I notice more and more people are posting from the state of Iowa. What do you say we all get together and have a shoot before the end of summer or at least early fall.

Keep it up. I'll be all over you like a rat on a cheeto! How big a boy are ya, anyway? I hear the birds fly upside down over iowa 'cuz thar ain't nuthin' worth shittin' on. What does a girl from Iowa say when she loses her virginity? "Git off me, Daddy...yer crushin' my cigarettes!" Why is Minnesota so windy? Cuz Canada sucks and Iowa blows! R.D. Mercer

Hey Roy - get off the porch and put some shoes on and pick up one of those square things with paper in it and do something called "reading" you num skull. I seem to recall some Iowa boys often called "Grey Hounds" pounded your southern butt before - you lookin for more of the same? Show some respect to some freedom loving Northerners - a Southern Gent you are not. Iowa has CCW and more of it then any other state I would say. So stick that in your corn cob pipe and smoke it!

Iowa has CCW and more of it? Come to Kennesaw Georgia...we have a law that REQUIRES every household to have a gun and proper ammunition. Beat that. BTW...all you offended sister kissers from Iowa...At least we have the courtesy and respect to actually marry our sisters! Now THAT'S a gentleman fer ya!

Geez Louise!!! I was all ready to apologize for stepping on toes in response to your post until I got to the last three words. I am actually from the midwest (MN) and have extreme pride in my midwestern roots, including my Iowan relatives. In Minnesota, we give Iowan's a good natured ribbing just like here in Georgia we like to pick on Alabamans. Your lack of a sense of humor and poor use of the English language speaks volumes of your intellect and is a sad reflection on you. I know you are not a fair representative of the good people of Iowa. Although the hard-working and generally stoic demeanor of Iowan's makes them easy targets, I believe most people would realize it was all in good fun. (except you) To all others my apologies and good luck with the shoot! BTT Roy D. Mercer

roy D mercer, sorry i got so worked up. a friend watched me type that and said i shouldnt end it like that. i guess he was right. i will edit it in respect.

Matt, thanks for editing. I would like to point out that out of the 14 posts to this topic only four were from actual Iowans and only three of them actually showed interest in a shoot. I take exception to the inference that I am somehow keeping people from getting together to shoot. If anything I have been useful in keeping this thread off of page 3 were I found it again this morning. Although my sense of humor may be weak, at least my posts have kept this thread alive. So again with my apologies and best wishes (sincerely) I'll BTT again. I truly hope that all the enthusiasts in Iowa take Zipster up on this invitation. I realize that gun owners are our own worst enemy sometimes and I wish not to contribute to the problem. I think we DO need to keep our humor though. Good natured ribbing and interstate rivalries have made this country worth living in. (e.g. Army vs. Navy...Texas vs. Oklahoma, etc) Useless post mode: off

Well, I for one am from Iowa and am enjoying it a whole bunch. I was raised here in south central Iowa. Leon in fact. We in fact just moved back here from Colorado Springs after 8 years out there. Miss the mountains, but don't miss the traffic. Have more time to shoot here anyway... Patsue

Grew up in Storm Lake and now live in Sioux City. Iowa is hard to beat. On top (or near) of the nation in education, ag production, and conservative values. Unfortunately, we have four urban areas (Des Moines, Waterloo, Iowa City,and the Quad Cities) that overrule the greater majority of conservatism in our state and it seems that our presidential electoral votes go to the friggin Dems. The Iowa map after the election looked like the national map when comparing urban vs rural areas voting. In any case, you'll be hard pressed to find a better state to raise a family. As far as shooting, I'd be happy to make a trek to the Des Moines (central Iowa) area for an Iowa shoot.

Van Meter, just west of Des Moines, on I-80 has a great 800 yard range that is flat and surrounded by forested hills on two sides. There is a seperate pistol range and picnicing areas there too. It'd be a great place for a fall (when it's not so humid) get together and shoot. Count me in!

Spent 4 great years in Iowa in the Mid 70's. Great place to live, great place to raise a family. When I first got there I had to get used to some of the agricultural commercials though. Example: The Treflan commercial of two pigs running towards each other in slow motion across a field with the theme of "Love Story" playing in the background. Man were those a trip to a guy from the east coast. There, the idea of summer youth employment was de-tassling corn for Pioneer seed. 12 half mile rows of corn to yank the tassles out of. I felt like a migrant farm worker for about a week doing that shit. Did some great waterfowl hunting out at my friends cabin on the cedar river. Chicago was close but not TOO close. I read somewhere that Iowa was the most "white" state in the union with only about 5% minority representation. Having lived there, I can believe it. An even better reason to go back since this usually equates to a lower crime/poverty rate.

CrimsonGhost: Iowa IS flat! I got married in Newton at Maytag Park (for you non-flatlanders, Newton is where the famous MAYTAG brand is made). Newton was like Mayberry, and if I could have left everything and stayed there, I would have been living in a dream. I could NOT believe the differences compared to where I grew up. Still, when we drove back into Washington, I was astounded by the mountains and water and green of my home state! Too bad we can't just shitcan all the Liberals outta here! RoyDamnMercer: Kennesaw has some nice folks! My long distance carrier is Marathon USA, a pro-gun organization based in Kennesaw. And, the girl on the phone there was just "skippy"!!! I hope you guys get together for a shoot. Good Luck and Have Fun. BTT for the cause.

TRW, iowa was the whitest state, but meatpacker IBP changed that with thier illeagle mexician immagrant smuggling. soon a town near me white is gonna be a small minority. seriously, they have taken over the town
Link Posted: 8/10/2001 1:34:44 PM EDT
Wow, I lived in Storm Lake for 2 years from 1990 to 1992, and worked at IBP there for a few months at the end. You're not kidding about the Hispanics taking over the town. Been to Aurelia, Sioux City, several times. Now live in Leon, Iowa way down south

The best TV commercial aimed at farmers was the one for a food supplement for hogs to fatten them up. Their slogan was, "slows the feed to speed the finish." I accuse my native Iowan wife of doing that to me.

OK this thread is dying and I want to get a shoot going. Please email me if you are interested so I can get this worked out.
