I'm not.  I've got to work 16 hours each day from tomorrow until Monday, so you'll probably see me posting a lot.  I'll probably be replying to my own messages.z

I'm not. Can't afford it.

I'm not either.  I was suppose to work on a project this week including this weekend but it was cancelled at the last minute Tuesday.


My Parole Office won't let me leave the state.


My friend at the ATF said not to go.

I'm going to hang out here.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 5:12:38 PM EST
I'm not going.

I'd like to meet everyone, well, almost everyone.

I'm sure it's going to be an epic.

But my wife and I have an 8 month old, and I miss so much of her infancy just working 12 hours a day that the idea of missing several days is unacceptable to me.

There's always a next time.

So I'll be around, posting my ass off.

I can't afford it because I haven't had a job in over a month and a half now.  Plus I have a wedding to go to on Saturday.

God Bless Texas

If they had had it somewhere Alaska Airlines flies I would have gone (I get free tickets because my mother works for them), but combined airfare and board would have broken the bank this time around. Maybe next year.

Thanks eswanson, congrats to you on your new life, too.  Don't know what I was thinking all the years I could have had her with my wife and me.

Carl Buck sounds familiar, but I certainly couldn't put a face to that name.  I didn't know him well, if at all.

I am not going...

I am closing on my new house this Friday, and then have to start moving during the month of June... :)

If I had the money to go to the BRC I'd buy a gun instead.

I resent that! I am not an "Internet Freak". I am a regular, old fashioned freak. Wanna see my human skin collection?[BD]

Bummer that you guys can't go. If it goes off good, there's always next year!

Personally, I'm dreading that 45 minute drive.[:D]

Take pics of these so-called "freaks" and post them for us with their AR15.com IDs...

Can't go, wish I could. It sounds like fun.

I sure hope the site doesn't crash.

I regularly travel a lot for business.  I just don't have the energy to travel for pleasure. [|)]

Maybe next year if things slow down a bit.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 5:48:16 PM EST
I'm not going because I'm a wimp and don't want to go alone.  My friends are worse than wimps because they don't want to go at all. No they are not Liberal or anything like that! They just aren't into guns as much as I am. Fools! G.F. wanted to drop me off at the BRC, head for the biggest dot on the map and shop all day. Two days of both of us spending...That I definitely cannot afford. I guess I'm going to stay an internet freak for a year.[%|]
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 5:49:48 PM EST
Well I was going with Stealth but I got hit with overtime and couldnt get away.. So I guess ill be here...
At least Stealth is bringing back a shirt for me.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 5:50:49 PM EST
Unfortunately, I won't be going either.  I've got a couple other shooting events planned this summer and in the fall, so I just had to prioritize.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 5:53:04 PM EST
Not this time.
I'll have to keep busy doing something else.[sex]

Gotta Work...[50]

As much as we would love to, the cat-man and hunydo will not be in attendance this year.  Gotta get the garden in and get to work on the house and help babysit the ar15.com site.  Who's bringing the beer?  
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 7:19:08 PM EST
I got to stick around and count all this FFL money.
Link Posted: 5/29/2002 7:24:12 PM EST
Being a poor college student, I don't have the money.  The fact that I have finals starting on Monday might have something to do with it too.

On a side note, maybe the next BRC should be out west somewhere.  Like Vegas (frontsight) or something.  Just a thought.

Alas, I can't make it this year either... Financial reasons, and lack of vacation time... maybe next year!

I'd like to take about a case of ammo for the AR, about half a case for the M1, and half a case for the .45 so I can get in plenty of shootin.  Stay in a decent motel, and have enough vacation time to stay the whole weekend and drive up and back.  Maybe next year!

Link Posted: 5/30/2002 6:00:38 AM EST
I just can't stand driving that far - over 12 hours one way.

Also, going to New England for July 4.

I'd like to meet everyone, but maybe next year.

Link Posted: 5/30/2002 6:05:14 AM EST
I can't swing it either. As a self-employed small business owner, there was no one but Mrs. Wiggy available to work while I was gone. We are having an incredible year and one person simply could not handle it all, darn.[:D] Maybe the next one will be closer to the southwest part of the US.

I decree that we will set up a government in absentia and rule the site with an iron fist!

 First rule - 5subslr5 is elected King for the term of this long weekend, but he has little power that is not sanctioned buy the entire remaining membership of the site bu unanimous vote!
 Second rule - I am the Minister of War and can operate indepentdently of the King, but not against any other members, unless they are being really uncooperative!

Can you guys help me with the formation of our new government?
Link Posted: 5/30/2002 6:17:05 AM EST
Drill weekend also, and I already missed one this year to go to Vegas...

All of you that are going PLEASE be safe and make it a good event, I beg of you.

( I ask this mostly out of self-interest, I want there to a second one that I can go to.)

Is anyone NOT going to the BRC?

I can't go. I'd like to, but can't.
I will have to live it thru all the pictures and posts that will be made after
it is all over.

We're not going either. Still busy with spring planting. Maybe next year if it is later. Bad time of the year. I did send a big box of embroidered items for door prizes tho.
Besides, let them get all the "bugs" out this year....
Link Posted: 5/30/2002 9:12:43 AM EST
I'm not, and it's getting pretty depressing reading all the posts from those who are going.  (I tried to ignore them, but I can't.)

So who else is in my boat?  It seems like everyone is going, although I know that's not true.  Surely there's got to be a bunch of us who can't make it for one reason or another.  I just hope someone who goes will keep us updated throughout the weekend.

I have known I couldn't attend from the moment the dates were announced. I don't have any vacation till June 4th and we can't borrow against it. Sooooo.... in exactly 5 days, I will have 3 weeks of vacation.

Oh well.... Bulletfest is ON!!! June 29th!!

Link Posted: 5/30/2002 9:34:11 AM EST
Alas, not I either.

Family committments.

Maybe next year ?

Y'all shoot straight and be safe!

(Never mind all those vans with dark windows parked nearby - they are from the gubmint and are at the BRC to protect it from Muslim fanatics!) [;D]

I can't make it either, my little brothers graduation is on Sunday.
