So its only $10 for a first timer?. Ok hypothetically speaking say a guy has a plain old A2m4gery and hasnt been able to afford an optic, has a 2 mag pouch but no vest or knee pads or anything else tacticool,has a semi-auto pistol with extra mag but only has a cheap nylon holster that holds the pistol and 1 extra mag....would it be worth his time and embarrassment to come out and shoot?Hypothetically speaking of course. I know it sure looks like fun.

Yup, you'd be just fine.

You don't have to be Mr. UberOperator to play. I use an old school GI H-Harness and M16 mag pouch.

So there I was at 8:30am this morning sitting in my crown vic up by the office at centerline(didnt know where to go, being my first acts shoot), and I get the F'ING call...." you need to come to work". . So here I sit at work for no damn reason when I could be out there having a good time and learning stuff. Oh well, maybe next month. So do I need to stop at the office next month or just drive back? I did see some vehicles driving back...but I've never shot out to center line before?

Sorry to hear that. That kinda sucks. If'n it were me, I probably wouldn't have answered the phone. Next time you can just come one down to the range. If you get there and the gate is unlocked on match day, that means I am already downrange setting up the stages.

Yup. Lookyloos are welcome. Bring gear with you in case you decide you want to shoot.

so that was you in the tan crown vic
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:47:59 AM EST
yup, that was me. Just sittin there drinking my coffee, waiting to see where to go. I wish I hadnt answered my phone too, but they were tricky and called my house first so it was my wife calling me, I had no idea..oh well.

So how late do these matches usually run? How much ammo should one bring?

depends on stages usually 3- 4 stages and maybe 20 + shooters done by say 4pm +/-

200 rnds of 223 and 50 of handgun will get yah through besides if yah need more we have some to share now and then..........

My vic isnt real shiny anymore. The headlights on my truck quit working while I was trying to sell the crown vic, so now the vic is my new pickup truck. It doesnt look real pretty but its still fast, just ask the calhoun county sheriff dept...they let me make a donation to the 10th district court last week.

ETA. Of course if the gas prices get any higher, ya'll will see me pedeling in on my bike with the ar slung over my back and an ammo can strapped to the handle bars.
