High Rock.  Wow!  That brings back memories.  Remember the mud parties years ago when the lake was drawn down?  4x4's, mud buggies, hot wimmenz, broken driveline parts, blown engines, beer, scantily clad babes, broken u-joints, toasted transfer cases, hotties?  Neither do I.  


hahaha, with all the beer I'd bring I don't think you could even haul the beer coolers with that itty bitty engine.

Is that little shooting range still there on a access road going into TuckerTown Dam , right there on the Denton side off Highway 49 ? Denton is fairly close to Gold Hill.

Shooting and/or fishing is ALWAYS good anytime.

Nope, FS closed it down shortly after Flintlock Valley opened.  Probably for the best, that place was an accident waiting to happen.

Greenville is full of gays and used to host the Down East Gay/Bisexual/Lesbian festival. Thanks to poor turnout the festival is no more. The Freedom Loving United Socialist Peoples Republik of Chapel Hell is the Berkley of the East Coast. Where is a M3 Half-track with Quad .50 when you need one?

yep, but only once, M-Forgery, u352, and I got togethor probably two months ago now and shot the hell outa some targets out there. I'd really like to become a member, they have plenty of space and I'm in the need for a bigger range with my Mosin, AK, and soon AR, but their startup fees are too rich for my blood. A Fellow UNC Worker huh? small world.

Know Talorsville pretty well, Sgt.  I work for the guy who is known as the "Meanest Bastard in the State".  

Yeah, I'm lookin for work.

When I go shooting I usually go to the mountains or to a friends place down towards Lincolnton.

I would be glad to get to know you, but I must warn you - I have "grown" since my military service (bad hours, bad job, bad eatin, and not enough women).  Not too many people around here from the board.
