I told Shi-Huang-Di this today and I might as well share it with you all.
At work I am running into a LOT of materials! Just today I got twelve 6'9"x4' sheets of galvanized 25ga steel with all edges bent at 90degrees 1/2" all the way around.
I have tons of tec screws, bolts, and assorted hardware.
All the signs we put up at my job, usually come crated in 1"x4" wood that I am as well saving. I am trying to get plywood, but unfortunately my boss uses pretty much all he gets his hands on.
2x4's are scarce for me too.
Steel, on the other hand, is not.
I guess what I am getting at is;
This Saturday my wife gets out of school at the earliest 9:30. I want to make it to the range and hammer some steel with the trusty ole AK for a few hours if possible.
If she runs late I will probably make it to the range after noon ( reason is I have to get the girls to acting class if Kelly can't make it home on time.). If that is the case I still want to shoot for a couple hours. That puts me back at the homestead at 2-3ish pm.
However, after that I am going to start cutting steel and welding up more reactive targets, while hopefully, I can wrangle anyone in the Columbia/Jeff City and surrounding areas to come help make another 12 walls with Shi-Huang-Di (If he is willing of course).
I will supply a bunch of BBQ for this endeavor. I am hoping beer and cigars will be flowing and smoking as well. And if no one comes...more for me!!! Hee hee heee!!!
Regardless I would like to make an open invitation to any and all who would like to come help in this build for the range at CMMG.
I figure I already have more than 2 truckloads of material, and once it is all built it will probably take up even more space, so when it gets time to go out to CMMG again I would ask anyone who can help to take some of this stuff out with me!
I have a ton of tools, but cordless anything will definately be helpful as the welder taxes the house's juice WAAAY to much as is.
The last time Shi-Huang-Di and BetaMO helped out we spent a lot of time drinking and a lot time working so it all evens out in the end! It should be a real casual day so if you have kids, feel free to bring them along. I have two girls (that many of you have met) that just love to play and have a lot of room to do so in.
I have been neglecting the house cleaning a little so don't be too over critical of my slobbery! Hee hee hee!!
If you are interested, IM me and I'll zap you back my phone # and address to get to my place!
I, personally, am lookin foward to a relaxing weekend of welding, drinking, and fun!!!!!!!
It is looking really good for Saturday. I will call you.
