't have! (I haven't fired a Ruger since my first time I ever shot, so shooting one again will confirm if I want to get one or not) It will easily be worth it, rather than $9 to rent a autoloader at the range.
