Link Posted: 8/21/2003 6:28:14 AM EDT

My Mom calls me worse on a good day. I will be there. Waiting for QS, is he coming after work? He may need to meet later than 4pm.

To avoid complete Hi-Jack, why is Psywar1-0 moving here anyway?
Link Posted: 8/21/2003 7:38:13 AM EDT
Yeah, it'll have to be after work. I won't be there till 5:30-6 or so.

Link Posted: 8/21/2003 4:22:21 PM EDT
So do yall have FRS radio's that we can use do do a link on for Friday evening?

Now as to why Im moving here. I grew up in Indiana and my current job is overseas. I work 17 on 13 off and can live anyplace that I want. I chose to return to Indiana as it has much better gun laws than NY and I am able to see my family more than 3 times per decade like when I was on AD.
Link Posted: 8/21/2003 4:50:09 PM EDT
It looks like I will be showing up sometime on Saturday.

I just bought some FRS radio's! I even put batteries in them. Pick a channel. I am open on times. Just sold my business so I am the unemployed one. welcome home.

PS I didn't grow up in Indiana, but I did go to high school here and I could not wait to leave! Then I came back, turns out, it is home for me. I just got a call tonight from the QB on my old football team. They want the original team to come for the 25th anniversary of our varsity program. Small town team. We started the team ourselves and even built the bleachers ourselves between practices. I guess that makes me a Hoosier now. How many bad movies does this remind you of?
Link Posted: 8/21/2003 5:37:05 PM EDT
I will be there Sunday at 11:00 am I won't leave Crown Point until 8:30 am this time due to extra passenger that won't get off work in time.
Link Posted: 8/21/2003 5:49:13 PM EDT
Well, it looks like we will be there about 5:45...what channel for the radios?
Link Posted: 8/21/2003 7:42:50 PM EDT
Psywar carries the rank of team leader. Exactly what the Indy ARFCOMer's needed. He will lead us to the right frequency.

Link Posted: 8/21/2003 8:37:37 PM EDT
PSYWAR and I will be there at 1600 but will join the group arriving at 1800 by the entrance, for anyone interested.
Link Posted: 8/21/2003 9:15:07 PM EDT
lets make it easy on everyone. Use channel 1, if there is too much traffic, channel 5(The NY ARFCOM official channel)
Link Posted: 8/22/2003 5:18:31 AM EDT
Well horseshit..I walked out of the house without the radio this morning. If I don't make it back home today, I'll see you all at 1800 at the inside of the entrance.
Link Posted: 8/23/2003 6:10:59 AM EDT
I was looking for ya! Not sure what I was looking for though. I was there a1600 though.I was the dork with the Elite 3200 15x box

Link Posted: 8/23/2003 11:16:51 AM EDT
We didn't know what time to look for you Jerry. I got there right at 4 P.M. on the dot and met up with Psywar. QS, ML, and Zoub finally showed up, not sure at what exact time though. Great bunch of folks! Definitely not the inbred toothless weirdos I thought they'd be We went to dinner after the show and shot the shit for quite some time. Can't wait to do it again or organize some type of shoot one of these days.
Link Posted: 8/23/2003 11:20:49 AM EDT
Everyne got there around 1800. I wondered if you were there. We hooked up via the radios. They worked great since most of us had never met before.

We were easy to spot, bunch of guys walking around with packs and gun stuff. No long beards, nobody smelled funky, a fairly clean cut group for a gun show gathering.

The radios are also great for regrouping when someone takes a wrong turn off Keystone Ave. QS is a shooter not a Navigator. He had cops on his tail as soon as he pulled out of the show. I say we keep channel 1 and 5 as the official ARFCOM Indiana channels. There was no traffic on those channels!

I can honestly say I had a great time, enjoyed meeting everyone and I realy enjoyed dinner. I have not laughed that hard in a long time. We should keep the Indiana ARFCOM crew going. I can see trying to meet others in Northern and Southern parts of the state.

I'll be down there Sunday. I'll take my Frs and listen fer y'all. Anybody see any good deals on lowers? I'm looking to get one and build my own, maybe I'll get two of them.
Link Posted: 8/23/2003 4:48:30 PM EDT
IIRC there was someone selling lowers for 89 bucks? These are Postbans of course.
Link Posted: 8/23/2003 5:11:26 PM EDT
Seth, did ya see that dude selling the Tapco FAl G1 kits as preban 50s? He had 3 and started giving me and HoosierDaddy some speech about how he has a special licence to manufacture FALS with banned features and sell them to me,All the parts were original but the Cheezy hesse uppers LOL. Godda watch those dudes. There were several guys selling FALs,just walking arround carrying them. Oh well,have to save some $ for next time. jerryboy

I didn't look too close because my Brother lives in VA and he is picking up some Eagle Arms lowers for $90 from Quantico Arms. Maybe others have them at that price too?

Hey Quiet Shooter and others. We were discussing how a silencer can start to come loose from the vibration of shooting. I discussed that with my brother tonight. Being an RD engineer in the marine industry, the truth is vibration is a bigger problem than water in a boat engine or tranny.

He uses these washers called "wave washers". They are a solid washer, not split like a lock washer, but they are slightly curved, very thin and have lines on the surface coming out radially too. I guess you use 2 together for best results. If anybody wants some, let me know what thread sizes you need and I am going to have him send me some when he mails me my birthday gift next week!
Link Posted: 8/24/2003 3:02:53 AM EDT
Yes, there was a guy with several of the Mega and Stinger lowers for $89 each.

Jerry I didn't look at any FAL stuff at all, I was on an ammo and 1911 mission
Link Posted: 8/24/2003 7:13:53 AM EDT
You mean,your no longer tupperware gun boy status? Good old 1911.

My buddy's from mod. one sales had bins full of 1911 slides and bbls.Can't hurt those things.

Hey guys...just got back from Ohio on the 'Scare The Shit Out Of EladEflow Road Trip'!

I'm brain-fried from all the driving!

It was cool meeting you all - good guys, all of them. And Seth didn't even wear a black balaclava - I was kind of disappointed!

Link Posted: 8/24/2003 2:58:33 PM EDT
Well i just got back from the 1500 and i never saw $89 Mega's. I did get a RRA for $110 OTD. Lower parts were $52 from model 1 so I guess I didn't do too bad for my first DIY AR. Have to save up now for the upper. Saw some nice ones from J&T and Model 1.
