[center][img]http://itomnt1.cob.appstate.edu/web116/ar15/group1.jpg[/img][/center] Well to those who missed the shoot up here in God's country, all I can say is that you missed one of the most enjoyable shoots that I've attended along the best group of guys that I've had the pleasure of shooting with. The weather was absolutely [b]PERFECT!![/b] The stages were fun, challenging, frustrating if you didn't concentrate, and enjoyed by ALL! I'm going to bed but I'm sure the other attendees will add to the description in the next few days. Here is a website I threw up with some pics of today's fun! The remaing pics will be FTP'ed over Monday morning as I'm currently connected to a long distance ISP & it has taken me 50+ minutes to FTP the pics that are up there.

Man that looks like a great range you guys were at. How was the course of fire set up? What did you have to do?

To the members who missed out on this shoot...you missed a great outing. The weather was perfect, the Blue Ridge foliage was ablaze with color and the barrels were smoking. The effort it took to attend was worth it! The Tactical Carbine Match with five stages, lasted 4 hours. It was set up to duplicate the carbine course of the Blackwater Training Center. A Blackwater graduate assisted as our range officer. The "shoot house" stage was exceptionally fun. Clearing a house using live fire, with a timer and scorekeeper person on your heels, is a big adrenaline rush! To the fellow ar15.com members in attendance...thanks for the camaraderie, stories, tips and techniques. And thanks for letting me shoot your assortment of guns. To Steve(mtnpatriot)...[b]thanks for making this gathering of friends possible![/b]

BTW, here are the results: [img]http://itomnt1.cob.appstate.edu/web116/ar15/038.jpg[/img] Jetflyer was the high scorer from the AR15.com gang and is the proud winner of Garand Shooter's very generous $50 gift certificate. Subvertz was the 2nd high scorer in the AR15.com group and won himself a Cuban cigar (AND HE DOSN'T EVEN SMOKE!!) [b][red][i]Libertas an Mortis![/b][/red][/i]

Does anyone have a link for more information on the setup inside the house? I'd like to know more about what's done to make that safe. The idea of live fire inside a house, where I can't see my backstop, makes my stomach knot-up.z

VERY SAFE shoot house. I have some photos of the inside I can scan latter this week and I'll try to describe the building in that post as well. [b][red][i]Libertas an Mortis![/b][/red][/i]
