I heard the range might be closed for renovations, does anyone have any details? If they're closed we can meet up in the flats, I've been there before with TopCrest and it's safe to shoot there.

I'm all over it. I'll get in touch with Steve_ and see if he knows the particulars of the range status right now.

If you are going to be in staying the weekend in Tucson there is a brand new public range in Tucson over by the Pima County Fairgrounds and the Three Points range out Ajo.

I'll try to find out tomarrow if the range will be open, I'll give ryan a call and he'll let you know. If not the flats are always open. If you guys make it to the flats I'll proabaly show for an hour or two.

Ppppffffttttt. Pay to shoot!? Title II guns only!?

Geez, it's a good thing they're not trying to alienate us poor ass lousy gun owners that can't afford machine guns.

At least it's only $25 just to stare

I was going to go. However, I spent the "play $$$" taking the family to the fair.
I get to go shooting all the time. They get the fair once a year, so let them enjoy it.
It's been a while since I went to the C/G range. So I may need a refresher on how to get there.

... That was fun, couldn't stop gazing at that cute blonde's tits though. Right-sized, cool group - easy going until the unwashed masses that had absolutely no range etiquette at all show up . The buffet was fun, I felt like Imbroglio at the County Café

Yeah! Plan a shoot and not show up..What kind of shit is that?

Missed a few of you that said you would be there.... In the words of our failed leader "Integrity, integrity, integrity!"

BTW, the blonde was a hottie, but the chick that came with the hippy had bigger (enormous!) bewbies.....

Range ettiquite sucked with some of those idiots... The hippy included!

And I came home and cleaned ALL my bolts now that I know how to take them apart

Hey Treetop, you sell those pins that replace the cotter pin in the bolt carriers?

Yeah, I feel bad for missing this one, but I ended up working on the Jeep all day.
Darn thing left me stranded, so by the time we got it running and back to the house, all I wanted to do was drink a beer and watch football.
