dpmmn just left my office. Since we are both getting itchy trigger fingers, he decided let's try to schedule a shoot for Sunday the 25th of September. That way we don't have to wait for October's shoot!

Cost will be $20 for the day. Only 2 conditions:

No full-auto or bump-firing.

No Tannerite.

We'll save that for the next shoot. Part of Kenny's agreement with the locals is to keep it more "quiet" on Sundays, so no machine gunning and blowing stuff up.

Sound off if you are going!!!

Edited to add:

Dammit. I've already got plans for that weekend. I need to get a little bit more financially stable before I can actually get out & shoot some more. I'm getting WAAAAAAAY beyond broke at the moment.

Here are directions from a link to the Defensive Edge web site. Might want to take a look around on the site too. He has some great courses. They run a tank up there so the Harley won't even be noticed.

It's a pretty good chance I can make it. If anyone is bringing and M1A I'll pick up a box or 2 of .308. I'm thinking about seeing if I can come up with the cash to buy one, but I want to make sure I'll like it first.

I dont have a M1A, but I plan on bringing my M14 up, will that work?

But there is no FA on Sundays.

Oh wait, it's not FA so it's not really an M14 then is it?

I'll bring my M1A to the meet...you tell me if its a POS or not

I've put over 2k rounds in it. Not one SINGLE FTF, FTE, any failure. Can't say the same about any other single firearm I own. Well..not entirely true; my Colt M4 upper has never had a failure on any of the lowers it's been on, and it's passed the 3k mark.

Yes, even the AUG has had a failure or two

Hey, what time is this starting? Being that it is a Sunday and all are we going to have to start later?

So, start time is what. Noon or so?

A friend from work may be coming up with me...he's not on the board, and this will be the 2nd time in his life he's ever shot a gun First time was a couple months ago and he got to try out my M4gery, my 1911, and my M9...he's psyched to come to one of these things.



ETA: Woot, another friend from work wants to join in, too. Guess I gotta bring the L1A1 as he was former Canadian Army, and he carried the FN...

Allright guys...................here is the deal

We start shooting at NOON!!!!

Dam wanted to go and meet everyone.

Folks, that was a great shoot! I know I had to leave a little early and I apologize; my friend and I both needed to head back to work and double-check some stuff before the Euro financial markets opened.

Thank you, everyone, for making my friend feel at home; he was kind of nervous about going out with a bunch of people he didn't know, but he had an absolute ball.

To everyone who was there, it was nice seeing you again, and meeting those I haven't met before!

Link Posted: 9/25/2005 2:36:26 PM EDT
Sorry I missed it. Been working on a project since Friday morning. On the up side it is almost complete.
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 2:39:20 PM EDT
Anybody get any pictures from this shoot?
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 3:32:14 PM EDT
Not that I saw..as it was a Sunday, there was no FA, no Tannerite, etc. Just a bunch of guys, no fancy explosions.

Then again, I left around 2:30 or so, so someone may have bought a camera afterwards..
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 3:58:56 PM EDT
I split early too, my SOCOM was having teething problems and it was pissing me off. Oh well back to SA. The consensus was the too tight a chamber.
Holy shit, everything is soaked, I know what I'm doing the rest of the day

Yah, thats the only thing we can figure; when it heats up, the chamber constricts, and...well, there ya go. You might try soaking a mop or chamber brush in Flitz or something, stick it on an electric drill, and Flitz away until it's good, but...well, heh, kinda hard to fit a drill in there.



I've already gone through a can of WD40 spraying everything down, trying to get all the water off. I need to stock up on more WD40.

And, of course, since this is the first shoot I've been to since I've moved out here...I realized I left all my cleaning rods back at the old homestead I was using boresnakes before for a quick clean, and was holding off for a full major clean until I got my rods...whoops. Guess I gotta hit Gunstop or something and pick up new rods in .22 and .30...
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 4:50:05 PM EDT
I wish I could have made the shoot. But I will be there for the Oct. shoot.
