Okay gang, it's only three days till August which means it's only five weeks to Labor Day Weekend.

Are we going to have a big end of the summer blastoff of our own at Millers? I've got a significant stack of computers in my garage that need to be properly disposed of.

That would work out great, one of my youngers brothers will be over from the UK on a visit and I told him I'd take him out shooting, and take lots of pics to impress his mates.
I'm in for sure.

Consider my calendar marked.

hehe....beat me to the punch, I was thinking about hosting a shoot on Labor Day for the Millers gang, but Millers works for me too.

Let's do it on Sunday, tho - Saturday is the Swappers Meet and I never miss it. That way I can shoot whatever toy I nab from the show the day before!

If anyone wants to come up and hit the Johnstown show with me (I know Glimmerman is), they're welcome to join and I was planning on grilling out and stuff afterwards.

I dropped a hint to the grogery store kid across the street the other night about "EXPIRED" canned goods, asked him to keep an eye open, as I knew people who would love some targets.

I'll ask him soon to keep an eye open for some melons toward end of month.

I thought we were talking Monday, my bro arrives Saturday the 3rd 10.48pm, so Sat would be out for sure, Sunday would work but Monday would be great?
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 8:36:11 AM EDT
I'm in.
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 11:35:36 AM EDT
Monday would be good(I have prior engagements sat&sun)
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 1:40:44 PM EDT
I have no problem with Monday.

Craig - Where is the swappers meet? Sounds like something I may want to check out.
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 1:42:47 PM EDT
Count me in
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 7:03:45 PM EDT
I may catch up with glimmerman on the way to the swap meet.
I will drive, though. He scared me on the way to Millers.

The one near me is at Johnstown, Ohio....about 5 minutes from my house. It's a good show usually. There's also one in Kenton, which is north east of Columbus by 40 miles or so. I may hit that one too...depends. You're welcome to come up and scour the junk with Glimmer and me....he's my Enfield bird dog.

As for the shoot, if it's on monday I'm probably out unfortunately....work week starts that evening for me unless I could arrange for a shift swap. Hard to do on a holiday weekend so I may have to sit this one out.
Link Posted: 7/30/2005 6:47:11 AM EDT
I added a poll and put my vote in for Sunday. Any of the three days works for me but many have expressed inavailability on Saturday and having the shoot on Sunday will give most a recovery day before returning to work.

I can't do it monday, I have school :(

School doesn't give Labor day off as a holiday? Even my sorry company gives me Labor Day!

hey now, this is arfcom--GET BOTH

camp and shoot, sunday and monday
Link Posted: 7/30/2005 10:42:45 AM EDT
We will probably set up camp on Sat. and leave sometime Mon.

I could do a campout Sunday, shoot a little Monday too before heading home. That sounds good.
Link Posted: 8/1/2005 5:48:57 AM EDT
I spoke to my bro yesterday and he's hyped, with the little amount of firearm knowledge he has, he thinks "Go Ahead Make My Day" .44mag will be the biggest he will see. He wants to shoot my 12ga and my in-law said he can fire his M44 Nagant, after that I think he will be done

Is Sunday a go?

Well... whatever the gun you're going to get me requires of course!

Bad weekend for me. I used to go to the swappers meet in Johnstown, but anymore, I prefer the Kenton Nationals which is a little bigger, and closer to Indian Lake so I can stay in my camper and go to the Nationals a couple of days.

Are there more guns?
Link Posted: 8/4/2005 7:55:42 AM EDT
Yep... More of everything! I' say it's twice the size as swappers meet.

That means there's twice as many stinky people too! Twice as many hand-painted Dale Earnhart driftwood clocks, twice as many people selling Dreamcatchers made in China, twice as many people pushing triple-wide baby strollers, twice as much FUN!!!!



I can't decide now!!

Twice as many potential Enfield buys. Twice as many. Times two. Double.

You have approx. thirty days.

Guys if the day of the shoot is sunday. I have an old fridge I picked up from work that needs airing out. Otherwise I'll just have to take it to the dump as is. Let me know.

If you go to AIM before then, please give me a hollar...I might have you pick me something up.

Tell me about it! I was going to shoot last weekend, when I realized I have NO 7.62 or .223 in the house! How did THAT happen?!
I tried to stop by AIM last Friday, I've never been there but I knew it was on Lefferson and I know where Lefferson is. Well, traffic was BAD, I got there much later than planned and it isn't on the part of Lefferson that I was on. So I never did find it, they would've been closed by the time I got there if I had. If it had been on the part of Lefferson close to 122, I would've just made it before closing. I think I know where it is now, the OTHER part of Lefferson. Luckily I was coming back to Cincy from up North anyway, so it wasn't a completely wasted trip, and the shoot was cancelled due to rain anyway.

You broke the sacred ammo rule!!?? You know, where it is every good mans duty to keep several thousand rounds at hand in case of zombie attacks.

Hurry before they come to life!
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 9:41:26 AM EDT
I should have about a dozen or so copies of the Bullet Fest 6 video to hand out at the shoot.

If you want one chime in here. I'll make more if I can.
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 10:16:44 AM EDT
If anybody wants to meet at AIM, I am off on Mondays.

The number is 3801, if you're not looking close you'll miss it.

No worries, I said I had no .223 or 7.62, I still have several thousand rounds in OTHER calibers handy. The undead can bring it on! I'll get 'em with 12 gauge, .44 mag, and if all else fails a shee-itload of .22!

Don't forget to find Trent and invite him.

Added to the Subguns board also.


EDIT --- E-mail from Trent, he will be out of town for weekend.

So what is going to be the recognized "BIG Gathering" day?

It looks like I'm planning on driving up from the family outing at Ripley/Aberdeen along Ohio River on Sunday, and this time I'm not coming up 68 & 73 (talked to OHP last time)...

I have mail from the fella that drives the tank in those Tom Raper "price buster" commercials you see periodically on WHIO-TV, wanting to know what day he and some other Indiana crew can come visit, these are good fellas, they run the Indiana subgun shoot.

Anybody in Troy area/ passing by on way to Millers with a pick-up want to come get 2 new trunk lids, and a new door for targets, we had some freight damage, and I was able to get them home 1 at a time.
