Looks fun, but it seems like a long drive for a shoot. Even with a FABULOUS cast of characters such as the folks on this board.

My thought too. We can shoot plenty in Texas without going too far...

Well, since I am working in Central Texas, I will probably go, it depends on my work schedule. Do we have to pre-register, or can we pay the day of?

A LONG drive ? Are you friggin nuts?

GIBrat, the Gloftoes and I drove TWENTY-FOUR HOURS to go to Bulletfest in Ohio. And you can't/won't drive up from whereever to hang out, shoot and get drunk?

Jeez.

Rescue Diver is a cool class. It's even slightly better than Divemaster class in my opinion - IF you've got a good instructor.

Now back to your regular thread....

If you can't make it to Waco for Gunstock for legitimate reasons, then you are forgiven.

If you don't make it simply for stupid reasons....just do us both a favor and don't tell me.

I was planning on making it this year. Unfortunately I ship out Oct 21.

We're having a baby within the next week or so. Somehow I doubt a weekend shooting trip would be encouraged by my better half.

I'll do my best to be there next year.

I have been assured that there will be paramedics there. So you can bring your wife. If she has the baby there, she will be in the best of hands. I mean, who would you trust more, a paramedic, or a doctor named Dilpak? Also, if the baby is born there, you could name it Arfy.

Very encouraging, and a line of reason that might sway me (but not my wife). Actually, there's a very good chance she'll have had the baby by then, which makes even LESS likely that I'll get out of the house.


Also, if the baby is born there, you could name it Arfy.


I already have a daughter with the initials "AK." I lobbied to name this one "Eugene" or "Eugenia" (depending on gender), but unsurprisingly that got vetoed.

I also tried "John Moses" and "Townes" (no gun connection, but a strong Texas connection) with no luck. But this one is supposed to be a girl, and a girl named Moses probably wouldn't be too popular.

Hope all of you have fun in Waco. Stop by Tony Demaria's for some barbeque if you get a chance.

'Damned Yankee'?

Son, if you are presently living in Texas, and you love living in Texas, you are no longer a 'Damn Yankee.'

You are a Damn Texan!

I am gonna have to cast a dissenting vote here, ETH.

My ass may be in Texas, but my attitude will always be from Nuevo York.

I retain my own claim to Damn Yankee

Well, I am living in Texas. (Just bought a house here, in fact. First time homeowner, woohoo!)

I do love living in a state that has a much better attitude about guns than my home state. (MI)

So, sir, I humbly accept the title of Texan, and pledge to uphold and defend the honor of my adopted state. (but Michigan will always be home. My momma/grandma would whup my backside if I didn't remember the way home once in a while, and unlike a few others of my age group, I learned to RESPECT my elders.)

You drive too slow!!! Only took me 17 hours!!!!

GUYS. This is not just a shoot. This is your chance to meet some of the folks who have us in stitches year round.

Fuck, I only shot about 50 rounds last year.
The only reason I am taking guns this year is to loan to travelers who don't bring their own.

Naaa Man, it gives you a reason to fire up the 4x4's and 4x4 ATVs!

Were so used to not having ice/snow that when it finally happens they call all the squad cars in unless theres an emergency...And me running the streets is not such! LOL...I wish to get completely snowed in for a week.
