    Don't know for sure, but if it's new ammo (i.e. made in the last 30 years and not mil-surp) it would shocked and amazed if it was corrosive.

    I'll be bringing my coffee can of .40S&W ammo (155 grain FMJs, 1070 fps). I've got almost 400 rounds of that stuff, so that should be plenty.

    You're also welcome to give Miss Kaysa a try.

    If you bring all that .40 ammo, you can shoot as much of it as you like through my USP, Sig Pro, Glock 22, and Kahr K40 Covert! :D I am sure they will enjoy the attention!

    Guys,

    I'll know more tomorrow, but it's possible I might be a dad a couple weeks early :what:. If so, I probably won't make the shoot this weekend :( .

    I'll post again hopefully tomorrow when I'll know more, but if the baby does decide to come this early, at best I might get out there for a half hour, but I think even that's unlikely (she who must be obeyed and all, my eventual daughter that is :D).

    Whew ... false alarm. We thought her water might have broken, but that turned not to be the case. With any luck, she'll be OK for the next couple of weeks until the due date.

    So, I'm still in for this weekend. I have a buddy that lives in Prescott who will probably be coming down here this weekend to watch the Formula 1 race, and hopefully he'll tag along to the shoot. I don't think he has any weapons (he's a grad student but lives on campus, no guns allowed).

    The more the merrier! I know quite a few people wanting to come along to our little get-together.

    Cool, sounds like we are gathering a good group then!

    But what are we shooting at anyways? I have a few plastic bottles but that's about it. :confused:

    I'll see what I can dredge up for targets, maybe some scraps from my woodshop, soda cans, old phone books, etc.

    I'll be talking to my buddy later tonight, and I'll see what, if anything, he can bring in the way of weapons, ammo and targets.

    A buddy thats taggin along is gonna make some stand up targets out of wood that he has piled up in the back yard. Just bring some paper targets and a staple gun.

    I'll bring the digital so we can make some of the THR folks jealous.

    Cool, I got paper targets, but no staple gun...

    I'll bring my digital camera too.

    My wife just confirmed she will be able to go to.

    My wife might tag along too, but only if she's feeling espically chipper. At 37.5 weeks pregnant she's surprisingly active, but still nothing like what she was before. I know she'd like to try out a few pistols so that she can get a better idea of what she'll want for a personal weapon (my Ruger is really too big to fit her hands).

    I'll also bring my digital camara. It's a Canon Elph, a great little pocket camara for snapshots. The guy (my cubemate at work) I bought it from actually (amazingly) used it for some of his "art" photography hobby.

    My wife bought a staple gun, but it requires a wall plug :mad: Anybody got a roll of masking tape?

    I'll run off some copies of targets I've got.

    No, but I do have an inverter so you can plug your electric one in there... hehe

    I'll let your wife try out my .380 FireStorm, it's nice and small and bought it because my fiance couldn't get her hands around my Springer 1911 compact - and now it's my primary carry!

    We'll definately have to get a couple digital pictures while we're there so we can prove that we'll have had the biggest turnout of a local event on THR!! :D

    Hopefully I can talk her into coming out, but I'm thinking that might be hard to do (not that I'd blame her wanting to stay home).

    Actually, will it even be safe for her child to be out there with all the loud noises? I really don't know for sure how much the sound will transfer through her, but food for thought.

    Not that I don't want more people out there, but just a concern.

    Hahah, just wrap some earphones around her tummy! :D

    Is it a boy, a girl or a surpise?

    Probably, but not sure.

    It's a girl. Her name will be Katelyn McKenzie.

    At least it darn well better be a girl, considering the decorations we put in the baby's room, and the clothes we bought! Never mind the fact that a name will be difficult to come to agreement on if it turns out to be a boy. It was easy picking out girls names before we found out, but boys names were much more difficult.

    Quite the Schuetzenfest you guys got going, here...I'll try to clear the decks for action and meet you out there on Sunday.

    When you say "mining hole," do you think the hole is shallow enough to shoot pistols at a reasonable distance, or is it so deep that there's no point in shooting anything but a rifle?

    Right now I'm thinkin':

    - One or two Finnish Mosin-Nagants
    - Yugo Mauser
    - Spanish FR8
    - .308 M1 Garand(but it's been a little cantankerous lately)
    - FAL
    - Marlin 1894CS .357Mag
    - Polytech M14
    - Armalite AR180B
    - SAR-2 5.45X39
    - 1917 Enfield
    - M1903A3
    - Ruger 10/22

    I know, it's a long and distunguished list, and I'll probably have to cut half of them just because there won't be time to shoot 'em all or room in the ark to bring 'em out. I still need to take some of these out of the safe and blow the dust out of the bores, though. If anybody's particularly hot to try one out, I'll make space in the Honda Accord for it...

    If you have to cut it by half, my votes would be for:
    - One Finnish Mosin-Nagant
    - FAL
    - Marlin 1894CS .357Mag
    - SAR-2 5.45X39
    - 1917 Enfield
    - M1903A3

    Of course, that's my personal, selfish recommendations based on what I'm most interested in. :D

    And half of that:

    FAL
    AR180B
    M1903A3

    :D

    But I don't have any .308 Ammo, wish I had known you were going to make it Kor, and I would have picked some up at the show. :(

    I spent last night making a home made target stand out of some scrap wood.

    Not store quality but effective enough to get shot to hell.;)

    I'll scrounge around for some more materials so we have extra.

    I'll see if I can cobble together a target or two from my pile of wood scraps as well. I've got tons of leftovers from some furniture I built, plus other misc. projects.

    I talked to my friend from Prescott, and he *might* get some ammo (I told him 8x57 seems to be what we need the most), but I'm not positive that he'll even tag along. He's bringing his girlfriend, so she may nix that idea, or want to do something else during that time. We'll see, she may decide she really wants to go shooting too.
