Flying from South Florida to Louisville with my 7yo son for 4 days 3 at the Creek, got a hotel for a good price, gonna take my boy to see The Patton Museum and the Louisville slugger factory also. I hope to see the Great Troy Sellars from InRange still waiting for the hardware for my folding conversion. Tannerite and 50cals and GE minigus, oh my! If you see a short skinny guy wearing an InRange Tand with a 7yo say hello. My heart is beating with all the fun I am gonna have

Welcome to Louisville! You may want to head over to the Frazier Firearms Museum. It's very close to the Lou. Slugger Museum/factory. I have not been down to it yet but have heard good things about it.

Hopefully this October I'll make it, but this time doesn't look good at all...

Ironically, the weapons museum will not let you carry a CCDW weapon inside.

I am going either Friday or Saturday morning but am not sure which just yet.

As with past shows the tables can be perused best on Friday, BTW it closes about 9PM and its not so crowded that day, Saturday night's shoot is the best with the blinding explosions and the tracer rounds.

I was planning on going.

I was informed last week by my company I will have to work in NC on the 8th and 9th. Will be traveling on the 7th, so it looks like I'll miss it.

Mabye next time.

What time should one be at the main range to get a good view for the night shoot? I've been to the show once during the day and it look liked like there was very limited seating and standing room. I have friends driving down from Detroit to watch so I want to make sure they get a good view.

From what I could tell the year I went there was seating for maybe a couple hundred while I hear thousands attend. If the night shoot starts at 5pm but it doesn't get dark until 7pm does that mean we need to find a seat around 3pm to get a good view?

It is supposed to rain Friday evening...business as usual at the creek.
It rained most of Thursday. Fairly big storms coming Friday evening. Mid 50's Saturday and Sunday with mild wind.

I will be there tomorrow around noon or so.

We just cancelled our trip because one of our guys couldn't get off of work and the other guy decided he was going to NY to try to get some pie.

We were too cheap to split gas and camp site cost two ways.

Drizzling miserable day here in SDF, well get ready for muddy shoes but I am going, rain or no rain, I came this far, no turning back, took my son to see the Louisville Slugger Factory, awesome, it sure feels good being back in the USA, only kidding
Link Posted: 4/11/2006 10:09:33 AM EST
What a blast! The 1500 shoot saturday was smoking as was the night shoot, saw a Krink SBR built on a American recr for just $1200 at Jeffs Shooters Supply, think I might buy another.
